Unpacking from my umpteen moves, I came across some of my previous home menus. I remembered that I ate super-healthy most all of my life, even spending about 4 years as a vegetarian. In addtion I cooked as a personal chef, providing many special diet forward recipes. Here now are Feeling Good Noodles, a nice light break from the ensuring holiday fare and a classic little jewel.
FEELING GOOD BOWL OF NOODLES
After 4 moves in 3 years boy I am tired but finally getting into organizing phase, finding things, especially my recipes. Tucked away in the Bijouxs file was the Feeling Good Bowl of Noodles recipe, one I have made a thousand times and loved from a favorite vegetarian cookbook, but somehow forgot.
Feeling Good Bowl of Noodles are basic, quick and satisfying, perfect for our super-busy lives. This soup does the 2 step, a simple process. Step 1: Stir-fry the mushrooms and noodles. Step 2: Add the stock, kale, and green onions. Simmer for a few minutes and add the aminos. That’s it.
The ingredients are flexible, per your taste. For this soup I used a whole wheat fettuccini, sliced crimini mushrooms, and lacinato kale and vegetable stock. Best thing, all are available at Trader Joe’s or your favorite market.
THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS
Amazingly, I have kept the blog and recipes coming through my odyssey of a life over the past 9 years. Wow. Staying true to my mission statement, here.
The “little black dress” is the spine of Bijouxs: Little Jewels from the Kitchen project. The intention is to create a food website that delivers recipes, pantry items, kitchen products and vendors with enduring qualities and exquisite craftsmanship.
The story and theme are a natural evolution of my working talents: food, design and fashion = the Bijouxs. I share what I have learned. Bijouxs is about a style evolved. The structure is a website design that is visual, with a clean classic style, and easy to access.
Please enjoy Feeling Good Noodles. I love hearing you. Cheers.
Tacos, I must admit they are pretty much a staple in my diet. My favorite are these simple fish tacos, made with fresh fish right off the coast of my home. A easy prep and delish any night of the week, for more than just Tuesdays. Enjoy this recipe preview from forthcoming cookbook The Beach House. Continue reading California Fish Tacos
Classic Puttanesca with tomatoes is a house favorite and part of my first cookbook Family & Friends. Now it is joined by a green version of the classic dish, Tagliatelle with Puttanesca Verde. Pasta is always a little jewel.
What can I say of classic puttanesca sauce that has not already been said with my favorite Oven Puttanesca Recipe. Now it’s time to add another version, this time think green. I love new takes on classic recipes, after all “food fads come and go, but the Bijouxs remain.” I have amassed a collection of pasta recipes on the blog over the 9 years and this one with olives is a favorite. But now, Puttanesca Verde comes in and adds depth to this classic dish.
Greens are a favorite in the Bijouxs Kitchen along with olives, so they are natural companions for this dish. I always love the rustic, simple pan sauce pasta recipes- quick, flexible, economical and tasty.
There is not much to prepare this little jewel, boil water for the pasta and start the sauce. I used a whole wheat tagliatelle, to add an additional level of flavor.
The browns and greens of the dish speak of Fall, with robust flavors for the season.
Look on the recipe card for COOK’S NOTES, with simple substitutions and hints.
Join me in welcoming a new robust little jewel to the kitchen.
