Broccoli can create a pesto like effect without the extra work of making a pesto. You add the goat cheese to the sauce and it gets creamy. You add sausage for that crunchy bite in between and fresh sage leaves for that earthy flavor. This Orecchiette With Sausage, Broccoli And Goat Cheese will be your go to weeknight meal. It’s flavor bang, with a good balance of meat, veggie, carb and dairy. The best part is that this meal gets ready in just 10 minutes.
I am not crazy about mushrooms but somehow, I find myself reaching to it every time I need a quick meal. And these days, I need speedy meals quite often throughout the week. Last month, when I did the lunch spread, there was a mushroom and sausage side dish prepared with red wine. The dish was a big hit. Everyone loved it and there were no leftovers. It was quite luscious and rich.
As part of my daily schedule, I try dedicating some time to blog hopping, reading books, learning, socializing and getting inspired. In between all this, cooking techniques and recipes get pinned and bookmarked, to be prepared later in my kitchen. While some of these get implemented almost right away, others sit quietly in some corner of my tiny brain until they get remembered and relished!
I heard about couscous for the first time in 'Top Chef', one of my favorite cooking show. There was this chef (I am horrible at remembering names) and she would cook couscous in every other challenge. It always looked delicious and I used to wonder about the taste and texture. I didn't had any luck finding couscous in India. As soon as I saw it in the shops out here, I knew I had to give it a try.
