:. Stone cold fever

How to cuddle yourself in such hard times? Pumpking soup is the answer. Visto che in casa si tende a smangiucchiare e ingrassare, vi propongo una ricetta buonissima a base di verdure e patate: la zuppa di zucca.

onion – cipolla
pumpkin – zucca
potatoes – patate
carrots – carote
evo oil – olio evo
spices (paprika, turmeric, pepper, chili pepper, ginger, cinnamon) – spezie (paprica, curcuma, pepe, peperoncino, zenzero, cannella)

mince the onion, and brown it in the oil with the spices you like

then add the pumpkin, and the potatoes

add the minced carrots too, some water and salt

let it boil for about 30 minutes, then mash it up with a blender.

Let’s all fight against this stone cold fever

 

.: More times

I am developing a passion for chicken in a sauce of tomato and spices.

and I have lots of onions…

and onions…

so I’m gonna cook this spiced tomato sauce chicken many more times…

see previous post for the recipe of sauce. what about the chicken ? put the chicken pieces in a bowl with lemon juice, evo oil, garlic and all the spices you like: pepper, coriander, turmeric, cumin, ginger, paprika and whatever you like. Let the chicken there 1 or 2 hours, then put it in the pan where you have previously cooked the sauce and let it cook until done.

.: Love me two times

Sometimes you make a dish and something on the side, then you realize that you can mix all together and it would be great. A volte sembra un secondo e un contorno, ma poi ti rendi conto che se li metti insieme fanno una bella insalata di pollo. Peccato che siamo solo in Aprile perché credo sia un fantastico piatto estivo.

Pollo speziato in insalata con origano. Spieced chicken and oregano salad.

evo oil – olio evo
red onion (shallot) – scalogno
coriander – coriandolo
ginger – zenzero
nutmeg – noce moscata
oregano – origano
salt – sale
and obviously chicken – pollo

Put the spices in the pan with the oil and lightly warm the mixture. Mettete le spezie nell’olio in padella a fuoco basso.

Cut the chicken in small pieces and wet it with the lemon. Tagliate il pollo a pezzi piccoli e bagnatelo con il limone.

Then put the onion and the chicken in the pan and go on cooking. Add oregano and salt at the end. Mettete il pollo in padella con la cipolla, bagnate con altro limone e cuocete. Sale e origano alla fine.

If you have lettuce, you can make a hot-cold chicken salad.


Se avete della lattuga o altra insalata, questo pollo può anche essere mischiato all’insalata per fare un’insalata di pollo caldo-freddo.

Oh well… even one time would do. La primavera !!
