FFwD: Green-as-Spring Pork Stew

Green as Spring Pork Stew

Originally, this French Fridays with Dorie recipe called for veal. I haven’t really eaten veal since becoming an un-vegetarian (uh, 1994 1995?) and I didn’t really see the need to use it here. Not when there’s…PORK! So, yeah, I subbed the veal for pork shoulder. And I also made mine more broth-y by using a little bit less meat and adding some wine to de-glaze the pan.

There are a number of steps to this and it’s kind of a big production, so it’s probably best for a weekend project. . . . → Read More: FFwD: Green-as-Spring Pork Stew

FFwD: Quiche Maraichère

FFwD: Quiche Maraichère

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie is for Quiche Maraichère, which is basically a vegetable-filled quiche, but with the cheese on top. The recipe can be found online here, but of course, it’s also in Around My French Table.

My tart crust was my favorite whole wheat crust and although it shrank quite a bit during the par-baking, it turned out just fine.

I used carrot, onion, garlic, and some artichoke hearts for my vegetables (I did not use the celery or the leeks) – mainly because I did not have . . . → Read More: FFwD: Quiche Maraichère

FFwD: Vegetable Barley Soup with the Taste of Little India, with Cilantro Pistou

FFwD: Vegetable Barley Soup with the Taste of Little India

This, like all of the French Fridays with Dorie Indian-influenced recipes this was good, but I wanted a little more…something. It was a very nice rainy, cold weather meal though. The only substitutions I made were hul-less barley for the pearl barley and a sweet potato for the parsnip – only because these were the ingredients I had and I didn’t want to go out and get pearl barley and a parsnip. Lazy.

The recipe for the soup can be found online here at the Chicago . . . → Read More: FFwD: Vegetable Barley Soup with the Taste of Little India, with Cilantro Pistou

FFwD: Scallop and Onion Tartes Fines

FFwD: Scallop and Onion Tartes Fines

Well, this French Fridays with Dorie was a little different — but in a really good way. I didn’t quite know what to expect but it seemed sort of like a scallop pizza to me. And what does pizza need? A little cheese. I know some people do not like to mix cheese with seafood but — I am not one of those people.

I also decided to add a little color to the top, by way of some chopped arugula leaves. The pop of green was exactly what . . . → Read More: FFwD: Scallop and Onion Tartes Fines
