Baked Squash with Spicy Bulgur Pilaf Recipe

I volunteer every month for an event called Produce On Wheels With Out Waste (POWWOW), and come home with bushels of food as a thank you. The event allows foods that may not be pretty enough for the market or are leftovers to still get to people who are in need. The event allows you to purchase 60 lbs of food for $10. I love this program!

So when I got home a couple of weeks ago and I had so many dang acorn squash that I didn’t know what to do.

Patriotic Pigments: Eat your red, white & blue!

 

Looking down at my breakfast this morning, luscious berries in a cushion of oatmeal, I was suddenly overcome with patriotism. Well, at least I was struck by the patriotic resemblance to our nation’s red, white and blue banner as Fourth of July nears.

And so, I became inspired to talk about the colors in our food! Continue reading “Patriotic Pigments: Eat your red, white & blue!”

How to get your tomato naked

How to skin a tomato!

  • To blanch tomatoes, start by boiling some water
  • Once boiling, turn off the stove, taking the pot off the heat, and put the tomatoes in
  • After 10 minutes, or once the tomato skins start to split open, put them into some cool water. I used room temperature water (no such thing as cold water out of the tap here in the Arizona summer season!)
  • If the skin hasn’t already split, you can easily pierce it with a knife
  • Be careful when skinning your tomatoes, the little bit of liquid between the skin and the flesh is still pretty hot! When piercing the skin, roll the tomato around a few times in the water to cool off the newly exposed tomato flesh

And that’s how to get a naked tomato, skinned and ready for sauce or soup.

Want to take this journey with me?
