adventures in the kitchen

Monday, April 29, 2013

today I accidentally discovered a way of making vegetables taste really good.
veggies in question: leek and carrots

cook the leek until soft, add carrots (don't let them cook too long)
now I usually add some crème fraiche or light cream, but I didn't have any,
all that was there was a cheese mix, half and half of gorgonzola and cream cheese.
a tablespoon of that mixed in with the veggies, plus some rice, and voila, lunch!


the cheese mix was left over from baking it on bread, baguette tastes best but dark bread works just as well. try it... you'll live off of it.

    I love veggies any which way....but I do remember a time when I only would eat raw carrots...and finally tried broccoli with cheese on it, that got me hooked!

    Oh I could see that with blue cheese too! YUMMO! Another trick I use is dressing leeks and carrots (LOVE THE taste of leek!) with balsamic vinegar and a bit of olive oil. Works with any veggies, but really good w/brussel sprouts!

Now I have some dark pumpernickel rye and am going to try your mixture on it! Sounds fabulous!

HUGS and another one for dear Georgie!
