Grilled wedges are one of my favorite and easiest ways to enjoy sweet potatoes. The best thing about this recipe though is the perfect sweet heat chili lime sauce pairing. Just a few a few ingredients that net a lot of flavor. They go fast so make enough!
I’m having way too much fun with my new InstaPot. I’m still learning, but have been to churn out some good recipes, mostly traditional classics that I’ve converted for pressure cooking. This Southern classic black-eyed peas recipe is made vegan, so I had to do a little extra to replicate the smoke from what would have been smoked meat. I think I figured it out. I went deep into the classic rock vault for some inspiration. Enjoy.
I’m not looking to start any beefs with this jollof rice recipe as I know jollof can be pretty polarizing. I’m talking MC Shan vs. KRS 1 if you’re Nigerian or Ghanaian. I’m just a brother who likes ethnic rice dishes with intense flavors. And of all the rice dishes from around the world, jollof from the motherland is by far the best. Paella, jambalaya, arroz con pollo, etc. I love them all, but they can’t hold a candle to jollof. I’ve been in the lab working on my jollof skills and finally feel like I’m at a point where I can share. Enjoy!
Grilling season for me is all year round. I’m not much for rain, but the elements generally do not stop me from that grill life, especially during football playoffs season. Big games are scheduled this winter weekend so I’ll be pretending I’m vacationing in the islands with an ice cold Red Stripe Lager and these slow-smoked jerk ribs. Make this for your gameday experience or wait til the summer if you’re not inclined to deal with the weather. Enjoy
Collard greens are a weekly staple in our home. We have our traditional Sunday Dinner recipe that ain’t changing. However, I do keep quite a few of what I call weeknight greens recipes. These are meant for us to explore the greatness of the humble but nutritious collard greens but within the context of our busy lives. So these are actually quick hitters. This curried collard greens recipe falls into this category. As its the norm, we explore cultures through food in an effort to become culturally aware as well deepen our empathy for others. Collard greens more than any other vegetable/food is most often the vessel for these explorations. Enjoy
Sorry I’m a little late with this post, but it’s actually an annual Kwanzaa celebration recipe. After hosting Christmas dinner, mentally I’m content to ride with leftovers for a few days. However, with Kwanzaa, there is no rest for the weary. Therefore I go with simple, low involvement recipes such as this Piri Piri Shrimp. It’s usually an appetizer on my menu, but can easily be made for a fancy weeknight main dish.
