North African Chicken Couscous

From 177milk Street

I modified some of the ingredients and scaled it back to a large single serving or for 2 serving dish.

  • Curry powder mix in place of ground tumeric
  • White onion instead of red onion
  • Dried Japanese chili pods instead of Jalapenos
  • Sambal instead of Harissa

This technic allows you to steam the couscous  while the meal is cooking.

Didn’t get any pictures of the process here’s the result

Roasted bell pepper salad

A bit of a twist from a pasta / bacon salad , inspired from a recipe found on the internet made with available ingredients.

IMG_3434

Instead of oven roasting the peppers, I opted to flame char the peppers on the burner

IMG_3436

The peppers were then, sliced thin.

Using a vegetable peeler, slice the yellow squash, and chop into fine noodle like pieces if you don’t have a spiralizer.

dressing, 3 tbls olive oil 1 tbls seasoning (oregano) 2 tbls rice vinegar lemon juice salt and pepper

Curry chicken

Adapted from Chatelaine.com

The original recipe calls for chicken thighs , I have some small chicken breast pieces available.

As I have accumulated some canned coconut milk, I found a recipe that used ingredients that I had on hand.

Sauté onions in skillet with oil and a good amount of curry powder.

Add the chicken and stir to coat. Salt as necessary.


Add coconut milk, potatoes, carrots. Cover and simmer a while. Uncover and finish cooking till the sauce reduces to your liking, add the peas and seasonings.


Warm through.


Serve over rice.

A good technic for cooking ,utilizing coconut milk , a tasty dish.

Brussels sprouts saute

here is a quick and easy recipe Diane made  for sauteed Brussels sprouts. Basically melt butter in skillet, add some sliced carrot, saute for a few minutes and add Brussels sprouts and leeks, a tablespoon of water, cover and let steam. season with salt, pepper and caraway seeds. Serve with a dollop of sour cream if desired.

Leeks have been the go to veggie for that onion flavor but with some crunch. Excellent on the grille also. Here with the sprouts, butter and carrots a great combination.

Tomato and carrot sauce

Plain tomato sauce can be boring but amp it up with same veggies and it really is an improvement.

This sauce started out with sauteed onions, then some diced carrots added, cooked till soft.

A link of sausage, casing removed, added and cooked, finally, a can (14 oz) of diced tomatoes and half a can (or less) of tomato soup (Cambell’s), undiluted. Simmer and season.
