Having twins makes certain parts of the day rough. For me, it’s often dinner and bedtime. By bedtime I’m exhausted and keeping life a good time takes a lot of energy; usually more than what I have at this stage in my pregnancy. Enter amazing friends. When your husband works long hours and often has to work late truly good friends come over and help me put the twins to bed. Our most frequent and generous friend (my bestie) convinced me to post this dish as she was the last person I shared it with. I try to always make her dinner when she’s here as a very small thank you for her time and energy in putting up with this crazy household.
This recipe is my weekday secret. I make it all the time. It’s quick, fresh, and makes great use of leftover proteins. Oh and you have little dishes to wash. Winner all around right?
I use whichever protein I have. This could mean chicken, steak, fish, whatevs. If want to go vegetarian add a bit more hummus. Fridge running dry in the protein department? Crack open a can of tuna or black beans. It’s truly simple fresh food that makes you feel satisfied and good.
1 pita, warmed or toasted
1-2 tbsp hummus
1 portion of leftover protein
1/4 cucumber, chopped
Handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
Handful of bite size pieces of lettuce, washed and dried
1 green onion, sliced
50 grams feta, crumbled
Drizzle of olive oil and red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper
Spread hummus on top of warmed or toasted pita. Top with protein, lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, green onion, feta and drizzle with oil and vinegar. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
I feel like apologizing; since becoming pregnant I’ve felt pretty low energy and very uninspired by food. Unless it’s ice cream, soft serve preferred, citrus, or fresh baked bread we’re taking talking about.The past few months have mostly been filled with me mostly just trying to get by. That usually means meals eaten with a spoon and that take less than 20-30 minutes to prepare. Well, hopefully no longer my friends. The tide just might be turning and this is the recipe that set me straight.
The other night, we kicked it old school and I made the cover of Bon Appetit from March 2013. They’ve called it a Spicy Thai Noodle Soup aka Chicken Khao Soi. I made a couple of adjustments to suit what was available at my local grocery store and the un-spicy needs of my hubby to shape it into a good old Thai Noodle Soup.
I really enjoy keeping my old copies of BA around. When my subscription delivery runs late, I can look back on the current month to find a great recipe that is in season. This works well for me when inspiration is running low and Pinterest has been sourced to the ends of the earth. I’m sure you can relate. 😉
I used dried Ancho chiles in this recipe. They’re at the low end of the spicy scale (as in not at all), but they add a ton of flavour to the dish. They were also the only dried chiles available to me at my grocery store. Feel free to use what works or you. The two other recommended chiles will be spicier.
Khao Soi Paste
4 large dried Ancho, New Mexico, or guajillo chiles, stemmed, halved, seeded
2 medium shallots, halved
8 garlic cloves, peeled and halved
1 x 2″ piece ginger, peeled and roughly sliced
¼ cup chopped cilantro stems
1 tbsp ground coriander
1 tbsp ground turmeric
1 tsp curry powder
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 x 14-oz. cans unsweetened coconut milk, light is fine
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1.5 lbs skinless, boneless chicken thighs,cut into 2″ pieces
1 lb ramen or Chinese egg noodles
3 tbsp (or more) fish sauce
1 tbsp (packed) palm sugar or light brown sugar
Sliced red onion (try a quick pickle! we loved it in this soup), bean sprouts, cilantro sprigs, crispy fried onions or shallots, chili oil, and lime wedges (for serving).
Place chiles in a small heatproof bowl, add boiling water to cover, and let soak until softened, 25–30 minutes.
