Ingredients game. [May. 18th, 2005|02:14 pm]

Hello. Let's play a game. All you need to do is:

  • Either reply to this post with an ingredient,
  • or reply to someone else's comment, quoting the list of ingredients already in that comment and adding one more,
  • or reply to someone else's comment with an idea for a recipe using the ingredients in the comment you're replying to. You can assume that in addition to those ingredients you also have things like flour, oil, water, salt and pepper, standard dried herbs, vinegar, etc. No hard rules on this one, just be reasonable.

I can't stop you from adding ridiculous ingredients, but you probably won't get any followups if you do. You can play as many times and in as many branches as you like.

I normally hate aubergines, but that sounds rather tasty!

What sort of dressing? I'm guessing the bog standard French vinaigrette wouldn't really do. Maybe something Italianish? Or a sweeter dressing? I know a lovely dressing that only requires red vinegar, one used vanilla pod, sugar, and heat. It goes really well with rocket.

Yes yes. The red wine vinegar thing would be perfect!

Heat red wine vinegar in a pan with one used vanilla pod and sugar to taste. (Sorry but I never did get any pointers on quantities or ratios or heating times.)
When enough water has boiled off so that the mixture is slightly syrupy, remove from heat and drizzle over salad. The aim is for a dressing that is sweet but tangy. Goes well with a simple rocket and parmesan shavings salad.

Sounds like it might make a handy substitute for balsamic vinegar.
