Shared a video for his recipe I found on Facebook a while back. I got a Facebook memory of it last week and I had to share again saying I still hadn’t tried it….se I did.
Overall this is really simply except it’s not juicy enough to do the no-boil option for the noodles.
First you need to boil your noodles—I used jovial gluten free noodles. i used the whole package of 12 as I was making 4 layers. I placed three as the bottom layer on a greased pan.
For my bottom layer I used mashed potatoes—mine were made from scratch with a little butter and some sour cream, but you can use your favorite recipe or even instant. I made about 1/2 layer.
The potatoes are topped with a layer off noodles.
The next layer was cottage cheese, egg and Parmesan. I mixed 16 ounces of full fat cottage cheese, 1 egg, 1/2 cup parmesan.
The cottage cheese is topped with another layer of noodles.
I then added a layer of sauerkraut and mu herons. This was a fresh caraway kraut but you can use your favorite and vary amount to your liking. This was about 8 ounces. You don’t need to drain it perfectly because a little liquid in this dish is okay. i used a small can of sliced mushrooms and scattered those drained mushrooms on the sauerkraut.
Then we add the final layer of noodles. And cover with cheese of choice.
So Bon Appetit graces me daily with piles of new recipes…piles. Today a recipe caught my eye—well two. One for a Greek spinach rice and the other was a slightly Japanese style corn rice. I’m hitting both!
I thought about his since like 2 pm when I got the email and knew that salmon was the best choice to make this happen….alas. The freezers gave me Cobia. i didn’t find fresh corn but I had canned white corn.
I failed at chronicling every detail but I do have some pics.
For the corn…
1 cup rice
1 can white corn
2 cups water less the corn liquid and 1 Tbl soy sauce/tamari…combined should be 2 cups
I garnished with some fresh cilantro and fresh rosemary because that’s what I had…
I did it in the Instant Pot on the rice setting.
For the Cobia….
Cobia got a quick marinade in some lemon olive oil, tamari, garlic and onion powder. Then pan sautéed.
So this is the most en place my mise has ever been
Making some tofu/garbanzo lettuce wraps/tacos and a Mediterranean themed salad.
You will see that i am using premarinated moroccan seasoned tofu–the flavor is gentle and mixes well with the penzeys turkish seasoning….trust me, the result tasted mediterranean even if the labels dont fit;-).
The salad is lemon juice and olive oil mixed with tomato, artichoke hearts, cucumber, young bell pepper, red onion with the penzeys air dried shallots , lemon pepper, garlic and some paprika.
So many things on the table or used to make this meal came from so many people–gifts, items i received after their death, etc…so even if you don’t see yourself there consider that so many gifts and memories went into the prep as well.
Once again, i smoked a turkey.
I didnt follow my own recipe so it wasnt as perfect as usual (and grilled turkey people is great!)
Heres a peek at her prep:
Mashed potatoes, yams and pumpkin:
Gluten free stuffing:
Gluten free green beans with a nod to walmart for gluten free cream of mushroom and sprouts for gluten free fried onions.
Pickled peppers with goat cheese, cucumber and mint:
A thanksgiving cocktail with sparkling apple, cranberry, sage, lemon and mionetto rose in our waterford flutes:
In the background of the table pic, you will see Jim’s watergate salad of pistachio, pineapple, nuts, etc.
And our pies:
Scratch pumpkin and a pecan with gluten free crust.
