Do you know what that (above) is? I had no idea until last week, when my boyfriend & I were checking out the newest Korean grocery store in Cambridge and he taught me about a popular Asian vegetable, lotus roots. I was initially skeptical but, after trying them, I’m a huge fan. We sauteed them in olive oil, red chili pepper paste, and a sprinkle of salt & pepper. Wow, so simple and delicious. Anyways, it’s Thursday and that means links:
Have you ever found a dish at a restaurant that you loved so much, you had to try making it at home? I am obsessed with La Méditerranée‘s Chicken Cilicia (a phyllo pastry filled with an exotic blend of spices, chicken, raisins, & garbanzo beans). In the past, I’ve successfully replicated the dish at home, but the phyllo dough part is a bit labor/time intensive. Thinking of ways I could get that incredible Moroccan flavor without the meat or phyllo hassle, I created this veggie burger last night. And, let me tell you, it turned out far better than I expected. Recipe after the jump!
