Lamb with Spinach (Saag Gosht)

This comes from my Madhur Jaffrey Indian cookbook, which is one of my favorites, and I’m not sure why I haven’t gotten around to posting it before.  It’s easy, if time consuming, and really excellent.  I’ve yet to try one of Madhur’s recipes that I don’t love, but this is a particular favorite of ours.  It can also be done with beef, but I do think it would lose something without the lamb.  I served it with roasted curry cauliflower and broccoli and a flatbread.




Caribbean Reef Chicken

We were really happy with this tasty, easy baked chicken dish, which came from a recipe database called RecipeSource.  I did halve the sugar in the recipe from 1/2 cup to a 1/4 cup, so the rub was more watery than intended.  But lost no flavor and it stayed on the chicken without trouble.  The sweet rub on the chicken paired really well with some spicy garlic roasted green beans as a side.  It also made a lot – I used four split chicken breasts, but you could really use any chicken you liked – a whole cut up chicken would be great for leftovers.



Turkey Bruschetta Burger

Given our glut of fresh tomatoes (and, unfortunately, an early peak now that bot of our ‘mater plants have croaked!), this was an appealing recipe idea from Skinnytaste.  The burger recipe is what really interested me, because I had not seen a turkey burger made with zucchini before!  It actually made an excellent filler.  I left out the breadcrumbs and everything held together well regardless.  Very tasty!  We would make this again.  We served it over a bed of lettuce with more tomatoes.
