Weekend Herb Blogging #178 - Roundup

Weekend Herb Blogging, that is already in its 3rd Year, created by Kalyn of Kalyn’s Kitchen and now Kalyn has passed it on to Haalo, of Cook (almost) Anything At Least Once. Prof. Kitty of The Cabinet of Prof. Kitty is going to be next week's host. If you'd like to participate, make sure you check out the new rules and send your entries to profkitty AT gmail DOT com. I have received many interesting entries with ingredients unknown to me, great recipes showing different ways of using the ingredients I find in my pantry.



Now enjoy those great entries that I received from all over the world!

The first entry has arrived right from Sydney, Australia from Anna of Morsels & Musings.


Anna introduces hominy, also known as nixtamal, is dried corn kernels which have been treated with an alkali, a process known as nixtamalisation. She shares the recipe of Pozole Verde (Mexican Hominy, Tomatillo & Pepita Stew).

TS and JS of the
[eatingclub] vancouver, from Vancouver, BC, Canada shows us how to prepare Suan Cai (Pickled Mustard Greens).

They cooked a pig trotter and suan cai soup. Doesn't it looks delicious?

Bird's eye view of Food and Laughter, from India, says she loves potatoes in any form, except raw.
She shares a recipe of one of her favourite dish of her childhood: potato raita.

Haalo of Cook (almost) Anything at Least Once from Melbourne, Australia shares a recipe for Tonno di Coniglio.

For flavouring the rabbit she uses parsley and basil. What a lovely dish!

Graziana of Erbe in Cucina (Cooking with Herbs) from Italy.

She shares a recipe of baked broad beans with balm.

Muneeba of An Edible Symphony from Long Island, NY, USA shares a Chicken Qorma recipe.


The chicken gets cooked in a delicious broth flavored wih mint and coriander so it turns out fresh and aromatic.

City Girl of City Girl Lifestyle, from Washington, DC, USA participates first time in WHB.


She shares a recipe of a cabbage salad, that became one of her favorites because it is fast, and despite the strong bite of the chile, really lets the flavor of the cabbage emerge.

Genie of The Inadvertent Gardener from Oakland, CA invites us for a glass of Thyme Bloody
Mary.


She had the idea of this while daydreaming about which ingredients would go well with thyme.

Joanne from Boston, MA, of the blog Eats Well With Others submitted Cilantro-Jalapeno
Hummus.


She had some forgotten cilantro left in her fridge, so she used it in this tasty spread.

B of My Clean Eating from Nashville, TN shares a recipe of a spring roasted vegetable salad.



Christine of Kits Chow from Vancouver, Canada shares her Bibimbap recipe.


It is a dish of steamed white rice with fried beef surrounded by namul and topped with a fried egg. Namul is a Korean spinach salad. Among namul she also serves asparagus that is one of the most nutritionally well-balanced vegetables.

Kalyn of Kalyn's Kitchen, from Salt Lake City, Utah USA shows us How to Cook Artichokes in a Pressure Cooker.


She shares some information about artichokes and lets you know that the bud is completely edible in younger artichokes, but in more mature plants, only the center heart and tips of the leaves are edible, and there is a choke which must be removed.

Jerry of Jerry’s Thoughts, Musings, and Rants from Ontario, Canada shares a recipe for
Skewered Chicken Tikka with Cilantro Sauce.


He is always up for a challenge and though he particpate since long in the event and already shared loads of infos about their favourite herb, cilantro he still found something!

Laurie of A Canadian in King Parakramabahu’s Court from Colombo, Sri Lanka introduces Gotukola, that is an herb that grows wild in that part of the world.



She also share a nice recipe of Gotukola Sambol. Interesting culinary journey!

Tomato, Ricotta and Anchovies Plum-cake.
