Tomato Quiche

Source: Recipes for a Small Planet
Date tried: January 31, 2018
Yield: 1 10” pie
Time needed: 1 hour

This was quite good except for the crust; the recipe calls for lining the crust with sliced tomatoes, but that made it rather soggy. Otherwise the filling was fine and we enjoyed it.

Date tried:November 2, 2017
Yield: 4-6 servings

This dish is really good. Do try it. It won kudos all around the table. While much the same procedure as the better known Huevos Rancheros, it has a distinctively Indian flavour.

Bunna (Coffee with Egg Yolk)

Source: The Recipe of Love
Made: December 12, 2013
Yield: 1 serving
Time to make: Adds less than a minute to preparing coffee

The author describes this as “a rich and lovely treat and it’s good for you.”  I haven’t really found a noticeable change in the taste of the coffee, but certainly an egg yolk adds protein, energy and vitamins not found in coffee alone. So it’s a good way to start the day, or to give oneself a quick pick-me-up in the late afternoon.

A trick to remember, to avoid chunks of cooked yolk, is to begin by stirring a little hot liquid (no more than a tablespoon) into the yolk first.  Add more, stirring in one spoonful at a time, until it is liquidy enough to pour into the coffee.

I usually drink my coffee from a mug, but I put it in a wine glass so you could see the coffee.

Kin’che (Cracked Wheat with Eggs)

Source: The Recipe of Love
Date tried: July 9, 2012
Yield: 4 servings
Time needed: 20 to 40 minutes, depending on choice of grain

Although this is listed in the Breakfast section of The Recipe of Love, it is also suitable as a side dish with any meal.

I have altered the instructions in two ways. First I reconciled the instructions with the list of ingredients. Although the list of ingredients calls for only ½ cup of spiced butter, the instructions called for 2 full cups.

Also, in my experience cracked wheat ordinarily takes only 15-20 minutes to absorb the water over a simmer heat. I am sure if I left the saucepan on a boil for 35-45 minutes as the original printed instructions dictate, I would be setting off smoke alarms big time as the wheat burned black in a dried-out pot.  Also a covered pot and a lower heat saves energy and keeps the kitchen cooler. So I have revised those instructions to match my actual practice.
