kiwimoogle84: I use pesto, actually. I don't have fresh basil, though I'd love an herb garden. Think Geek has a pretty nifty herb kit I might pick up.


I grow basil in a pot on the windowsill. As long as you've got a south facing window, it's hard to go wrong. All it takes is a trip to the local garden shop to grab some potting soil and a couple/few small plants or a packet of seeds. I've gotten a ton of the best pesto I've ever had from it, and I can add it to anything I want without paying exorbitant prices at the store. And it makes the room smell like basil, which is a definite plus.

JackieRabbit: kiwimoogle84: JackieRabbit: kiwimoogle84: ou said you use zucchini as a dildo, thus you can understand my assumption.

I used to be poorer and married at the same time. Things had to be spice up with the wife and I knew how to improvise. Watermelon just wouldn't work.

/yes, a food tag

Good man.

No, as far as watermelon goes I think the seeds would ruin it for me.

If anyone cares, on tonight's menu is a pork tenderloin with wild rice and sweet potatoes in a honey orange glaze. Dinner's at 6.

Wow, coincidence. For dinner last light, I made pork loin chops seared and then braised with apples, curry, brown sugar, chicken stock and onions and finished with a sauce made by reducing the pan drippings and whisking in sour cream. We had this with sweet potatoes and english peas. Tonight: chicken piquant with herbed rice and salad.


You, sir. If you start a food blog I want to be the first to know. That sounds mouthwatering.

Come to think of it, here's a simple pasta salad sure to enrage both the anti zucchini and the anti-eggplant contingents.

Penne with sauteed spears of zucchini and eggplant and red onion (sauteed with a little red wine vinegar) with a balsamic vinegar - dijon mustard dressing and a ton of fresh basil tossed with it at the end while everything is still warm. Then let it cool in the refrigerator for a few hours so the flavors can mix.

How to prepare any squash in the fall:

Cut in half. Add butter and season. Wrap in tinfoil. Throw into edge of fire. Have a couple Octoberfest. Remove from fire with tongs and eat.

My favorite is acorn squash with Penzie's Vindaloo.

I cheat my way to perfection.

I like zucchini.

For those of you who do not, this is a way to prepare it that will allow you to eat it and not gag

1. Throw away zucchini
2. Get a pound of bacon
3. Cook bacon
4. Eat bacon

MaxxLarge: Screw you all. Vegetables are f*cking awesome. In fact, I'm gonna roast me a few heads of fresh broccoli for dinner tonight.

For the enlightened, you should really try this sometime. All you do is cut off the woody bits, separate the florets, then toss them in a generous amount of a good olive oil. Spread the stuff out on a cookie sheet, and salt/pepper to taste. Then put the whole shebang in a 400° oven for about a half-hour. Ir's done when the tips are just a little bit crispy.

If you've never done this before, it's a goddamned revelation. Best broccoli you've ever had. Roasting really brings out the natural glutamates, so you won't even need to butter it.

This works for just about ANY green vegetable, actually. I also do it with green beans, asparagus, and ESPECIALLY brussels sprouts. Oh my GOD, brussels sprouts are fantastic roasted.

Seriously. Try this. You'll thank me.

In the oven now. I used garlic salt, rosemary, black pepper and sea salt. I used the only olive oil I had, but I don't know if it is "good" olive oil or not. Bertoli extra virgin?

Stuffed zucchini.

Basically, you take everything that you would put in a lasagna ... except for the noodles, and stuff it into a zucchini.

Yeah, no. Rosemary is barely edible as it is. You need to mince that shiat to make ready for human consumption.


Yea, I don't grill with rosemary. I just use the grill wok to fry vegetables, great for fajitas too.

I'll make it again.

I did two heads of broccoli, paired with thick cut pork chops from the grill.

It fed me, my wife, our 7 year old son, 11 year old daughter. Both the kids were spooning for seconds on the broccoli inside of 2 minutes. My son asked me and then his mom if we were going to eat the greens on our plate, he started to ask his sister and she told him not to think about it. Needless to say their was no leftover broccoli. Going to do 4 heads next time.

I ended up a touch dry on the chops .. temp was 160 coming off the grill with one at 170.. shiat happens.

Isn't is amazing how people don't understand that people can taste differently? It's a fact, scientists have noted the genetics for it and it the actual taste buds can be different between individuals.

It is actually the case that people who like green vegetables have less of the taste receptors on their tongue for the nasty bitter flavours green vegetables like broccoli contain. When someone says that green vegetables taste nasty, it is true for them because they can really taste something the veggie lovers cannot. When people insist that their green veggies taste great they simply don't have the receptors to pick up the nasty flavours. The experience is actually different for different people.

Also, why the f*ck do people get so concerned about what other people eat? Want to share a recipe, fine, want to berate someone for not liking something you like, maybe go find something constructive to do.

Probably said already, but sauteed in bacon grease, with a chopped red onion, and a can of diced tomatoes. Crumble the bacon and add it last, mix it all up, cover it with mozzarella, and let it cook for about 20 minutes at medium heat. The oiliness lubricates your arteries so your blood flows easier.

Once had the cook in a hunting lodge serve me what he said was apple pie. After I finished and said it was good he told me there was only 1 apple in that pie the rest was zuccini. His cold meatloaf sandwiches with mayo really sucked though.

Oh I was joking. Beets aren't a green vegetable anyway. I dislike a food 99.9% of Americans revere so I know I'm not one to talk :)

Nidiot : It is actually the case that people who like green vegetables have less of the taste receptors on their tongue for the nasty bitter flavours green vegetables like broccoli contain.

Broccoli is slightly bitter to me, but a little bit of salt or butter overcomes that.

Unless it's been boiled in water, then it's inedible, ewww.

An interesting taste experiment is to try one of those miracle fruits (either fresh, or in tablet form). It causes the sweet receptors on your tongue to temporarily react to sour and bitter flavors as well. It was featured on an episode of CSI.

After using one of those berries, my friends and I were able to munch on raw lemons, and drink shots of vinegar (regular white vinegar just tastes like sugar water, balsamic vinegar is a bit sweeter, lemon juice tastes like an overly sweet lemonade).

The true power of that berry though is eating just slightly sour/bitter foods, let me just say that those were the most delicious oranges and pineapple slices that I've eaten in my life. Also, grapefruit juice straight up was delicious.

And now a scary thought, you know how some liquor has a slight bitter taste. Yeah, the miracle fruit berries kills that.

My miracle fruit sampler platter (those shots are all 1/3rd vodka, 2/3rds juice).

The secret to making anything tasty: deep-fry, deep-fry, deep-fry.

On the other hand, you can also make a carrot cake, substituting shredded zucchini for carrots (or half of the carrots--what do I care what you do with your vegetables in the privacy of your kitchen?) and then frosting the cake with a sickly sweat, life-threatening boiled frosting. Even better than zucchini bread.

For my part I like zucchini. And eggplant. And onions. Fruits and vegetables generally. Even turnips.

But broccoli is still pure, concentrated evil, of course. Send that damned stuff to college (make a cauliflower out of it) and then slap some cheese sauce on it.

That's another thing you can do to make almost anything tasty--cheese sauce. Hell, even Cheez-Whiz(TM) or a no-name knock-off is better than straight broccoli.

And butter, lots of butter, pepper, what not.

slice that zuchini longways into quarters (and the small zuchini are better -use your big ones for bread, homey).

drizzle with olive oil, give a few shakes of lawry's and lemon pepper, grill for a couple minutes on each side.

serve and eat.

eat it, just eat it.

Get yourself an egg and beat it.

well said, ms. kwi. things peachy?

'Tis. Been inventing great new ways to get fat in my kitchen (marmalade pork chops and sweet potatoes in wild rice for dinner) and generally enjoying life. How are you?

old and cranky and stuck at work for another 5 1/2 hours

marmalade pork chops sound good but I don't like sweet potatoes. or any other orange vegetable. because of snooki.

Trust me, the oompa loompas are missing one.

If you've never had sweet potato fries, you're missing out though.

nope nope nope. icky. and i really really doubt the fine ms. kiwi went all pork chop city but I'm willing to beg on my knees for photographic proof

Oh honey. Why do you "really really doubt" such things? Fool. I create pieces of heaven in my kitchen.

I direct thy attention to the visual below: sweet potatoes in wild rice with marmalade pork chops and green beans.

Lawyered.

yes, but my green beans i made tonight I also picked an hour earlier out of my garden. neener neener

You said you really doubted I could cook. I prove you wrong. And you one up me? I'm hurt. *weeps*

Kidding.

Nice! I wish I had a garden. Don't have that kind of time.

lol! no. that you got fat. that's what I wanted photo evidence of silly, not food porn! you can't fap to that!

vudukungfu: You're reading a recipe from a girl who didn't know the difference between a zuke and a cuke in a grocery store where they are labeled.


Came here to say this. What kind of retard can't tell the difference between the two? Do they also confuse beets and radishes?

As for making zucchini palatable, when I was a kid, my mom made zucchini chocolate cake. No, you can't tell it has zucchini in it - it just tastes like an uber-moist chocolate cake. Unfortunately, I don't have her recipe any longer, but Google turns up some results.

MaxxLarge: Screw you all. Vegetables are f*cking awesome. In fact, I'm gonna roast me a few heads of fresh broccoli for dinner tonight.

For the enlightened, you should really try this sometime. All you do is cut off the woody bits, separate the florets, then toss them in a generous amount of a good olive oil. Spread the stuff out on a cookie sheet, and salt/pepper to taste. Then put the whole shebang in a 400° oven for about a half-hour. Ir's done when the tips are just a little bit crispy.

If you've never done this before, it's a goddamned revelation. Best broccoli you've ever had. Roasting really brings out the natural glutamates, so you won't even need to butter it.

This works for just about ANY green vegetable, actually. I also do it with green beans, asparagus, and ESPECIALLY brussels sprouts. Oh my GOD, brussels sprouts are fantastic roasted.

Seriously. Try this. You'll thank me.


I'm going to second this, and also add to the list:

1. Cauliflower. I never liked it much, but roasted as per above, it is divine.

2. Carrots and fennel. Same deal - never really liked cooked carrots, but cut them into chunks, slice in a couple of bulbs of fennel, and roast everything with olive oil, salt and pepper. Superb, and has become a Thanksgiving staple (although they get roasted on a sheet pan on the grill, since the oven's busy with other stuff).
