Barging into the cooking thread because I didn't know we had a cooking thread

Today I made what I think is a pretty close approximation of Gyudon for someone who has never actually had Gyudon, sorta.




I omitted the sugar because I'm coming off a fast and I didn't wanna spike my heart into oblivion and added oyster sauce so it was probably more savory and less caramely than it could have been but I'm happy with it.

False. There is only one electron and it has never stopped.

So the plating might be underwhelming and yes the tea is Lipton but I'm still happy with how breakfast turned out.

https://ibb.co/gSsTbC6

Chickpeas in hot pepper sauce, hummus, labneh, fresh mozzarella, green olives, side salad, and toasted pita bread.

Inspired by the Turkish restaurant near me which serves breakfast including homemade cheese, homemade bread, charcoal-grilled sausage, and a ton of little sides. Been hankerin' for that set but, you know, COVID.

Would savor that breakfast, saving the olives for last so I could nibble them and enjoy them slowly.

I have to talk about what I made last night.



RATATOUILLE

So first off let me preface anything with me saying I've never had Ratatouille in my life. I cannot speak to how close this treatment hews to an authentic Ratatouille recipe. Anyway, I used this recipe as the general base for my activities. The more I looked it over, I realized what I was reading made Ratatouille sound like nothing less than a vegetable confit. So much olive oil in each step with each ingredient getting a lot of time to steep in the oil. It sounded like it was going to be very soft but delicious.

I wanted to counteract the softness somewhat by giving it something to sit on that was at least firm. I landed on fried polenta cakes because I had a bag of polenta sitting on my counter for the last few days. Then I thought to add goat cheese because I had an opened CostCo tube of goat cheese in my fridge. Then I topped it with some crisped up prosciutto bits because I had some in my fridge from when I forgot to add it to another dish a few days ago.

Everyone? All this random stuff all together made for one of the favorite things I've made in a long long time. Lady Pepper enjoyed that as well, saying, "That was delicious, babe. I housed that." No, she is not someone who often says or should(?) say "housed", but here we are.

RickRogers

Woh, is that a thing I like??


I've never tried ratatouille with goats cheese, but that sounds like a pro move and I would also house it.

I did once try to make the version from the that film and it was very time consuming, not like it was in that film and not worth it really- but still delicious.

Normally I pour some olive oil on the hummus but thought I'd try it with olives on the pita. Should have added a drizzle over the cucumbers and tomato for a nicer photo.

Also: That ratatouille looks both rustic and gourmand at the same time.

How Wonderful!


I only have excellent ideas.


Homemade hummus is so unbelievably good for how easy it is to make. I keep a little bottle of pomegranate molasses around just to finish off hummus with. It's really nice.

Green curry pork happened today and despite being sinfully ugly I'm posting about it in the spirit of

I snagged a boned pork roast for like half off so I diced and braised it, seared the veggies and then reduced the coconut milk and cooked off the curry paste. yeah, paste, because I'm lazy, and it's impossible to find Thai chili here.

Incredibly not photogenic but hot dog is it tasty

e: it's also cauli rice

No, I like my hat, thanks.


Had a bunch of dried mushrooms, so I spent all afternoon grinding them into powder. I don't like the texture of whole rehydrated mushrooms but the powder is very useful to mix in with all kinds of things. One batch was just straight shiitake, and another batch was a blend of 7 or 8 different kinds. It gets everywhere though while it's grinding, and it's very fine. Probably going to sprout spores in my sinuses.

Even if you put nice garnishes on top? The garnish is what makes the leftovers edible imo.

i need to start planning and making lunches to freeze like curry and burritos and poo poo. maybe make a proper bolognese and make a lasagna

I don't like to eat the same thing every day but if I make like 5 servings of a bunch of different things I can stagger it, but that means I have to freeze them

Veggie stock plus liquid aminos works p good too, also if you have just decent soy sauce and veg broth that works. Basically you're just wanting to hit somewhat umami + watery.

Also the tiniest drop of liquid smoke will ratchet up the flavor like a roasted bone will.

My dad also does a thing where he'll cook the vegetables down and then squeeze every last drop of liquor off of them. Then he boils the liquor with aromatics and adds his umami stuff (he uses kombu and soy paste sometimes, sometimes he uses kombu and fish sauce, sometimes it's all over the place) and repeats until it's intense. Then he uses that for a soup base.
