Spicy Chicken 1

For nearly three years I’ve lived under the delusion that my significant other disliked couscous. Apparently that is not the case, so to celebrate I made some with spicy chicken.

The spice blend aimed to be something that could be associated with North Africa. I don’t remember everything I put in there off the top of my head, but paprika, cumin, cardamom and cinnamon were major players.

Spicy chicken stew with carrots and broccoli, couscous and cold sauce of a curry-flavored persuasion. Only one photo today, as I didn’t find the dish blogworthy until I started fiddling with plating.

Broccoli Soup

Made soup, but forgot to take pictures until it was done and I photographed a showy plating just to have something for the blog. Here’s how it’s done.

 

Sweat onions, garlic, sliced carrot, diced potatoes and cut up broccoli in a suitable pot.

Add water, stock cube, white peppercorns and for example french herbs.

Simmer until everything’s soft.

Mix with the assistance of a handblender.

Add cream and a dash of vinegar. Adjust seasoning.

Toss in some broccoli bits and bring to a boil, then serve with whatever floats your boat.

Served in what looks like a very designed bowl but is actually a soap dish, with a sprinkle of black pepper and some feta-like cheese.
