Weekly menu of El Comidista (September 26 to October 2)
With the summer the good tomatoes and the big peach family have left, but it must be recognized that autumn always arrives loaded with ingredients that we have missed. The proposals of this week are ideal for these days that begins to make cool. Get inspired and fill your pantry with sweet potatoes, mushrooms and pumpkins.
MONDAY 26 SEPTEMBER
VIETNAMITES ROLLITOS OF VEGETABLES AND PRAWNS
Do you feel like a walrus with fins every time you try to make a roll? Your life will change with this recipe.
BONIATO TORTILLA WITH COD
The sweet potato is presented as a seasonal alternative, with a point of sweetness and incredibly sweet texture, to the classic potato.
YOGURT IN TWO TEXTURES WITH FIGS AND GINGER
A recipe with haute cuisine techniques, but very easy to prepare at home. If you don't want to be El Celler de Can Roca, you also have the normal option.
TUESDAY 27 SEPTEMBER
SALAD OF TOMATOES AND PLUMS
The grace of this recipe is basically to combine the textures and flavors of different types of tomatoes. Ripe plums finish off the play.
MINIPIZZAS DE HIGOS AL VINO, ROQUEFORT AND NUECES
There is life beyond bread toast. This 'pizzita' combines figs cooked in sherry with vanilla, roquefort and nuts, an ingredient very friendly to cheeses.
SEASONAL FRUIT: GRAPES
Yes, the pepitillas are a nuisance. And yes, sometimes the skin is so hard that you could suck on it. But few fruits are so sweet and fresh.
WEDNESDAY 28 SEPTEMBER
With pasta, with rice, sautéed, in scrambled eggs or in tortillas and now also in pate: in autumn any excuse is worth it to become mushrooms.
RED CHICKEN WITH GRAPE AND GRAPES CURRY
Both curry paste and fish sauce, sugar or lime leaves are easily found in oriental food stores.
MATÓ AND LABNE CASEROS
One is Catalan. The other, from the Middle East. But both dairy products are equally delicious and can be made at home.
THURSDAY 29 SEPTEMBER
Spicy Roasted Cauliflower
Discover, with the help of the oven, that cauliflower is not the blandurria vegetable that your mother served as a child.
PUMPKIN, GORGONZOLA AND DRIED FRUIT LASAÑA
The season has come to put on as the pumpkin bun, the most famous cucurbitaceae of those that are made and undone.
SEASONAL FRUIT: FIGS
We are fed up with brevas, their 'sisters sosillas', so now it's time to give the figs, rich in fiber and that reduce the amount of blood sugar.
FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 30
ROASTED PUMPKIN AND BEET SALAD
Its color, taste and joy of living would make a grilled t-bone pall. They seem bland ingredients, but we show you that they are not.
SAUSAGES WITH FIGS AND GRAPES
This dish is prepared in 15 minutes, more or less the same time it takes to defrost or heat any precooked bazofia in the microwave.
Before throwing the pastries that have become dry, why don't you stop wasting and make a delicious cake with her in two kicks?
SATURDAY 1 OCTOBER
BONIATO OVEN CHIPS
All are advantages: no suspicious oils, amount of salt controlled and, above all, a delicious taste if the sweet potato in question is good.
LAMB LEG FOR TORPES
It's about time you learn to roast lamb. Get out of ignorance with a recipe for beings without hands or brains.
SUNDAY 2 OCTOBER
PASTA WITH MUSHROOMS, NUTS AND VERMUT
We are in the era of mushrooms, nuts and autumnal cursiladas. We pay tribute to all three things in a 'harristed' pasta.
MARINE SALMON WITH GENEVA
Inspired by a winery in Menorca, the key to the recipe is to marinate the salmon for a short time, only about three hours.
THE DRINK OF THE END
COCKTAIL BLOODY SIMI ISLAND
Did you think tomato juice only got along well with vodka? We give a twist to the Bloody Mary using gin, olives and mustard.
