U decide to have a different Ethnic Meal each night for a week. Which 7 Ethnic dishes do U choose?
Would you prepare them all at home, some of them or go out for these dinners?
Your questions are so original. But I may be dull here in my idea of what ethnic food encompasses. Nevertheless. . .
1) My aunt was from El Salvador and every time I saw her, she made arroz con pollo for me because I loved the way she made it. Not sure I could duplicate it, but I'd sure try. My mouth waters just remembering.
2) There's this pasta dish I had in Rome. And I remember how to get to the restaurant from the hotel because I was only there a week and ate there so many times for that dish, but I can't remember the name of the dish! So, I guess I'd have to eat out for that one. Way out. LOL
3) Thai food such as chicken fried rice. I can do that at home ( if I don't burn it. )
4) Would you consider gyros ethnic? Mmmm
5) Latkes made at home.
6) Some kind of Caribbean dish such as jerk chicken.
7) And maybe a pierogi.
But I don't know. Hard to say. I'm a lot more adventurous when it comes to food than my husband. But I am 109% certain you are even more adventurous than I am. No desire for escargot, for one thing! Or anything involving raw meat or fish. Well, fish is not my thing in general.
Shan..I'd give U much credit if U attempted 2 make these goodies at home! I "used 2" love 2 cook but as w/ so many other things, I don't find much joy in it any longer Eating I can really get into! Especially when it's served 2 me by someone else!
Ha! It's delicious cooked by someone else. I do enjoy cooking sometimes. But you know I burn half the things I attempt! Most of the things I listed I could probably do at home and it taste good. But Tia's chicken and rice can't be made the same.
I'll answer your second question first: I'd probably prepare them all at home, because I'm on a limited budget, and I'm vegan, so getting suitable meals from seven different ethnic restaurants in my area would be a challenge. Fortunately, I love to cook.
On to the meals:
Pizza. I make my own at home, with veggie sausage, spinach, artichokes, onions, black olives, and garlic, with a little veggie mozzarella on top. SO good. I'm not sure if that's entirely Italian, but if I'm having a week-long food fest, it has to have some pizza in it.
Veggie stir fry. I have one planned for tonight: green beans, carrots, onions, baked tofu, and maybe a little kale, over brown rice, with some teriyaki glaze.
Tacos. I make lentil walnut taco filling, and wrap it in warm corn tortillas, with guacamole, lettuce and tomatoes.
Hummus with pita and raw veggies. I almost always have a fresh batch in the fridge, anyway, because it makes a great "I can't be bothered to cook" meal.
Moroccan lentils and veggies, in a tomato base sauce, sweetened with raisins. I usually make a batch of sweet potato biscuits to go with them, which isn't remotely Moroccan.
Burgers. I'm hooked on Boca Burgers right now, on cibatta rolls, with a little Just Mayo, tomato, raw spinach, and barbecue sauce.
Curry. Sweet potatoes, carrots, peas, and onions, in a spicy coconut milk sauce, over rice.
Of course, if I actually cooked all these dishes, I'd have enough food to last me for a month!
WOW & YUM! UR quite the exotic chef!! Everything U mentioned has me drooling! I wouldn't mind being UR neighbor! Oh, let me "help U" with all those leftovers!!....Great Menu, Lisa.
I don't know about exotic. Being vegan taught me to explore how many cultures prepare vegetables, because let's face it: salad every night just isn't gonna cut it. And yeah, you can help me with leftovers any time. Half Italian. Can't cook small!
I'm in a double whammy dilemma~~half Italian & raised 4 sons~all Athletes. My normal dinner table looked like a Buffet Table! FOOD-from one end of my kitchen to the other!
Lemon Pepper Chicken from a Tamal chef
Char kway teow in a Penang food hall
Chili con carne
Lamb cous cous in Essouria, Morocco
Confit de canard in Gascony
English fish and chips from the corner chippy
Paella in a chiringuito in Andalusia, Spain
John...Fabulous!! I'll be over on Moroccan night! Oh, Yes! Very tempting choices on UR menu. I suspect U are a chef! Thanks for sharing UR ideas. I'd love 4 U to also share UR food with me! LOL
Not a chef (though I have been) just a bored of cooking foodie!
In all honesty....3 of your selections are a complete mystery to me! Can U briefly describe the dish from Spain?
1. Our polish pierogi
2. Simple italian pasta like carbonara
3. From Thailand - soup Tom - kha - chicken coconut soup
4. Greek salad with fresh veggies and feta cheese
5. Hungary beef goulash with spicy paprika
7. French tart with apples or other fruits (cherry, plums, berries) for dessert
greetings from Poland!
