Food that's NSFW...

...'fo reals! No, there aren't any naked dancing women, and there's no p0rn involved. This one is NSFW because of the spice levels. Let's just say that when I made it, I was glad I was home alone. Now, if you don't have any trouble with spiciness, then go right ahead and fill up your lunch bag with this. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Sweet Bean Paste

I worked on an experimental food this weekend that came out pretty good.

Sweet Bean Paste
1 cup dry black beans and 1 cup dry pinto beans
Soak overnight.
In the morning, drain and rise.
Boil with a little salt for a long time. (30 min?)
Drain, rinse.
Put into food processor with:
2 cups tomato broth
1 small can tomato paste
1 tbsp honey
Push the button and watch it moosh.
Add 4-5 cloves of grated garlic (use microplane)

It's about the consistency of hummus and purple. Tasty!
Also, gluten-free.
I put it in some burritos, and it gets the job done.

How did yours come out? Please share in the comments!

mmm... Hot Pockets!

Last night I had an opportunity to dine at Le Petit Auberge. I had an avocado appetizer, which amounted to half a sliced avocado on a plate with creamy vinaigrette dressing and roasted red pepper strips. The entree was poached salmon with a yummy brown sauce, roasted potatoes, and green beans - just plain and steamed, no seasonings. There was enough sauce left over from the fish to smear the veggies in. It was quite good. Dessert was peach melba. Heavy on the ice cream, light on the peach; I was a wee bit disappointed. I'd still recommend to anyone who happens to find themselves in the area of 28th and Lexington.

In the spirit of last night's meal, I present to you something yummy and easy-peasy:
