Today's recipes:
  • Time now to go make couscous salsa to take to the solstice party tonight. Adapted from Mark Miller's Great Salsa Cookbook.
  • Toast 3/4 tsp each ground cayenne & coriander, & 1-1/2 tsp. cumin. Add to 1 c couscous & 1 c boiling water. Let sit covered 5 minutes.
  • Add roasted, peeled & diced: tomato, 2 bell peppers & 1 to 2 poblano peppers. Add salt, pepper, & chopped cilantro to taste. Serve w/ chips.
  • I like Tostitos multigrain tortilla chips, both with this & just to snack on.
  • Time to go roast . . .
  • Salsa made. Realized looking at blog that I do lots of couscous. This next week, I'll have to do easy polenta.
