Baked Zucchini Coins

Posted by Wine & Spice on 8/30/2018 to Veggies!

Who doesn’t adore the bounty towards the end of summer? Zucchini has been plentiful and delicious. I tried something similar to this recipe at a restaurant years ago and thought it would be fun to replicate.

Today I used Louisiana Red Beans & Rice, this is hand blended from onion, garlic, parsley, celery, cumin, cayenne, bay leaf and red pepper flakes. The name is deceiving as you can use this very versatile blend in just about anything! It is a bit smokey with just a hint of heat and is great in anything from beans (check out Instant Pot Baked Beans) to salad dressing.

This is great as an appetizer on warm summer nights! I used a ranch dressing to dip the coins in, but you can use any type of dipping sauce you wish.

An iced cold Blue Moon beer paired really well with this.

Israeli Chopped Salad

Posted by Wine & Spice on 8/13/2018 to Exotic Spices

Mediterranean food always tastes so fresh and healthy! This chopped salad is no exception. Luscious cucumber, tomato, red onion, feta cheese, parsley mixed with Zahtar, lemon juice and olive oil. So delicious. My kiddos adore this. Great for a quick meal on its own or serve with Sumac-Sheet Pan Chicken.

Zahtar is a middle-eastern/mediterranean spice mix that is hand blended from sesame seeds, coriander, sumac, thyme, cumin and black pepper. This is fantastic on chicken, fish, vegetables, bread and dips (mix with Feta cheese and olive oil for a great dip with pita chips).

We enjoyed a cold glass of chablis with this salad.

Greek Lemon Garlic Chicken with Potatoes

Posted by Wine & Spice on 8/10/2018 to Chicken & Poultry

Mediterranean foods are so fantastic, and good for you! What is there not to love about this simple one sheet pan dinner? Chicken thighs, lemon, garlic, olive oil and It’s All Greek to Me. So simple and so flavorful! This is a dish sure to please the entire family.

It’s All Greek to Me is hand blended from Greek oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, sea salt, black pepper, parsley, Korintje cinnamon and ground nutmeg. This blend creates a wonderful gyros sauce or use it for marinating your Mediterranean style chicken gyros or beef, lamb, chicken or pork shish kabobs. Similar to our Mediterranean Dry Rub this blend is outstanding on grilled or baked chicken and fish.

We enjoyed an ice-cold glass of Biblia Chora Ovilos White with this meal.
