Weekend Herb Blogging #273 Round Up

The amazing food event that bring together bloggers around the world to share their unique delicacies, Weekend Herb Blogging, continues with Round up of 273th week as follows.


Featured Ingredient: Basmati Rice
Soma(Texas USA) of eCurry ,Vegetable Pulao.
Basmati Rice is a variety of long grain rice grown in mainly in the Indian Subcontinent; it is fragrant and delicate. The name means the fragrant or the perfumed one in Sanskrit.Basmati Rice is simple, and a quick recipe. Adding a few vegetables and spices is a good way to jazz up the plain old steamed rice at certain times and during special meal times.


Featured Ingredient:Rutabaga
Rachel of The Crispy Cook ,Rutabaga Souffle.
Rutabaga is a member of the Brassica family, closely related to the whiter, smaller turnip, but with a mellower flavor. Once stripped of its skin, the flesh is a pale golden color that deepens into a yellowy-orange when cooked.It is a great source of fiber and Vitamins A and C.Simple to bake and flavorful, Rutabaga Souffle is far tastier than plain mashed rutabaga.


Featured Ingredient: Lamb
Mimi(London,UK) of foodie and the chef , Lamb Provencal
This Lamb roast deserves a toast: a slow-roasted loin of lamb, infused with garlic & Provençal herbs and served with pearl onion gravy.There is definitely something about lamb which makes one’s taste buds go wobbly, particularly if it’s slowly roasted to succulent perfection. As with other dishes for a Sunday lunch affair, simplicity and choice of ingredients are the key here. This recipe calls for top quality cut of tender loin from your local butcher.


Featured Ingredient: Salmon
Janet(Toronto,Canada) of Taste Space ,Blueberry Salmon Teriyaki Spinach Salad.A delectable salad with simple ingredients, with authentic Asian ingredients. Baby spinach is the base, and it is topped with sliced bell pepper for some crunch, blueberries for tart-sweetness and green onions for a bit of zip. The salmon teriyaki is plated on top and then balsamic vinegar is drizzled over top.


Featured Ingredient: Bell Peppers
Marija of Palachinka ,mouthwatering and vibrant Chicken Bellpeppers


Featured Ingredient: Blood Plums
Haalo(Australia) of Cook Almost Anything ,Upside down Blood Plum Cake. Haalo uses intensely colored and juicy flesh, Blood Plums.The plums are used raw and during the cooking soften and release all that lovely juice into the caramel base creating a rather decadent sauce to serve with the cake.


Featured Ingredient : Kaffir Lime leaves
Nilam(Indonesia) of Growin Kitchen , Opor Ayam.Opor uses loads of ingredients that refined and poached along with coconut milk and, of course, the chicken. Among the ingredients are kaffir lime (Cytrus hystrix DC.) leaves that give a distinctive tangy trait to the dish.


Featured Ingredient: Teff Flour
Winnie(New Paltz, NY) from Healthy Green Kitchen ,Blueberry Muffins with Teff Flour. These nutritious muffins are made with teff flour,teff is a tiny seed that is native to the Ethiopian highlands: it has been cultivated there for thousands of years. Nutritionally-speaking, teff is high in protein, calcium and iron: it is also gluten-free.


Featured Ingredient:Pumpkins
Cinzia(Garda Lake, Italy) of Cindystar, Pumpkin Gnocchi. The pumpkins used add more appeal and nutrition to the Classic potato gnocchi.


Featured Ingredient: Meyer Lemons
Joanne from Eats Well With Others , Meyer Lemon Bars .Sweet and sour ,these lemon bar will sure get your taste buds tickling.
