Will you name a favorite food or a dish (a food and word game) that we can all share?

Asked by Kardamom (23780 points ) 2 months ago

Here’s how to play this game. The first person lists a food or dish, then the next person lists a food or dish that starts with the last letter of the previous dish and so on and so forth.

Some letters are much harder than others, like Q, X and Z, so if you want, you can use the letter that’s next to last if you get one of those (although you’ll probably get more lurve if you’re able to pull off a Q, X, or a Z food item).

I’d love it if you could also post a recipe or a picture of the food item, but it’s not required.

SPINACH AND FETA FETTUCINE

What you need:

1 large onion
olive oil
several cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
1 large red capsicum
1–2 fresh or frozen chillis
mushrooms
a large bag of spinach, washed
star anise, crushed
whole cloves, crushed
approx 100g feta cheese, cubed
salt
freshly ground black pepper

What you need to do:
Slice the onion and fry in the olive oil. After several minutes, add the sliced garlic and finely chopped chillis. Continue cooking for a while. Chop 1’” off the end of each bunch of spinach and add these ends to the onions along with the sliced red capsicum, cloves and star anise. When capsicum is almost cooked, add the sliced mushrooms and cook for a further few minutes until mushrooms start to soften. Pile the whole spinach leaves, with their stalks, into the pan and cover. Cook over low heat until spinach is thoroughly wilted. Season with salt and pepper and add the feta cheese. Stir and cook for a minute or two. Serve on fettucine.

@Coloma I wonder what vegetarian items tastes the closest to escargot, since I have never eaten it and never will.

Coloma's avatar

@Kardamom I had it years ago , you’re not missing a thing and I would never have it again either. Gag! No amount f garlic butter can disguise snail meat. haha

Just enjoyed an amazing home made quiche up here at the ranch. Fresh eggs, cream, and everything from the garden. Added Japanese eggplant, yellow crooknecks, red onions, chives and one had goat cheese and the other cheddar. Oh man…superb!

ROGAN JOSH

2” piece of rootginger, finely chopped
8 cloves garlic
4 tb plus 275ml water
10 tb olive oil
900g lamb meat (shoulder is good), cut into 1” cubes
10 whole cardamom pods
2 bay leaves
6 whole cloves
10 whole peppercorns
1” cinnamon stick
200g onions, finely chopped
1 tsp ground coriander seed
2 tsp ground cumin seed
4 tsp paprika
¼ – 1 tsp cayenne pepper – adjust to suit
1 ¼ tsp salt
6 tb plain yogurt
¼ tsp garam masala
freshly ground black pepper

Put ginger, garlic and the 4 tb water into a blender and blend to a smooth paste.
Heat oil in a wide, heavy pot over medium heat. Brown lamb in several batches and set aside. Put cardamom, bay leaves, cloves, peppercorns and cinnamon into the same hot oil. Stir once and wait until the cloves swell and bay leaves begin to take on colour. This takes just a few seconds. Add the onions. Stir and fry 5 minutes or until they turn a med-brown colour. Add the ginger and garlic paste and stir for 30 seconds. Add coriander, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper and salt and stir fry for a further 30 seconds. Add browned lamb and any accumulated juices. Stir 30 seconds. Now add yogurt 1 tb at a time, stirring between each addition. When all added, stir and fry another 3–4 mins.
Add the 275ml water. Bring to a boil, scraping in all the browned spices from the sides and bottom of pot. Cover and turn heat to low and simmer for about an hour or until lamb is tender. Give the meat a good stir every 10 minutes or so and when tender, remove lid, and boil away some of the liquid. You should end up with tender meat in a thick, reddish-brown sauce. Finally, before serving, sprinkle on the garam masala and black pepper and mix in.

Babaganoush

Kardamom's avatar

@Mimishu1995 Do you actually like the taste of bees being roasted? Part of this particular game is to list a favorite food or dish.

Would you like to go again?

Mimishu1995's avatar

@Kardamom Enjoy the food :P There is a plate of roasted bees there. Not technically bees, but their “children”

Kardamom's avatar

@Mimishu1995 I’ll ask again. Is this one of YOUR favorite foods, or is this just for shock value. I’ve seen Anthony Bourdain’s show about weird and unusual foods and most of the stuff he eats looks horrific. This particular thread is to give the readers some yummy ideas, not just to show people that almost anything can be eaten.

Do you want to go again?

Mimishu1995's avatar

@Kardamom Oh right. Where are we now?

Coloma's avatar

A one bowl dinner here. Fresh sliced garden tomatos, a few garlic olives, a few marinated mushrooms topped with 3 deviled egg halves and some sun dried tomato Triscuits. It was quite festive and only took 45 seconds to prepare. Served with a Shock top ale. lol

Kardamom's avatar

@Mimishu1995 I think we’re at H, regarding babaganoush.

I think @Coloma forgot that we are also playing a word game. My friend, you need to list a dish that starts with the last letter of the last dish that was (correctly) listed. That was babaganoush by @ibstubro so the letter is H.

Reminder to all: you have to list a dish that you actually like, that also starts with the last letter of the previous person’s answer. Example: Apple Pie = Eggs Florentine.

Coloma's avatar

@Kardamom No, didn’t forget, just babbled off topic while having my dinner and ale. lol

Yams, yams, yams.

@Coloma Here it is. I have a bag of Yaki nori at home. I think it’s just a kind of seaweed.

FYI, “nori” means “seaweed” in Japanese. Not sure what “yaki” means though

@Mimishu1995 I think I will give you an extra 10 points for giving both a food that starts with the correct letter, and the fact that it is also the name of a country. That doesn’t happen very often : ) Well played, Madam.
