    Mandy Yin’s recipe for anchovy fried rice | Food

    This is a variation of the perennial favourite, fried rice. It is a take on nasi goreng kampung (village fried rice), a dish I have often had at Malay hawker stalls where ikan bilis (dried anchovies) are a key component. Eating this always takes me back to the Malay uncle pumping out nasi goreng like there’s no tomorrow at the hawker centre at Batu Ferringhi, Penang. To make the recipe vegetarian, simply leave out the ikan bilis and add salt, to taste, at the end of the cooking process. Serves 1oil 3 tbsponion 50g, finely choppeddried

    A pot roast recipe that resembles mom’s home cooking

    It’s pot roast season. Who’s with us? Pot roast and gravy has been one of the favorite comfort food recipes of Nicole Johnson of OrWhateverYouDo.com for as long as she can remember.  “Nothing beats homemade gravy, so pile up those mashed potatoes and get scooping,” Johnson says. She notes that she makes this recipe on an outdoor pellet grill (pellet smoker), but it can easily be made in the oven following the same directions.  “My favorite part about this dish is that it is almost all hands-off, but tastes like you spent all day over the stove,” Johnson adds. THIS

    Vegan Sloppy Joes Recipe

    Chef notes I love this recipe because it’s so flavorful and hearty. This is a home run for people who are worried about walking away from the table unsatisfied. It’s great for large groups and serves up well, year-round. Technique tip: Try to evenly chop the onion and bell pepper in the food processor so they cook in the same amount of time.

    Wild Green Cakes Recipe

    Chef notes Wild plants are high-quality ingredients sought after by chefs, but also available to anyone who takes the time to get outside and learn about them. Many different species of plants can be used, and no two batches of these cakes I’ve ever made have been exactly the same. My favorite part of this recipe is how the greens continue cooking on the inside of the cake, almost as if they’re cooked under pressure, retaining a bright green color, with a tender bite that eats almost like meat. The cakes are meant to be a mild side dish —
