BRUSSELS SPROUTS RISOTTO

BRUSSELS SPROUTS RISOTTO

This may seems a bid odd but I had a dozen Brussels sprouts, and about 6 large mushrooms and not a whole lot else in our land galley and we were leaving for a week on our little adventure. Plus with all the excitement of preparing and packing last week I had neither the interest nor energy to put a lot of thought and effort into supper. Risotto is always a great go-to meal. If you keep some chicken broth…

PUMPKIN ARANCINI

PUMPKIN ARANCINI

Another inspiration from RecipeTin Eats The second best thing about delicious risotto is having leftovers… and as Francois said last night when I made my really yummy Pumpkin Risotto ‘You should make this more often’. Luckily I had just enough left to make tonight’s even more yummy Pumpkin Arancini. Usually arancini are little risotto balls coated with bread crumbs and fried. To keep the galley mess to a minimum and to use less oil I make my arancini into little…

PUMPKIN RISOTTO

PUMPKIN RISOTTO

One of my favourite sources of delicious and easy recipes is from Nagi of RecipeTin Eats When she posted her recipe for baked Pumpkin Risotto a while ago I thought ‘Oh yum!’ So when I found myself with some pumpkin purée I thought I would make my own boat friendly tiny galley version…   Well, let me tell you it was so good that Captain Francois went back for seconds (a portion much larger than his first) Luckily I doubled…

LEMON BASIL TROUT

LEMON BASIL TROUT

Once again a co-worker of Captain Francois donated some of his season’s catch to the ‘Worthy Sailor’ cause… rainbow trout filets… …a very quick and easy dinner on our boat. This time I marinated the filets in a mixture of basil, fresh lemon juice and garlic, pan fried them and served with some Pressure Cooked rice and steamed broccoli. I found that if I wrap the broccoli in foil and place in the cooker pot with the rice it will…

STORMS and TASTY LEMON, BASIL & PASTIS INFUSED SHRIMP RISOTTO

Now that I have perfected my basic Risotto on a Boat and since I have some shrimp in the cooler and a beautiful bouquet of basil begging to be used… (a little boat alliteration) …and to give the barbecue(er) a break. …and since this rainy thunder stormy day has cooled things off I can afford to heat up the cabin a bit… LEMON, BASIL, & PASTIS INFUSED SHRIMP RISOTTO (refer back to my Risotto on a Boat for quatities and…

RISOTTO ON A BOAT

RISOTTO ON A BOAT

I used to think Risotto, my all time favourite meal, was this delicious mysterious dish that could be enjoyed only in the best of Italian restaurants. Then one day while channel surfing I came upon a cooking show where (get this) a French chef was teaching the Italian host how to cook Risotto. He sautéd minced onion and garlic in some olive oil, added some rice, deglazed with white wine, gradually stirred in heated chicken broth, added some freshly grated…

APRICOT BROWN RICE PUDDING

APRICOT BROWN RICE PUDDING

This past summer I used to bring quantites of cooked brown rice and other cooked grains onboard. I kept them refrigerated in 2-cup sized food bags for a quick easy addition to supper after a long day of sailing. Someday it may be useful to have a Pressure Cooker onboard for longer trips (oh the evergrowing list of galley ‘necessities’) This is another example of the benefits of cook-once-eat-twice …a bit of effort the first time – very little for…
