I've become addicted to Chicken Enchiladas Verdes. Usually the very
simple sauce calls for tomatillos, but now I see that green tomatoes can
be substituted. I can hardly wait for fall.
Secondly, I found Zigeuner-Soße: A Paprika Tomato Sauce for Meat. It
uses an obscene amount of multicolored bell beppers, but it is delicious.
Beppers!?? Peppers, I must be thinking of my new hero Beppe Grillo.
Thirdly, late in life, I've found Ajvar, pronounced Eye-var, this dish
is made of roasted Peppers and Eggplant. Ripe red mild or medium-hot
peppers are most often used, although green peppers, unripe tomatoes,
and even string beans can be combined into ajvar.
Serve as an appetizer to spread on thick slices of country-style white
bread or flat pita bread with chunks of feta cheese, or use as a side
dish to accompany grilled or roasted meats.
Think I'll go flog the cold soil, and see if I can't speed things up in
the garden a bit.
