Kitchen Mashup

Hmm….carrots and celery sticks from Wing Stop,  Coconut Milk, Kale:Rice:edamame mix from costco, tomatoes from farmers market run.

Eat the carrot sticks while cooking the celery in coconut milk and chicken broth.  Add the tomatoes cook, then blend.  Put in fridge while trying to figure out what to do next.

AHA…..find frozen Kale:Rice:edamame mix in freezer, put celery mix in pan, add the kale mix and boyo…. SOUP.  But How did it get spicy?????  I didn’t add any spices, why is it hot?  Doesn’t show any spices on the costco mix but there must be some.  I can eat it, but I put a little sour cream on to lower the heat.

 

so this lady goes to a Thai Restaurant.

and gets the Tom Yum Soup and it is to spicy so she asks the waitress for some coconut milk to cool it down…yes, it is me….I had no idea it would be that freaking spicy…

I ate as much as I could, then brought it home.  I bought some extra tofu, napa cabbage, spinach and mushrooms plus COCOnut milk to bring down the heat volume.  Now I have about 4 more bowls left 🙂

When life brings you something too spicy, cool it on down!

Spicy Black Bean Kitchen Mash Part Duex

If you remember from a few posts back…I was making some black beans and I found some Chile De Arbol in my cupboard that I bought for some reason, so I thought, lets make these with a little kick, now I had a bunch of beans, (or so I thought) 4 coups dry probably, so I put about 8 of the dried chilis in it.

So, since I already had  some carrots and celery that were going to go bad cooked and the quinoa, but I couldn’t find anymore corn, and I was out of broth, I added some milk and a can of Roasted Diced Tomatoes I found in the panty.  After it was heated up I added some cheese and again Pretty darn tasty, and it had a decent kick, but I could eat it!

Now I just have to figure out what to do with the other 4(down from 6) cups of beans that are to spicy to eat on their own!

I think I will try refrying them and see what happens 🙂

KItchen mix-up mash-up

so it is SO much cheaper to buy dry beans and make them at home, it may take a while but they basically cook themselves, once you get them started.

OMG, such a fail, it is Hot, HOt, HOT!!!  Now I have a huge amount of freaking spicy beans!

The good thing is I had some carrots and celery that were going to go bad, so I had cut and cooked them the day before and I had some quinoa that I had cooked up with veggie broth instead of water.

I put some beans & juice in the pot (used the lazy cooks method for beans) added some carrots and celery and the quinoa.  It was still a Leetle spicy so I added a can of cream corn I had in the panty for a while and that cooled it down pretty good.  To top it off and lower the heat some more I topped with cheese.

Pretty darn tasty, and it had a decent kick, but I could eat it!

Now I just have to figure out what to do with the other 6 cups of beans that are to spicy to eat on their own!
