Here we are at the beginning of February and Mardi Gras is coming up – that’s a great reminder to make a dish with a bit of heat and a bit of spice to ward off the winter blues. A dish like this Cajun Fried Rice with Pulled Pork.
Lima & Pea Crostini
While Fava beans have set the standard for many Crostini spreads, here the common (and much cheaper and so much easier to deal with) Lima bean stands in. Combined with garden peas and mellowed with a touch of cream, these bright, fresh Lima & Pea Crostini are somewhat unexpected. The exceptional taste is springy, even in the dead of winter. These Lima & Pea Crostini are a breath of fresh air.
White Bean Dip
White Bean Dip is such a great dip to have in your reprotoire. It’s such a classic and can be made at the drop of a hat. And of course, it’s not only fabulously frugal, it’s one of the healthier dips.
