Monday October 11
The chicken thigh is tender and juicy, and when boneless and sliced, it cooks in a matter of minutes. With four more ingredients to give it flavor and aroma we will get a plate of 10.
LEMON PANNA COTTA
An easy, fresh and Italian dessert that does not even require an oven to prepare.
Tuesday, October 12
Turn on the oven and treat yourself to preparing some stuffed mushrooms without batter or frying, but equally crisp and with a comforting autumn flavor. The aroma they leave throughout the house comes as a gift.
BONIATO, SPINACH AND ARTICHOKE ROTOLO
A simple Italian dish – albeit somewhat elaborate – with which it costs almost the same to cook for four as for 40. It’s called a rótolo, it admits infinite versions and it could be the rolled cousin of lasagna.
SEASONAL FRUIT: PEARS
They are juicy, they are good, they are in season and they can be eaten alone or in combination. There is no fault.
Wednesday October 13
Roasted radishes dovetail nicely with the salty, tangy, and spicy oomph from ingredients like anchovies, lemon, and arugula, respectively. If you have always eaten it raw, you will be surprised by the result of grilling it.
‘DAL’ OF LENTILS AND COCONUT WITH BROCCOLI
A tasty and nutritious dish, halfway between stew and cream. All thanks to the particular texture of legumes without skin and cut in half, known in South Asia as ‘dal’.
TRADITIONAL CATALAN CREAM
No, Catalan cream and custard are not the same. Once this discussion has been solved, it only remains to prepare them at home with this recipe and enjoy its texture and flavor.
Thursday October 14
This simple and comforting soup was Yuri Gagarin’s food in space and started the mutiny of “Battleship Potemkin.” You are lucky to be able to prepare it in your kitchen without further complication.
BAKED MILLETS WITH AUTUMN VEGETABLES
If you remove the scales and cook some clean fillets, the baked mullet on top of a bed of previously roasted seasonal vegetables becomes a snack worthy of the finest days.
SEASONAL FRUIT: KIWI
Kiwi is in season and is one of the fruits with the highest concentration of vitamin C. Ideal for coping with the cold.
Friday October 15
Can you tune a can of cockles into something similar to a ceviche? The answer, a few lines below (just in case you buy lime, avocado, coriander, tomato and a few other things).
Aubergine is a good friend of pickling: with this technique you can incorporate flavors with the help of spices, other vegetables and oil. The key to make it look good? Patience.
KAKI AND POMEGRANATE DESSERT
If you want to feel less guilty, you can substitute the Greek yogurt with low-fat whipped cheese; if not, give it a final hit of whipped cream or fresh cream.
Saturday October 16
A Simple, Quick and Clean Way to Cook Cabbage – A potent dressing is all you need to go from being a nasty veggie to a true delicacy.
SEASONAL FRUIT: APPLES
This fruit is rich in pectins and fiber, as well as being delicious, so take advantage of what the new season brings.
Sunday October 17
The muffin is the juicy cousin of the cupcake, thanks to a composition that includes a greater amount of wet ingredients. Let’s celebrate fall with this version of roasted pumpkin and a cheerful spice mix.
The weekend drink
A wine-based drink that is flavored with spices and fruits, perfect to warm up and take advantage of a wine that has not turned out to be as good as you thought.
