What's your food kick lately ?

Lately I have been into making Pan Con Tomate . I have had it five days in a row . I also have to add burrata cheese . I would love to make this . I have been getting the dry farmed early girl tomatoes from the FM . I also saw them in whole foods .
I grate the tomatoes whole with a box grater into a bowl .
Add olive oil
salt
Small amount of pureed garlic . I use my knife to crush it along with a little salt moving the flat side of the blade back and forth .
Spread mixture on grilled bread .
The tomatoes are so sweet right now. I’m loving it .
Any food kicks lately ?

Syrups, pestos, and infusions. Trying to use the summer herbs while they’re still here.

Not intentionally, but I bought more tofu recently, so I guess you can say tofu (in my ingredient list) is my kick?

Italian sausage soup and chili. Weird I know, it’s been 90 here all summer and I have been wanting spicy soups. Burning up the garden tomatoes.

I’m not throwing anything. I moved into a new abode with a no BBQ/grilling rule.

Truffle oil. My new favorite steakhouse in NYC makes a truffle mac n cheese that I am flat out addicted to. I try to avoid carbs like macaroni, but I can’t help myself when I’m around this stuff, it’s my kryptonite.

I have toyed with it at home, I have also made some truffle oil popcorn. I’m trying to find different things to pair with this very distinctive flavor…suggestions are welcome!!!

Chopped fresh hatch chili (new Mexico No. 9) from the garden.

They are so amazing straight off the vine that I started a whole thread on them

A very distinctive and complex favor.

I thought that Hatch chilies had to be grown in the Hatch Valley – is a Hatch chili now a variety of chili, regardless of where it’s grown?

We’ve been making Maangchi recipes a lot the last couple months. http://www.maangchi.com/

Pan con tomate is absolutely obsession worthy. I make an even more simple version, as a friend from barcelona taught me- well toasted bread, cut in half tomato rubbed onto it vigorously so the seeds and innards end up on the toast. Dribble with olive oil and flakey salt.
A thread on CH a while back used the same treatment on those thick homemade style corn tortillas that have a rough surface texture, and that combo is amazing too.

The past few months i have been making smacked cucumbers constantly, lots of savory yogurt bowls, Zahav’s hummus, and a watermelon salad with olives, cilantro and arugala.

With the change of seasons this will soon change to roasted veggies and lots of stews and soups but i try to postpone that as long as possible!

I have used that method also T . With this one I will spread a small amount on the toasted bread and press it with the spoon and then dribble a small amount on top . What I like about this method is I take the leftover1/4 cup and drink it . it is so good and sweet with those tomatoes , best ever :yum: Did you get a chance to hit up any FM’s while visiting the Monterey Bay ? It’s busting at the seams with produce .

Did you know that in advance? It’s spirit crushing. My condolences on the loss you’ve suffered. It damn well might have killed me.
