FIESTA FRIDAY #33
I hope my co-hosts, Andrea @Cooking with a Wallflower and Sylvia @Superfoodista, like this recipe. I know these two are into healthy food. The kale crust and all the colorful veggie toppings should satisfy the health quota of the day, yes?
Now, with the help of my FF32 co-host, Hilda @Along The Grapevine, I’m presenting FF32 features:
Fig and Grape Pie from Sue @Birgerbird. In Hilda’s words, “Sue escorted us through her local market on a fascinating grape tasting tour where I suddenly found myself craving grapes I didn’t even know existed. She then took us step by step through the creation of an elegant and seasonal Fig and Grape Pie. The roasted fruit on a flaky pastry is a perfect dish to celebrate the end of the summer season. I shall take those beautiful images with me to market and hope to find suitable ingredients and try to replicate this.”
You know what’s better than a fig pie? A fig and grape pie, of course! Just like I can never resist figs, I can’t seem to stay away from grapes, either. Two favorite fruits in a single pie! I love ya, Sue! In an enraged kind of way, ‘coz now you’ve made me crave this pie, and I know there’s no bakery in the world who makes and sells it. So, I will have to make it myself. Thanks a lot, Sue! 🙂
Dark Chocolate Oat and Seed Snacks from Nourished Roots. My mom is a guest at our house and I asked her to pick a feature and this is her pick. Why am I not surprised? Let’s just say she’s a health addict. The quinoa, hemp and chia listed in the ingredients are enough to seal the selection for her. I happen to stock my pantry with these super foods regularly, so you know what Mom and I will be making, right? Thank you so much, Nourished Roots, for sharing a wonderful, healthy recipe with us at the fiesta!
Crispy Tofu and Pineapple Salsa in Hibiscus and Rosehip Tea from Petra @Food Eat Love. In Hilda’s words, “Petra amazed me with her contribution of a light dish, as pretty to look at as it is great to eat. [It] has more flavours and textures than most meals where I come from. Also beautifully presented were her Beetroot Salad with Whipped Feta Dressing and a Roasted Squash Salad – a truly winning selection of tantalizing treats!”
I don’t know what to say, Petra! I’ve said it before that I think you can run a gourmet restaurant if you wanted to. I don’t know anybody who can come up with such flavor combinations unless they’re professionally trained. You know, like Iron Chefs. What a recipe!
Extra Delicious Fried Modaks from Swayam @Là Petit Chef. I love it when I learn something new. I had never heard of Modaks before, Swayam! I actually thought they were some kind of wontons when I first saw your post. Let’s just say I wasn’t disappointed when I found out I was wrong. Why, these modaks look and sound tantalizing with their filling of jaggery and coconut. Plus, they look so adorable! I wouldn’t mind tucking into a few of these. Do they travel well? I’m not at all suggesting that you ship some to me, Swayam. Just asking. Really. Promise. Swear. 🙂
