Visit Taste Budding, the new Lake Isle Press blog at www.lakeislepress.com or follow the link in our profile. Lake Isle Creative Director Dara O’Brien explores adventures in cooking from the unique perspective of a reformed finicky eater:

“I grew up in a meat and potatoes household. Except I wouldn’t eat potatoes. I wouldn’t eat veggies or fish, either. Or basically anything but elbow macaroni with butter and a little tomato sauce, grape jelly sandwiches on white bread with the crusts cut off, chicken, and red meat (well-done). Chocolate milk only, no plain. I was also very partial to Hostess Twinkies.”

She’s come a long way. In today’s post, she discovers fonio and cooks Jollof Fonio, following a recipe from “The Fonio Cookbook” by @ChefPierreThiam.

A great tabbouleh is all about the brightness of the parsley, the pops of juicy tomato and crunchy cucumber, all tossed with lemon juice and olive oil. Here’s Mayada Anjari’s family recipe, from her book #TheBreadAndSaltBetweenUs. Photograph by Liz Clayman.

TABBOULEH
SERVES 6 TO 8

INGREDIENTS
1⁄2 cup coarse bulgur
2 medium tomatoes, very finely chopped
1 cucumber, skin on, cut into small cubes
1⁄2 head green lettuce, very finely chopped (about 2 cups)
3 small bunches parsley, leaves and tender stems, finely chopped (about 41⁄2 cups)
Juice of 2 lemons�
1⁄3 cup olive oil�
1 teaspoon salt�
Pinch of cayenne pepper

PREPARATION
1. Place the bulgur in a large bowl and add enough hot water to cover. Let soak for at least ten to fifteen minutes, until the bulgur is fluffy and has absorbed all the water. If it hasn’t, carefully drain off the excess.
2. Add the tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce, and parsley. Gently toss to combine.
3. In a small bowl, stir together the lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and cayenne. Pour over the tabbouleh and toss to combine. Serve immediately.

Spinach topped with toasted walnuts and mixed with a slightly spicy homemade curry dressing makes this easy recipe a keeper. The touch of honey adds a subtle warmth and comforting taste. Here’s the recipe, from Flavors First by Chef Vikas Khanna (@vikaskhannagroup). Photograph by Vikas Khanna.

Spinach and Walnut Salad with Curry Dressing
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons cumin seeds
One 2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
1 teaspoon Madras curry powder
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon honey
4 ounces fresh baby spinach, washed and dried
10 cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup toasted walnuts
Salt to taste

In a small pan, heat the oil over medium heat; add the cumin seeds and cook, stirring for a minute. Add the ginger, curry powder, lemon, and honey and cook until fragrant, about 2minutes. Leave to cool for 10 minutes. In a large mixing bowl combine the spinach, tomatoes, walnuts, and the curry dressing.

Serves 6

Healthy options are more important than ever. Fonio is gluten-free, low on the glycemic index, and high in fiber. Easy to cook, with a mild, nutty taste, fonio is a pantry staple that’s also a nutrition powerhouse. Add fonio to a frittata, or substitute it for rice, quinoa, or another grain in your favorite recipes. Find more ideas in #TheFonioCookbook by @Chef Pierre Thiam. Photo by Adam Bartos

Mother’s Day Brunch, Harlem Style
Here’s a tribute to her Mother by the late Sandra Lawrence: “If you took the A train to Sugar Hill, you were sure to get what the Diva of Soul Food, my mother, Doll, had been cooking since early morning. While she swept and dusted the house, those pots simmered away for hours, filling the air with the aromas that gave you a sense of security—you knew just how much love she put into that meal.” Sandra dedicated her cookbook, Harlem Really Cooks to Doll, the inspiration for her book and “the best cook ever.”

Share the love; try Sandra’s “Doula Feast” for your Mother’s Day Brunch. The centerpiece is a curried chicken salad with apples and mango chutney, served with Asparagus Vinaigrette and Doll’s Pickled Beets. Follow the link in our profile for the recipes.

Acquacotta may mean “cooked water,” but this classic Italian soup is full of flavor—not to mention a great way to use up stale bread. When broken with a spoon, the poached egg releases its richness into the broth, while the croutons add body. Check the link in our profile for the recipe.

Milk Street takes inspiration from Pierre Thiam's Chicken Yassa, from Yolélé!

Try chicken yassa, a boldly flavored dish inspired by a recipe from chef and cookbook author Pierre Thiam. Lightly caramelized onions deliver savory-sweet notes, lime zest adds fruitiness and lime juice gives the braising liquid bracing tartness. You can make it fast or slow in your Instant Pot or try the Dutch oven version of the recipe here: https://bit.ly/3eqPGfO.

Going to Miami in our minds via a cubano sandwich; recipe from THE LATIN ROAD HOME by @ChefJoseGarces. Jose’s advice: “To approximate the cubano at home, follow the recipe to make the absolute key ingredient: the marinated, moist, and deeply flavorful roast pork. (Note: plan for several hours’ marinating time; you’ll end up with enough pork for a second round of sandwiches or the main component of another meal.) For the next-best thing to the real deal pan cubano, get some good crisp-crusted bakery rolls with a light, airy texture. Pick up some best-quality domestic ham, along with Dijon mustard, Swiss cheese, and dill pickles, and you will have yourself some amazing sandwiches. Photograph by Jason Varney.

¼ cup whole black peppercorns
1 head garlic, separated into cloves and peeled
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

PREPARATION
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and process until it forms a thick, wet paste.

Cooking with fresh ingredients instead of packaged to cut back on added sugar? Try cooking with fonio. It’s a nutrition powerhouse that comes in lower on the glycemic scale than most grains. #TheFonioCookbook has options for every meal of the day, including Mango and Fonio Muffins, Crispy Fonio Crepes, and Beef and Fonio Meatballs with Sweet Potato Stew. Yum! Photo by Adam Bartos.

Margarita de Chile Verde
Spicy Margarita

Spice up your virtual happy hour. This take on a traditional margarita with jalapeño is not only delicious but simply stunning to behold. From The Latin Road Home by @ChefJoseGarces. Photograph by Jason Varney.

Serves 8

INGREDIENTS
1 1/2 cups chile-infused tequila blanco
2/3 cup (5 oz) agave nectar
1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 10 limes)
3/4 cup Cointreau or other orange liqueur
Ice

To Serve: Kosher salt, for rims of glasses, lime wedges, jalapeño chile.

PREPARATION
Pour the tequila, agave nectar, lime juice, and orange liqueur over ice in a large pitcher and stir vigorously.

To salt the rims of the margarita glasses, pour about a quarter-inch of the salt into a saucer. Cut a little notch in the flesh of one of the lime wedges and draw it along the rim of the glass until the edge is uniformly moistened, making a nice clean line on the outside of the glass only. Hold the glass by the bottom and gently tip the outer edge into the salt, rolling to coat evenly. Tap or shake gently to remove any loose grains. Repeat with the remaining glasses.

Fill each salted glass with fresh ice, pour in the margarita mixture, garnish with a jalapeño slice and a lime wedge, and serve.

To make your own chile-infused tequila: put one slice jalapeño chile in a bottle of tequila blanco and let it sit for several hours, periodically checking the level of spiciness. Let the tequila get a touch more fiery than you’d typically prefer, as the liqueur and agave nectar will blunt the heat just a bitt.
