Menu ideas for the Caribbean
- Kitty Nov 18, 2004 06:51 AM
I live on one of the ABC's and all foods are imported. I need to cook in more (and eat out less) but need some basic recipes that are healthy, lower carb and can be cooked on one burner or a crock pot.
Chicken and basic veggies are readily available as is fish and meats.
I do a lot of soups with chicken, okra and veggies, al ot of pastas and stir fries. I need some creative juices going and would love some Chowhound. Thanks.
Stir fry one chicken breast, cubed
Add some sugar snap peas or diced asparagus and stir fry until al dente
Add 2 or 3 teaspoons of orange juice and 1/2 small garlic clove, crushed
splash with balsamic vinegar
Add more butter
Salt to taste
Serve with a side of salad greens with orange segments, diced green onion, a bit of feta cheese, and candied pecans - creamy balsamic dressing
Dessert: sliced oranges sprinkled with shreds of coconut and ginger cookies
