Stackable Dinner? I'm having fun with this, looking for new!!
So here's a couple pics lately of my stackable cuisine - I'm loving this. but looking for new ideas. I'm going to do one with sauteed mushrooms, maybe polenta or quinoa (although polenta would be prettier) and another layer.
Any ideas out there, pics too.
I'm obviously not awake this morning: the pics below are Shephard's Pie (ala stack) and Shrimp Stack Salad (shrimp, quacamole and mango salsa)
Wow - how fun is that? I have a dish to make for a party on Saturday. I'm going to run with this idea!
these look great!
we used to do a layered dish with fried corn tortillas, cumin-seasoned cream cheese with sauteed onions, jalapenos, tomatoes - covered in pepper jack of course! i'm having a coronary while drooling just thinking of it!
I was looking through my Jacques Pepin book and was struck by his simple, beautiful presentation for broccoli and cauliflower florets. Both were cooked, (and buttered, if memory serves), then layered carefully into a deep round bowl, so that the stem ends are all pointed toward the interior. It was tightly packed, cooled, then re-warmed in a water bath before being inverted on a serving platter: a striking dome of green and white layers, which would be even more attractive if made including broccoflower or the golden and purple cauliflower available in some produce markets.
