You bought your first Le Creuset pot...
... it's 90 degrees outside, and you're trying to eat healthy and keep carbs to a minimum for health reasons.
What is the first thing you'd cook to break in your new pot?
Simmer up some chick peas for a big batch of hummus and the others can play their part in a grain salad. Warm cooking, cool eating!
Otherwise, braise up a chuck roast with some beef stock, rubbed with italian herbs for Italian beef sandwiches. The extras freeze amazingly well too .
And enjoy the new Le Creuset, it will be a joy for years to come.
poach a chicken with lemon and herbs for a cold chicken salad
vichyssoise (too carby?)
curried creamy cauliflower soup-good hot or cold
Pork Country ribs and a mess o greens..Just brown the seasoned ribs in a bit of oil and throw in as many greens(collards, mustard, dandelion etc) as you can fit. No liquid is needed as the greens release a lot of moisture. Simmer for a couple of hours.
