Home Cooking Dish of the Month (June 2014) Nominations

Time is certainly flying by…
So here we are, ready to nominate June's Home Cooking Dish of the Month.

May's dish is galette, and there are some beauties posted here:

Now it's time to take a break from making galettes and think about what you'd like to make in June. You can take a look at all the prior Dish of the Month threads here:
And you are welcome to contribute to these threads at any time.

What do you want to cook in June? Remember that a dish is loosely defined as an ingredient and a method of preparation.

Nominations will be open until May 26th at 10pm Pacific time (1 am on May 27th Eastern time, and 5 am May 27 GMT). Please nominate your dish using ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. (If you discuss the dish elsewhere in the thread, please type it in lower case. This makes it easier to count the dishes in caps, without counting extra nominations for one person.)

You may nominate more than one dish. And if someone else nominates a dish that you wish to support, just reply and type the name of the dish in all caps. The dishes with the most nominations will move on to the voting round, where each person only gets one vote.

If you haven't joined us before, feel free to jump in!

    Not sure what the technical definition is exactly. But June brings a juicy abundance, and it's a great snack or light lunch on a hot day :)

      1. re: LindaWhit

        Ditto. Really, any ASPARAGUS prep (salads, steamed or roasted or grilled with sauce or without) would be a-ok with me. Doesn't get more seasonal than that.

        1. re: linguafood

          Except won't it be mostly over by then? Depends on the region I guess but I don't think the local stuff here has much longer.

          1. re: GretchenS

            Ah, good point. Here in Germany (where I currently am), the season is over June 24, which would cover most of the month.

            But I don't know what it's like in the various US regions.

            1. re: linguafood

              It will be good here in SoCal for another month or so.

              I agree with ASPARAGUS, but think it should be any preparation.

              1. re: nothingswrong

                OK folks, looks like I need to reiterate the guidelines...

                While asparagus, any preparation, sounds like a great idea for a thread on the Home Cooking board for this time of year, this is the DISH of the month. To make it a dish, we need some idea, however vague, of an ingredient and a method of preparation. Asparagus is an ingredient. It could be a soup, a galette, a salad, a stir fry, a pickle, etc. etc.

                We can move ahead with with sauced asparagus, for those of you that are putting that dish forward. Those that are just saying asparagus need to declare a dish or join up with the sauce people.

          1. KUGEL-
            in Jewish cooking- a kind of sweet or savory pudding of noodles or potatoes

            1. What about PAELLA in June? Could be made in doors and out, with seafood or chicken or sausages or all of the above. It is a one pot dish that is great for entertaining and will make nice leftovers for the next day. I love making it in the summer and contemplating buying a paella pan.

                  PICKLED SEASONAL VEGETABLES. I think this could be quite fun!

                  1. re: L.Nightshade

                    Have you seen the pickle recipes in the current Fine Cooking? They really piqued my interest!

                    1. re: L.Nightshade

                      PICKLED SEASONAL VEGETABLES I've been wanting to try my hand at this, so I'm game! I also just got a book about pickling veggies, so I should be able to find something to try!

                      1. re: SarahCW

                        what is the title of the cookbook?
