EuroBike 2017 & Whole Grain Cereal with Fresh Fruit & Kefir Picture Recipe

Like I mentioned in the last post, I learned a lot about European cycling culture at Eurobike 2017 in Friedrichshafen, Germany last week and also had some terrifically flavorful foods.

Savory Steel Cut Oats with Beans, Avocado & Bell Pepper Picture Book Recipe

Savory Steel Cut Oats with Beans, Avocado & Bell Pepper

Last post showed how to cook steel cut oats as quickly and easily on the stove. As mentioned in that post, steel cut oats take longer to cook, about 25 minutes, than rolled oats because steel cut oats are not precooked or preprocessed before being cut to smaller pieces by steel blades. That minimal processing means that steel cut oats have a more chewy texture and nutty flavor, stick with you longer because they take longer to digest, and are much more versatile than rolled oats, meaning they can be used in a wide variety of both sweet and savory recipes.

Microwave Beans Alfredo Fusion I’m a big fusion fan! Here’s a fully flavorful, richly nutritious, and very easy to make recipe that came to mind while ripping it on a gorgeously colorful fall bike ride the other day that combines – or fuses – the Italian creamy Parmesan cheese flavor of a modified (less fat, lower calorie) Alfredo sauce with the richly flavorful and nutritious Latin American staples of kidney beans, cilantro, avocado, and tomato.

Here’s a picture of what you need to make a bowl of microwave cooked beans Alfredo fusion.

Pasta with Sausage and Fresh Fig Sauce

Pasta with sausage and fresh fig sauce: great stuff! Aside from its warmly robust sweet and savory flavor, the sausage and fig sauce can be made in the same time it takes just to cook pasta.

Now, what if fresh figs aren’t on the market – or you don’t like them? No problem. Just substitute those figs with any other available fruits: apples, pears, peaches, or plums – or whatever suits your taste.

Here’s what you need for ingredients.

Pasta with Fresh Chicken Sausage Sauce – All in Pictures

Pasta with Fresh Chicken Sausage SauceLast post showed how to cook pasta to “al dente” (or, “firm to the teeth”) perfection. Here’s a great way to enjoy that pasta – with fresh chicken sausage sauce.

As the word “fresh” implies, the key to making this recipe turn out full-on flavorfully is using fresh garlic, fresh tomatoes, and a good handful of fresh basil – and, you bet, fresh sausage, if you can find it, sure makes a difference.

Here are the ingredients needed to make this recipe.
