TND – Dinner January 29th = Messy, but Yummy

March 8, 2013

Dinner - Janaury 29

Indonesian Chicken
Spiced Basmati Rice
Spiced Broccoli with Coconut
Fresh Pineapple Wedges

Indonesian Chicken
The only downside to this dish is the clean up.  Even lined with a double layer of foil, the burned on glaze took serious soaking and elbow grease to remove.

Spiced Basmati Rice

Recipe previously given:  Misanthropic in Massachusetts

Spiced Broccoli with Coconut
I was going to make broccoli rabe or broccolini, but apparently there’s some broccoli related agriculture crisis going on in California?  Upshot was broccoli rabe and broccolini were both about $4/bunch.  The broccoli was probably more expensive than usual too, but not quite that expensive.

This is basically a riff on Spiced Coconut Spinach (recipe previously given: There Are Worse Hobbies)

I sauted red onions with some chopped fresno chilis until they were caramelized.  I added piles of grated garlic and ginger and cooked them with the caramelized onions for about 30 seconds.  I cooked the broccoli separately until it was just barely tender, and then tossed it with toasted coconut and the onions until everything was well mixed.
