Sloppy Joes From Around the World

by in Recipes, October 14th, 2011

A crowd-pleasing sandwich that is as quick to make as it is easy on the wallet, the sloppy joe is a go-to favorite among kids and grownups alike. This weekend, ditch the Manwich and add some global flair to this comfort food classic. Just a few ethnic spices and creative preparations are all you’ll need to turn this predictable supper into an eat-with-your-hands meal to remember. Don’t forget the napkins.

Aarti Sequeira’s Bombay Sloppy Joes recipe from Food Network Magazine uses lean ground turkey instead of traditional beef and features a light ginger-laced tomato sauce. Before spooning the meat onto the bun, Aarti adds crunchy pistachio nuts and chewy raisins for extra texture in this hearty dish.

Recipes With Color: Teal

balsamic glazed acorn squash
October’s Color of the Month is a jewel of fall, signaling changing leaves and cozy family dinners. HGTV’s color team picked teal as the stunning winner, which designers and readers alike consider “intense,” “rich,” “elegant” and “transfixing.” On FN Dish, we are sharing a darker green hue of teal in a feast for your eyes and appetite.

The deep, dramatic green shade of teal makes me think of fall produce like the strong sleek rind of acorn squash. When you cut into it and cook up the vegetable’s hearty meat, you get another rich autumn color: burnt orange. Both fall colors pop in this recipe for Balsamic Glazed Acorn Squash featured in Food Network Magazine.

ham and spinach spuds
Green, leafy vegetables are abundant at local farmers’ markets this month, but none are more in season than Popeye’s favorite snack, spinach. Make a power-packed meal rich in iron and vitamins A and C with these crisp, dark-green leaves. The perfect fill-in for any dish, stuff tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms and more to utilize this veggie’s slightly bitter taste without overwhelming the other ingredients.

Make Bobby’s Portobello Mushrooms Stuffed With Sausage, Spinach and Smoked Mozzarella as an appetizer, or even a meal. Plump sausage and spinach are a dynamic combo when you toss in plum tomatoes, onion, basil and parsley. Brush the mushroom caps with oil, salt and pepper to bring out the earthy flavor.

Pumpkins: Not Just for Carving Anymore

by in In Season, Recipes, October 11th, 2011

What’s October without pumpkins, right? As fun as it is to pick these bright orange mounds straight from the patch and carve them into jack-o’-lanterns, it is even more exciting to cook with them. Their texture is similar to that of a butternut squash and, when roasted, they are incredibly soft and sweet. Check out our fresh pumpkin-packed menu below for creative and traditional ways to approach this classic fall feature.

Food Network Magazine puts a spin on traditional toasted Pumpkin Seeds (pictured above). Add chipotle chili powder and cumin for barbecue-flavored flair, cinnamon and sugar for a sweet variety and various ethnic spices for Indian, Spanish and Italian flavors. These healthy seeds are perfect sprinkled atop salads or eaten as a quick midday snack.
