Delicious Black Eyed Pea Salad

Looking for a fun summer side salad for your next family meal? Why not try this delicious black-eyed pea salad recipe. A fresh summer salad with lots of flavor that you can serve as a perfect appetizer for a meal with your friends and family.

To make your black-eyed peas more flavorful, you may also add garlic cloves, diced celery, and bay leaf. This will add a flavor contrast that will be perfect with the light tomato vinaigrette.

If you can't find marinated octopus, you can use calamari as a substitute. You can two cups of white wine as an additional flavoring for the salad during the cooking process. It will add an rich but zingy flavor to the dish.

Grains, dried beans, peas, and lentils are rich sources of nutrients, but they are difficult to digest unless properly prepared, as they contain enzyme inhibitors that keep them from germinating under dry conditions. This is the reason why you need to soak the beans overnight so that the body can easily digest the black eyed peas.

1 lb black eyed peas
1 lb marinated octopus
4 cups chicken stock
4 cups water
16 oz cherry tomatoes
4 oz green bell peppers
4 oz carrots
½ cup olive oil
1 oz shallot
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp fresh oregano

Delectable Creamy Risotto

This creamy risotto is an excellent savory side dish that you can pair with braised oxtail recipes. This is a rice and cheese recipe with a taste similar to classic risotto, but with a bit more style.

Arborio rice is short-grain rice used primarily in the preparation of risotto. Arborio rice has more starch present since it undergoes less milling than medium grain rice. So, Arborio rice must be cooked slowly with a hot liquid to release its creamy starch content without becoming mushy.

Manchego cheese is made from sheep's milk. It has Spanish origins and is traditionally served with quince paste. It has a nutty, yet salty taste. If you can't find Manchego cheese at your local grocers, you can replace it with the Asiago, Muenster Cheese, or English Cheddar.

If your local grocers doesn't have arborio rice, you can use sushi rice as a substitute. To substitute sushi in this risotto, make sure you don't rinse it first, as keeping the starch in the dish will yield a greater result.

5 tbsp butter
1 (¼ cup) arborio
4 cups chicken broth
4 cups water
2 eggs
1 cup Manchego
4 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp bread crumbs
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Citrusy Fish Escabeche Recipe

This delicious escabeche recipe is a perfect quick and easy weeknight meal. This extraordinary fish recipe is an excellent light meal for dinner.

Escabeche is a dish of Spanish origin in which seared meat or fish is marinated in an acidic marinade. Fish escabeche is similar to ceviche. However, the fish is partially cook.

It works great in quick fish tacos. Just take a basic cheese taco and add a bit of the fish, peppers, and onions. Normally you wouldn't use melted cheddar in a fish taco, but because the cheese cuts through the acidity, it works. You can eat the escabeche a few hours after you prepare it, but it will be better if you let it marinate for half a day. The fish will firm up and have a better texture.

You can add half of the habanero to add a little heat to this citrusy escabeche.

3/4 cup olive oil
1 oz red bell pepper
1 oz green bell pepper
1 oz yellow bell pepper
1 oz onion
2 oz carrots
1/2 cup cider vinegar
3/4 cup grapefruit juice
1 tbsp soy sauce
