title: "Cauliflower Cacciatore"
image: cauliflower-cacciatore.jpg
tags: mains, veg
ingredients:
- 1 head of cauliflower
- 1lb mini sweet peppers
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- 5oz mild goat cheese (we like Chavrie brand)
- 5oz sour cream
- jar of cacciatore sauce (we like Cookwell & Company)
- 1 cup red wine
- croutons (we make our own)
- fresh cilantro
directions:
- Start by pickling half your peppers. Chop all your peppers, put half in a jar, cover with vinegar (and whatever you like, spices, garlic, hot sauce). We're only looking for a quick pickle here, so do this, shake it up, and get back to the rest of the recipe.
- Next, start roasting the cauliflower, around 350°, to your desired level of doneness. Keep it firm and you can call it a "cauliflower steak", cook it down hard and it'll eat more like a mash. If you're making your own croutons, add some bread cubes tossed in oil/salt/pepper around the roasting pan.
- While the cauliflower roasts, stir the goat cheese and sour cream together (and whatever you like, spices, garlic, hot sauce). If it's too thick, thin it out with a bit of olive oil.
- Cook the onion and remaining peppers (non-pickled!) in a high heat pan with some olive oil. When softened, add your jar of cacciatore sauce and a cup of red wine. Stir and bring to a simmer, let it go until it gets a bit thicker.
- To assemble, plate a large dollop of our cream cheese spread, place half a cauliflower head on top, cover with a scoop of cacciatore sauce, top with croutons, cilantro, and our pickled peppers.

We first discovered this dish at [Arlo Grey](https://www.thelinehotel.com/austin/food-drink/) in Downtown Austin, and since, it's taken on a life of its own. We've cooked it a number of times and it's slowly evolved (mainly to become easier to cook, if you can believe it). It's one of our favorite vegetarian dishes and can easily swing vegan (just replace the dairy with something like hummus).
It's vegetables that eat like a full-on meat lasagna. Dang.

tags: creme, brulee, dessert
ingredients:
- 6 egg yolks
- 2 cups whipping cream
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- boiling water
- 8 teaspoons granulated sugar
directions:
- Heat oven to 350°F. In 13x9-inch pan, place 4 (6-oz) ceramic ramekins. In
small bowl, slightly beat egg yolks with wire whisk. In large bowl, stir
whipping cream, 1/3 cup granulated sugar and the vanilla until well mixed.
Add egg yolks; beat with wire whisk until evenly colored and well blended.
Pour cream mixture evenly into ramekins.
- Carefully place pan with ramekins in oven. Pour enough boiling water into
pan, being careful not to splash water into ramekins, until water covers
two-thirds of the height of the ramekins
- Bake 30 to 40 minutes or until top is light golden brown and sides are set
(centers will be jiggly)
- Using tongs or grasping tops of ramekins with pot holder, carefully transfer
ramekins to cooling rack. Cool to room temperature, about 2 hours. Cover
tightly with plastic wrap; refrigerate until chilled, at least 4 hours but no
longer than 48 hours
- Uncover ramekins; gently blot any liquid from tops of custards with paper
towel. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons granulated sugar over each chilled custard.
Holding kitchen torch 3 to 4 inches from custard, caramelize sugar on each
custard by heating with torch about 2 minutes, moving flame continuously over
sugar in circular motion, until sugar is melted and light golden brown. (To
caramelize sugar in the broiler, see Broiler Directions below.) Serve
immediately, or refrigerate up to 8 hours before serving

ingredients:
- 1 lb carrot sticks (or baby carrots)
- 2 oranges (or any citrus)
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 package phyllo dough
- 1/2 cup honey
- sesame seeds to top
- vegetable oil
directions:
- Start by parboiling your carrots in 2 cups of water (means party boil).
- Zest and juice the oranges.
- When the carrots are jussst soft, drain the water. Add the butter, the zest, and the orange juice. Simmer until thick and declious. It's fine (and good) if the carrots are still a bit undercooked (we're going to bake them next).
- Unroll the phyllo dough and cut it into three equal sections. With a brush, oil the top of each sheet.
- Roll a carrot with a single section of phyllow dough, place on a baking sheet. Repeat and repeat and repeat.
- When a full baking sheet is ready, brush the top of each roll with a little oil. Don't worry about placing them too far about, they won't raise much (at all).
- Bake according to your phyllo dough box.
- With 5 minutes left, brush the top of each roll with honey, then sprinkle with sesame seeds.

This is another recipe we saw on Jamie Oliver's TV show, and we can't stop making it. It's perfect for parties, and pairs well with any rich dip (we've been doing greek yogurt topped with hot sauce and tahini). We've also rolled things other than carrots, changed the flavors, made news dips— go wild!

This is my go-to marinade for everything from steaks to shrimp to fajitas to pork. Seriously, if I'm cooking or grilling meat, there's a good chance this is what it's soaking in. It's perfect for "street meat" aka cart or truck, like tacos and wraps and kebabs and skewers and everything in between. Start with this base, add spice or herb as desired.

We saw this on Jamie Oliver's TV show and made it that night. He calls for **cavolo nero** as the greens, but dinosaur kale or spinach or any dark leafy green will do. The bigger the green, the easier it is to fish out of the boiling water, so keep that in mind.
Start to finish this whole recipe takes about 10 minutes, but it's pretty rapid fire once you get stated. Have plates and an appetite standing by.

A quick go-to dinner. Can be made with almost any meat. I often used ground. Works perfect for lettuce wraps. Try replacing the onion with thinly sliced fennel.

Pork is called "the other white meat", but this sous vide technique is so dang good I'm gonna graduate it up to "THE white meat".

A lot of places are doing dang good brussels lately, but none can touch [Salty Sow](http://saltysow.com/). They serve them fried, topped with pecorino and golden raisins. Yes, please.
We started trying to emulate it, but it's such a versatile dish, you can make it however you want. Consider this a loose guide.

I love me some okra, but prep is usually enough to avoid making it. This simple dish requires only a single cut per pod and a dash of seasoning- that's it.

We found these during Happy Hour at Chiso's Grill in Bee Cave, Tx. We've since tweaked the recipe a bit. This recipe is just a starting point, add/remove anything you want (like more hot sauce if you're into that). Sometimes I order the [peppers on Amazon](https://amzn.to/2MGUnam). My favorite hot sauces are Franks Red Hot, Jardine's Texas Champagne, and of course, [Yellowbird](https://amzn.to/2Pw4LAv).
Fun fact: Peppedew Peppers are basically a new thing. They are the brand name of piquante peppers, which were discovered in South Africe in just 1993. Hat tip to [Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peppadew) for the schooling.

<p>Hey folks!</p>
<p>My name's Clark and you've just stumbled into <strong>Chowdown</strong>, a plain text recipe database for hackers. Over the years, I've tried dozens of recipe apps and services in an attempt to eat better and get more organized. With each app came a new format and <em>recipe lock-in</em>, neither of which got me excited.</p>
<p><strong>Chowdown</strong> is my attempt at fixing recipe app burnout, by moving my recipes out of closed services and into plain text. For example, here's <a href="https://raw.githubusercontent.com/clarklab/chowdown/gh-pages/_recipes/broccoli-cheese-soup.md">a recipe in plain text</a> that I've been working on for a while. It's a broccoli beer cheese soup inspired by Gourmand's, one of my favorite spots in Austin. Crazy delicious.</p>
<p><a href="http://chowdown.io/recipes/broccoli-cheese-soup.html">Here's that same recipe processed with <strong>Chowdown</strong>.</a> It's a simple layout with a photo, ingredient list, and directions.</p>
<p>The magic comes behind-the-scenes, with <a href="http://schema.org/Recipe">recipe microdata via schema.org</a>. This process adds special tags around each bit of content, which is what let's other apps (list coming soon) read your recipes. Data portability!</p>
<p><strong>Chowdown</strong> is definitely a work in progress. Active development is taking place. I'm new to Jekyll. Things might break. The recipes, however, are here to stay.</p>
<p>Go cook something rad,</p>
<p>Clark<br/><a href="http://twitter.com/clarklab">@clarklab</a></p>
