I made some risotto a few days ago and have been using the leftovers to make different things. The other night i made a calzone and i used the recipe from my last post for pizza crust as the crust for the calzone.
leftover sundried tomato pizza sauce
carmalized onions and mushrooms
i mixed these together and filled the calzone crust and then baked at 400 degrees for 20min.
Over Christmas break I had my girlfriends over and we decided to make pizzas.
1 Cup warm water
1 packet of yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
mix and let sit until yeast is active (foamy)
then add 1 Tablespoon of olive oil and 3 cups of flour and 1 Tablespoon salt
mix into a ball and then let sit for 20min-1hr letting it rise
2 Tablespoons water
3 Tablespoons oilve oil
1 Cup oil packed sundried toamtoes
then add whatever toppings you like and bake at 400 degrees for 15-20min until crust is brown and crunchy
Saturday afternoon we had friends over for lunch. We had some leftover falafel and pita. We decided to make pizza from it.
we brushed the pita with oilve oil and salt and pepper and toasted them in the oven.
while this was cooking we made hummus and sauted up mushrooms, onions, and peppers and pan fried the falafel.
once the pita was toasted we spread the hummus on the pita and topped it with a variety of toppings from green onions to roasted red peppers, the sauted mix of vegetables, the falafel and tomatoes.
One afternoon decided that we wanted to make some fried rice. We decided to have lentil burgers with our fried rice.
First we made a cup of brown rice in our rice cooker. While the rice was cooking I heated up the wok and fried up some mushrooms and green onions in a little bit of oil. Once rice is finished I added the rice. To give the rice an Indian flavour to go with the lentil burger I added 2 tablespoons of Garam Masala and then a tablespoon of tamari to balance the flavours.
