Recipe Challenge With Coral Levang
I love a recipe challenge. First of all I get kind of tired of the one person meals I throw
together in my usual rush. So it's fun to stop and think.
Here is part of what CoralLevang has listed from her food stores at:
Several cans of beans--red kidney, pinto, great northern, black
Rice--brown, white, and jasmine
Pasta--gemelli, fusilli, penne, Filipino pancit canton noodles
Grains--quinoa and barley
Beans & legumes--black lentils and small red beans
Canned tomatoes, tomato puree
I would make a casserole, either vegetarian, or perhaps adding some ground beef. It
would be layered.
I would choose a rice or grain, perhaps two. An alternate could be pasta.
I would choose either a bean or perhaps the black lentils. They would look good next to
a layer of white shredded cheese, or white rice.
I think of colors in a layered dish. It looks good for a moment after being served!
I would cook the grain/rice,/pasta, the beans/lentils and then use a glass Pyrex dish,
the large rectangular one. So I'm making 8-10 servings.
I would layer the foods with or without sauted ground beef - maybe with sliced
mushrooms? Orange or white colored shredded cheese could be layered, or just put on
I would serve this casserole on a cold winter evening with a green salad. And red or
white wine depending on the meat/cheese used in it.
Now I'm getting hungry!
If I ever make this - it will be called Coral's Casserole.
