Dinner Tonight: Indian Burrito with Spinach, Chickpeas, and Tomato

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger 1 comment

My wife has demanded politely suggested I create something like this, but I valiantly resisted for four months. Though the beloved oversized Mexican dish (or is it Californian?) shares certain similarities with the kati roll, it's not exactly the same thing. And if I couldn't track down the authentic paratha used in the original, I thought, then it wasn't worth making. Then I got over it. More

Dinner Tonight: Summer Sun Gold Tomato Pasta with Bread Crumbs

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger 1 comment

It's excruciating to wait for tomatoes to come into season. So when I found ripe little Sun Golds looking beautiful at the market, I wanted to celebrate. I dreamt of a dish that would highlight the unique character of the little tomatoes, putting them at the center of the plate. More

Pork Belly BLT with Cherry Tomatoes

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 2 comments

Let's say you want a BLT, except it's not quite peak tomato season and you only have a slab of raw pork belly, not bacon. That's the terrible dilemma I faced this week. But was that going to stop me? Of course not. I just had to get creative. More

Pan-Seared Flank Steak with Shiitake Mushrooms and Pumpkin Seed Sauce

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

Whenever I'm looking for a side dish to pair with steak, my mind tends to gravitate toward mushrooms, since the two are such a fantastic pair. The only problem is a visual one: both are brown, making for a monochromatic dish. Steakhouses solve this problem by adding a completely unnecessary sprig of parsley; I decided to go all in and add as much green as possible, in the form of a lime-heavy pumpkin seed pesto. More

Pan-Fried Noodles with Shrimp, Snap Pea, and Carrot

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

Why go to the trouble of boiling noodles, draining them in a colander, rinsing them under cold water, draining them again, and then stir-frying them? Sure, sometimes I love making things needlessly difficult for myself, but this is not one of those cases. Instead, I was after a crunchy noodle base, which would maintain its integrity even after toppings and a strong sauce are poured on top. More

Dinner Tonight: Tilapia with Toasted Almonds and Green Olives

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

I always cringe before starting a recipe where I have to make sure something adheres to fish. Instead, I took the easy way out and sprinkled on almonds at the end. That way I could focus on making sure they were properly toasted, and not on whether they were sticking to the fish or burning in the pan. More

Broiled Tofu with Miso Glaze and Asparagus

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 4 comments

Try as I might, I will never tire of in-season asparagus. But I do try to switch things up to make sure things stay interesting in the kitchen. One of my favorite variations is to pair the green stalks with white miso. More

Peas are warmed and blended into a colorful purée seasoned with mint, topped with savory lamb sausage, and served alongside some warm pita. More

Dinner Tonight: Lamb Sausage with Pea Purée and Pea Sprouts

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger 1 comment

It's that point in the year when I'm starving for fresh produce. Right now, that means peas. While I have a serious affection for mushy peas (I'll spare the reasoning), I looked instead for other ways of highlighting the vegetable. Here, I've made them into a colorful purée seasoned with mint and topped with savory lamb sausage, served alongside some warm pita. More

Dinner Tonight: Cheese Curd, Asparagus, and Prosciutto Pasta Salad

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger 1 comment

Cheese curds are tricky little guys. While they might be all squeaky and salty when fresh, they can easily turn to rubber if too cold or melt into goo when warmed. What to do? More

Red Curry with Shrimp, Zucchini, and Carrot

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 9 comments

When it comes to convenient pantry staples to have on hand for a quick meal, a can of good Thai curry paste ranks up there with bacon and kimchi. Grab a can of coconut milk and whatever happens to be in the fridge, and twenty minutes later you have a stunningly spicy dinner waiting for you. More

Dinner Tonight: Bacon and Kimchi Steamed Buns with Carrot and Cucumber Slaw

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger 2 comments

The cucumber and carrot salad provides a crisp and acidic counterpoint to the kimchi and bacon, and it's all housed in a steamy and super soft bun, which is "airy" in a way few foodstuffs can ever hope to be. More

This complex vegetarian curry has a multilayered profile and a genuine kick from the cumin seeds, cardamom, cinnamon, fresh garlic, ginger, onion, paprika and cayenne pepper. More

Dinner Tonight: Pork Chops with Shaved Brussels Sprouts and Apple Salad

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

It all began after devouring a crisp and tart Brussels sprout and apple salad at Sylvain in New Orleans. While great on its own (as was everything at the charming restaurant), I couldn't help but wonder how the salad would work as a refreshing counterpoint to a hunk of meat, particularly a thick, bone-in pork chop.

Pork Chops with Shaved Brussels Sprouts and Apple Salad

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 6 comments

Though the story of this dish is rather long, its appeal is immediate and clear. Shaved Brussels sprouts and apples combine to make a tart and acidic salad, which plays off a big meaty pork chop. It's obviously more a fall dish, but it's easy to admire all year long. More
