Dukkah Earl Grilled Eggplant Toasts with Topped with Whipped Feta & Dukkah for #BlendsBash

2020 has not been a year full of bright spots for most of us. In fact, I know very few people that aren't just ready for it to be over with. So when The Book Club Cookbook contacted me and asked if I'd like to close the year taking part in their 2020 virtual #BlendsBash I was all in! From September into mid-December I'll be sharing some original recipes made with their wonderful spice blends, al cleverly and punnily named for books, television shows and songs. 

First up for me, some fun and fabulous Dukkah Earl Grilled Eggplant Toasts Topped with Whipped Feta & Dukkah.

A little background: 

Duke of Earl" is a 1962 US number-one song, originally by Gene Chandler. It is the best known of Chandler's songs, and he subsequently dubbed himself "The Duke of Earl". The song was penned by Chandler, Bernice Williams, and Earl Edwards. This song was a 2002 inductee into the Grammy Hall of Fame and is not too hard to learn the words too! ūüėČ

Dukkah is a Egyptian and Middle Eastern condiment made up of a mixture of herbs, nuts (usually hazelnuts) and spices. It is typically used as a dip with bread or vegetables as an appetizer or pupu as we call them here. I had a small kine addiction to Trader Joe's Dukkah Blend a few years ago and then they stopped making it for a while. I tried making my own but I confess, the urge to have someone blend and pound the mixture for me usually wins out. 

When I saw that my friends at The Book Club Cookbook added Dukkah to their Song Blends line-up, cleverly calling it Dukkah Earl, I knew I had to add it to my list of spice blends for the Blends Bash party they are hosting.   

Dukkah Earl contains hazelnuts, sesame, coriander, cumin, black pepper, sumac, sea salt, nigella seeds, Aleppo, spearmint. I wanted to do something fun with it and I had seen a few articles online about eggplant toasts--a lower carb, bread-free toast option and had been wanting to try them. I decided to do a version with whipped dukkah feta and a sprinkling of Dukkah Earl on top for the crunch factor. You could of coarse smear the whipped feta on actual bread or pita bread, but I think the eggplant toasts are fun!

Dukkah Earl Grilled Eggplant Toasts with Whipped Feta & Dukkah
By Deb, Kahakai Kitchen
(Makes 4-6 Toasts)

1 medium-large eggplant, sliced into 3/4-inch slices
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp spice of choice (might I suggest One Flew Over the Couscous Nest by The Book Club Cookbook--it's a blend of
Cumin, coriander smoked sweet paprika, cinnamon and parsley)
a sprinkling of salt and pepper to taste
Whipped Dukkah Feta (see recipe below)
sea salt and black pepper to taste
Dukkah Earl spice blend to garnish

Place the eggplant slices in a strainer and toss with 1/2 tbsp salt. Let drain for 1 hour. (This is a good time to make the whipped feta!) After 1 hour, rinse off the eggplant slices and pat dry with paper towels. 

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper. Brush the slices in olive oil and sprinkle on the spice blend and sea salt and pepper. 

Pace the eggplant slices on the paper lined baking sheet. Roast for around 20-25 minutes or until the eggplant appears soft and slightly browned. Allow to cool slightly before spreading the whipped feta topping on. Top with a sprinkle of Dukkah Earl and enjoy!


Whipped Dukkah Feta
by Deb, Kahakai Kitchen 
 
6 oz feta cheese
3 oz cream cheese
1 Tbsp lemon juice, or to taste
1 tsp Dukkah Earl Seasoning Blend
 
Add crumbled feta to a food processor and pulse until small crumbs remain. Add in cream cheese and puree for 4-5 minutes, scraping down the sides when necessary, until feta is super creamy. Serve as desired.

 
Notes/Results: These were really tasty and really fun to eat! I liked the mix of all of the Middle Eastern spices with the eggplant, feta and lemon juice. The flavor of the dukkah comes through and the crunch of the herb mixture on top is a nice contrast. The one thing I would change is trying to pan fry my eggplant toasts next time. They were soft and delicious but when I think of toast, I want more crisp crunch. Still, I ate them all happily--they were like nice soft bread. My eggplant was not particularly large and so I thought three toasts with the whipped feta was a good amount of breakfast or lunch. They would be really fun for one-bite appetizers if you used a small eggplant too. While there are a few steps to making these, they are very easy to make and I will definitely be making them again. 

Many thanks to The Book Club Cookbook for providing me with this tasty seasoning blend. I received no compensation for taking part in the virtual 2020 #BlendsBash party and my thoughts and experience using the blends are my own.

I'll be sharing more recipes between now and December as will more than 30 other bloggers as part of the 2020 Blends Bash!  You can check out all the bloggers participating in the #BlendsBash here

Here's a sneak peek at the other blends I'll be featuring over the next couple of months in their adorable packaging. These blends are so delicious and fun that they will make wonderful gifts for your foodie friends and fans of the many book, TV and song blends they feature. Check out a list here.

Jamie Oliver's Baked Potato Soup: Giving Me Fall Feelings for Souper (Soup, Salad & Sammie) Sundays

We are channeling fall at I Heart Cooking Clubs even though it's about 82 degrees F. here today. No matter, I can eat potato soup no matter what time of year and it always outs me in a fall frame of mind. 


This Baked Potato Soup is by Jamie Oliver and you can leave it classic with sour cream and chives or gussy it up with bacon and cheese. I went in the middle with sour cream, chopped gives, black pepper and some crumbled soft blue cheese.


Baked Potato Soup
(Makes 4-6 Servings)

3 large baking potatoes
about 3 Tbsp butter
1 sweet onion
1 Parmesan rind, whatever size you have in the fridge, optional
6 cups chicken or veggie stock
sour cream, chives, blue cheese to garnish 
 
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Wash the potatoes and dry well, then prick each one with a fork and wrap in foil. Put on a rack in the middle of the oven and cook for about 1 hour 15 minutes. The exact time depends on the size of your potatoes, but to check, give them a quick squeeze, bearing in mind they’ll be hot: the potato should just give under your fingers. 
Remove from the oven then, when cool enough to handle, cut them into quarters. Leave to cool completely.

Peel and dice the onion. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over a medium-low heat and cook the onion for 10 minutes, or until soft. Cut the potatoes, skin and all, into chunks. Add the potato and Parmesan rind to the pan, season, then cook for 5 minutes. Add stock, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes. 

Remove the rind, then pur√©e the soup until smooth with a stick blender or in a blender. Return to the pan, check the seasoning, and thin with the remaining stock, if you like. Serve garnished with a dollop of sour cream, snipped chives and a pinch of black pepper. Delicious with crumbled Lancashire cheese and crisp, crumbled bacon on the side for the whole baked potato experience.


Notes/Results: Simple and satisfying. I think the tang of the sour cream and blue cheese are what elevate this soup, so I recommend them to garnish and stir into it. I would happily make this soup again. 


This soup gives me Fall Feelings so I am sharing it with IHCC this week.
 

Let's see who is here in the Souper Sundays kitchen this week!

Judy of Gluten Free A-Z Blog is here with a vegan Fall Potato Dill-Vegetable Soup and says, "I have used dill in potato salad before, so I decided to make a potato based soup. I just went with the flow of what I had purchased. I had potatoes, onions, garlic, zucchini, fresh dill and fresh kale- all from the organic farmers at the market!  The only vegetable I added to the soup from my refrigerator was some carrots."

The Book Tour Stops Here: A Review of "Remedios" by Deborah Clearman, Served with Guacamole & Toasted Tortillas

It's been a couple of months since I have done a book tour review so I'm excited to be today's stop on the TLC Book Tour for Remedios, a new novel by Deborah Clearman. Accompanying my review is a recipe for a Guatemalan-style Guacamole, served with Toasted Flour Tortillas inspired by my reading.


Publisher's Blurb:

Fernando Granados is a university professor in financial trouble when a boyhood friend he hasn’t seen in thirty years reenters his life. Memo Galindo, now part of a notorious Mexican cartel, soon persuades Fernando to build a meth lab on his country property, just outside the ancient town of Remedios. Fernando’s strong-willed wife Sandra and their beloved 18-year-old son F√©lix each fall under Memo’s charismatic spell. The cascading family crisis plays out on a larger stage, from its roots in Guatemala’s civil war in the ’80s to corruption in the Guatemalan army and American DEA, in a country where even the forces of nature wreak vengeance.

Paperback: 228 pages

Publisher: New Meridian Arts (July 13, 2020)

My Review: 

I have never watched Breaking Bad, or Narcos or been that interested in television shows, movies or books about people caught up in the drug trade but I wanted to read Remedios because I was on the TLC Book Tour for Deborah Clearman's book of short stories Concepci√≥n and the Baby Brokers (see my review here). Although Remedios is a novel, like Concepci√≥n and the Baby Brokers, it is set in Guatemala and features a gritty look at people caught up in something dangerous. Fernando (Nando) Granados is a university professor with a wife (a previous student) he has never cheated on, children, and several brothers that live with them. Having overspent on a renovating and improving their large home, Nando was in bad enough financial trouble that he looks a large loan from a local loan shark and is getting desperate about how he will pay him back when a friend he hasn't seen in decades shows up. The last time Nando saw Memo Galindo, they were teenagers attending a political meeting that ended with the military shooting it up. Nando and his older brother escape but Memo is left behind and forced to become a soldier to save his life. There are rumors he is part of a dangerous Mexican drug cartel and when Nando offers him a place to stay on some rural family property, Memo soon has him looking the other way while he builds a meth lab there, disguised as a cleaning supply manufacturing business. Nando is desperate to pay off his debt and thinks he can keep himself and his family from getting their hands dirty. Memo has some ulterior motives and long-held grudges with Nando, and soon he is involved with his wife and getting his oldest son involved in the business with some disastrous consequences. 

Remedios is not a light nor happy read but it is a quick and compelling one. I found myself caught up in this story and shaking my head in dismay as the ramifications from bad decisions pile up. I also liked getting another glimpse of Guatemala over the past few decades from Clearman, who divides her time between there and New York. I look forward to her next book.

Food Inspiration:

There was a fair amount of food inspiration for a small book. Mentions included: soup, red wine, oranges, tortillas to wipe up sauce at mo0st every meal, fish, salad, brandy, avocado trees, fresh eggs, oranges, limes, onions, linked sausages, coffee, rice and beans, brandy, whiskey, lemon trees, chile rellenos, chicken and rice, steak, grilled shrimp, tamales, atole, mutton, fruit and Prosecco, sandwiches, candy bars, ice cream, cappuccinos, beans and tortillas, and McDonalds.

For my bookish dish, I looked up easy Guatemalan recipes and when Guatemalan guacamole appeared, I knew that's what I wanted to make. I have been craving guacamole and liked how most of the recipes I pulled up were pretty simple, most just relying on lime juice, oregano and white onion. I used the one from TasteForTravel.com for my starting point, adjusting the lime and salt to my tastes.

Guatemalan Guacamole 
Slightly Adapted from TasteForTravel.com
(Makes about 2-ish Cups)

  • 3 avocados, pits removed
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp dried Mexican oregano
  • juice of 1 lime or more to taste
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt or to taste

Mash avocados in a bowl with a fork until mostly smooth. stir in onion, oregano and lime juice. Taste and add salt to taste.

Notes/Results: I like how simple this guacamole is. Oregano is not an herb I typically put in my guacamole and I liked the addition as it pairs well with the lime and makes the flavor a bit more complex. The tortillas I used were small soft "street taco" style that I toasted over my gas burner and they were tasty but tortilla chips would also perfect.


I'm sharing this post with the Weekend Cooking event  being hosted by Marg at The Adventures of An Intrepid Reader. It's a weekly event that is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share. You can see this week's post here.


Note: A review copy of "Remedios" was provided to me by the author and the publisher via TLC Book Tours. I was not compensated for my review and as always, my thoughts and opinions are my own.

Quick & Easy Chickpea & Pastina Soup with Lemon & Dill for Souper (Soup, Salad & Sammie) Sundays

I needed a quick no-effort soup this weekend and so I tossed together this easy Chickpea & Pasta Soup with Lemon & Dill from my pantry and fridge. 


You could easily add veggies or anything to this soup--like chicken or egg or even cheese but I was wanting a simple vegan soup that would be good for my allergy sniffles.


Chickpea & Pasta Soup with Lemon & Dill
By Deb, Kahakai Kitchen
(Makes 6 Servings)

2 Tbsp olive oil
2 stalks celery, chopped
3 cloves garlic
2 Tbsp dried shallots
1 tsp celery salt
6 cups non-chicken vegan broth mix or broth of choice
1 can chickpeas, drained
1 cup dry pastina or other small pasta of choice
1 Tbsp fresh dill, chopped
juice of 1 lemon, or to taste
salt and black pepper to taste

Heat oil in a large soup pot and add celery and garlic, saut√©ing for 4-5 minutes until celery softens. Add dried shallots and celery salt and cook another minute. Add the broth and chickpeas and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for 15 minutes--until flavors meld and celery is tender. Add the pastina and cook according to package directions. 

Stir in dill and lemon juice, taste for seasoning and add salt and black pepper as needed. Serve and enjoy.

Notes/Results: Quick, easy and it hit the spot like a good vegan chicken noodle soup does. I love lemon and dill as they taste so fresh and light. This will make great lunches for my work week. I would happily make it again. 


Let's see who is here in the Souper Sundays kitchen this week!


Shaheen from Allotment2Kitchen brought Fresh Beans and Tomato Couscous Salad saying, "We had this Cherry Tomato Couscous Salad early on in the week when i time to extract myself away from the computer screen to potter a little longer in the kitchen to make lunch. It was not really much work, as couscous from a jar is effortless.  I am adoring the pop of colours coming from the cherry tomatoes from the garden."

Golden Summer Squash and Corn Soup (with Rice) for Souper (Soup, Salad & Sammies) Sundays

I pinned an article on "30 Soup Recipes Perfect for Summer" from an Eating Well Magazine email recently and the recipe for Golden Summer Squash and Corn Soup caught my eye this weekend. Summer squash and corn are plentiful right now and it sounded good with the lemon juice and feta cheese. 


Eating Well says, "Pureed summer squash makes a delicious base for this summery squash and corn soup. Start your meal with the soup or enjoy it as a light lunch. Fresh thyme and briny feta cheese give it fabulous flavor. For a variation, try the soup with any herb you have on hand or goat cheese in place of feta. Source: EatingWell Magazine, July/August 2009"

I made a couple of small changes to the recipe--using one yellow crook-neck squash and one zucchini and adding an extra cup and a half of broth and a half-cup of rice to the soup. My changes are noted in red below.


Golden Summer Squash and Corn Soup 
Slightly Adapted from EatingWell.com
(Makes 4 Servings)

1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium shallot, chopped
2 medium summer squash (about 1 lb), diced (I used 1 yellow/1 zucchini)
3 tsp chopped thyme or other herbs, divided
(I added 1/2 cup white rice)
1 (14 oz can) low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth (I used 4 cups non-chicken broth)
1/4 tsp salt, or to taste
1 cup fresh corn kernels (from 1 large ear)
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add squash and 1 teaspoon herbs and cook, stirring occasionally, until the squash starts to soften, 3 to 5 minutes.

Add broth and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the squash is soft and mostly translucent, about 5 minutes more. Transfer to a blender and puree until smooth. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids.) Return the soup to the pan and stir in corn. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the corn is tender, 3 to 5 minutes more. Remove from the heat; stir in lemon juice. Serve garnished with the remaining 2 teaspoons herbs and feta.


Notes/Results: I really like this simple soup with its flavors of lemon, thyme, and feta along with the sweet corn and mild squash. It's relatively quick to make and healthy too. I added extra broth and rice to make it a bit more of a meal but it would be good without--or if you want low carb you could use cauliflower rice. In any case it's tasty and satisfying and I would happily make it again.


Let's see who is in the Souper Sundays kitchen this week!

Shaheen from Allotment2Kitchen is here with Cherry Tomato Orzo Pasta Salad. She says, "We finally have some homegrown tomatoes. Here we have yellow Galina Cherry tomatoes and chocolate cherry tomatoes - no red ones yet though, they are coming though. I made this Tomato Orzo Pasta Salad."

Ellie Krieger's Healthier Broccoli-Cheddar Soup for Souper (Soup, Salad & Sammie) Sundays

This week I was craving Broccoli-Cheddar Soup and since I wanted a healthier version without as much cheese and fat so I turned to Ellie Krieger for a healthier version.


Krieger's recipe reduces the amount of cheese and bulks the broccoli and the creamy factor out by adding white beans. Since you blend it all up, you won't know they beans are there and they add more fiber and protein. You can also grate extra cheese if you have any eaters who like to pile it on. ;-)

Broccoli-Cheddar Soup
From EllieKrieger.com
(Makes About 4 Servings)

2 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
1 large head broccoli, florets and tender part of stems, chopped (about 6 cups)
3 cups no-salt-added chicken or vegetable broth
1 cup canned, no-salt-added Great Northern or cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup low-fat (1 percent) milk (I used coconut milk as that's what I had on hand)
1 cup shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese (3oz)
1 tsp powdered mustard
1/2 tsp salt + more as needed


Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Once the oil is shimmering, stir in the onion and cook for about 4 minutes, until tender but not browned.
Add the broccoli, broth and beans; increase the heat to high and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Let the soup cool for 15 minutes, then puree it in a blender in three batches, until smooth. Wipe out the saucepan as needed.
Return the blended soup to the saucepan over medium heat. Once the soup is bubbling at the edges, reduce the heat to low. Stir in the milk, 3/4 cup of the cheese, the powdered mustard and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Cook until just warmed through.
Taste and add more salt as needed. Divide among individual bowls or deep mugs, and garnish with portions using the remaining 1/4 cup of cheese. Serve hot.
Nutritional Information: Per serving: 290 calories, 14 g protein, 26 g, carbohydrates, 16 g fat, 7 g saturated fat, 25 mg cholesterol, 520 mg sodium, 7 g dietary fiber, 9 g sugar

Notes/Results: A simple and good broccoli soup. The cheese flavor is there--just not overpowering it like it can in the full fat version. Since my local store had bags  frozen broccoli on sale, it was both cheaper and faster (no chopping!) to use it instead of a head of broccoli. The soup is nice and creamy, rich and satisfying and I'd happily make it again.


I'm linking up at I Heart Cooking Clubs where it is Potluck week with any recipe from any of our 20 featured chefs--like Ellie Krieger. 

Let's see who is in the Souper Sundays kitchen this week!

Nancy of Colors 4 Health is here with a post on How to Make Scrumptious Hummus and a Recipe Round Up. Nancy says, "Hummus tastes delicious smeared on veggies or bread, as a dip on a crudit√©s platter, stuffed in a wrap, English muffin, bagel, pita pocket, or as a sandwich filling. Hummus looks and tastes fabulous atop luscious salad greens as well. Hummus is a food that's economical and good for your waistline as well as your pocketbook."
