Here’s a delicious method to tenderize chicken that’s simple to boot! It’s also great for a crowd—simply double or triple the recipe. Be sure to pass on any remaining wheat beer for the chef to wet his whistle while he works ... over the barbecue.
Kebabs are delicious served with steamed rice. Another option is to serve them in warmed pitas with shredded greens, grated carrots, and dollops of yogurt.
Given the combination of honey, soy, and citrus, a delicious wheat beer with overtones of mild sweetness and light zest would pair well with this tasty chicken kebab recipe.
In medium-sized bowl, combine beer, honey, tamari or soy sauce, oil, garlic, orange zest, cumin, and paprika. Whisk together until blended.
Cut boneless chicken breasts into 1 in (2.5 cm) cubes. Stir chicken cubes into marinade until evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
Soak wooden skewers for at least 30 minutes before threading chicken. Thread 4 to 5 chicken cubes onto each skewer. Reserve marinade.
Grease barbecue grill and preheat to medium-high. Grill chicken kebabs for 5 to 8 minutes, turning several times and brushing with remaining marinade. Chicken is done when meat thermometer placed in the thickest portion of the meat reads 165 F (75 C).
Remove to platter and drizzle with lemon juice. Scatter parsley and cilantro overtop. Garnish with lemon wedges, green onions, and crushed chillies, if using.

In this enchilada riff, we stuff everything into a roasted poblano pepper shell, rather than tortillas, to pack an extra veggie serving into your meal and trim the starchy calories. If you can’t find poblanos, which are mild, dark green Mexican peppers, you can substitute green bell peppers. Flour power Made from nixtamalized corn (corn soaked in limewater), masa harina flour adds a touch of corny flavour to enchilada stuffing or a pot of chili.
These crab-stuffed portobello mushrooms can do double duty as a fancy starter for a casual dinner party or a light main course on any given night. Meaty and umami-rich portobellos serve as a holder for a light-tasting seafood salad. Gills begone Even though the gills of mushrooms are edible, they will darken and discolour everything they touch. Besides, after you scrape out the gills, you’ll have more room for stuffing. And don’t discard the stems; they can be saved and used when making veggie stock.
Serving saucy lentils in squash halves is a sure-fire way to elevate your plant-based menu. And, yes, the whole bowl is edible, skin and all. If desired, you can add dollops of Greek yogurt or sour cream. Spice of life Garam masala, a blend of spices traditionally used in Indian cooking, usually includes cardamom, black pepper, cloves, nutmeg, fennel, cumin, and coriander. It’s great on roasted meats and vegetables.
“Germans do potatoes in general very well,” says Canadian expat Chris Gilles, who now lives in Munich and has celebrated many an Oktoberfest there. “Knödel seem kind of rubbery. You don’t really think it’s potato when you first see it, but it’s tasty.” But he might be surprised to find that this alive -inspired version of Bavarian potato dumplings is made with a combination of potato and cauliflower, because as anyone who’s eaten cauliflower gnocchi knows, the low-carb vegetable is a great way to lighten up starch-heavy foods (and Biergarten menus). Happy Knödelfest! The original version of these snacks are so popular that it even gets its own food fest: Knödelfest, which happens in September in Austria, about a 1 1/2-hour drive from Munich. If alive threw a Knödelfest, these dumplings would definitely be on the menu, served simply as snacks with sliced radishes and fresh parsley or dill, or topped with butter, beer gravy, or mushroom sauce. The dumpling test You can test one dumpling by shaping it and then boiling it before shaping the rest. If the water is lower than a boil and it still falls apart, add more starch to the batter before shaping another ball and testing again.
