Created two great salads this weekend. It's spring and in the past I would certainly have used pastas. One was a Sweet Potato Salad that I made to go with the pork tenderloin. The other, a corn and black eyed pea salad was spicy with cumin and also worked with the leftover pork really well.
I have been thinking about crusts for the last few weeks. What about things like oven fried chicken? In the past I have used melba toast as it's dry and crunchy and holds up really well. I started experimenting with corn tortillas, grinding them and using them for crusts. Tonight I perfected that with a Tortilla-Crusted Chicken. It's really fine but getting the same crispiness will be a challenge I think. Living with Celiac Disease, Part IV
This recipe was designed to use layers of eggplant in place of the traditional strips of lasagna pasta. One thing to keep in mind with this recipe is to cook the sauce long enough so that it is fairly thick. The eggplant will give up a fair amount of water while baking, and if the sauce is too thin, the "lasagna" won't hold together well.
