For last week’s family movie night, we decided to watch Ratatouille AND make ratatouille for dinner. It was my first time making it. My verdict: it’s tasty and healthy. You can’t beat that!
1 package ravioli or some kind of pasta (optional)
2 diced onions
5 cloves minced garlic
1 diced yellow pepper
1 diced red pepper
1 diced eggplant
1 diced zucchini
1 can crushed tomatoes (I used the basil, oregano, and garlic flavored kind)
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper
Recipe adapted from www.pastaprima.com
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 diced large onion
4 cloves minced garlic
1 diced green bell pepper
1 minced jalapeño
20 ounces ground turkey breast
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons kosher salt
½ teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoons paprika
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into 1/2 inch cubes
1 28 ounce can tomatoes (not drained)
3 15 ounce can black beans, drained and rinced
32 ounces beef broth (one box/carton)
1 28 ounce can pumpkin puree (make sure you’re not using pumpkin pie filling
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the egg and egg yolks, remaining maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Slowly whisk the cream into the egg mixture until the two are well-combined.
Set the ramekins in a glass baking dish. Add hot water so it goes half way up the ramekins. This will prevent the eggs from cooking too fast. Fill the ramekins with mixture. Cook for 40-50 minutes making sure the custard is set and slightly jiggly but not liquid. Let the creme brulee cool for an hour before serving.
The last step is to sprinkle sugar on the top of each custard. You can either burn the sugar with a blow torch or broil it in the oven.
Serve and Enjoy!
