Pasta with Sujuk and Spinach

Posted on

Coming home late one evening I was extremely hungry so I threw together a pasta dish in less than 15 minutes. This is one of my rare dishes containing meat.

I added some sujuk in a pan, then added mushroom, sweet pepper, snow peas and eventually spinach while the pasta cooked. The sujuk has sufficient salt for the entire dish, and because the vegetables are cooked in the meat grease (no extra oil needs to be added) they also acquire seasoning.



Guvecte Fasulye

I first had guvecte fasulye in Istanbul in December. It’s a nice, flavourful stew for when the weather turns colder, although I prefer it with chunks of beef rather than sujuk, which is how I enjoyed it in Istanbul. Here is a recipe.

Rating: Tasty – I will probably make it again

Taco salad makes a nice dinner or weekend lunch. I supply lettuce, grated cheese, ground beef, chopped olives, chopped sweet peppers, sour cream, tinned corn, salsa and tomatoes and let people assemble their own.

The other night I made bulgogi with ssamjang, which I served with a side of cucumber salad.
