OK so I am looking to hear about your 'unconventional' culinary concoctions?
I tend to come up with some bizarre combinations when I am either in a rush to head out the door, go to bed or have very limited ingredients. It's important that I get the calories and nutrition in as I am currently IFing from bedtime to 14:00 and so I dont want to just snack for dinner.
Earlier this week I made:
4 x Pan fried chicken breasts on a bed of a whole large diced cucumber with melted butter and coconut oil.
Tonight I just made:
6 egg butter-fried omelette with a handful almonds and garnished with coconut oil.
Obviously these are not quite the balanced meals, but quick focused meals nevertheless, especially if I am now even more late for a night out since I decided to right this post. :)
Haha, really sounds like this is going to be another great "food porn" thread :D ..let's go
Pork liver and pureed asparagus was the only thing left in the fridge and turned out to be really delicious:
Well, not sure if it's really weird, but I've never seen anybody puree asparagus, so at least it was weird for me :)
Had this super weird meal as a kid. Some sort of dehydrated lab product. They basically worked really hard to take all of the usable nutrients out of it then they went and added synthetic ones back in along with a bunch of other things and a but load of sugar. I think it was called "fruity pebbles" or some such thing.
I'll wrap pretty much anything up in nori, avert your eyes if you are a sushi purist.
Last night the combo was pickled herring, smooshed avocado, mustard and a little wasabi.
Other grab-n-go rolls I've made:
Just Kerrygold butter
cold potato chunks, salt and butter
aged cheddar cheese and mustard
cilantro and kippers
lunch meat of any variety
egg salad, tuna salad
So this might not be weird, but my coworkers made me feel weird. This was my breakfast earlier this week: I had a pile of white rice, a pile of carrot salad (shredded carrots, dried cranberries and pineapple chunks), 2 pieces of bacon, 2 boiled eggs with homemade guacamole and a side of fried plantains (in bacon fat) and decaf coffee with tablespoon of coconut oil. NOMNOMNOM. Being weird feels soooooo good.
I frequently make an omelet with 4 eggs, a can of sardines, frozen chopped organic spinach, garlic powder, fennel seeds and red pepper flakes. It smells wretched (especially to those not eating it) but I love it so. I top it with extra virgin olive oil and go to town on it.
A few weeks ago I came in to eat lunch with my psych teacher, and she said that the other day when I'd been absent I'd missed out on chocolate chip cookies (experiment-related, apparently). I casually mentioned that I don't eat grains or sugar anyway, and then pulled out a huge container of cold, fat-covered sardine omelet pieces. The look of confusion and shock my teacher gave me was priceless.
This is what I came up with that allows me to eat liver.
Equal parts liver and bacon
Salt and pepper
Cook in a skillet until the liver is just cooked through.
So what's weird? In the end I add a handful of coconut flakes to sop up the grease. mmmmmm...
I guess this isn't super weird but kind of a throw everything together conglomeration that turned out awesome! Pan fried some chorizo sausage with onions, peppers, mushrooms. Popped it in the oven on broil with some spicy cheese on top. Made some zucchini latkes in bacon fat until nice and crispy. Threw them on top of the previous mix and put it bake in the oven. Fried 2 eggs over easy & put them on top. Delish.
A quick go to when running out the door is a few boiled eggs with a nice scoop of butter, salt & pepper. Warmed & mashed up. (add crispy broken up bacon for extra yum!)
I just finished a grass fed steak that I cooked lightly in lots of butter with a couple of anchovies in it. After the steak was done, I drizzled the butter into a beatten egg yolk.
So, rare steak with anchovy hollandaise sauce. Would have been really good with asparagus, but I didn't have any.
