Tonight’s dinner I have for you a meat dish, which fits in the summer, in the pan or on the grill. Turkey breast in skewer. Seasond with parika powder, rosemary, salt and pepper and olive oil. Then cooked in the pan with olive oil. Served with a fresh salad, like bell peppers, tomatoes, onions, chopped chive and cucumber it tastes wonderful. In order not to let it dry out, it drips a little oil on top.
For grill I used to marinate it overnight. Marinades are a must for any grilled food. Marinades add flavor and moisture for the meat. Tasty turkey breasts are rubbed with spices, bathed in a tangy marinade.
Fresh soup greens or vegetable soup consists of a bunch of different vegetables that are used to flavor dishes. It usually consists of 1-2 carrots, half a leek, a small piece of celery or celery green and a few branches of parsley or a piece of parsley root. As in many recipes I need only small amounts of greens, cleaned and cut the vegetables. Added to beef bones soup. So you can also process large amounts quickly. Then freeze in small containers or plastic sack for reservation if it is in season it’s really cheap. Sometimes it is only 29 cent per bunch or bundle. In Viktor Adler Market by the farmers you could get it for only 1 euro 3 bundles. And always have so quickly the required quantity. So for those who live in the vicinity of Vienna, this could be a good Tip for you!
Greens can be purchased throughout the year fresh. If you want to use only green soup for seasoning, you can cook for roughly cut it right at the beginning in the broth so that there is an intense flavor. The broth is then poured through a sieve before serving and remove the bouquet garni. If you want to let the greens but as vegetables in the broth, it is cut into small pieces until about 1/2 hour before end of cooking time and added to the broth. Just like what I did here tonight and I also added some small cut of potatoes and spring onions or the so called scallions. Which my daughter loved most!
Picture above served as dessert, our left over from my baked apple strudel last Monday. Maybe you will think we had a very heavy dinner tonight. Which is for a Filipino family is normal. For those who are not use to it that’s another story!
