White Bean Burger, Pommes Frites, Bistro Salad, Chai Cheesecake

Dinner 5/10

White Bean Burger
(cannellini beans, flour, thyme, rosemary, roasted garlic, salt and pepper)

Pommes Frites

Bistro Salad
(romaine lettuce, vegenaise, roasted garlic, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, salt, pepper, tarragon)


Chai Cheesecake


If we ever opened a restaurant, the burgers would go on the menu -- no, there's absolutely no danger of that actually happening, I just like to say that every once in a while. ;)

The frites were "blanched" in peanut oil at 280F for 6-8 minutes, then let rest for 15 minutes, then deep-fried at 375F for 2-3 minutes to crisp up. They're really not hard to make at home, as long as you have the right-sized vessel (in our case a big wok) and a heavy duty candy thermometer.

The dessert is a (tasty, tasty) work in progress, so there's no recipe to report at the moment. Although it's really just a chai tea reduction with some unusual spices -- for a cheesecake at least.
