Italian Chicken and Provolone Panini

How to Make a Panini in a Cast Iron Skillet -- powered by ehow

Enjoy this video recipe for Italian chicken and provolone panini. You can fill your sandwich with anything you like. Substitute chicken for turkey, ham and roast beef and choose the cheese of your choice. I also like to swap out the greens with spinach, kale or grilled vegetables. Make sure to press the sandwich so that you get a crispy crust and the flavors blend together.

  • How to make Borscht (Beet Stew)

    For all of those who are fans of beets, this soup is for you. As a chef I understand the richness that beets bring to a dish but do not always appreciate the flavor. Lets just say they're growing on me. Even so, a few years ago the mere mention of Borscht used to give me the chills until I tried this simple and healthy recipe.

    The history of borscht dates back to Russian, Eastern and Central Europe. Beets are the main attraction giving this stew a ruby red color. It is also loaded with root veggies like potato, onion, turnips, parsnips and carrots. Tomato and beef broth are big flavor enhancers while a dollop of sour cream a a garnish makes this stew really creamy.

    How to make Quinoa Burgers

    Quinoa - pronounced (Keen Wa) - is a central and south american seed/grain that is loaded with tons of nutrients (calcium, phosphorus, and iron), all of the essential amino acids and protein (14 grams). It is very easy to cook and can be used in a variety of dishes all throughout the day.

    Give this recipe a whirl and feel free to mix in a variety of sautéed (and cooled) vegetables, grains like wheatberrys, rolled oats and bulgur, and your choice of seasonings and spices. You can also make a big batch and portion the burgers to freeze for later use.

    Quinoa Burgers

  • 1/3 C Olive, Pitted and Chopped
  • 15 oz. Canned Beans, Drained
  • 1 Lemon, Juiced

Allow this to chill in the fridge for for 20 minutes to firm up. Scoop the mixture with an ice cream scoop, flatten with your hands and set aside. Place a skillet over medium heat, add the oil and when it smokes place the patties into the pan. Brown the patties on ones side, turn and repeat.

    Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

  • 1 C Roasted Red Peppers
  • 2 tsp. Balsamic Vinegar
