The star of tonight’s show was the rhubarb salsa, which I found through Food Gawker. I did a search for “rhubarb” because I had no idea what to do with my farmers market purchase.
Instead of fish, I sauteed some baby portobellos with a little olive oil, white wine vinegar, garlic and liquid smoke.
I also made a black bean soup that I saw while browsing marthastewart.com last weekend. I used veggie chicken broth and Tofutti’s Better than Sour Cream. The garlic-pepper sauce is great just on its own.
I wanted to make this guava margarita recipe. Unfortunately, I could not find guava puree, even at the Latino grocery store. Guava juice from concentrate with “sugar and/or high fructose corn syrup” (???) and frozen strawberries are not a good substitute. To make matters worse, H did not screw the bottom on the blender before putting it away and I did not notice until everything, myself included, was covered in fresh-squeezed lime juice.
