Saag Paneer

Roasted Vegetables with Quinoa and Green Tahini Sauce

From Bon Appetit 2014 Food Lover's Cleanse

This combination and modification of three Bon Appetit recipes goes excellent together and produces a follow-up salad for lunches or a dinner later in the week. The Tahini sauce needs to be done at least 1 day in advance, and the vegetable roasting can largely be done ahead as well.

Serves 2 with leftovers for a salad (see below).

Great quality, seasonal menu from local producers. Great wine list, fantastic cocktails, warm and friendly staff. Everything we ate was amazing, but the appetizer portions are a bit stingy. Eight dollars for a smallish beet cut into quarters for a table of six? I mean, charge $2 or throw another beet or three on the plate. The entree portions were much more reasonable.

Baked Oysters with Bacon and Leeks

We had some leftover pre-shucked oysters and used them to make this Bon Appetit recipe. The recipe here originally used an entire 16-oz jar of pre-shucked oysters, but we halved it; serves two.

1/2 tablespoon butter
1/2 tablespoon all purpose flour
1/2 cup whipping cream

2 slices thick bacon (preferably applewood-smoked), chopped
1 tablespoons grated Pecorino Romano cheese

2 cups thinly sliced leeks (white and pale green parts only; from 2 large leeks)
