I almost kissed the guy at the farmers market when he offered me the 2 remaining baskets of figs at a seriously discounted price. I look forward to fresh figs all year and, while I’m perfectly happy just eating them plain, stem and all, this relish is awesome.

Ingredients

  • 2 fully-cooked sausages, any kind $4
  • 1 tsp olive oil Pantry
  • 6 large fresh figs $4
  • 4 large fresh strawberries $2
  • 1 small bunch basil leaves $1
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar $3 for a 16 oz.
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped Pantry
  • 1 cup quinoa $2
  • 1 small bunch parsley, chopped finely $1
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon $0.50
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry

Recipe Serves 2

Directions

  1. Cook quinoa according to directions. Set aside.
  2. Slice sausages on the bias. Heat the olive oil in a grill pan or heavy frying pan over high heat. Cook sausages until marks appear. Flip and cook on the other side.
  3. In a food processor or blender, combine 5 of the figs, the strawberries, the basil, one clove of garlic and the cider vinegar. Puree until smooth with small chunks. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Toss slightly-cooled quinoa with the lemon, remaining garlic, and parsley.
  5. To assemble dish, make a mound of quinoa on each plate. Spoon the relish around the edge of the quinoa and arrange the sausage slices atop the quinoa. Top each mound with half of a fig and a little more basil for garnish.

For grilling times we use the cookout calculator at charcoalbob.com. Enter the thickness of each boneless chicken breast and it will give you instructions for how to grill them so that they all come off the grill at the same time, nice and juicy.

I was about to kiss the boy at the farmer’s market when he offered me 2 baskets of figs that I left for a very reasonable price. I can’t wait to get fresh figs all year round, and though I love eating it, baking and all, it tastes great. <a href=‘https://du-home-internet.com/’>du home internet abu dhabi</a>

Mushrooms will in general get to some degree dry whenever barbecued plain, so it’s ideal to marinate them for a couple of hours in an oil-based marinade or slather them with a spice or seasoned margarine during flame broiling. String little mushrooms on sticks so they lie level on the flame broil grind, for simple barbecuing and turning.
