Cook Day with TheCrystalDish
The Girls - We shared many laughs and it was such a great morning to cook great food together.
My beautiful friend, Amanda.... Thank you for opening up your beautiful home to us and hosting this event.
My sister from another mister... Maricris, my filipino soul sister!!! Love this girl right here!
Doing what women do best. Bonding and conversing around a kitchen island while we cook.
And back to work.....
These beauties.... On the left we have Radishes that we quartered, lightly drizzled with avocado oil and thyme, and on the right we have white sweet potatoes that we drizzled with a little avocado oil and tarragon. Cook these in a 350 oven for 30-40 min until tender, rotating every 15 min
Look at these beauties.... Veggie Noodles. Have you ever seen something so beautiful? These are yellow squash.
Right here we have the homemade marinara we made for the Chicken Parmesan.
28oz can crushed tomatoes
1 8oz can tomato paste
5 garlic cloves minced
1 white onion minced
2 tbs fresh basil minced
1 tsp fresh tarragon minced
1 tsp rosemary minced
1 tsp oregano minced
1 tsp sage minced
1 tbs avocado oil
In a saucepan over medium heat, warm avocado oil and sauté onion until translucent. Add garlic cloves and sauté until fragrant. Add remaining ingredients and cook 20-30 minutes until your sauce is cooked through... Here's the Fun Part...... Using either an immersion blender or regular blender, pulse mixture to desired consistency.
I myself like my sauce a little this for Chicken Parmesan, but it completely depends on your preference.
Here are some more pictures from our day of fun:
