We were recently contacted by Cookin’ Greens to develop a recipe for their upcoming appearance (March 24th) on the Dragons’ Den, where they will be presenting their innovative “farm-to-freezer” product line. Given that we have the power of two minds behind BS’ in the Kitchen, we were asked to tackle the meanest of all the “Dragons” Mr. Kevin O’Leary! Our challenge was to create an O’Leary inspired appetizer using Cookin’ Greens Chopped Spinach.
Here is what we made (Deep Fried Spinach Ravioli stuffed with Spinach and Ricotta). Of course they can be boiled, rather than fried (I actually think I prefer them boiled!).

I first saw fried pickles awhile back and thought, what a strange, but interesting combination that was. Since then and more recently my eyes have come across more fried pickles and figured what the heck, they would be easy to make and I have all the ingredients so let’s try ‘em! After texting Carlene and telling her about the next blog recipe I was going to make, it became clear we share the same brainwaves. She responds “I just bought all the ingredients to make those!”, well sister, looks like I beat you to the punch! BUT maybe we will get lucky and she will do a bit of a twist and share her recipe too!
Let’s get to this recipe. It was strange but tasty (as evidenced by the empty bowl I found myself with afterwards…).

What can you do with leftover risotto other than eat it? Make Risotto Balls and THEN eat it! As I began to get hungry again after making my breakfast risotto, I began wondering what I could make for lunch. Feeling a little lazy I was struck by inspiration and decided to make risotto balls out of my leftover Breakfast Risotto.
