Cordoniu Gran Cremant


A fresh batch of broth:
What better celebration
Excuse do we need?

Name: Cordoniu Gran Cremant
Type: sparkling wine
Recipe: Butternut Squash curry:  I got this ‘recipe’ from the Running Bug spam I received a week or so ago.  There were no quantities listed except ‘2 cans of tomatoes.’  Here’s what I did similar to their recipe…cube a butternut squash and a potato and fry these.  Add some red onion, turmeric, curry powder, red hot chillies, some chilli powder or paprika, ginger, and garlic and continue to heat about 5 minutes.  Into this, empty a can of tomatoes with juice then add some tomato purée (paste), a couple of fresh chopped tomatoes, some broth (which conveniently was just finishing nearby), some coriander (cilantro), parsley, and rinsed red lentils and simmer 15 minutes.  Add some frozen green peas and simmer another 5 minutes.  Serve on rice or, barring that, do what we did and serve on some urad dal (split lentils which have had the skin removed…lots of protein and fibre and the flavour is grand).

Review/notes: It’s crap cava, but it was on sale and what-the-heck, right?
