Recently I got to know about a Wiki project called MyCityCuisine.org (http://www.mycitycuisine.org/index.php/Main_Page). Their tagline says it all – “A Traveler’s Guide To Local Cuisine”. As they mention in their site, this is a project to create a free, reliable and up-to-date guide to the most original and tasty traditional foods from different countries of the world.
Anyways, so now, MyCityCuisine is looking for contributors. I am sure some of you might be interested in contributing to this project – I urge you to please do so! Help making this resource as unique and diverse as possible.
As I was going through the project, I noted that, somehow, I was reading up a lot about – sausages! Lentil soup with bacon & sausage, Boudin sausage and what not. And before I could read any further, I just wanted to dive into a plateful of sausages. I just had some plain skinless chicken sausages lying in my refrigerator, some fresh Italian basil thriving in a vase in the kitchen, and a wonderful bottle of extra virgin olive oil in the pantry cupboard. Throw in some lovely fresh ground pepper & some sea salt, and what you get is this:
Sausages Sautéd In Olive Oil & Tossed In Basil & Ground Pepper:
- As many sausages as you want, chopped into bite size bits.
- 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil.
- Bit of onions, cut into long slices.
- A handful of fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped.
- Fresh ground pepper, to taste.
- Salt, to taste.
A very simple process. Just lightly heat up the olive oil in a pan, saute the onions, toss in the sausages, basil, pepper & salt and let it simmer till sausages are slightly crisp on the outside. For a variation, use a bit of garlic oil instead of plain olive oil.
