Cooking Light - May 2007

Looking over the May issue, I ended up making note of quite a few of them, including almost every recipe from a section entitled "Fiery & Cool". Some of the things that caught my eye were a pineapple salsa, plantains mashed with coconut milk and a banana and black bean puree - all things that wouldn't normally appear on my table, but sounded very appealing.

As always, what catches my eye and what actually ends up on our table are usually two very different things, but in any's my list:

Toasted Millet with Parmesan
Arugula Pesto
Chickpea, Chard, and Tomato Stew
Raisin-Honey Milk Bread
Banana-Coconut Ice Cream
Pineapple-Lime Sorbet
Pine Nut and Lemon Orzo
Sesame Green Beans
Raspberry-Ginger Sorbet
Spinach-Cheese Bake
Grilled Tuna with White Bean and Charred Onion Salad
Chicken Vegetable Potpie
Lemony Chickpea Dip
Szechuan Spicy Noodles with Carrot-Cucumber Relish
Jerk Chicken
Indonesian Beef Curry with Coconut Rice
Coconut-Chile Snapper with a Caribbean Bean Puree
Chipotle Pork Soft Tacos with Pineapple Salsa
Chile-Rubbed Steak with Corn and Red Pepper Relish My Review!

Just a quick post today - now it's off to enjoy the beautiful weather today with a visit to the Italian ice shop, a baseball game and steaks on the grill for dinner tonight..............

Edited to add: Erika from Tummy Treasure has added her list of recipes to try from the May issue of Cooking Light.


  1. Good list! I'll play this month, and I'll post my list on Monday.

    Got the new Eating Well today too, so I'll add a couple of recipes from that as well.

  2. Erika - I'll look for your post and add your link. :)
