TASTE THE BLOOD

SMOKED PAPRIKA is the key ingredient added to animal-free recipes tasting of blood found on my animal-free websites. Other additives that enhance the smoked paprika thus the blood taste are garlic powder, dry mustard, turmeric and sea salt.

Smoked paprika is my new favorite spice. I’ve been using it in just about everything, even dessert. It’s like I’m addicted to it, and became addicted quickly. Just once – that’s all it took – and I was hooked.

Of course I buy this stuff in bulk, why wouldn’t I? I’m even considering putting it into veggie capsules and taking it as a nutrient. Nothing wrong with that. You may have noticed that I use a lot of herbs and spices in my cooking. Again, who wouldn’t? It’s not as if there’s a shortage of these powerful little foods.

Food and medicine all wrapped up in a tidy, tiny package for you to savor and enjoy – and that’s just the way I like it. Try telling my gustatory cortex and my olfactory lobes that it isn’t so.

Now how great is that?

Watch the price go up. I’d better stock up tomorrow.

FRIED IRISH POTATOES

Canned Irish potatoes pan-fried with green pepper, smoked paprika and rosemary, fresh garlic and ginger! Easy, quick and good!

Serves 4


3 T. liquid alternative butter or vegetable oil

2 c. diced green pepper (I used frozen – thaw, drain and squeeze to remove excess water from freezing)

2, 15 oz. cans Whole Irish Potatoes; drain well, cut into bite size pieces, then dry outside surfaces with paper towels, by lining bowl with several layers, and dropping in potato cubes, covering and shaking – I used Our Family brand

salt, pepper, smoked paprika, ground dried rosemary

fresh chopped garlic and ginger

ketchup or barbecue sauce


 

In large skillet, over medium heat, melt oil.

Add green pepper, salt to taste and saute till partially wilted.

Add dried potato cubes all at once in an even layer in the pan. Don’t stir or flip till bottom surface is golden brown.

While you wait, sprinkle tops of potato cubes evenly with salt, pepper, smoked paprika and ground rosemary – to taste

Flip the potatoes, stirring to evenly coat the spices and herb. Brown again by evenly distributing potatoes and waiting till they do their thing.

Raise heat to medium high for a short time to get an extra crisp on some cubes.

Add the fresh garlic and ginger during last 3-4 minutes of cooking.

Serve with ketchup or barbecue sauce.


 

Notes: This is how Steve likes his fried potatoes. Yes, he likes the canned ones. They are creamy and they don’t require much fuss nor time to make.

Onions good too with the peppers.
