I've got a hankering for this dish and although I will be going to San Francisco soon I would like to know if there are any Los Angeles recommendations. A lot cheaper than airfare to the Bay area every time I want to have this dish.
The Broccolini stays perfectly al dente while picking up a nice bit of sear from the hot pan. Fish sauce and sambal oelek (ground fresh chile paste, available in the international aisle) give this side a Vietnamese profile.
This hearty black bean soup studded with crispy chorizo will quickly find a place in your recipe rotation. IT is easy to double and the perfect make-ahead: Freeze in individual portions and pull out what you need for a satisfying dinner or last.
Cooked dried black beans provide the wow factor in this simple dip; you could serve the blended beans alone and guests would swoon over the rich, full-bodied flavor. Use leftover dip as a spread for sandwiches or burritos, or stir into a bean soup.
