First meal we made from the new CSA box was portabella fajitas with roasted poblano sauce.
Decided I was in the mood for roasting peppers last night, so roasted the sweet peppers, jalepenos and poblanos (I picked up the jalepenos and poblanos at the farmers’ market to try this sauce).
I caramelized two onions, and sauted sliced portabellas with olive oil, cumin, chili and white pepper. Just before I took them off the heat, I tossed in garlic and sauted it for about 30 seconds so it didn’t burn and become bitter.
Fajitas themselves were flour tortillas, the portabella mixture, carmelized onions, sweet peppers and queso cheese. Mmmmmm. Very smoky and filling, exactly what I was in the mood to eat.
The poblano sauce, which was an experiment, was not our favorite. I won’t probably make this one again, and we scraped a good amount off. It was pretty bitter, which I think may have been from a combination of things – I think the recipe itself didn’t balance well, the cilantro overpowered the poblanos, and my garlic may have been a little old to use raw in the sauce.
Dessert was raspberries and fresh whipped cream with vanilla over vanilla wafers – this was really good, and we will definitely do this one again. Maybe with pears tonight. Hmmm….
CSA items used: sweet peppers, onions, cilantro, raspberries.
