View Full Version : The "what's in my fridge?" thread

I thought I'd start up a fun thread where we can post some of the more "exotic" items in our fridge, and others can come up with recipes to use them.
Right now I am sporting: mustard seeds, watercress, anise, those little garlic/onion hybrids, pomegranates, beet greens. I am looking for some good recipes to use any of these ingredients in before they spoil. :)
Post up what items are in your fridge, and I will try to come up with recipes for them as well.

Oh yes, and mustard greens. :) I still haven't figured out how to consume those in a smoothie without simultaneously crapping and spitting fire.

pomegranates= eat em on their own. YUM. OR put them through a juicer with oranges, or preferably, with BLOOD ORANGES. SUPER YUM
beet greens. marinate in olive oil, garlic, and whatever else you want overnight. theyll soften up nicely. or usually theyre tender enough to just dress with olive oil and garlic and eat right away.
i have yet to find a good thing to do with mustard greens, unless they are the baby baby ones in salad mix, and i have a bunch of the big ones in my greenhouse but theyre just too hot. if you have a dehydrator, ive thought about trying to make mustard chips using a kale chip recipe; might give you some hot spicy chips. but other than this, i dunno. If you have other greens like collards, spinach cabbabe, etc, you could roll them up with some mustard greens and chiffonade them (ie roll them up and then slice very finely so it ends up sort of shredded very finely. then put a tahini dressing over this. the other greens and the lemon and tahini help to cut the heat of the mustard
I have a bunch of sorrel, pak choi, and arugula i need to use. sick of all three in salads, but theyre the easiest greens to get here right now as i have them in the garden and the sorrel is wild.... ideas?
