Good Morning, Peoplefriends!


I will now be attempting to make quick-pickled radishes. Pretty, aren't they?

As I mentioned on Twitter, we're going to a super fun, halfway vegan, semi-glut free, verrrrrrrrrrrry hipster t-giving dinner, and I wanted to bring something a little unusual.

I found two recipes (1, 2) that look promising, but I can't decide whether to split the difference or make two separate batches....

I'LL KEEP YOU POSTED.

  1. Make two separate batches so you know whether or not to split the difference next time!

  2. both recipes sound good; i trust d-lebz in all things and think his suggestion of a chile is a good one (that's the secret to the pickled green beans i make). i'd try a little of each; if one fails you've got a backup, and if they both work you get to present them as pickled radishes two ways, which provides that key hipster teeter between thoughtfulness and douchebaggery.

    1. i think *will* do both. our hostess is not such a big fan of spicy.... (she's from ohio, so we forgive her.)

  3. I've used several DL recipes, including pickled turnips, and they were all great. The she simmers recipe seems too sugary, but then I generally dislike sweet pickles.

  4. so, i made these last year and am making them again: http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/baked-quinoa-patties-recipe.html

    it is nice to have something that you can soak up gravy and cranberry sauce. sure you could mod it a little to make at least gluten free?

    ps, vegan is SO not hipster.

    1. the dishes have been divvied. (and the gravy is rarely gluten-free.)


      but i will try that recipe at some point.

  6. Yum. Now I'M tempted to make two recipes of pickled radishes. I'm playing hookey from Thanksgiving - pickled radishes sound fun and delicious.

  8. David Lebovits is the jam. I highly suggest the almond cake on his website. You can easily make it gluten free by finding GF almond paste and subbing the wheat for almond flour. And you get to make it all in your food processor!

  9. A "halfway vegan, semi-glut free, verrrrrrrrrrrry hipster t-giving dinner"? Are the readers of East Side Bride seriously too afraid to point out the utter ridiculousness and pretentiousness of this? It sounds like an eating disorders convention. No wonder every outfit posted here is some ugly rag hanging on a skeletal figure. Apparently its no longer cool to eat.

    1. Agreed. Also, it's not hipster if you call it hipster.

    2. eating disorder convention? OR do you not realize that some people can't actually eat gluten because of allergies and not because it's a fad?

    3. Vegan/gluten free is all or nothing. Halfway and semi count for nothing when you have an allergy.

    4. You sound irritable. Maybe cutting back on the gluten would help.
