There is not one single method of cooking beans. At its most basic, you want to simmer the pot until the beans are soft. Soaking can speed up the process and vegetables or stock will make them more flavorful. It's really that simple. There's all kinds of fine tuning and variables, but basically, this is it. Normally on a bean cooking day (which frankly is everyday at Rancho Gordo), I put the beans to soak in the morning, after rinsing in lots of cool water and checking for small debris. I cover the beans by about an inch or so.

TikTok Pesto Eggs Are The New Viral Baked Feta Pasta

You might not have heard of green eggs since you were reading Dr Seuss back in the day, but it turns out the unconventional breakfast dish is having a resurgence on TikTok.

Essentially fried eggs with pesto as a base, the tasty recipe tweak is the perfect way to add a bit of excitement to your bog standard eggs on toast.

Originally shared on TikTok by user Amy Wilichowski, the recipe has now been copied by hundreds all over the web, who have gone on to customise it so it suits their palettes.

You can make the dish as cheesy and packed with greens as you like, depending on your pesto of choice. Plus, you can even experiment with red pesto or vegan pesto if you fancy.

To make the recipe, all you have to do is add a tablespoon of your desired pesto into the pan, and spread it around (no need to add oil as well, as long as your pesto is oil based).

Then, simply fry your eggs as normal in the pan and they pick up all the flavours of the pesto in the process.

The eggs are being branded 'peggsto' online, and can be customised with just about anything you fancy, from spinach for extra green-ness to chilli oil for an added kick.

How to Celebrate Dr. Seuss Day With Classic Foods From His Best Stories

By adding your email you agree to get updates about Spoon University Healthier

As the son of a long time elementary school teacher, I was always reminded of the importance of the second day of March — Dr. Seuss’s birthday. We’ve all had at least some exposure to the author through his famous books and their movie adaptations, but many of us (who aren’t offspring of teachers) fail to remember this day as Dr. Seuss’s birthday when it comes around each year.

First, a little background: Dr. Seuss’s real name was Theodore Seuss Geisel, and he was born on March 2, 1904 in Massachusetts. He later attended Dartmouth College, where he was involved in editing a humor magazine called Jack-O-Lantern.

Here’s a fun fact that you’ve never learned from your old teachers: after being caught at school drinking with friends at a party he threw, Geisel was consequently banned from being a part of the magazine. However, he still continued to publish under a few variations of “Seuss,” eventually leading to his famous pseudonym “Dr. Seuss.”

After he became uninterested with continuing his education at Oxford University in England, Dr. Seuss called it quits on his academic career and returned to the United States to begin his life as a cartoonist.

Eventually, he had found his true calling in children’s literature, and published the many books we all hold dear to our hearts, such as The Cat In The Hat, Horton Hears A Who, The Lorax, How The Grinch Stole Christmas, Green Eggs And Ham, Oh, The Places You’ll Go! — the list goes on. His stories are famous for their fun rhymes, a characteristic that he contributes to his mother when she told him nursery rhymes before bed.

So how do we celebrate this man’s birthday? Well, one way is join the nation in the Seuss-inspired National Read Across America Day, which is a holiday dedicated to bringing together books and children of all ages.

Another way to celebrate is the old fashioned way — with food. So here’s a short list of foods mentioned in Dr. Seuss books that you can (attempt to) create and enjoy on Dr. Seuss Day.

Green Eggs And Ham

Every year on March 2nd, I would find a steaming plate of green eggs and ham waiting for me along with an ecstatic mother on one of her favorite holidays. This classic Dr. Seuss meal comes from the book with the same name. You don’t need Sam-I-Am to try this colorful combination yourself — some green food coloring will do the trick.

Who-roast-beast and Who-hash

The only better day to enjoy a plate of Who-roast-beast and canned Who-hash would be on Christmas — the day that the Grinch’s heart grew three sizes. While Roast Beast may be unavailable for the Grinch to carve, and Who-hash isn’t found in any grocery stores, a substitution of roast beef and this Who-hash recipe (followed by a delicious Who-pudding) a will make you feel like a true Who in Who-ville. Feast! Feast! Feast!

Truffula Fruit

We can never know what the Truffula fruit truly tastes like, but we can trust the opinions of the local Brown Bar-ba-loots, who feed off of the Truffula trees daily.

In The Lorax, the Dr. Seuss sends a message to all on the importance of the conservation of nature, the harmful effects of pollution, and the impact of one person taking action when it is needed.

Though the Truffula tree is not grown naturally here on Earth, we can recreate it with this adorable recipe and attempt to capture its fruit with some creative adaptations of our own favorite fruits.

Beezle-Nut Juice and Stew

In Horton Hears A Who!, Beezle-Nuts seem to be used in a variety of different ways (and in this story, all are used to threaten Horton and the Whos): boiling hot Beezle-Nut oil, Beetle-Nut stew, and Beezle-Nut juice.

Like Truffula trees, Beezle-Nuts are impossible to find, but a nutty shake and peanut stew are acceptable replacements for celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday.

Moose Juice and Goose Juice

Two of the biggest mysteries of the world remain unsolved: what is in Moose Juice and what is in Goose Juice in the story of Dr. Seuss’s Sleep Book?

Adding to that, why is Moose Juice gross to a goose while Goose Juice tastes bad to a moose? Is there a reason that a goose can’t enjoy the moose’s juice? Does a Goose like different juice than a moose? I tried to think it through logically, but there’s just no use.

At Seuss Landing in Universal Studios Orlando, they take a crack at this mystery, serving tangerine juice (Moose Juice) and sour green apple juice (Goose Juice). All flavors aside, any green and orange juices are appropriate to drink on this day to mimic the two mysterious Moose and Goose liquids if you use your imagination.

Grab a book and enjoy these Seussical foods while we read across America and celebrate the man who still brings happiness to millions to this day in the form of absurd characters, radical situations, relevant and everlasting lessons, and, of course, memorable rhymes.

Dr. Suess Birthday Party Ideas and Dr. Seuss Party Food ideas

Studies have shown that if you like this, you will also love the following recipes. I have pulled them together for you right here!

Dr. Seuss – smash cake

First birthdays are about excitement and new adventures and smash cakes are a big part of the celebration, and for a lot of kids, it’s often their first taste of sugar. My oh my, you’re in for a ride.

Aptly named the ‘smash’ cake is to be SMASHED at the party, and they are often tiny, about 4″ – 5″ in diameter. I made this one to look like the Cat in the Hat‘s red and white striped hat. The mom wanted it to be very frosted, lots of fluff, perfect for smashing.

For this particular 1st birthday it was a Dr. Seuss theme – so fun, and how fitting that today is actually Dr. Theodor Seuss Geisel’s birthday!

brown sugar cake (baked in a 9吉 pan)
vanilla buttercream
red food gel dye
thin black licorice

Divide the vanilla buttercream into two bowls, dyeing one with the red food gel dye. Set aside.

Using a 5″ round cutter, cut out three circles of cake. Stack the cake with a thin layer of frosting in between.

Frost a thin crumb coat with the vanilla buttercream, then alternate the red and white stripes around the cake.

Thin black licorice makes a good separator between the stripes, not only does it cover mistakes but it give the cake a clean, animated look.

To top it off, I printed out the Cat in the Hat himself, with a little message to the birthday boy.

I’d say by the looks of it, this cake was definitely loved and smashed to smithereens!

This vodka sauce will shoot you to Italian grandmother status in no time! Flavored with garlic and basil, the creamy sauce is served over rigatoni with lots of Parmesan. Simmering with butter and half an onion infuses a richness, and the vodka is cooked off leaving a fruity undertone. Then it's blended with Parmesan cheese until smooth. This vodka sauce pasta is so full of flavor, it’s worth every second of that simmer. Serve with Fennel Orange Salad for a dynamic pairing.

Total Time: 1 hour, 35 minutes

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (1 1/4 to 1 1/2 pounds), trimmed
  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Generous pinch of saffron (optional)
  • 3 cups shredded cabbage (about 1/2 small head)
  • 4 cups cooked brown rice, preferably basmati or jasmine
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley (optional)
  • 1 lemon, sliced (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat two 8-inch-square baking dishes or foil pans with cooking spray.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 4 chicken thighs, and cook, turning once, until both sides are lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside. Repeat with the remaining chicken thighs. Pour off all but about 1 tablespoon fat from the pan.

Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and onions to the pan and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring, until soft and golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Stir in garlic, turmeric, paprika, and saffron, if using cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Transfer the onions to a plate and set aside.

Return the pan to medium-high heat and add cabbage. Cook, stirring, until wilted, about 3 minutes. Stir in rice, lemon juice, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and half of the reserved onion. Continue cooking until the rice is well coated and heated through, 5 to 7 minutes.

Divide the rice mixture between the prepared baking dishes nestle 4 of the reserved chicken thighs in each dish. Top each with half of the remaining cooked onions. Cover both dishes with foil. (Label one and freeze for up to one month.) Bake the remaining casserole, covered, for 30 minutes.

Uncover and continue baking until a thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the chicken registers 165 degrees F and the onions are starting to brown around the edges, 5 to 10 minutes more. Garnish with parsley and lemon slices, if desired.
