NYT Cooking: Green sauce means different things to different cooks, but I like the Iberian interpretation best. It draws its color from parsley and its impact from chilies, scallions, and, mostly, garlic. I find it difficult to use too much garlic here, and have never really reached the outer limit; my recipe calls for six cloves, but twice that amount is not unreasonable. <br/><br/>Sh...
This is the most minimalist eggplant Parmesan imaginable, really an eggplant gratin with tomatoes (If memory serves me, that’s how they make it in Parma: no mozz, no meat.) You cook the eggplant in abundant oil Yes, you can broil it or bake it, but I really think the taste of eggplant slices that have had oil boiled right through them is dreamy
Garlic Shrimp Mark Bittman's Way, hands down the best garlic shrimp you've ever had!
NYT Cooking: This banana bread from Mark Bittman's "How to Cook Everything" is really something special.

Judging by the quality of this particular dish, he succeeded.
NYT Cooking: Even vegetable stews can have more vegetables. This recipe adds a pound of kale -- that's right, a full pound -- to softened onions, carrots and celery, combined with beans and tomatoes. It's simply a matter of bringing the other vegetables together in a simmer, then adding the kale and topping with the toast. The whole dish bakes in the oven for a few minutes to%2...
