A week has gone by and I just realized I have been making food to cater to my hot sauce craving (this is not ok). Â I may have a mild obsession with spicy food… Â I like to blame it on Sheena, my Indian friend, whose mother is a rock star in the kitchen. I am currently working on getting her recipes for falafel (made in a waffle iron) and â€œstreet foodâ€ aka pani puri. Â When I dream of indian food those are the 2 dishes (+tikka masala) on my mind. Â Hopefully they will make anÂ appearanceÂ on the blog soon!
Now lets step away from hot sauce and move onto another type of heat, horseradish. Â There is something about the pungent flavor of horseradish that can make a simple something (let’s say asparagus) absolutely addictive. Â No really, this little appetizer is hard to step away from if you have a spot in your heart for a little horseradish zing. Â My mothers best friend, Shawna (another amazing cook in my life), brought these bad boys over a couple years ago and they are now on my list of appetizers to makeÂ every timeÂ we have company over.
Asparagus Roast Beef Roll-Ups
- 3 dozen asparagus spears
- Â 1 pkgÂ (8 ounces) chive and onion cream cheese
- 3-5 tablespoonsÂ horseradish
- 2 packages (5 ozÂ each) sliced roast beef
Boil water and lightly cook asparagus for 2-3 minutes. Â You want them to beÂ crispy! Â Mix together cream cheese and horseradish. Add horse radish to your own taste, usually 3-5 table spoons. Â Spread each slice of roast beef with a thin layer of mixture. Roll up the asparagus spear inside of the roast beef.
