GO FOR BOLD FLAVOR AT HOME
Ayesha Curry turns a relatively simple weeknight menu into a boldly flavored spread.
“Smoky flavors have become a part of my palette, and smoked paprika is a nice way to introduce that essence,” says Ayesha, who pairs it with harissa (a spicy Middle Eastern blend of chiles, cumin, and garlic) and chili powder to add kick to baked chicken thighs served over Roasted Red Pepper Rice.
BRAISED CABBAGE AND CARROTS
”My family loves the combo of cabbage and carrots in this dish. And seasonings like cumin make the vegetables exciting,” Ayesha says. “I can prepare all the vegetables ahead and cook them just before dinner.”
KALE, HALLOUMI, AND PEACH SALAD
Salty prosciutto and Halloumi cheese (a slightly springy white cheese packed in briny water), plus peaches and pecans, inspire the girls to eat this salad. Working olive oil into kale by hand tenderizes the leaves.
