Midwest Living May June 2019 Recipes

Our May June 2019 issue highlights a domed and airy pavlova, ideas for using mint, and recipes inspired by outdoor classes at Chef Camp in Minnesota
  • Towering Pavlova

    Towering Pavlova

    Minneapolis-based Instagram star and pro baker Zoe Francois shared this recipe for a gorgeously shaped pavlova that rises higher than all the competition. It's filled with whipped cream, lemon curd, raspberries and—if you are feeling tropical and adventurous—passion fruit, too.

  • Tomato-Butter Pan Sauce with Mint

    Tomato-Butter Pan Sauce with Mint

    This luscious (and easy!) sauce is good enough to eat with a spoon. If you're feeling more civilized than that, try it over pasta or seared or grilled chicken or whitefish, or as an appetizer dipping sauce with bread.

  • Chilean Pork Roast

    Chilean Pork Roast

    At Chef Camp in Minnesota, this spiced pork roast is cooked over open coals, but we've streamlined it for the oven. It's fantastic, especially with grilled pineapple or Pineapple-Lemongrass Chutney.

    Delicious with pork, this sweet, tangy chutney would also be a good match for chicken or a cheese board. At Chef Camp in Minnesota, it's served with Chilean-Spiced Pork Roast.

  • Vegan Gumbo

    Vegan Gumbo

    If you usually walk past the okra at the farmers market, stop—and make this nutritious meat-and dairy-free take on the New Orleans classic. The recipe comes from Lachelle Cunningham, who is a chef and advocate for the Twin Cities soul food scene.

  • Piña Piña Colada

    "Garnish with a pineapple leaf, an umbrella, a lounge chair, the sun and a pool," say the founders of Mean Mule, the KC distillery that concocted this crazy-easy summer drink.

    Dollop this sauce on grilled chicken, fold it into a Greek wrap, or use it to top a hamburger, along with lettuce and tomato. The recipe comes from Chef Camp in northern Minnesota.

  • Indian-Spiced Grilled Corn with Butter, Lime and Cilantro

    Indian-Spiced Grilled Corn with Butter, Lime and Cilantro

    This phenomenally good corn recipe from Janene Holig of Hot Indian in Minneapolis calls for making your own garam masala, an Indian spice blend, from whole spices that you toast and grind. It’s not hard and produces the freshest spice flavor. But if you don’t have a spice grinder, you can make the blend using pre-ground spices—or just cheat and purchase garam masala (available at large supermarkets or specialty stores) and give it a quick toast to release the oils.

  • Paloma

    Paloma

    Mixology doesn't get any easier than this! Whip out this easy version of a classic Mexican cocktail for Cinco de Mayo, or just your average Taco Tuesday. The recipe comes from Kansas City's Mean Mule Distilling Co.

  • Jamaican Curried Mayo

    Jamaican Curried Mayo

    Slather this spicy mayonnaise on sweet corn or a chicken sandwich, or use it as a dip for grilled shrimp or fresh veggies. The recipe comes from Chef Camp in northern Minnesota.

  • Piri Piri (Portugese-Southern African Pepper Sauce)

    Piri Piri (Portugese-Southern African Pepper Sauce)

    Inspired by the flavors of South Africa, Angola and Mozambique, this smoky pepper sauce will punch up any grilled meat or vegetable and would even be good spooned over a brat. The recipe comes from Chef Camp in Minnesota.

  • Mushroom Gravy

    Mushroom Gravy

    Loaded with sage, this creamy gravy packs the same nostalgic flavor as the classic sausage version. It’s excellent spooned over warm split biscuits, or try it for dinner as a baked potato topper. The recipe comes from Nettie Colon, head cook at Chef Camp in Minnesota.

  • Sriracha Honey Butter

    Sriracha Honey Butter

    A natural with corn on the cob, this sweet and spicy butter sauce would be equally good spooned over cornbread, baked sweet potato or roasted Brussels sprouts. The recipe comes from Chef Camp in northern Minnesota.
