This unassuming farm-to-table chow spot is modeled after its namesake, Contigo Ranch in South Texas, and a definite must for reasonably priced ‘bar food’ (their words, not mine!) utilizing the freshest of seasonal ingredients, often unique to the Lone Star State.
The Very Popular Vegan Black Bean Cake from Boudro’s
Boudro’s Texas Bistro on the historic San Antonio River Walk…it doesn’t get any better than that! Chefs Ivan and Manny add yet another inspired effort to Boudro’s gluten-free menu — a Black Bean Griddle Cake plated on a beautiful basque piperade, alongside a garbanzo roasted tomato avocado relish, and accompanied by rosemary potatoes, fresh plantains, and garnished with crispy green beans. Holy moly!
Get a Load of this Cheesy Green Bean Casserole!
H-E-B Cooking Connections comes up HUGE with the perfect dish for Fall! The main ingredient, Better Than Good Bacon Jam, was the talk of Metro Cooking Houston this year…Paula Deen couldn’t get enough of the stuff!
