Meatless Monday: Chocolate For Dinner

Bobby Flay’s Poached Eggs in Mole Sauce With Creamy Green Rice

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow but since February is basically a month-long excuse to eat a whole bunch of chocolate, don’t wait till tomorrow to indulge. If you haven’t already been eating chocolate daily, start today, and have some for dinner. Now, don’t go all crazy and eat cake for dinner; there are plenty of savory recipes that call for cocoa, like Chocolate Pasta and mole sauce.

Mole is a dark, rich, traditional Mexican sauce (mole means “concoction” in the Aztec dialect Nahuatl); it varies in color and flavor based on the recipe or what the cook has in their kitchen, but it’s generally made with onion, garlic, chilies, ground seeds (like sesame or pepian) and a bit of bitter chocolate. The chocolate adds depth to the sauce without over sweetness, since unsweetened or Mexican chocolate is used. Mole sauce is usually served with chicken, so you won’t find too many vegetarian mole dishes at Mexican restaurants. But just like tomato sauce isn’t just for meatballs, mole isn’t just for chicken. Make it at home and serve it over nachos, slathered on top of spinach or black bean enchiladas, or with poached eggs and creamy rice, like in Bobby Flay’s Poached Eggs in Mole With Creamy Green Rice. Bobby serves his meatless mole dish for brunch in an episode of Brunch@Bobby’s dedicated to chocolate, but this savory dish would make a great dinner, as well.
