Mystery Box Madness: February 2015!

Each month we choose a variety of ten mystery box ingredients from which to cook.  It's up to you to select at least three of those ingredients and chose a recipe featuring those ingredients from one of our eleven IHCC chefs We love to see which chef you chose to cook with, which ingredients you select, and the reason (or story) behind the recipe you share! Are you ready for February's challenge?

Here are your February 2015 MBM Ingredients:

Freekah or Bulgur Wheat
Sausage (any kind)
Basil (fresh, dry, any kind)

Your dish should contain at least three of these mystery ingredients, and you get to choose any dish from our current guest chef, Diana Henry, or any one of our previous ten IHCC chefs:

Nigella Lawson
  Mark Bittman
 Giada de Laurentiis
  Jamie Oliver  
Tessa Kiros
Rick Bayless  
Madjur Jaffrey
Yotam Ottolenghi
 Donna Hay
 Nigel Slater

Which mystery ingredients and chef are calling out to you?

If you are up for the challenge, make and post your dish by Sunday, February 15th.  Please remember to link a thumbnail image and leave a comment after you link so that we don't miss out on your dish.

LOVED the Ottolenghi freekeh dish I adapted to be vegetarian and bonus--it included 3 mystery ingredients in the base dish and two more in the suggested toppings.
