Sweet Potato Latkes

Lucy Senesac

INGREDIENTS:

2 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and coarsely grated
6 scallions, finely chopped
1 bunch cilantro, finely chopped
2-3 carrots, finely grated
1 cup all-purpose flour
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup vegetable oil
1 inch finely diced ginger
a pinch of cinnamon (to taste)

INSTRUCTIONS:

Begin by peeling the sweet potato(s) and cutting them up into manageable pieces. I used a food processor with the grating attachment to quickly grate the potatoes and carrots. If you don't have one, you can just use a cheese grater. Combine the grated veggies and add the cilantro, scallions, flour, eggs, ginger, salt, pepper, and cinnamon. Mix together until you get a sticky but not glue-ey consistency. You may have to adjust the flour/egg quantities based on this and how big your eggs are.

Heat oil in a deep 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches of 4, spoon 1/8 cup potato mixture per latke into oil and flatten to 3-inch diameter with a slotted spatula. Reduce heat to moderate and cook until golden, about 2 minutes on each side. Transfer latkes with spatula to paper towels to drain. Serve with homemade apple sauce!

Sweet Potato & Carrot Gnocchi

Lucy Senesac

INGREDIENTS:

2-3 med sweet potatoes
3-4 carrots
10 oz Ricotta, drained in a sieve for 2 hrs
½ tsp Nutmeg
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 cup parmesan cheese
2 1/2 cup flour (depends on how sticky dough is)
2 tsp salt

INSTRUCTIONS:

Line large baking sheet with parchment paper. Place sweet potatoes on plate; microwave on high until tender, about 5 minutes per side. Cut in half and cool. Scrape the sweet potato flesh into medium bowl and mash. Peel and cut carrots in half. Boil them in salted water for about 10-15 minutes or until soft and tender when pricked with a fork. Mash and add to sweet potato mixture. Add ricotta cheese and blend well. Add Parmesan cheese, brown sugar, salt, and nutmeg; mash to blend. Mix in flour, about 1/2 cup at a time, until soft dough forms.

Turn dough out onto floured surface; divide into 6 equal pieces. Rolling between palms and floured work surface, form each piece into 20-inch-long rope (about 1 inch in diameter), sprinkling with flour as needed if sticky. Cut each rope into 20 pieces. Roll each piece over tines of fork to indent. Transfer to baking sheet.

Bring large pot of water to boil; add 2 tablespoons salt and return to boil. Working in batches, boil gnocchi until tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer gnocchi to clean rimmed baking sheet. Cool completely and serve with brown butter or pesto (i used a broccoli pesto).

Roasting 101

Lucy Senesac

Some tips:

  • Cut your vegetables all about the same size so that they cook evenly and you don’t have to take some out before others.
  • Some veggies take different amounts of time to roast. Potatoes tend to need the longest so put them in first, then add your softer veggies 10 -20 minutes later. Onions always go last as they only need about 10 minutes. 
  • Make sure you use enough oil to coat the veggies and a bit extra so that they don’t stick to the pan as they absorb it.
  • Add sea salt and pepper before roasting for more flavor
  • Arrange the vegetables in a single layer in the roasting dish (glass pyrex or regular cooking sheet/pan) so that they become crispy around the edges and not mushy
  • Feel free to throw a few unpeeled garlic cloves in there if you are a garlic lover like me – they sweeten up and make a subtler choice than raw/sautéed garlic
  • Roast at a high enough temperature – 375 - 425 degrees is usually sufficient
  • Make sure to stir the veggies a few times as they are cooking so they don’t stick.
  • When roasting beets, simply make a tin foil pouch for them and place it on a pan in the oven (same temp – 425) for 40 minutes to an hour. Beets tend to stain all other vegetables they roast with and since they are more dense they need the contained moisture of the pouch to help cook them and stay moist without drying out.
  • After you roast the vegetables, you can also puree them and create a soup like butternut squash soup, sweet potato ginger soup, or even a  cold salad with the leftover roasted veggies and a simple vinaigrette.

Late Summer Vegetable Soup

Lucy Senesac

INGREDIENTS:

5 carrots, cut into chunks
2 lbs mixed potatoes, cubed
2 small heads/1 large head broccoli (and stem)
½ lb snap beans
½ pint cherry tomatoes, halved
2 bell peppers, cut into large chunks
3 pc garlic, minced
1 bunch scallions
1 bunch parsley
handful mixed herbs
5 cups vegetable stock (depending on how liquid you want it)
3 tbsp butter
2 cups cooked grain (Israeli couscous, bulgar, barley, quinoa)
¼ cup tomato paste

INSTRUCTIONS:

Cut up the vegetables into chuck sizes for the most part. In a large soup pot or dutch oven over med-high heat, melt the butter and add the garlic. Once the garlic becomes fragrant, add the potatoes and stir for a few minutes, then add a half cup of the broth. After the potatoes have cooked about 5-10 minutes on their own, add the carrots, scallions, beans, peppers, and broccoli. Also add enough broth to cover the vegetables along with the tomato paste and let simmer for another 10 minutes. Now add the herbs, parsley, tomatoes, and turn the heat to medium and let simmer for another 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft enough to eat. Turn the heat off and let sit for at least an hour. Have some for dinner and then freeze the rest!

Sauteed Fingerling Potatoes, Garlic & Parsley

Lucy Senesac

INGREDIENTS:

2 lbs fingerling potatoes, slice on an angle ¼ inch thick
5 carrots, cut the same as potatoes
1 bunch parsley, coarsely chopped
5 cloves garlic, finely minced
4 scallions or 2 leeks, finely chopped
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
freshly ground pepper
kosher salt to taste
3 tablespoons butter
a few sprigs of rosemary, finely chopped

INSTRUCTIONS:

To begin, finely dice the garlic cloves and set aside. Wash the potatoes and carrots before slicing, but don’t peel those potatoes! That is the beauty of fingerlings… Slice the tomatoes in half and chop up the scallions or leeks and parsley.

In a medium sized cast iron skillet (or sauté pan) heat the butter over med-high heat for a minute and add 4 cloves of the garlic (and leeks if you have them). Once the garlic becomes fragrant, add the potatoes and begin stirring. Add some parsley and continue stirring over med-high heat for another minute or two. Then, add the chicken broth and cover for 2 minutes. Remove cover and let the liquid dissipate before adding the carrots, (scallions if you have them), and salt/pepper. Keep stirring over med heat for another 10-15 minutes or until the vegetables and potatoes are almost done but still a little firm. Then add the cherry tomatoes, remaining parsley, rosemary, 1 tablespoon butter, and the remaining clove of minced garlic. Stir for another minute or two until tomatoes soften and then remove from heat and serve. If you don’t have carrots, replace then with summer squash or string beans! Enjoy!

Asian Nappa Cabbage Slaw

Lucy Senesac

INGREDIENTS:

¼ cup rice vinegar (not seasoned)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon grated peeled ginger
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon zest
1 tablespoon orange juice, 1 tablespoon zest
1 fresh chile, finely chopped, with seeds
1 head Napa cabbage (1 1/2 pounds), cored and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch slices
1 bunch scallions, sliced (4-5)
1/2 cup coarsely chopped cilantro or parsley
5 grated carrots
1 kohlrabi bulb, peeled and grated
toasted sesame seeds

INSTRUCTIONS:

For the dressing, whisk together the first 8 ingredients in a large bowl until the dressing emulsifies.

Wash your napa cabbage head thoroughly after you peal away the leaves. Bunch together and dice as thinly as you can. Give the diced cabbage a few chops to make the bites smaller. Add to the large bowl with dressing. Grate your carrots and peeled kohlrabi on a cheese grater or some other grater and dice your scallions. Add it all to the bowl. Chop up the cilantro (or parsley) and along with the sesame seeds, add to the bowl. Toss and add salt and pepper to taste.

Late Spring Root Roast

Lucy Senesac

Time : 1 hr

Ingredients:

5 medium sized parsnips
1 bunch carrots (about 10 small carrots)
1 large bunch asparagus (15-20 spears)
1 bunch  garlic scapes (about 6-10)
1 bunch scallions (6-7) reserve green ends for garnish after roasting
1 bunch cilantro or parsley
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic ginger glaze (honey or agave nectar will work fine)
½ cup chicken or vegetable broth
touch of balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons sea or kosher salt
Pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut ends off parsnips and peel. Then cut into small 1 ½ to 2-inch matchsticks. The best way to do this is to cut the parsnip in half (crosswise) and then continue to cut each half lengthwise into halves, quarters, etc. Set aside in roasting pan by themselves (to roast longer than other vegetables). Give the asparagus a rinse and then cut off the woody ends and discard. Cut into the same size pieces as the parsnips, on a diagonal 2 or 3 at a time. Set aside in a separate bowl temporarily.

Cut the green ends off of the carrots along with the     thin root at the other end. I don’t bother peeling carrots if they are very fresh; maybe just give a scrub to remove the root hairs. Similar to the parsnips, cut the carrots in half and then thinly into matchsticks. Toss with the Asparagus. Slice the garlic scapes in small matchsticks from top to bottom; you can do this in a bunch if you like to save time. Dice the white/light green hardier ends of the scallions in the same way as well. Mix both in with the roots. Discard stems and finely chop cilantro leaves and scallion greens. Set aside.

Add half the oil and all of the broth to the parsnips and roast by themselves, covered in foil, for 10 minutes. Then add the rest of the vegetables, the remaining oil, balsamic glaze or honey, balsamic vinegar, sea salt, and pepper/spices to taste. Roast for 20-25 minutes uncovered until the vegetables get soft yet still have a crunch to them.

Move vegetables to a serving dish and toss with the scallions, cilantro and whatever else you fancy to finish it off. This makes a delicious main dish over pasta/quinoa/brown rice or a side dish with fish or meat when you are craving a hardier meal after all those spring salads! A temporary farewell to our dear roots.
