Sauteed cabbage with Turnips & Kohlrabi

Lucy Senesac

INGREDIENTS:

  • ½ Cone Cabbage, thinly sliced
  • ½ Napa Cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 4 pce garlic, minced
  • 1 bunch scallions, sliced
  • 2 bulbs kohlrabi, peeled and sliced into ½ inch thick matchsticks
  • 1 small bunch white turnips, cut same as kohlrabi
  • ½ lb pasta
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 tbsp butter

INSTRUCTIONS:

Wash, peel, and slice all of the vegetables that need it. Boil water for your pasta and cook at the same time as you are sautéing the vegetables (If you are using linguini, cut in half before you put in the pot). In a sauté pan over medium heat, add half the butter and garlic. Let sizzle for a minute and then add the kohlrabi and turnips. Sauté for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are soft but not completely mushy. Then add the cabbage, scallions and sauté for another 5 minutes. Finish it off with lots of pepper and a little salt. Drain the past and add the remaining butter. Mix with the cabbage dish and serve!

Stir-Frying 101

Lucy Senesac

Here is the asian method that really requires using a gas stove and a wok. The temperature of the pan and the oil are very important in insuring that the vegetables don’t just steam. 

  • heat vegetable oil over high heat (or olive oil over med-high heat). Slice ginger into slivers and brown it in the oil for a few minutes. Then add the smashed and minced garlic. 
  • If you are using meat, add and cook until ¾ cooked, then remove the meat leaving the juices, and set aside. Add the thickest/most dense vegetables next and additional oil if necessary (cabbage, roots, etc) and half the onions.
  • Then add all other vegetables besides the green leafy tops or baby greens. Toss a few times and cook for a few minutes.
  • Then add the rest of the onions and  leafy greens. Toss twice until greens are melted. Drizzle stir-fry sauce and add meat back to the wok, toss two more times.
  • Turn off the heat, drizzle sesame oil and scallions/chopped herbs. Place the stir-fry immediately on a platter so that the veggies don’t overcook in the hot pan.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.

I hope that you all enjoy exploring and experimenting with the different vegetables in your oven and wok. I hope it inspires you to try some new combinations!

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.

Stuffed Bell Peppers

Lucy Senesac

INGREDIENTS:

2-3 bell peppers
4-5 medium sized potatoes, peeled and thinly diced
3 small asian eggplant, unpeeled and thinly diced
3 summer squash, thinly diced
½ leek
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons mixed herbs, finely chopped
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
½ jalapeno pepper
salt and pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat oven to 375. Cut the peppers in half from the top stem and clean out the inside of seeds, etc. Place them in a foiled baking dish with a thin coat of oil.

Chop the vegetables very small and try to make them all similar in size so that the stuffing blends well and cooks evenly. With the eggplant, add 1 tsp kosher salt and let sit in a strainer for 10 minutes. Rinse and pat dry with a towel before cooking. Over med-high head, add the remaining oil and heat for a minute. Add the garlic and leek and sauté for a minute or two before adding the potatoes. Wait a few minutes and then add the remaining vegetables, stirring frequently until the vegetables are soft but not mushy. Turn the heat off and add the herbs, breadcrumbs, ¼ cup parmesan cheese, and salt/pepper to taste. Stuff the peppers with the mixture and put in the oven for about 25-30 minutes. A few minutes before they are done, add some parmesan cheese to the top. Enjoy!

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!

Baba Ghanouj

Lucy Senesac

INGREDIENTS:

  • 12 long asian eggplants (on the small side), halved lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ cup  tahini
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 bunch parsley (3/4 cup packed) coarsely chopped
  • 5 cloves roasted garlic
  • 1 fresh clove garlic, minced (less if you prefer, 1 clove is strong!) 

INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat oven to 375°F. Generously oil rimmed baking sheet and place eggplant halves, cut side down, on sheet. Roast for about 45 minutes or until eggplant is soft and set aside to cool for 10-20 minutes. Using a spoon, scoop out the pulp from the eggplant into a food processor/blender. Add 1/4 cup oil, tahini, lemon juice, parsley and garlic; process until almost smooth.

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!

Heirloom Tomato Bruscetta

Lucy Senesac

INGREDIENTS:

5-6 heirloom tomatoes, different colors
1 bunch basil, finely chopped
2 bell peppers, finely chopped
½ cup olives, cut in half
1 teaspoon kosher salt

½ sweet white/purple onion, diced
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 oz goat cheese
sliced baguette
½ clove garlic (for rubbing on toast)

INSTRUCTIONS:

Cut the baguette into thin ½ inch slices. Toast until lightly browned and rub with a garlic clove to give the bread a little flavor. Then spread a thin layer of goat cheese on each slice. Top with tomato mixture and serve as an appetizer or a side!
