Red Cabbage Slaw with Asian Vinaigrette

Lucy Senesac

INGREDIENTS:

3 Red hakurei turnips
1-2 Kohlrabi
4-5 large french radishes
1 head red cabbage
2-3 Beets
1 apple
3 tablespoons asian vinaigrette
salt and pepper to taste
bunch of chopped herbs (parsley or cilantro would go well)

INSTRUCTIONS:

Using a mandolin or a sharp chef's knife, julienne your peeled vegetables unto very thin matchsticks. If you are using a knife, simply slice the bulbous vegetables into thin rounds and then sliver them into matchsticks as well. With the cabbage, slice very thin pieces and then chop those again to stay similar size as the other vegetables. Toss all the vegetables together and add salt, pepper, herbs and dressing. Serve as a side or a lunch with some fish on top!

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!

Refrigerator Pickles

Lucy Senesac

INGREDIENTS:

4 cucumbers (any variety works)
1 ½ - 2 onions
1 clove garlic
1 inch ginger
1 tablespoon coriander seed
1 tablespoon mustard ceed
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 tablespoon peppercorns
1 tabespoon kosher salt
1 cup cider vinegar
1 cup rice vinegar
¾ cup sugar sugar

INSTRUCTIONS:

Thinly slice cucumbers and onions in the round, or cut them however thick you like your pickles. Slice the garlic and ginger the same way, into thinly shaved slices. Add these ingredients to a large mason jar (or a few). Put the rest of the ingredients in a saucepan, and boil for one minute. Pour over mixture in jars and refrigerate for up to a month! This is a great way to use up those cucumbers but also have them around for salads or a side when you want them ! (Feel free to experiment with the pickling spices and different vinegars, as long as your total is about the same)

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.

Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, salt and pepper and add to the vegetables. Mix in the bulgar and refrigerate until serving time.

Ingredients:

6 large cucumbers, peeled if they are the thicker skin variety
2 tablespoon finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon finely chopped dill
2 tablespoon finely chopped mint
1 avocado
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup goat’s milk yogurt (we sell Catapano’s at the stand) or greek yogurt
2 tablespoons olive oil
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon champagne vinegar (or rice vinegar)

Instructions:

Garlic Scape & Sugar Snap Stir-Fry

Lucy Senesac

Serves 4
Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

2 lbs sugar snap peas
1-2 bunches of garlic scapes
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
Sang Lee stir-fry sauce
salt, pepper, and herbs to taste

Directions:

First, prepare your vegetables by popping off the ends of the snap peas or trimming them. With the garlic scapes, cut off the top from the budding part upwards. Cut the scapes into 2 inch pieces. At this point, you can either blanch the scapes for a few minutes in boiling water then submerge in cold water, or leave them as is (and just cook a little longer before the snap peas).

Lightly coat the wok (or pan) with the olive oil and let it heat for a minute. Add the scapes, toss to coat with oil, and cook for about 5 minutes before adding the snap peas. Cook for 1 minute before adding the butter. Cook for 1-2 minutes longer and finish with a drizzle of stir-fry sauce. Serve over penne, rice, quinoa, or just as a delicious vegetable side!

Strawberry Rhubarb Demi-Glaze (over Salmon)

Lucy Senesac

Ingredients:

2lbs Salmon filets, cut into 4 pieces
1 egg
Flour
1 quart strawberries, hulled and cut in half
1 lb rhubarb stalks, cleaned and diced
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup water
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup demi glaze or reduced stock (available in specialty markets but still good without it)
1 cup sliced raw almonds

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Season the salmon with salt and pepper. With what was the skin side up, dip the other side of the fish in the flour, then in the egg, then press firmly on the plate of slivered almonds so that the entire surface is coated with the nuts.

Place an oven-proof skillet on medium heat and add the olive oil. Place the salmon almond crust side down in the pan and saute for 2-3 minutes until the almonds begin to get a light golden brown color (be careful not to burn the nuts!). Flip the salmon filets over so the almond crust side is up and roast in the preheated oven for 7-8 minutes, or until done to your liking.

While the salmon is cooking, make the sauce by adding the sliced fresh strawberries, water, demi-glaze, and lemon to a saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for 3 minutes. Remove and add to a blender. Carefully puree the mixture. Strain back into the saucepan to remove the small seeds, and reduce over medium heat until slightly thickened (this may not be necessary if the sauce is already at a desirable thickness.

Turn off the heat. Taste the sauce and season with a pinch of salt. Stir in the diced strawberries. Ladle the sauce on to a warm plate and place the fish over the top. Pair with some risotto!
