One more egg recipe. I don’t remember where this recipe came from, but I’m guessing from the “40 turns from a black pepper mill” that the source could well have been Cook’s Illustrated with it’s oh-so-precise instructions.
One more broccoli idea, this one from years and years ago in Southern Living. It looks like a lot of ingredients but chances are good you have most of them in your pantry. You could throw in some of those green onions, or chop up some kale and add that.
That head of broccoli is so sweet. Don’t cook it! Serve it raw in something like this salad.
Maybe you want to munch on something mindlessly. Try this recipe. The bronzing on today’s broccoli makes me think perhaps the farm is getting a bit of frost in those cold mornings that only dip to the 40s here in town. It’s a recipe from Southern Living. Wouldn’t those sweet carrots make delicious dippers? And those radishes? And no cooking! If you’ve got all the components on hand, it’s done in 10 minutes. And of course, you can substitute any nut you like for those cashews.
I hesitate to give you a recipe for broccoli since you’re probably munching on fresh raw broccoli right now. But if not, try this recipe from David Gross of Cook Hall, prepared at a demo at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market. Fresh local ginger is available from many farmers and is absolutely amazing. I love this recipe because I’m crazy about the sweet-hot combination of pepper jelly.
This recipe came from the chefs at JCT Kitchen and was a demo at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market. I made an easy knock-off one night – cooking a whole head of cauliflower until it broke down, then adding 4 cups of cooked brown rice (which I had languishing in the refrigerator), some wine, chicken stock and garlic, and then folding in Parmesan after everything was warmed up. Easy and delicious. Their version will take a little more time, but the risotto effect is worth the trouble. If you’re not familiar with Carolina gold rice, it’s grown in South Carolina and available at specialty markets. Arborio or other risotto rice will work fine.
The trick to cooking bok choy is understanding that the thick stems need different treatment from the thin leaves. This recipe takes all that into account.
Tender sweet broccoli should be an easy sell, but if there are reluctant broccoli eaters at your house, try adding them to that perennial favorite – homefries. Use all olive oil if you prefer. Or use the onions and garlic scapes from the box if you wish. This recipe could accommodate most anything. What doesn’t go with potatoes?
