Cooler temperatures or not, I’m always in need of new slow cooker recipes. This one’s from newleafwellness.biz.
They say cool weather is coming. Right? Maybe then we’ll want to try this recipe by Asha Gomez of The Spice Table and Spice Road Chicken as demonstrated at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market.
Brandon Dienger of Restaurant Eugene demoed this recipe at last week’s Peachtree Road Farmers Market. Cut those peppers into wedges and then top with these herbed cheese.
He made it with Woodsman and Wife fromage blanc, but it would be just as delicious with Decimal Place chevre, or any soft cheese you prefer.
This idea works with any hot peppers. Sometimes more than one jalapeno is overwhelming for folks, so store these away and they’ll be good for use in the next few months. It’s a nice idea to store them in a salt water brine rather than in pickled (with vinegar) form. The idea came from Cook’s Country magazine.
I’m making two versions of slow cooker stuffed peppers tomorrow. One will be this recipe from newleafwellness.com, cutting up my fresh tomatoes instead of using canned tomatoes. But I’m also going to make a simpler version. I bought mild sausage from Charlotte at Freedom Farmers Market Saturday. I’m going to use that to stuff a few peppers as well. Nothing else, just the sausage. We’ll see which we like better.
As long as you’re heating up the grill for those pickles, go ahead and grill your peppers (still have one or two from last week?) for this adaptation of a recipe from Southern Living.
Finally, a pretty complicated recipe from Frank Stitt of Birmingham’s Highlands Bar and Grill, Bottega Cafe and Chez Fonfon. Delicious and worth the time it takes to make it. Maybe this could be a project for this weekend? Do you have some zucchini left from last week? Perfect. If not, maybe substitute another eggplant for the squash called for her.
I love gazpacho, especially when it’s as hot as it is right now. This recipe is from “Julia Reed’s South: Spirited Entertaining and High-Style Fun All Year Long.” There’s the gazpacho and then there’s a sherbet. You can make one or the other, or both – but it’s a very impressive combination if you can make the time to do the sherbet. Gazpacho goes together in minutes.
I wish I remembered where this came from. But it’s a great way to use the corn and peppers from today’s box. We don’t have field peas yet, but I’m betting we’ll see some soon. And this is delicious without field peas – so consider maybe dicing up a zucchini if you have one left from last week. It’s an easy recipe for a slow cooker.
