Can’t wait to try this recipe from “New Feast” by Lucy and Greg Malouf.
No idea where this came from – but I love the combination of sweet, spicy and tart. And like most stews, it’s better on the second and third days.
I’ve been using my turnips in soups this month. Try this one from Prevention magazine. Put in as many turnips and carrots as you like.
One more idea for fermented vegetables. This is adapted from a recipe in Saveur magazine. It’s sort of like a mild kimchi – a nice compromise. The sterilized container part is important. You don’t want any funky bacteria messing up your sauerkraut.
Kimchi is traditionally made with Napa cabbage, and is a great way to use daikon radishes. If you only have “regular” cabbage – just substitute it for the Napa in the recipe.
The Korean chili powder is pretty essential. You can find it at the Buford Highway Farmers Market, but also at grocers that specialize in Korean foods.
The recipe comes from “Tart and Sweet” by Kelly Geary and Jessie Knadler. Add some sliced mustard greens if you like, that’s also a traditional addition.
If you try this recipe, it will make a small dent in a big bunch of collards. It’s from Becky Striepe of Glue and Glitter (https://www.glueandglitter.com/). And of course, you can always increase the quantities.
A gorgeous bunch of carrots is such a gift!
Now – don’t waste those greens. This soup is delicious and the greens are a great addition. You can use the remaining greens to make pesto, which would be nice as a garnish for this soup.
In some years we’ve received small jars of sorghum in our boxes. This recipe works with sorghum, or honey, or agave, or maple syrup, or any other sweetener you prefer. Are you buying the gorgeous fresh ginger now available at every local farmers market? If not, what are you waiting for? this recipe was in Bon Appetit ages ago.
From Jarrett Stieber as demonstrated at Freedom Farmers Market, with all his notes. A nice first course for a bigger meal, or a delicious meal all of itself. And easy.
This recipe from Mark Bittman’s “VB6” (Vegan Before 6) book. Here’s what he says about it:
“Here, you concentrate the sweetness of carrots by slow-roasting them until they’re essentially dehydrated. The resulting “candy” is slightly chewy and slightly crisp—the perfect healthy snack to eat alone, or as a vehicle for dips.
You can use this technique on virtually any vegetable, alone or in combination. Thinly sliced fennel bulbs, beets, parsnips, celery root, and turnips all work great, as will cauliflower or broccoli florets. All will take somewhere between 2½ and 3 hours, depending on the cut and how dry the vegetables were to begin with. If you want something crunchy and salty, try the variation. If you have the pans and oven space, make at least a double batch, using an assortment of vegetables. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.”
