So a little more complicated, a recipe from the New York Times. Delicious and worth pulling together. I’m finding lots of dried shiitakes these days at local farmers markets – a great way for the farmer to add value to shiitakes he/she might not have been able to sell fresh.
If you prefer, use instant dashi for the whole kombu/bonita flake thing. All available at Sevananda or wherever you buy such things.
At our house, collards seldom show up undisguised. I make a fabulous collard tabouli and my husband has no idea he’s eating collards. He’s also not a fan of basil pestos, but this collard pesto from Southern Living is a delicious substitute.
In case you need a few ideas for using it up, the magazine suggested stirring some into hot mashed potatoes, into egg salad or just into mayonnaise and then using that as a sandwich spread. Perfect for a ham sandwich, I think.
I’m particularly fond of stuffing delicata squash and have adapted from a recipe in from a Freedom Farmers Market email newsletter. No idea who to credit for the recipe. Try these with your mustard greens or with something milder you pick up at a local farmers market.
A recipe that tastes more decadent than it really is. And the slow cooker means you don’t have to pay attention while it cooks. Even people who say they don’t like greens like this dish. I have no idea where it came from.
Scott Serpas of Inman Park’s Serpas True Food demonstrated this recipe at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market as well. It’s going to use up your mustard greens and some of your okra. Truly, this dish goes together in about 10 minutes.
Yes, this one is a little complicated, but worth it. The smell of that pork shoulder roasting is an incredibly fragrant way to perfume your house on a cool weekend afternoon. Serve it as a sandwich as given here, or skip the rolls and cheese and plate it up for dinner. Pick up the biggest pork shoulder you can find at one of Riverview’s many farmers market booths this week.
