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.
This simple recipe originated with the folks at Whole Foods.
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.
A nice take on kale salad. Adapted from a recipe in Saveur magazine.
From Cook’s Country magazine. Use your kale and mustard greens for this one from this week’s box – but it works with any greens you like.
Pine Street Market entered this dish in the 2012 Market Mashup at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market. It’s sort of fun that it doesn’t include any of their own ingredients.
This recipe from Moore Farms and Friends showed up in my inbox, just as I was thinking, “We need lots of squash and onion recipes!” It has the bonus of using a little cabbage as well. And some kale or Swiss chard.
For years I was a tabbouleh purist. I grew up with a Syrian mom, we ate tabouli every week. And it was four ingredients – chopped parsley, chopped tomatoes, sliced green onions and softened bulgur – dressed with salt, pepper, olive oil and lemon juice. That was it.
But, I’ve come to appreciate tabouli as a way to enjoy all kinds of greens. And when faced with a huge mound of beautiful greens as in this week’s box, I’m glad to have a way to reduce some of that volume in a delicious way.
This recipe is adapted from one on the Food52 blog. No parsley? No cucumber? Don’t let that stop you. They used quinoa – I’d still just make it with softened bulgur (cracked wheat). Bulgur requires no cooking – much friendlier in the kitchen on these steamy days.
