By this time of year, you might be ready to cook your tomatoes. Try this simple recipe from Cook’s Country magazine.
This week I’m feeling like having breakfast for dinner. Here are two ideas. The original inspiration? Lost in the mists of time.
This recipe was submitted by CSA subscriber Silvia Medrano-Edelstein, the chef instructor and founder of Word of Mouth Cooking Club specializing in kid’s gourmet meal-kit prepping camps and specialty events like kiddie mocktails and gingerbread houses. Her recipes don’t include exact measurements, but you can figure it out.
Of course you can grill the eggplant if you’ve got the grill going.
I went a little crazy at the farmers markets this weekend and came home with about five different kinds of cherry tomatoes. I just finished roasting up a pan. Some I’m eating on toast, but the rest will be used in this recipe. It’s from “Seriously Simple: Easy Recipes for Creative Cooks” by Diane Rossen Worthington.
From Martha Stewart – love this combination. If you don’t want to buy halloumi (which is a very cool cheese if you’re not familiar with it) consider some feta. Maybe from Decimal Place? You could just do the feta as it comes from the container, or give it a little saute as suggested here. It’s fun if you haven’t tried “sauteed cheese” before.
From Saveur magazine, you can use up all those tomatoes you’re accumulating. (Maybe you’re like me and went crazy at local farmers markets this weekend. I came home with a bushel basket’s worth of tomatoes from an organic farmer who sells at the Jonesboro Farmers Market.) It’s from chef Sara Hauman of Huxley restaurant in San Francisco. Yes, you’ll heat up your kitchen, but it sure will smell delicious.
Always remember simple is delicious. This recipe is adapted from one on food52.com. I could eat it for three meals a day.
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.
