Ingredients Olive oil 1 tbsp butter Greens from 1-2 bunches of radishes, carefully cleaned 2-3 radishes, thinly sliced 2 spring onions, white and light green parts,...
Zinfandel-Braised Asparagus with Green Garlic Zinfandel-Braised Asparagus with Green Garlic By Cook Food. Mostly Plants. 03/19/14 04:28 Spring has crept into California, and it surely can't be that far behind in other parts of the country. Which means it's the season, or very nearly almost the season, for green garlic and asparagus. Snatch them up as soon as you see them, pour yourself...
Sauteed Beet Greens Sauteed Beet Greens By Cook Food. Mostly Plants. 10/25/13 19:56 Beet greens are like chard, only denser in texture—a bit less watery, and delicately flavored. Cut the tops off the next time you indulge in these, and save the greens for this recipe. Ingredients Olive oil 1 small shallot, chopped 1 clove garlic, chopped...
Wild Rice with Leeks and Dandelion Greens Wild Rice with Leeks and Dandelion Greens By Cook Food. Mostly Plants. 07/18/13 03:34 Found at Whole Foods: Local eggs from pastured hens at Campo Lindo Farms (for about half the price of the local pastured eggs we get in California...score another one for Kansas)* Found at Natural Grocers: More leeks, beautiful local dandelion greens A...
Roasted Butternut Orzo with Walnuts and Garlicky Greens Roasted Butternut Orzo with Walnuts and Garlicky Greens By Cook Food. Mostly Plants. 12/31/11 23:39 Armed with whole grain orzo, anything is possible. Especially if you happen to have a chunk of leftover roasted butternut squash idling away on the top shelf of your refrigerator. (If you're looking for a feasible and delicious New Years resolution, I highly...
Mixed Greens with Garlic and Toasted Walnuts Mixed Greens with Garlic and Toasted Walnuts By Cook Food. Mostly Plants. 11/13/11 19:50 This turns out to be a perfect side dish for pumpkin soup. Or just about anything else, for that matter. Make it when you have an assortment of dark leafy greens on hand and want something fall-like and delicious and quick to dress up the side of your plate....
Warmed Tomatoes and Basil over Garlicky Greens Warmed Tomatoes and Basil over Garlicky Greens By Cook Food. Mostly Plants. 09/25/11 17:54 This was a let's-cook-whatever's-in-the-fridge dish, and yet the flavors turned out to be perfectly balanced and wonderfully complex. You could use just regular sweet basil if you didn't have both kinds (and maybe try adding just a bit more sherry vinegar...
Sauteed Green Beans with Balsamic Reduction Sauteed Green Beans with Balsamic Reduction By Cook Food. Mostly Plants. 08/13/11 21:39 I may have cast some texture-related aspersions in the general direction of green beans awhile back, and feel compelled to clarify. Ahem. I have always loved green beans (since at least three or four days ago). Their texture is not squeaky (when made as...
Sauteed Green Beans with Almonds Sauteed Green Beans with Almonds By Cook Food. Mostly Plants. 07/08/11 22:49 The trouble with green beans, I've decided, is all about texture. They insist on being too mealy, or too dry, or too rubbery and squeaky when steamed, or too shriveled when forgotten in a pan of roasted vegetables under the asparagus (although I admit the...
Eggs on Toast with Aztec Spinach and Green Coriander Eggs on Toast with Aztec Spinach and Green Coriander By Cook Food. Mostly Plants. 07/03/11 22:19 I'm in love with June produce. (True, some people might think of today as July, but I prefer June 33rd. Anything to maintain the illusion that my grant is due next month.) First, there's the garlic. Soft-skinned, totally fresh, balanced between the wimpy...
Wilted Greens Salad with Tuna Wilted Greens Salad with Tuna By Cook Food. Mostly Plants. 06/19/11 21:23 The problem with brunch -- and I must admit I feel slightly sacrilegious uttering those words, so allow me to rephrase -- one tiny, insignificant, easily airbrushed imperfection on the face of the deeply beloved meal of brunch (ah, much better) is that...
Black Beans and Rice with Greens and Oregano Black Beans and Rice with Greens and Oregano By Cook Food. Mostly Plants. 06/13/11 18:21 The combination of rice and beans and whatever greens we have on hand tends to be my go-to meal when I haven't thought ahead about dinner and just want something straightforward and easy that doesn't require going to the store. Because it's the Backup Plan...
Wild Rice and Greens Wild Rice and Greens By Cook Food. Mostly Plants. 06/04/11 19:06 This is one of those random, I-don't-want-to-go-to-the-store dishes that's easy, flexible, and makes you wonder why you ever bother making anything complicated if throwing together random things from the cupboard can taste so good. Ingredients Olive oil...
Mostly Plants in a Hurry: Egg Sandwich with Leafy Greens Mostly Plants in a Hurry: Egg Sandwich with Leafy Greens By Cook Food. Mostly Plants. 05/31/11 21:47 The basic idea here is to take something oniony, something green, and a bit of a fresh herb and let them play nicely in a pan together with a couple of eggs. Dinner in ten minutes, but all leafy and fresh and flavorful. (Unlike the TV dinners that I catch...
Peppery Greens with Strawberries Peppery Greens with Strawberries By Cook Food. Mostly Plants. 05/31/11 18:58 The sweetness of ripe strawberries offsets the spiciness of baby mustard greens and arugula in this quick and easy side salad. Ingredients Couple handfuls baby red mustard greens Couple handfuls baby arugula Olive oil Sherry vinegar Handful ripe strawberries,...
Roasted Squash and Fava Green Risotto with Lemon Roasted Squash and Fava Green Risotto with Lemon By Cook Food. Mostly Plants. 04/14/11 18:34 This was kind of like having pumpkin pie and lemon bars for dinner. The Sibley Squash from our CSA box this week was particularly amazing, but I think the recipe would still be very good with a plain old butternut squash instead. After halving lengthwise...
Easy Chickpeas and Greens Easy Chickpeas and Greens By Cook Food. Mostly Plants. 03/16/11 11:23 Simple but totally delicious. Use any green or mix of greens that's fairly mild but still has a hint of spice -- the red frisee mustard from our CSA box worked perfectly, or you could substitute half baby arugula and half baby spinach. If you use big greens...
