Recipes

Parmesan Roasted Zucchini
from Ina Garten’s book Cooking for Jeffrey

This recipe is really adaptable – it can feed two or feed a crowd. It can be hot or room temperature!

Serves 6 to 8
6 medium zucchini (2 1/2 to 3 pounds total)
Good olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon minced garlic (3 cloves)
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley leaves
2 tablespoons julienned fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup freshly grated Italian Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup panko (Japanese bread flakes)

Preheat the oven to 425°F.

Trim the stem end of the zucchini, cut them in half lengthwise, and scoop out a small channel of seeds with a regular teaspoon. Place the zucchini in one layer on a sheet pan, brush generously all over with olive oil, and turn the zucchini cut-side down. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and roast for 12 to 15 minutes, until just tender but still firm when tested with the tip of a small paring knife.

Meanwhile, make the bread crumbs. In a medium bowl, combine the garlic, parsley, basil, Parmesan, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Add the panko and 3 1/2 tablespoons of oil and mix well.

Turn the zucchini cut-side up and spoon a heaping tablespoon of the panko mixture evenly on each zucchini. Bake for another 8 to 10 minutes, until the panko is crispy. Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature.

Make ahead: Prepare the zucchini and the crumb mixture separately and refrigerate for up to a day. Roast before serving.

Sweet Potato Soup with Miso and Ginger

Try this with Rocky Glade’s Farm fresh ginger!

Serves 4 to 6, makes about 8 cups
For the soup:
Olive oil
1 large yellow onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced, about 1/4 cup
3 cups mashed sweet potato (from about 3 roasted sweet potatoes)
3 tablespoons light miso
4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1/2 cup whole milk
Salt and pepper

For the spiced yogurt drizzle:
1/2 cup whole milk yogurt
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
1/2 tablespoon maple syrup

Cook the onion and garlic in the olive oil over medium heat until soft and translucent. Raise the heat a little and add the ginger. Fry until the ginger is fragrant, but don’t let the onions and garlic brown. Add the sweet potato mash and miso, and continue cooking until the puree is warmed.

Add the broth to the pan and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer, then cover, turn the heat to low, and let the soup cook for about 5 minutes to bring the flavors together. Remove from heat and puree in a blender or with an immersion blender.

Return to the heat and warm, whisking in the milk. Salt and pepper to taste. If the soup is too thick, whisk in a little extra milk until you get the consistency you want.

Whisk together the yogurt, garam masala, and maple syrup. Drizzle over the sweet potato soup to garnish.

Hello!

We have some wonderful veggies for you this week – fall lettuces as well as some other interesting greens. Although the summer veggies may reign supreme in the hearts and minds of many, the diversity and selection this time of year is really impressive. And delicious! There is so much to choose from, and great stuff available for hearty meals, salads, soups, and baking!

This week, John is returning from a much needed family vacation to the Gulf. Tally will be off this week on a trip with her family. Please be extra nice to John as he will be all by his lonesome at delivery.

We will not be offering cheese this week – The Bloomy Rind will be back with us next week with their great selection.
