    • Dalmatian Lenten Cabbage Soup - Broeta de Verza de Magro

      This meatless soup was the traditional beginning of Dalmatian Vigil meals, especially Christmas Eve, when the chill of the Bora (a strong wind from the east) gives cabbage added bite. It calls for fish broth, which the cook would have had on hand because boiled fish is one of the standard second courses of a Vigil meal.

      Prep Time: 30 minutes
      Cook Time: 45 minutes

      Ingredients:

      • Savoy cabbage (amounts given below)
      • Potatoes
      • One onion
      • Fish broth (from boiling a fish, or canned)
      • Garlic
      • A bay leaf
      • Bread
      • Salt and pepper

      Preparation:

      Dice into half-inch (1-cm) cubes a head of Savoy cabbage, two peeled potatoes, and an onion.

      Simmer the vegetables until tender in the broth from boiling the fish (strain it first), adding a minced clove of garlic, a bay leaf, and salt and pepper to taste to the pot.

      While the soup is cooking, toast several slices of bread. Line your soup bowls with them, ladle the soup over it, and serve.

      Serves 4

    • Fennel & Vegetable Stir Fry with Nut Rice

      Directions:

      Tofu can be fried (do before anything else) or tossed into stir fry with out previous cooking. I've also made this many times with no tofu and it is still good. Coarsely chop onion and mince garlic. Slice bok choy stocks into bite size pieces, coarsely chop green tops. Slice and/or chop the rest of the veggies any way you prefer.

      Heat 1 1/2 - 2 tablespoons oil in large skillet or wok. Add 1 teaspoon fennel seed until is begins to sizzle. Add onion and sauté for 2-3 minutes, add garlic toss a few times with spoon.

      Begin cooking vegetables from hardest to softest: bok choy stocks (save green tops for later) for 1 minute. Add carrot and cook for 1 minute... red pepper 1 minute... broccoli 1 minute, etc... Repeat with all the vegetables except for bok choy greens (they will go in later with the tofu). Add a dash of salt while cooking - it really brings out the flavor of the veggies.

      Transfer veggies to bowl and put 1 tablespoon oil in skillet/wok over medium heat. Add nuts and begin to toss while cooking. As nuts begin to turn golden color, add 1/2 teaspoon fennel seed. Let nuts overcook to a dark brown - its okay to have some black nuts as it adds flavor. Once the nuts are done, add cooked rice to skillet/wok and mix in oil, nuts, and fennel. Add dash of salt to rice mixture and let cook for a couple of minutes while stirring. Transfer to serving bowl.

      Heat veggies back up and add tofu - cook until heated through. Add bok choy green tops just at end, cook until wilted. Salt and pepper to taste, serve over rice.

      Serves: 4

    • Slow Roasted Root Vegetables

      Thanks to our customer Lawrence Duncan for this delicious and heart-warming recipe!

      Ingredients:

      • 3 large potatoes
      • 3 large carrots
      • 3 large beets
      • 8 large garlic cloves, peeled
      • 2 tsp rosemary, fresh or powdered
      • 2 tsp cumin, ground
      • 1 tbsp black pepper, course ground
      • 2 tsp sea salt

      Directions:

      Preheat oven to 250 deg F. This is a "low & slow" recipe, which takes a little bit of patience, but well worth it! You can vary the ratio of vegetables to suit your tastes, as well as the choice and amounts of herbs and spices.

      Cut the potatoes, carrots, and beets into large chunks. The size of the chunks determines which vegetable cook the fastest: the potatoes and beets should be the largest chunks, with the carrots being a little smaller / thinner. You'll get the feel for the right size with practice.

      Place the chunked potatoes, carrots, and beets in a large mixing bowl, along with the peeled garlic cloves. Add oil and sprinkle in the spices, while stirring until all the vegetables are thoroughly coated.

      Spread the mixture evenly onto a baking tray, and place into the oven. Cook for about 2 hours, or until done.

      Serves: 3 - 4

      Preparation time: 2 1/2 hours
