Potato Cakes with Chard and Taleggio

From Mabry's Online Market

<p>Bubble and squeak is an iconic British dish made by frying leftover boiled potatoes and cabbage to make a large, flat potato cake that is crisp outside and soft within. Bubble and squeak can be as simple as the traditional leftover cabbage and potato fry-up or somewhat more sophisticated with the introduction of cheese, smoked pork, fish, or other vegetables. The bells-and-whistles versions can often successfully disguise the fact that your supper is made from stuff you found at the back of the fridge. Keeping the potato pieces quite coarse makes the texture more interesting.</p> Vegetarian!

Pumpkin Recipes

From United States Virgin Islands

<p>Pumpkin, Pumpkin, Delicious Pumpkin</p> <p>We&#8217;ve been celebrating the beginning of fall up at Creque Dam Farm with a beautiful harvest of pumpkins. Our talented chefs have been whipping them up in everything.</p> <p>Here&#8217;s a few favorite recipes:</p> <p><strong>Ayurvedic Pumpkin Cookies by Astrid</strong></p> <p>Ingredients<br /> 1 cup pumpkin pureed (boiled until soft and then blended in the blender)<br /> 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened<br /> 1 cup sugar<br /> 2 T. vanilla <br /> 1/2 t. cinnamon<br /> 1/2 t. ginger<br /> 1/2. t. clove<br /> 1/4 t. nutmeg<br /> 5 dates<br /> 2 cups flour<br /> pinch of salt<br /> 4 T. ground pecans<br /> 3 dozen whole nuts for topping</p> <p>Preheat oven to 350 degrees F</p> <p>Cream butter, sugar, spices, and vanilla together<br /> Add dates, nuts, and pumpkin. <br /> Whisk in salt and flour to wet mix.</p> <p>Bake on buttered sheet for 15 minutes or until golden brown.</p> <p>These are so decadent!</p> <p>*Roasted Pumpkin *</p> <p>Peel pumpkin and remove the seeds. Wash the seeds and roast them for a tasty treat. Add a bit of sea salt or cinnamon.</p> <p>Then slice your pumpkin into 1/8 inch (thin slices). Toss in olive oil and a bit of salt.</p> <p>Lay on a cookie sheet in a single layer and roast at 400 for 15-20 minutes. Better than french fries!</p> <p><strong>Basic Pumpkin Puree</strong></p> <p>You can add pumpkin puree to many, many things&#8230;.soup, bread, muffins, pie, smoothies, and sauces. To make pumpkin puree, peel and seed your pumpkin. Then, cut it up into chunks and steam it in a large saucepan. You can use a steamer basket or just place the pumpkin in a few inches of water in the pot and boil away. You&#8217;ll get delicious, soft boiled pumpkin in 20-30 minutes. After it&#8217;s soft, put the steamed pumpkin in a blender or food processor and you will have pumpkin puree!</p> <p>You can pretty much use pumpkin in any way that you would use a banana or a potato. Sweet or savory, pumpkin is delicious. Be brave, have fun, and enjoy the delicious taste!</p> Vegetarian!

Question: How Do I Stir-fry Different Types of Vegetables?

From Farm2Work

<p>This article is copied from the following link:</p> <p>http://chinesefood.about.com/od/cookingfaqs/f/fryvegetables.htm</p> <p>&#8220;You’ve decided to a prepare a healthy stir-fry from scratch, using ingredients you have on hand. Not sure whether a certain vegetable is a good candidate for stir-frying? It all comes down to the density and moisture level of the vegetable.</p> <p>Answer:</p> <p>High moisture vegetables that are not too hard, like zucchini, sweet peppers, spinach and mung bean sprouts, can be quickly stir-fried at high heat without the addition of extra liquid.</p> <p>Denser, low moisture vegetables like broccoli and carrots, on the other hand, require more cooking time. Most recipes call for the vegetables to be stir-fried briefly and then boiled in a liquid such as chicken broth. Another option is to briefly blanch the vegetables prior to stir-frying.<br /> Many vegetables fall somewhere between these two extremes. Snow peas (also called sugar peas and snap peas) have medium moisture levels and thickness – they can be stir-fried dry or finished in a sauce. Asparagus, on the other hand, is a high moisture vegetable but relatively hard and thick – liquid is usually added.</p> <p>More Tips on Stir-frying Vegetables:</p> <p>For all vegetables, cut them into uniform size before stir-frying. This ensures that they will cook evenly.<br /> Be sure the vegetables are thoroughly drained before stir-frying. (A good tip is to wash the vegetables and leave them to drain earlier in the day). Wet vegetables can ruin a stir-fry.<br /> On the other hand, if vegetables become too dry during stir-frying, they can burn. To prevent this, splash them with a bit of Chinese rice wine, dry sherry, or water while stir-frying.<br /> Keep moving the vegetables during stir-frying. This also helps prevent them burning.&quot;</p>
