Asian Sesame Cucumber Salad

Asian Sesame Cucumber Salad

From Willow Arlen at Will Cook for Friends; adjustments made for Intervale Food Hub members

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 2 cucumbers, chilled
  • 2 large carrots
  • 1 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 2 TBSP rice vinegar
  • 1 TBSP fresh lime juice (about half a lime)
  • 2-3 TBSP honey, to taste
  • 1 tsp. Toasted sesame oil
  • pinch of red pepper flakes, to taste
  • ½-1 TBSP toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 scallion, sliced
  • 2 TBSP fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)

Instructions

  1. If you have a spiralizer, use it to cut the cucumbers and carrots into long noodles. Or slice the carrots and cucumber thinly with a knife.
  2. Place the spiralized cucumber into a strainer and toss with 1 tsp. kosher salt. Let the cucumber drain for 15-20 minutes to remove excess water.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl or glass measuring cup, whisk together the vinegar, lime juice, honey, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, and sesame seeds.
  4. Once the cucumber has drained for a bit, spread it onto a layer of paper towels, or a clean dish towel, and gently pat out as much moisture as you can. Place the "noodles" into a large bowl, and add 2-3 TBSP dressing, to coat. Toss to combine, then garnish with additional sesame seeds, sliced scallions, and fresh cilantro. Serve immediately. (Leftover salad can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a day, but keep in mind that the cucumber will continue to release excess water as it sits and may need to be drained.)

Roasted Parsnips in Mustard Cream Sauce with Microgreens

Photo and Recipe by Kylie Thompson. Published on Food52. Adapted for Intervale Food Hub members.

Author Notes: I originally wrote this recipe for Nextdoorganics, the CSA I receive on a weekly basis... This recipe is super easy to whip up and everyone will be amazed. Bring it to a potluck for a deliciously simple and elegant side dish. We served this with simple seared chicken breasts, spooning extra sauce over the chicken. It was divine.

Food Hub Note: Use any hearty root vegetables you have on hand - rutabaga, turnips, carrots, parsnips, and potatoes would work well with this recipe.

Ingredients

1-2 pounds parsnips and/or other vegetables

Mustard Cream Sauce

  • 2 small shallots or 1/2 mild yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1.5 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed microgreens

Directions

  1. Prep Your Ingredients: Preheat oven to 400ºF. Cut turnips into large wedges. Mince the shallots/onion. Wash the microgreens and set aside.
  2. Roast the Veggies: Line a baking sheet with turnips. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for 15 minutes until browned on the bottoms. Flip the vegetables and roast for an additional 5-7 minutes until all the vegetables are fork tender.
  3. Make the Sauce: In a small sauce pan, add the wine and boil for two minutes. Add the minced shallots and boil for an additional 4-5 minutes until the liquid has reduced and the alcohol has cooked off. Reduce to simmer. Add the heavy cream, dijon mustard, parsley, and season with just a touch of salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 10 minutes
  4. Plate it Up: Spoon the roasted veggies into a serving bowl and spoon as much of the mustard sauce as you like over the vegetables (you may have extra.) Top with microgreens and drizzle with olive oil (optional)

Recipe by Rozanne Gold. Photo by Roulo Yanes. Published by Epicurious. Adapted for Food Hub Members.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 1/2 pounds parsnips or carrots, peeled, cut into about 3 x 1/2" strips
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary, plus 5 sprigs rosemary (with roasting, using dried will be fine)
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced (if no fresh garlic on hand, a pinch of garlic salt will work!)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • (optional:) 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

PREPARATION

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Mix parsnips, chopped rosemary, garlic, and oil on a large rimmed baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. Scatter rosemary sprigs over.
  2. Roast for 10 minutes; turn parsnips and roast until parsnips are tender and browned in spots, 10-15 minutes longer. Crumble leaves from rosemary sprigs over; discard stems and toss to coat. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon cumin over. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and more cumin, if desired.

Roasted Carrots with Chimichurri and Parmesan Puree

Recipe and Photo by Steph in Thyme. Adapted for Intervale Food Hub ingredients!

Ingredient

  • 1 bunch carrots, peeled and trimmed
  • 1 lb parsnips, peeled and cut into ½" cubes (If you don't have parsnips, then potatoes would be a great substitute for this creamy parmesan puree!)
  • ¼ cup vegetable or chicken broth
  • ½ tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Chimichurri

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 F. Place the peeled and trimmed carrots on a rimmed baking sheet. Toss with chimichurri so the carrots are completely coated. Arrange into a single layer on the baking sheet, then position on the oven’s middle rack.
  2. Roast the carrots for 25 minutes or until golden and can be pierced with a fork (but not soft, carrots should still have firmness to them al dente style). Don’t worry if you see that the minced chimichurri bits have turned dark during the roasting.
  3. While the carrots are roasting, prepare the pureé: Add the parsnips or potatoes (already cut into ½″ pieces) to a large pot. Cover with cold water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook until pieces are very tender and can easily be pierced through with a fork, about 10 minutes.
  4. Drain the parsnips and let cool for about 5 minutes. Add to a food processor or blender (you may need to work in batches) along with vegetable broth and butter. Process until very smooth, adding additional vegetable broth as needed (i.e. desire a thinner consistency). Scrape contents into a bowl and stir in the Parmesan and salt/pepper to taste. Cover and set aside until carrots are done.
  5. Remove carrots from the oven. Spread the purée into an even layer on the bottom of a serving dish. Pick up the carrots from the baking sheet with tongs or a fork so as not to bring over excess liquid. Wipe off any dark bits of unwanted minced chimichurri. Arrange the carrots in a single layer on top of the purée.
  6. Garnish the carrots with extra chimichurri, drizzling evenly across the carrots.

Roasted Carrot, Parsnip, and Potato Soup

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ½ pounds carrots, peeled and cut in 3/4 inch pieces
  • ½ pound (2 large) parsnips, peeled, quartered, cored and cut in 3/4 inch pieces
  • 1 medium or large red onion, cut in large dice
  • 1 medium (about 6 ounces) gold potato, quartered
  • 2 garlic cloves, in the skin
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 6 cups chicken or vegetable stock or broth
  •  Chopped fresh herbs, such as parsley, thyme, tarragon or chives, for garnish
  •  Crème fraîche or yogurt for garnish (optional)

 

PREPARATION

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a sheet pan or a baking dish with parchment or foil. Toss vegetables, including garlic cloves, with olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Spread in baking dish or on sheet pan in an even layer and place in oven. Set timer for 20 minutes.
  2. After 20 minutes, stir vegetables and turn heat down to 400 degrees. Roast for another 20 to 30 minutes (or longer; I have found every oven I’ve used to be different, thus the range), or until very tender and caramelized on the edges, stirring every 10 minutes. Remove from the heat. You should have about 4 cups roasted vegetables.
  3. Hold garlic cloves with a towel so that you don’t burn your fingers. Squeeze out the pulp into a blender. Add half the vegetables and 2 cups of the stock. Cover the top of the blender with a towel pulled down tight, rather than airtight with the lid, because hot mixture will jump and push the top off if the blender is closed airtight. Blend until smooth and transfer to a soup pot. Repeat with the second half of the roasted vegetables. Transfer to the pot and whisk in remaining broth.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper and heat through. Serve each bowl with a sprinkle of chopped fresh herbs and if you wish, a swirl of crème fraîche or yogurt.

Maple Sweet Potato Puree with Caramelized Onions

Recipe by Claire Robinson. Published by Food Network.

Ingredients

2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped into rough chunks
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided in 1/2
2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more for seasoning
2 tablespoons butter
1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced
Hot water

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.


Place sweet potatoes, 1/4 cup of maple syrup, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper in a large mixing bowl. Toss to evenly coat and place on sheet tray. Roast in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until sweet potatoes are soft. Be sure to check on them after 15 minutes and stir, if needed.


Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, melt butter and add remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the sliced onion, 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Saute until deep golden brown, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, if the pan becomes dry.


Transfer sweet potato mixture to a food processor, (may need to be done in batches) and add about a tablespoon of hot water. Pulse until just blended and then add half the caramelized onions. Pulse just a few times until desired consistency, adding more hot water for a smoother puree. Fold in remaining caramelized onions, reserving some for garnish.


Serve in a warm dish and garnish with the reserved caramelized onions. YUMMY!!!
