soba noodles with bok choi, carrots, mushrooms, onions and chicken

When we have mushrooms, carrots, and bok choi together, we can’t resist making a delicious noodle bowl like this one! It’s a super-quick dish to make and can make for great leftovers. Mushrooms will provide a nice savory umami flavor for a satisfying vegetarian meal - or - Omnivore & Localvore packages include chicken breast, which you can add for an extra serving of protein.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Chicken Breast, sliced into even strips

  • 3 Carrots, peeled and sliced

  • 1 Cup Mushrooms, chopped

  • 1 Small Yellow Onion, chopped

  • 1 Clove Garlic, minced

  • 2 Small bok choi, chop the stalks, but keep leaves intact

  • 1 Bundle of soba noodles

  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil

  • 1 Tbsp. Sesame Oil

  • 1/2 Cup Soy Sauce

Process:

  1. Prep all vegetables

  2. In a large pan, heat olive oil over medium heat

  3. Season chicken with a dash of salt. Put chicken into pan and cook for five minutes, stirring frequently. Cooking pre-sliced chicken means each piece will cook through quickly!

  4. In a medium pot, boil water over medium-high heat.

  5. Once water in boiling, add soba noodles to the water, and cook for 2-4 minutes until noodles are tender; remove and drain — but be sure to reserve 1/2 cup of noodle water for combining ingredients in a following step! (The starch in the water helps everything come together.)

  6. Once the chicken is mostly cooked, add onions and garlic to the pan; cook until fragrant (about two minutes)

  7. Add the stalks of bok choi, carrots and 1/2 cup of reserved noodle water; cook for 4 minutes

  8. Once carrots begin to tenderize, add mushrooms and bok choi leaves. Stir in soy sauce and sesame oil, and cook for another 3-4 minutes (until bok choi leaves are wilted. You want some liquid to remain to create a nice sauce to coat the vegetables and noodles.

  9. Turn down the heat; add the soba noodles. Mix thoroughly. Season with additional salt or soy sauce if needed. Serve warm and enjoy!

Vegetarian Mushroom-Celeriac Stuffing

Vegetarian Mushroom-Celeriac Stuffing.PNG

This recipe puts two spins on the classic- mushrooms make it vegetarian, and replacing celery with celeriac allows you to more easily use only local ingredients! You can use stuffing mix from Red Hen Baking Company, or use a loaf of their delicious bread! Multigrain, whole grain, polenta bread, and other bread varieties will add texture and flavor to your stuffing.

Ingredients:

1 Loaf of Crusty Bread, or 1 Package of Stuffing Mix (which you can get from our pop-up shop!)

1 Pint of Mushrooms

1 small Celeriac (2 cups, diced)

2 small Onions (2 cups, diced)

1 Quart of Vegetable Broth

2 ounces and 4 ounces of butter, divided

3 sprigs of rosemary, chopped

2 sprigs of sage, chopped

5 sprigs of thyme, chopped

3 sprigs of winter savory, chopped

Salt and pepper

 

Process:

1. If using fresh bread, rip the bread up into chunks and leave uncovered in a bowl for 1-2 days to get stale. Alternately, you can spread the chunks on a baking sheet and toast in the oven at 325°F for 20 minutes or so, until the bread is dry and somewhat crispy. If using stuffing mix, you can skip this step altogether!

2. Preheat oven to 400°F.

3. Chop the onion, mushrooms and celeriac. Don’t be intimidated by celeriac’s large size or uneven skin! No need to peel it, just cut the vegetable into a cube, thus removing the skin. From there, it is easy to dice. You can even save the leftover pieces for making your own stock.

4. Melt the 2 tbsp of butter in skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and let them cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until they start to get translucent. Add the celeriac, mushrooms, salt, and pepper, and continue to cook.

5. Meanwhile, while the vegetables are cooking, chop the herbs. Feel free to use whichever herbs you like best in the amounts you prefer. For example, you can increase the amount of rosemary and decrease the amount of another herb if you’d like.

6. After the vegetables have been cooking for a few minutes, add the herbs and cook until fragrant.

7. Place bread pieces in a large bowl. Add cooked herbs and vegetables and stir to combine.

8. Melt the remaining 4 ounces of butter. Pour melted butter and vegetable broth over the bread mixture, once again stirring to combine.

9. Transfer everything to a large, greased baking dish and cover with foil. Bake for 30 minutes, then uncover and bake another 15 minutes or so, until the top is a deep golden brown. Serve!

Polenta Bread Pudding with Asparagus, Mushrooms & Cheese

Recipe Level: Creative | Recipe Speed: Average | Season: Spring (because of the asparagus) | Type: Main Dish, or Starchy Side | Diet: Veg

Bread pudding isn't just for dessert! This savory version is a delicious vegetarian main course, but could also serve as an excellent side dish to a sausage link or a roasted chicken leg. Once you know how to make bread pudding, you can make it with almost anything. Change up the bread, and the veggies, add meat, whatever makes you happy! 

  • 1 loaf polenta bread, or any other kind of bread you'd like to use. The bread can be slightly stale.
  • olive oil
  • 1 cup shiitake mushrooms
  • 6 spears asparagus
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 pint half-and-half
  • 6 eggs
  • salt
  • pepper
  • nutmeg
  • 6 ounces cheddar
  1. Preheat the oven to 375-degrees.
  2. Cut the polenta bread into half-inch cubes. Spread the cubes on a baking sheet, toss with a drizzle of olive oil, and toast, stirring every 10 minutes, until dry on the outside. If the bread is a bit stale to begin with, the toasting time will be shorter.
  3. While the bread is toasting, rinse, de-stem and slice the mushrooms, saving the stems for stock. 
  4. Rinse the asparagus spears and cut into rounds.
  5. Heat some oil in a heavy bottomed pan over medium heat. Sauté the mushrooms until they've browned slightly. Add the asparagus and cook for another minute or two until it turns bright green. Remove from the heat. 
  6. If you haven't already, check the bread. When it's done, turn down the oven temperature to 350-degrees. 
  7. Mince the two cloves of garlic. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the garlic, half-and-half, and eggs. When they're well mixed, season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
  8. Add the bread cubes, stir to combine, and let sit for at least 10 minutes, and up to 30 minutes. Grate the cheese, and stir half of it in with the bread. Reserve the other half.
  9. Transfer the bread cubes to a greased glass baking dish. Sprinkle on the asparagus and mushroom mixture. Top with the remaining cheese. 
  10. Bake the bread pudding until the custard has set, around 45 or 50 minutes, depending on your oven. 
  11. Let cool slightly, and serve in squares.

You can make baked polenta with any toppings you'd like. Tomato sauce and cheese would be great. So would a smear of pesto. Make a batch, and experiment! 

  • 1 recipe cooked polenta, spread on a greased cookie sheet to cool, or 1 tube shelf-stable, cooked polenta
  • 1/2 pint shiitake mushrooms
  • 6 spears asparagus
  • Olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • An acidic ingredient, such as vinegar or lemon juice
  • Salt
  • Pepper

  2. Rinse the mushrooms, pull out the stems and set aside for making stock, and make thin slices from the caps. 
  3. Rinse the asparagus, cut off the bottom half-inch, cut the lengths into inch-long pieces, and cut those pieces into slices. 
  4. Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed pan over medium heat. When the oil shimmers, add the mushrooms and asparagus, and season with salt and pepper. 
  5. Preheat the broiler.
  6. While the mushrooms and asparagus cook, mince a clove of garlic. When the spears are bright green and the mushrooms are tender, add the garlic, and cook, stirring, for one more minute. 
  7. Remove the veggies from the heat, and pop the polenta in the oven. While the polenta is cooking, taste the veggies for seasoning. Add salt and pepper as needed, and drizzle in some lemon juice or vinegar, for brightness.
  8. When the first side of the polenta has developed golden spots in the heat, remove it from the oven. Flip the polenta pieces, and top with the mushroom asparagus mixture. return to oven to heat through. 
  9. P.S. If you're not vegan, this would be excellent with cheese.

Sautéed mushrooms are incredibly versatile. They can be used in omelettes, as a topping on burgers, to garnish salads or vegetable dishes, atop seared meats, or simply eaten as a side dish.

  • mushrooms
  • butter or olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  1. Rinse the mushrooms, pull out the stems and save them for stock (I keep a "stockpile" in my freezer, in which I save bones and veggie scraps. When I have enough, I make a batch). Slice the mushroom caps. 
  2. Heat the fat in a large saucepan, and when hot, add the mushrooms, and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are tender, and slightly browned. 
  3. Use in whatever way suits your fancy. 

Miso Soup with Tofu, Carrots, Mushrooms, and Bok Choi

Recipe Level: Creative | Recipe Speed: Average | Season: Spring/Summer | Type: Soup - Hot | Diet: Vegan/DF

  • ½ package soba noodles

  • Salt

  • Sunflower oil, or another kind of oil that you prefer

  • 3 carrots

  • 1 package of mushrooms

  • 1/2 block tofu

  • 1 medium-sized bok choi

  • 1 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

  • 4 tablespoons miso, plus more to taste (we like either of the varieties from Rhapsody, which is made in Cabot)

  • 1 scallion (optional)

  • Toasted sesame oil, to taste (optional)

 

Miso Soup with Carrots, Mushrooms, and Bok Choi
  1. Boil water in a medium pot, add salt until the water tastes nice and briny, and cook half of the soba noodles according to the package directions. Once they’re done, rinse them in cold water, coat with a small amount of sunflower oil, and set aside.

  2. Wash the carrots, trim off their ends, cut them in half to make two carrot “logs,” and then cut those halves lengthwise. Cut the carrot sections into half-moons.

  3. Remove the stems from the mushrooms, and add them to the “stockpile” you keep in your freezer. (If you don’t already have one, you can start one, now! Just store vegetable scraps in a bag or other container in your freezer, and throw them in when you make stock. Don’t make stock, yet? We’ll give you a couple recipes, next week!)

  4. Trim the stem end of the bok choi so there’s no brown, and peel off the individual leaves. Cut them into strips the long way.

  5. Heat sunflower oil in a medium-sized, heavy-bottomed pan. Add the carrots first, sprinkle with salt, and cook, stirring, until they start to tenderize, around 4 minutes. Add the mushrooms and tofu, sprinkle on more salt, and continue stirring. After another three or so minutes, add the bok choi. Cook until the green of the choi is a little brighter, and the leaves are slightly wilted.

  6. Add enough water to cover the vegetables and tofu, 1 tablespoon tamari, and 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar, and bring to a simmer. Turn off the heat.

  7. Slice the scallion into thin rounds. Portion the soba noodles into bowls, and top with scallion. Drizzle on toasted sesame oil.

  8. Ladle about ½ cup of liquid from the pot into a bowl, and add miso paste (this is easier than adding a blob of miso directly to the soup pot, and then trying to get it evenly dispersed). Stir until blended, and pour the miso into the soup pot.

  9. Taste the soup for seasoning. If it’s not salty enough, you could add more tamari, or more miso. If it needs to be brighter, add additional vinegar. If you’d like it to be nuttier, you can splash on extra sesame oil.

Sautéed Mushrooms, Spinach, and Onions (for Pasta, Eggs, Quesadillas, or Side Dish)

Sauteed Mushrooms, Spinach, and Onions

Recipe Level: Basic | Recipe Speed: Quick | Season: Spring | Type:  Side - Veggie | Diet: Vegan/Vegetarian

This is one of our favorite veggie combos for Spring. We sautéed all the mushrooms and about 3/4 of the spinach with one whole onion to make a large batch. It's amazing how quickly spinach cooks down! 

This veggie trifecta can be added to a lot of dishes. Our suggestions would be to

a) add it to your favorite pasta (with more butter and/or olive oil, and maybe a sprinkle of parmesan cheese or red pepper flakes)

b) make an egg scramble, and stir in a scoop of these veggies in when the eggs are about 1/2 cooked, for a super-easy and super-healthy breakfast. 

c) serve as a side dish to fish or chicken

d) check out our Quesadilla recipe, where we added veggies and cheddar cheese between 2 All Souls Tortillas for a delicious snack!

Directions:

  • Slice mushrooms into strips, and slice onion in halves and then into strips (we like this texture better than dicing the onion in to little cubes)
  • In a medium or large pan, heat 2 tbsp (at least enough to cover the bottom of the pan) of oil over medium-low heat.
  • First, add the onions, and add some salt and pepper. Let the onions cook, stirring a few times, until they start to become translucent and smell delicious, for about 5 minutes. If the onions are starting to brown already - turn down the heat! It's better to cook them a little more slowly than to burn them, because they'll get a bitter flavor. 
  • Then, add the mushrooms and stir, and cook for another 5 minutes, until the mushrooms are soft. 
  • Finally, add a big heap of spinach, and cook, stirring regularly because the greens cook quickly. When the first heap of spinach cooks down, in just a couple of minutes, you can decide if you want to add more spinach, or if you're done. You don't need to cook the greens any longer than it takes for them to wilt down. This will preserve their color and nutrients.

Cabbage, Mushroom and Onion Wontons - Steamed or Fried!

DSC_1712.jpg
DSC_1717.jpg

Directions

1.     Place cabbage in a pan with oil, salt, and pepper.

2.     Cook down, 4-5 minutes, then add half a cup of water to steam, covering with a lid.

3.     Steam until most of the water has evaporated, about 5 minutes.

4.     Remove cabbage from the pan, then add mushrooms and onions. Sauté until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.

5.     Add cabbage back to pan. Add soy sauce, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.  Cook together for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Let cool before folding into wonton wrappers.

6.     Fold your wontons into whatever way is most comfortable for you. For steaming, we recommend folding into a style that gives a “bottom” to comfortably fit on the pan while steaming. For frying, it is best to have two flat sides that can be easily placed in oil and fried completely. Check out our pictures for inspiration!

 

To steam (for more of a dumpling style): Lightly oil the bottom of a pan. Add a small amount of water to the pan and let heat up. Place your wontons in the pan. Move the wontons around with some tongs, just to make sure they don’t stick. Then add another splash of water to your hot pan and cover with a lid. Steam 3-4 minutes or until the dough is cooked through!

 

To fry: Pour about a ¼ inch layer of your preferred cooking oil into a pan. Wait for it to heat, being careful of splatting oil. Once oil is hot, place a wonton into the oil and fry for about 1 minute on each side or until the wrapper appears textured and golden brown. Be mindful of your oil temp as it may continue to heat up on your stove!
