Broccoli Raab with Garlic

Adapted from Ina Garten’s Recipe This recipe works well in the early spring when the braising greens are young and tender as well as when we get the delightful, but firmer Choy and Raab stalks, just adjust your cooking time accordingly. 2 bunches broccoli rabe or other cooking greens (Choi, Mustard, Kale, etc.) 3 tablespoons […]

Carrot Soufflé

  Another recipe tested on farmers for lunch, and it got a thumbs up all around.  We found the carrot souffle particularly nice paired with some spicy items — we had a spicy dressing on a salad, but with a spicy meat dish it would be great too. Ingredients 3lb Carrots 3 Tablespoons Lard/Butter 1 […]

Chard with Caramelized Onions and Garlic Scapes

Scapes, the immature flowering stalks of plants like garlic, are my favorite “adventurous” vegetable.  One day when I wasn’t paying quite enough attention to my stir-fry, I discovered something wonderful – caramelized garlic scapes! With enough time to cook, garlic scapes will wrinkle up and begin to brown and their garlic flavor will mellow and […]

Pumpkin Chorizo Lasagna

Delicious dishes 24/7. She pulled this twist on the classic lasagna for the first time a few years ago, and […]
