The Greenest Salad Recipe

The Greenest Salad Recipe
Anytime I travel for an extended period of time, let's say longer than a couple of weeks, I end up craving certain foods from home. The craving creeps up on me like a fungus - not bad at first, but in the end, formidable. This trip it was avocado, then leafy salads, eventually dovetailing into broccoli. The greenest of the green stuff. Those of you who have been readers for some time know there are few things I love (or assign more importance to) than serendipity. The property includes the company headquarters, an organic farm, a commercial kitchen (where much of the food is prepped for the cafe), and residences. I suspect Anokhi Cafe is the only restaurant in Jaipur (all of Rajasthan?) The greens are gently harvested, washed in purified water, and served at the cafe in a range of beautiful salads. This is Babulal. Thank you Melissa, Pritham, and Rachel, for the wonderful impromptu lunch and visit. Today's recipe? Serves 4. Print Recipe Related:  salad

butternut squash salad with farro and pepitas This was my lunch last week. I know that it may look less like lunch and more like penance, some apology for eating too many squares of salted-caramel-glazed fanned-apples-atop-1000-layers-of-buttery-pastry . I realize that most people think that when you start serving them bowls hearty grains and roasted squash that you might have an ulterior motive, like their thighs. Herein lies my approach to grain salads: I like whatever vegetables I’m using in the salad to be the bulk of it, and the grains to be the accent, like a crouton. The salad is not a miracle worker. Comes out ONE WEEK FROM TODAY. Spiced Applesauce Cake Cauliflower with Almonds, Raisins and Capers Cranberry Walnut Chicken Salad and Pumpkin Swirl Brownies Gluten Free Chocolate Financiers , Pumpkin Butter and Pepita Granola Spinach Quiche and Pumpkin Muffins Serves 4 to 6, generously The pearling process removes the inedible hull that surrounds the wheat, and farro is generally sold either pearled, semi-pearled or regular.

Broccolini Salad Recipe I think we've discussed this before. My friend Malinda has a real knack for making salads. Remember the shaved fennel beauty in Super Natural Every Day? That was hers. We were at her house for dinner the other night and she made a broccolini salad I parked just to the right of my wine glass. It was one of those relatively simple preparations that reminded me of how good certain things are. We chatted in the kitchen before dinner about dressing for the salad (and broccoli/broccolini in general). So I kept thinking about it. I made a meal of this by introducing a hard boiled egg - on the side. Fill a big pot with water and bring to a boil. Combine the scallions, serrano pepper, olive oil, and a couple pinches of salt in a small saucepan. To assemble the salad, just before serving, place the broccolini and croutons in a large serving bowl. Use the leftover oil (refrigerate) to cook eggs, drizzled over potatoes, drizzled into soup, etc. Serves 4 - 6. Prep time: 10 min - Cook time: 10 min

Kale Market Salad Recipe There's a small restaurant in our neighborhood known for great pizza. And yes, the pizza is on point. But, really, it's their salads I crave - substantial, always changing, made from whatever looks great at the market. To prep the fennel and carrots, it's worth using a mandolin if you have one. It has been a bit wild around here and this sort of thing is nice to be able to throw together on somewhat of a whim. Thank you to everyone who stopped by QUITOKEETO yesterday. Lacinato kale is my variety of choice here. Make the dressing by using a hand blender or food processor to puree the green garlic, salt, lemon juice, olive oil, avocado, honey, and pepper until smooth. Before you're ready to serve, combine the kale with about half of the dressing in a large bowl use your hands to work the dressing into the kale, softening up the kale a bit in the process. Serves 2-4. Print Recipe

Shaved Fennel Salad Recipe I have a couple regrets related to Super Natural Every Day. Nothing too major, but one is related to photography. I'll start by saying it's not always feasible to have a photo with every recipe in a cookbook. This is especially the case if you want other types of photos in your book, like I did. Here's the problem - recipes with photos get all the love. I think I made this salad a dozen times or more during the time I was working on the book. And an Update! If you're using a knife to prep here, do your best to slice things very, very thinly - not quite see through thin, but close Combine the zucchini, fennel and dill in a bowl and toss with the lemon juice, olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon salt. When you are ready to serve the salad, put the arugula in a large bowl. Serves 4 to 6. Print Recipe

Oregano Brussels Sprouts Recipe 2011 was the best kind of chaotic year. There's no other way to say it. I flew to London, Portland, Palm Springs, and West Virginia. I rode rails to Paris, drove to Marfa, and walked my way through the soles of three pairs of shoes. I moved. Now that we've crossed into 2012, I feel like there is a clean stretch of road in front of me. Happy new year all. To make a meal of this, serve over farro, quinoa, rice, or on top of a frittata. 24 small brussels sprouts (less if you can only find larger sprouts) extra virgin olive oil fine grain sea salt Oregano Drizzle 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1/4 cup fresh oregano, chopped 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped 1 large garlic clove 1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt, plus more to taste. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for rubbing a big handful of toasted almond slices Wash the brussels sprouts well.
