Strawberry Fool

1 pint heavy cream or 1 can full fat coconut milk (place in fridge for a few hours or overnight before using)

  • 1 pint strawberries

  • up to ¼ cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

 

  1. Mash half of the strawberries with a fork or in a blender with as much sugar as you like.  Slice the other half into 1/8” thick slices lengthwise.
  2. Make whipped cream: if using heavy cream, beat with the vanilla until stiff peaks form.  If using coconut milk, open the chilled can and pour off the liquid.  You’ll only beat the solids.  Beat with vanilla until stiff peaks form.
  3. Fold mashed strawberries into cream, then sprinkle sliced strawberries on top.
  4. Grab a spoon and don’t stop until it’s gone!

Tomato and Cheese Tart

Make your favorite tart crust, or follow this recipe:

1 ¼ cups all purpose flour, plus more for rolling
½ teaspoon salt
10 tablespoons frozen or cold butter, cut into chunks
1 egg yolk
3 tablespoons ice water, plus more if necessary

  1. Combine flour and salt in a food processor and pulse once or twice.  Add butter all at once; process until the mixture is uniform, about 10 seconds.  Add the egg and process for another few seconds.
  2. Put the mixture in a bowl and add ice water; mix with your hands until you can form the dough into a ball, adding another tablespoon or two of ice water if necessary.  Form into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and freeze for 10 minutes or refrigerate for at least 30 mins.
  3. Sprinkle a countertop with flour and put the dough on it; sprinkle the top with a little flour.  Roll with light pressure from the center out, until it’s about 2” wider than the diameter of your pie plate.
  4. Move the dough to your pie plate by folding it into quarters and gently placing it in the plate, then unfold and press.  Use a knife to cut the ragged edges, then decorate the edge as you wish.  Refrigerate for about an hour before filling, or freeze for a half hour.

For the tart:
2 large tomatoes, about 1 ½ pounds
1 tablespoon chopped fresh herbs like basil, cilantro, sage, thyme or oregano
¾ cup goat cheese
¾ cup grated cheese of your choosing
¾ cup heavy cream
1 egg

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.  Slice the tomatoes into rounds and trim off the stem scar.
  2. Mix the goat cheese with the grated cheese, cream and egg.
  3. Put some cheese mixture into the bottom of your prepared tart crust.  Layer tomato slices on top.  Add another cheese layer, then finish with more tomatoes.  Sprinkle with extra grated cheese if desired. 
  4. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until the cheese is slightly browned on top.  Remove from oven and cool on a rack for a few minutes.  Slice and serve warm or at room temperature.

Squash (or Beans) and Greens

Olive oil
1 white spring onion, peeled and chopped into half rings ¼” thick
1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger
2-3 garlic scape, roughly chopped, or 2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
1 teaspoon hot red chile flakes
1 pint box green beans or 3 small summer squash
1 bunch chard
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
 

  1. Heat some olive oil in a large skillet or wok.  When hot, add the garlic, onion, ginger and chile.  Saute until the onions release some of their moisture and turn translucent.
  2. Trim the beans by cutting or snapping off their stem ends.  Chop or snap them in half.  Trim the chard by separating the stalks from the leaves, roughly chop the stems, then chop the leaves into ribbons 1” wide.
  3. Add the beans and chard stalks to the pan, and stir-fry to mix around.  Add the chard leaves and the sesame seeds and stir.
  4. Add the soy sauce and sesame oil, then turn off the heat immediately.  Stir to mix, then serve immediately.

Potato Salad with Dill

1 quart box potatoes
1 bunch dill
2-3 garlic scapes
Salt
Fresh ground pepper
Mayonnaise (homemade is best!)
 

  1. Chop the potatoes into 1” cubes, skins on.  Boil them with water to cover until just tender.  Drain and set aside to cool to room temp.
  2. Chop the dill fine.  Chop the garlic scapes very fine.  Add to the potatoes when cool, then add salt, pepper and mayonnaise to taste.  Start with a tablespoon of mayo and adjust from there. 
  3. Serve at room temperature, or keep covered in the fridge for a couple of days.

Charred Romaine

CHARRED ROMAINE WITH SMOKY SEED CLUSTERS
This recipe comes from Dishing Up The Dirt by Andrea Bemis

Salad
2 large head of romaine lettuce, halved lengthwise, rinsed and patted dry

2 tablespoons olive oil

3-4 radishes, thinly sliced

4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled

2-3 tablespoons minced parsley

Smoky Seed Clusters
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds

1/4 cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas)

1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

1 1/2 tablespoons pure cane sugar

Balsamic Vinaigrette
2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon dijon mustard

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

coarse salt and ground pepper to taste

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat.
  2. In a medium sized skillet toast the sunflower and pumpkin seeds over medium heat, shaking the pan often, until the seeds are golden brown. About 3 minutes. Pour the seeds out onto a plate and toss with the paprika, cayenne and salt.
  3. Place the pan that previously toasted the seeds back on the stove over medium-high heat. Add the sugar and once the sugar has liquified (this wont take long!) add the seeds, tossing to coat them in the melted sugar. Do this quickly as you don’t want the sugar to burn. Remove from the heat and transfer the seeds to a plate to cool. Once cool enough to handle break the seeds apart into small clusters.
  4. Whisk together all the ingredients for the salad dressing and set aside.
  5. Toss the sliced romaine wedges with the 2 tablespoons olive oil. Place cut side down on the preheated grill and cook until lightly charred on the underside. About 3-5 minutes. Flip and cook for about 3-5 minutes longer on the opposite side or until lightly charred.
  6. Dived the romaine wedges between plates and top with the thinly sliced radishes, blue cheese, minced parsley. Drizzle with the dressing and top the wedges with the smokey seed clusters.

Moose Meadow Farm Spring Rolls

These are far from traditional, but we're making them a lot these days as a way to celebrate fresh spring produce.

Spring Rolls
8 clear spring roll wrappers
1/2 bunch cilantro or parsley
2-3 radishes, sliced lengthwise
Cooked rice or vermicelli or glass noodles
Steamed greens, chopped into ribbons
Miso Paste

Dipping Sauce
1/4 cup tahini
1 tablespoon soy sauce
dash Sriracha or other hot sauce
1 tablespoon vinegar

1.  Prepare your ingredients and lay them out on a cutting board or counter.
2.  Boil a quart or so of water, then pour into a pie dish.
3.  Make dipping sauce: use a fork to whisk all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
4.  Assemble the rolls: Moisten one wrapper at a time by holding it on opposite edges and running it through the hot water.  It'll soften within seconds, so be careful not to crumple it.  Lay soft wrapper on a plate, then smear a teaspoon or so of miso onto the bottom third of the wrapper.  Layer fillings on top of the miso.  Don't use more than about 2/3 cup total volume of fillings!
5.  Roll up the wrapper by tucking in the edges, then rolling away from you while tucking the trailing edge in, exactly like you would a burrito.
6.  Once you've made 8 rolls, serve immediately with the dipping sauce.

Mac & Cheese & Greens

This recipe is from Marcus Off Duty by Marcus Samuelsson.  It's a bit more complicated than our usual recipes, but we think a preparation you won't regret!
For the Greens:
½ cup coconut milk
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon grainy mustard
6 slices bacon, cooked, drained and crumbled
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
4 garlic cloves, peeled and halved
4 cups chopped kale, spinach, or chard leaves
 
For the Mac and Cheese
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
½ cup thinly sliced shallots
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
8 oz cheddar cheese, grated
4 oz Gruyere cheese, grated
4 oz Parmesan cheese, grated
½ cup crème fraiche
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 tesapoon mustard powder
Kosher salt and freshly ground white pepper
1 pound orecchiette or other small, sturdy pasta, cooked until just tender
 
For the Topping
1/3 cup toasted bread crumbs
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon grated Gruyere cheese
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
 
1. Make the greens.  Bring coconut milk and soy sauce to a boil in a small saucepan.  Remove from the heat and stir in the mustard and crumbled bacon.
2.  Heat the olive oil and butter in a large pot over low heat.  Add the garlic and slowly toast to flavor the fats, about 5 mins, then discard.  Add the greens to the pot and cook, stirring frequently, until the greens start to wilt.  Stir in the coconut milk mixture and cook, partly covered, until the greens are tender and the sauce has thickened, 20 mins.
3.  Make the Mac and Cheese.  Preheat the broiler.  Oil a 9x13" baking dish.
4.  Melt the butter in a large pot over medium-low heat.  Add the shallots and cook until they're tender and golden brown, 8-10 mins.  Add the minced garlic and flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.  Slowly whisk in the heavy cream and milk, making sure there are no lumps.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low, then add all the cheeses and creme fraiche.  Whisk until the cheeses are melted and fully incorporated into the sauce.  Mix in the nutmeg, mustard, and salt and pepper to taste.
5.  Add the cooked pasta and greens to the sauce and toss to combine.  Transfer to the baking dish.
6.  Make the topping.  Put all the ingredients in a food processor and process until the herbs are minced.  Sprinkle the topping over the pasta.  Broil until the topping is golden brown, 5-8 mins.  Serve immediately.

Chimichurri

This is a classic Argentine herb sauce that is especially good on grilled vegetables or meats (or try it with roasted beets!)  We’ve been making it weekly with the abundance of parsley and cilantro coming out of our high tunnels.  We don’t have fresh oregano at the moment, but it’s just as good without!

1 ½ cups fresh parsley, most of the stems removed

½ cup fresh cilantro, most of the stems removed

1 tablespoon fresh oregano leaves

3 garlic cloves, smashed

1 teaspoon hot red chile flakes

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

3 tablespoons neutral oil

Salt and pepper to taste

3 tablespoons olive oil

In a food processor, combine all the ingredients except the olive oil.  Process until combined, then stir in the olive oil by hand.  Taste, adjust the seasoning, and use as soon as you can.  It’ll keep in the fridge for only a couple of days, so use it quickly.

Faux Pho (Vegetarian)

This recipe is from the cookbook Bowl by Lukas Volger
 

6 cups shortcut pho broth (see below)
1 ½ teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 onion, diced or one bunch scallions, sliced on the diagonal
5 plump garlic cloves, sliced into thin slabs
1 tablespoon neutral-tasting oil
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
½ lb cooking greens: spinach, kale, chard, bok choi etc.
1 cup peas, shelled or with pods
½ lb medium-width rice noodles
1 small green chili (Serrano, jalapeno or Thai), sliced into very thin rings
1 bunch fresh parsley, cilantro, or a combination, for serving
Lime wedges, for serving

  1. Place broth in a pot and heat to a simmer.  Stir in the salt and sugar.  Keep warm until serving.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-low heat.  Add onions/scallions and garlic.  Cook until beginning to brown, 10-15 minutes.  Pour in vinegar and scrape and stir the skillet to mix in the brown bits.  Remove from heat.
  3. Bring a saucepan of salted water to boil.  Add greens and cook briefly, until bright green and wilted.  Remove to a plate with a spider skimmer.  Add peas and blanch briefly in hot water.  Transfer to a plate with a spider skimmer.
  4. Add noodles to the boiling water in a steamer basket so they’re easy to remove. Cook until tender, 4-7 minutes.  Divide noodles into four bowls.
  5. Top noodles in each bowl with greens, peas, browned onions and chili slices.  Ladle hot broth over each serving.  Serve immediately, passing herbs and lime wedges at the table.

Shortcut Pho Broth
1oz fresh ginger
2 quarts vegetable broth or water
3 garlic cloves, peeled
2 whole star anise
2 whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick
1 stalk fresh lemongrass, smashed and coarsely chopped
Small handful of fresh cilantro stems

  1. Turn a gas burner on high.  Using heat-safe tongs, hold ginger over flame and turn it as needed until charred all over.  This will take 5-7 minutes.  Alternatively, if you don’t have a gas range, blacken ginger in the over broiler.
  2. In a saucepan, combine broth/water with blackened ginger, garlic, star anise, cloves, cinnamon, and lemongrass.  Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer and cook for 25-35 minutes.  Add cilantro stems and simmer another 5 minutes.
  3. Strain broth through a cheesecloth-lined sieve: gather up ends of cheesecloth and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.  Once completely cooked, pack broth in containers and store in the fridge for up to 1 day or in the freezer for up to 2 months for later use.

Spinach Quiche

First, make a crust.  Here is Katherine’s favorite flaky no-butter crust: (1 single crust)
1 cup white flour
½ cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ cup canola oil
1/3 cup cold water
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
pinch salt

Microgreens to garnish
 

Mix all ingredients together, DO NOT KNEAD.  Roll out on a floured surface, then carefully fold into quarters, and unfold into pie plate.
 

Then, make the quiche filling.
6 eggs, room temperature
2 cups grated cheese
2 cups cream or milk, heated until just warm
1 cup cooked, drained and chopped spinach
 ½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon grated nutmeg
 

  1. Preheat oven to 425F.  Bake pie crust for 10-12 minutes, then remove and cool while you prepare the filling.  Reduce oven temperature to 325F.
  2. Combine eggs, cheese, milk, spinach, salt and nutmeg and beat until blended. 
  3. Put the partially cooked shell on a baking tray and pour in the egg mixture.  Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until almost firm and lightly browned on top.  It should still jiggle just a little in the middle.  Reduce the oven heat if the shell’s edges are darkening too quickly.  Cool on a rack and serve warm or at room temperature.

Carrot Ginger Soup with Cashew Cream and Spiced Chick Peas

This recipe comes from  the Dishing Up the Dirt cookbook

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or other neutral oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 inch piece of fresh turmeric, peeled and grated (or sub 1/2 teaspoon ground)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds carrots, chopped into 1-inch chunks
  • 4 1/2 cups water + additional to thin if necessary
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Chopped parsley for serving

Cashew Cream

  • 1 cup raw unsalted cashews (soaked in warm water for at least 30 minutes)
  • 3/4 water + additional to thin as needed
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

Spiced Chickpeas

  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas (if from the can rinsed, drained and patted dry)
  • 1 Tablespoon grapeseed oil (or olive oil)
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 

Preparation

  1. Drain the soaked cashews and run them under cold water. Place into a high speed blender with the water, garlic, lemon juice and salt. Blend on the highest setting until completely smooth. Taste test and adjust seasonings if need be. Pour anywhere between 1/2- 3/4 of the cashew cream into a jar leaving the other the remainder in the blender.
  2. Heat a large soup pot over medium high heat. Add the coconut oil and once melted toss in the onion. Cook, stirring often until fragrant and beginning to soften. About 5 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, cayenne and salt stirring frequently until fragrant. About 30 seconds. Toss in the chopped carrots and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the carrots are soft. About 20 minutes. Carefully add the soup to the blender with the remaining cashew cream (you made need to do this in batches) and whirl away until smooth. Taste test and adjust seasonings if need be.
  3. Return the soup to the stove and heat on low for an additional 10-15 minutes so the flavors have a chance to enhance.
  4. Toss the chickpeas with the oil, salt and spices. Place on a prepared baking sheet and roast in a 425F oven until lightly browned and crisp. About 20-25 minutes. Shake the pan a couple of times during the cooking time.
  5. Divide the soup between bowls and drizzle with a few tablespoons of cashew cream, a small handful of spiced chickpeas and a few sprigs of fresh parsley.

Scallion Pancakes

This is a relatively new discovery for us, but these pancakes are so delicious!

1 tablespoon miso paste
1 cup water
1 cup flour
1 egg
1 teaspoon chopped fresh ginger
1/2 cup cubed, cooked potatoes
1 bunch scallions, trimmed and chopped small
1 tablespoon neutral oil

1.  Mix miso with water until dissolved.  Add egg and beat well.  Add flour, ginger, potatoes and scallions and stir gently until well mixed.  
2.  Heat oil in a 12" cast iron skillet or other non-stick pan.  When hot, add the batter all at once and press down with a spoon or spatula until it fills out the pan and is flat.
3.  Cook on one side until it starts to get crisp.  Then flip it over by slicing it in half and using a spatula to flip each half separately, or turn it upside down onto a plate and then slide it back in the pan to cook the other side.  Don't be afraid if it breaks apart!  It'll still be tasty.
4.  When both sides are crisp, remove from pan, slice into triangles, and serve.

French Onion Soup

This recipe is adapted from thekitchn.com

2 1/2 pounds yellow onions
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon sugar
8 cups beef, chicken, or vegetable broth
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup white wine, optional
1/4 cup brandy, optional
6 to 8 baguette slices, toasted
1 1/2 to 3 cups shredded Gruyere or Parmesan cheese (1/4 to 1/2 cup per serving)
Minced raw shallot or onion, to garnish

  1. Peel and slice the onions into half moons.  Cut the half moon slices in half.  You want about 6 cups of chopped onions.

  2. Melt the butter with the oil over medium-low heat in a large saucepan.  Add the onions after the butter foams up and then settles down; stir to coat with the butter.  Cover the pan and cook for 15 minutes on low heat.

  3. Remove the lid. The onions should have wilted down somewhat. Stir in 1 teaspoon salt, a generous quantity of black pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon sugar (this helps the onions caramelize).

  4. Turn the heat up to medium and cook, uncovered and stirring every few minutes, until the onions are deeply browned. Turn down the heat if the onions scorch or stick to the pan; the browning doesn't come through burning, but through slow, even caramelization.  This will take about 20 minutes.

  5. As the onions approach a deep walnut color, heat the broth in a separate pot.  Add 3 tablespoons flour to the caramelized onions and cook and stir for about 1 minute.

  6. Add the hot broth to the caramelized onions and bring to a boil. If using wine, add this now too. Lower the heat and partially cover the pan. (If you want to add other aromatics such as herbs or spices, do so now.) Cook gently over low heat for at least 1 hour or until the broth is slightly reduced.

  7. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper if needed. Add a finishing splash of brandy, if desired!

  8. Heat the oven to 350°F. Divide the soup between small but deep oven-safe bowls. Top each with a slice (or two) of toasted baguette and sprinkle grated cheese in a thick layer over the bread and up to the edge of the bowl.  Place the bowls on a baking sheet or in a casserole dish. Bake until the cheese is thoroughly melted.

  9. Turn the oven from bake to broil and broil the soup for 1 to 3 minutes or until the cheese is browned and bubbling. Remove carefully from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before serving on heatproof dishes or trivets. Serve with freshly ground pepper and minced fresh onion or shallot, which provides a welcome bite in contrast to the very sweet and mellow soup.
