Asparagus and White Bean Salad with Feta and Lemon Dressing

Served with crusty bread, this salad makes a terrific meal. White beans provide a delectable hearty tenderness, without overwhelming the delicate asparagus. Tangy feta, zesty lemon, and a touch of mint give this salad a bright and refreshing flavor.

Baby's Berry-Citrus Compote with Champagne Vinaigrette *NON-ALCOHOLIC!!!*

This is something I tossed together one morning whilst grazing through my fridge in search of … whatever, LOL!

Proper food precautions with honey and all that, don’t let your tiny toddlers steal this, just in case, or leave the honey out, and wash all fruits well, no matter the origin. Safety first!

Feel free to substitute seasonal berries! ;oD

Braised Lettuces

Tired of munching bunny food? Don’t be afraid to add heat to lettuce. In this recipe, small heads ww. Cooking lettuce this way brings out a natural, delicate sweetness in the leaves. The bunnies don’t know what they’re missing.

Broiled Halibut with Miso Glaze

This is a classic Japanese take on fish. Doug’s Halibut was the perfect cut for this. I served one steak with some spinach and shitake dumplings and Hon Tsuyu soup base (Fooks) with rice noodles and it served three generously.

Crème Fraîche Roasted Salmon

You’d think this recipe is too simple to be any good, and it’s so simple it barely qualifies as a recipe, but I tried it on a whim and you know what? It’s really, really good.

Easy Vietnamese Basic Dipping Sauce

This basic sauce is almost as ubiquitous in Southeast Asian cooking as catsup is in ours. Called Nuoc cham (“nook chahm”), it can be made in many versions, some cooked, some uncooked. Many nuoc cham recipes use a commercial preparation called “fish sauce”; it’s made from fermented anchovies, and smells awful but tastes good. However, substituting soy sauce (which the Vietnamese themselves also sometimes do) makes the recipe vegan and it still is tasty.

Farmer’s Cabbage and Mushroom Pie

This is a farmer’s pie: rustic, a little rude, and down-right delicious. Traditionally, the pie was set in the middle of the table and everyone, fork in hand, had at it. But you can serve it in slices to avoid fights over the last bits. Try crumbling a few slices of crispy bacon into the pie for even more flavor.

Pan-Broiled Salmon (Sake Nanban-yaki)

From Shizuo Tsuji, Japanese Cooking: A Simple Feast, which came out in the early eighties with an introduction by M.F.K. Fisher and color illustrations apparently subsidized by Suntory whisky, which (it’s noted) pairs well with many Japanese dishes. My friend Annie lent me this cookbook as an artifact, and because of my M.F.K. Fisher addiction. Mostly the recipes were too rigorous to make it in to my regular routine, but this salmon dish is simple and amazing.

Saak Bhaja (Indian-Style Greens)

Simple. Weirdly awesome. Try with a mix of mustard greens and/or collards, kale, chard, turnip greens, broccoli greens, radish tops, any and all of it. Five-spice is a mixture of black mustard seeds, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, whole fenugreek and kalonji seeds.

Sautéed Sunchokes

An easy yet absolutely delicious way to cook up some sunchokes is to sauté them in butter. This is a great alternative to potatoes on the dinner plate, and just as versatile. You’ll surely be asked, “What do you do to your potatoes? They’re so good.”

Savory Fig Tart with Rosemary and Stilton

Apart from the crust, every ingredient for this surprising tart can be purchased through Athens Locally Grown, including the blue cheese. Figs are often made into something sticky sweet, but they are wonderful going down the savory road too.

Spinach-Cheddar Quiche

We have 5 kids, ages 15 down to 1 year and they ALL love this meal. You know that says a lot when you can get all the kids to agree on something! Hopefully your family will enjoy this as much as ours does! The original recipe calls for half-and-half but I have found that evaporated milk makes a great (and less expensive) substitue. Also, the original recipe uses frozen spinach – I always use fresh and have never had a problem.

Strawberry and Leek Quesadillas

This is hardly a recipe, but I wanted to give some ballpark measurements and hints for those who want them. Pick up the most fragrant basket of strawberries, deep red right up to the stem. Then add sauteed leeks with their subtle onion flavor, all held together by the creamy tartness from the goat cheese. It’s a ten minute snack of pure LOVELINESS.

Swiss chard and garbanzo pasta

This is a great, quick, nutritious recipe. I found it online while searching for more ways to cook the delicious Swiss chard we get from Athens Locally Grown, and I’ve changed it only by adding the mushrooms and onion.

Could be vegan without the feta, of course.

Swiss Chard Stem Gratin

Most green leafy vegetable stems are just as delicious as the leaves and can be included in any dish you are making. Depending on the recipe, you may have to give the stems a few minutes head start in boiling water. Or, you can just save them up for variations on this unusual recipe.

Two-Potato Pancakes

These make a great simple dinner with sausages (either meat or veggie-type) and applesauce. The addition of sweet potatoes makes the pancakes much higher in vitamin A and vitamin c, fiber, and complex carbohydrates, while the addition of white potatoes keeps the pancake from being too moist and soft. You can peel the potatoes if you prefer, but keeping the skins makes the dish even healthier.

Vietnamese "Cold Rolls"

When a friend returned from bicycling across Viet Nam, she shared this recipe with us. We adapted it into a kid-friendly family version by putting out the chopped ingredients separately in little bowls. Let everyone choose what they want to add, then fold them into little packets and dip them in the sauce (see separate listing for Easy Vietnamese Basic Dipping Sauce). Little kids and big ones alike love the element of personal control!

Water Buffalo Sausage Polenta Casserole

My stepson and I tried this recipe as a new way to enjoy our Zesty Italian Sausages. It was tasty! I would love to have a local source for buffalo mozarella as the true source of mozarella is water buffalo (we don’t milk ours). In America it’s made with cow’s milk. We sell some of our heifers to new dairies in the southeast, so I hope to refer them in the future.

Feel free to substitute whatever greens you have on hand, or add protein to transform this side dish into the star of the show!
