Herbed Goat Cheese and Root Vegetable Galette

As the temperatures go up, our access to root vegetables goes down, so before it gets too hot, why not enjoy the abundant carrots and sweet potatoes that our farmers have to offer. I love this recipe for a lot of reasons: first, it really shows off vegetables that tend to play second fiddle in recipes or are an afterthought in a meal. Second, a galette is like a freeform pie. It is not meant to be perfect looking, but rustic, so if something does not crimp correctly or leaks, who cares; that is what you were going for and third, it uses whole wheat flour and veggies that are really good for you, so… you could consider it (wait for it) healthy pie! 😀

Provencal Greens Soup

I was happy to see chard on the market this week, since it is not always the easiest green to find. Plus, it worked out perfectly, since I have been wanting to make this soup for a while. Chard is used quite frequently in the South of France and in ways that we do not always think to use it here. In the fall of 2015 while in Nice, I enjoyed a lovely piece of chard pie for dessert after our meal. I ordered it mostly because I was curious and could not imagine the green in an unsavory pie. It was delicious, not too sweet and probably not for everyone, but I am on the hunt for a copycat recipe…Greens are something that us southerners grew up with, but probably not chard, so if it is something you have not tried before or even if it is an old favorite, here is a new French spin on something that is tasty and also good for you.

Roasted Vegetables with Pecan Gremolata

It is crunch time; the last shopping week before Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. That means figuring out (if you have not already) what you are going to serve for your special meal. If you are still looking for ideas for a colorful, seasonal, and easy side dish, then this is the one for you. Chock full of nutrition with a little southern spin, plus if you have any vegans coming to dinner, just double or triple, leave off the parmesan and voila, you have a filling dish for all. Whatever holiday you might be preparing for, take a moment away from the hustle and bustle for some quiet reflection and gratitude for the gifts that you have. Always remember the people far and near who are not so lucky. Also, a little reminder; this Tuesday is the last market of 2016 (we will be closed for our one and only week of the year on 12/27.)

Winter Vegetable Soup

Its the most wonderful time of the year…also the busiest, plus, old man winter has finally decided to make an appearance, so in between eating making those holiday treats, moving that &%$@# elf around, and enjoying some holiday cheer, treat yourself and your family to a big bowl of this hearty winter soup. It is chock full of winter root veggies, some that family members may not always like, but are really good for them; i.e. turnips and since you blend it all up, they will never know. 😉
