This recipe appeared in the New York Times by one of our favorite chefs, Mark Bittman. The recipe comes together in less than 30 minutes; be mindful not to overcook the lettuce so that it retains its sweetness. Try using Swiss chard (leaves only) and a leek in lieu of the shallot and lettuce. Vegetarians can omit the prosciutto. The recipe serves 4. (more…)
From the Williams-Sonoma website, here is an easy and delicious way to prepare eggplant. Inspired by lasagna, this fresh dish takes advantage of summer’s ripe heirloom tomatoes and abundant eggplant. Cooked on the grill, it makes a great accompaniment to burgers and grilled meats at a summer cookout, but, served with herbed couscous or polenta, it also makes a great vegetarian meal. Serves 4 (1 eggplant per person).
This recipe is an alternative to the “traditional” sautéed Swiss chard with garlic. Depending on whether you want to use the chard stems as well in the recipe (you can cut them up finely, or dice them), you may need about a quarter to half a cup of chicken stock. Start with ¼ cup and add more as needed to get the chard wilted, before adding the tomatoes and lemon juice. Serves 4 as a side dish. Enjoy!
