RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Roasted Vegetable Pie with Puff Pastry

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. pumpkin (approx. 1/2 a medium pumpkin), peeled
  • 14 oz. cauliflower (approx. 1/3 cauliflower)
  • 2 medium parsnips
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 sage leaves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons thyme leaves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 1 egg, whisked

Recipe from www.occasionallyeggs.com

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Chop pumpkin, cauliflower, and parsnip into approximately 1 inch pieces.  The cauliflower florets can be a bit larger.
  3. Place the vegetables onto prepared tray and mix with remaining ingredients except the pastry.  Roast for 30-35 minutes, or until softened and lightly golden.  Chill for at least 20 minutes in a cool spot before assembling.
  4. Preheat the oven to 400F again and line a large baking sheet. Once the vegetables have cooled, roll out the puff pastry between two sheets of parchment paper.  Place pastry onto the baking sheet.
  5. Add vegetables to one half of the pastry, leaving enough space around the edges to seal the pie.  Fold the pastry over and press with your fingers to seal the edges.  Brush with the egg and cut a few slits into the top of the pie with a sharp knife.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until very golden. Serve hot.

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Couscous Salad with Summer Fruit & Arugula

Ingredients

For the vinaigrette:

  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 heaping tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

For the Balsamic Glaze:

  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar

For the Salad:

  • 5 cups no-salt-added vegetable broth (may substitute chicken broth)
  • 4 cups dried Israeli (pearled) couscous
  • Olive oil (optional)
  • 5 oz. baby arugula (6 cups)
  • 1 scant pint fresh raspberries (2 cups)
  • 1 scant pint fresh blackberries (2 cups)
  • 1 scant pint fresh blueberries (2 cups)
  • 2 cups halved cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cups diced seedless cucumber (from 1 English cucumber)
  • 2 cups crumbled feta cheese

Instructions

  1. For the vinaigrette:  Whisk together oil, vinegar, Dijon mustard, and garlic in medium bowl until emulsified.  Season lightly with salt and pepper.  The yield is a generous 1 cup.
  2. For the balsamic glaze:  Pour vinegar into a small saucepan over low heat, then stir in sugar until it has dissolved.  Cook for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until reduced by half to form a thick and syrupy glaze.  Let cool to room temperature. T he yield is a generous 1/2 cup; you’ll need 2 tablespoons for this recipe; the rest can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
  3. For the salad: Bring the broth to a boil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the pearled couscous, then reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Stir well and allow to cool to room temperature; keep stirring every so often as it cools. You can add a little oil if the couscous starts to stick together.
  4. Once the couscous has cooled, transfer it to a very large serving bowl. Add the arugula, all the berries, the cherry tomatoes, cucumber, feta, and vinaigrette; toss gently until evenly coated and incorporated.
  5. Drizzle the 2 tablespoons of balsamic glaze over the top. Serve right away.

  • Preheat oven to 400°. Place zucchini in colander; sprinkle with salt. Let stand 10 minutes, then squeeze out moisture.
  • Combine zucchini with eggs, Parmesan, and half of mozzarella and cheddar cheeses. Press into a greased 13×9-in. or 3-qt. baking dish. Bake 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, cook beef, garlic, onion, and spices, over medium heat, crumbling beef, until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add tomato sauce; spoon over zucchini mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheeses; add green pepper. Bake until heated through, about 20 minutes longer.
  • Freeze option: Cool baked casserole; cover and freeze. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Unwrap casserole; reheat on a lower oven rack until heated through and a thermometer inserted in center reads 165°.
