cool creamy and crunchy carrot, cucumber, and kohlrabi salad

Posted by Bree Marsh on Friday, April 29, 2011,
with fresh rainbow trout cooked in parchment.

got some wonderful rainbow trout from Shiraz yesterday.   it was the whole fish without the head, tail, scales, and bones.  it was perfect for stuffing!  so that's what i did!

i opened it up, seasoned it well with salt and pepper, topped it with some sliced lemons, some onion scapes, and some sage leaves, and folded it back up.

then i placed it on a piece of parchment paper and topped it with another piece, and i folded/crimped the edges of the pap...

gorgeous green garb...

Posted by Bree Marsh on Wednesday, April 27, 2011,
fit to dress any grain, could be made for a goddess, or a plain Jane (like me!)
 

for lunch today, i made this recipe from last week...minus the tahini, plus the addition of one bundle of onion scapes.

cooked up some brown rice pasta(about 6oz of penne) and 1 cup of shelled edamame and mixed everything together.  it made 2 good sized potions.  i placed it over some leftover bib lettuce to continue the green goddess theme!


since i didn't add any tahini this time, which is sesame paste, i topped t...

Here is what I got....what should I do???

Posted by Bree Marsh on Monday, April 25, 2011,
here are some of the veggies i have for this week so far...


BABY KALE.   i bought two big bags of it at the farmers market on saturday, and ry and i have just been using it for salads.  kale is milder than other greens like collards and mustard greens, so it works very well with a simple dressing of extra virgin olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper...or....you could do a Caesar  Salad.  there are so many types of kale.  i like to change it up.  what is your favorite type and what do you do wit...

blackened steel head trout over braised collards and garlic oil and parm crusted red potatoes

Posted by Bree Marsh on Saturday, April 23, 2011,


baby red potatoes, collard greens, trout, and garlic oil


organic veggies, omega 3 rich fish, and homemade garlic oil were the main ingredients....make your own garlic oil by heating up some olive oil (3-4 tbsp) over medium heat, drop in some fresh smashed garlic (a clove or two), cook for 2 minutes, then pour into bowl and let it soak for 30min-1hour.


red potatoes were boiled whole, cooled off, then smashed with my hand and place in a cast iron skillet with the garlic oil and cooked on pretty h...

fresh pea and cilantro hummus

Posted by Bree Marsh on Thursday, April 21, 2011,

this recipe was inspired by a similar one in whole living magazine...



1.5-2 cups fresh peas in the pods, flowering ends snapped off and de-stringed*

*after removing the ends, pull off the fibrous strings that run along both sides of the pea pods.  in the original recipe, it only called for the actual peas, the pods were removed and discarded...i thought that was a waste, since the pods are edible and very flavorful, plus everything is going in the food processor anyway!


discard the fibrous strin...

VERY lemony shrimp pasta with pea tendrils

Posted by Bree Marsh on Tuesday, April 12, 2011,


at the farmers' market on saturday, i found me some pea tendrils AKA pea shoots.  the farmer at the tent said it was the last week he would have them, so i scooped um up!  he let me taste one before i bought the bag...it was so good, tasted just like pea pods right off the bush.  it brought me straight back to my childhood...we grew pea pods in our backyard! 
so i decided to throw them in some brown rice pasta along with sauted shrimp, fresh chopped dill and celery leaves (i know i keep using...

Ain't nothin like the real thing baby...

ain't nothin like the real thang!....Caesar Salad


ok, i may have switched out the Romaine for kale, BUT i did make my own authentic dressing!!!

raw egg yolks, anchovies, and all!!!

i was trying to figure out how to use the leftover anchovies that were in a baggy in the fridge before they went bad, and my client, Carol, suggested Caesar salad.  I thought, hey, something new!  i had all the basic ingredients, except for lemon, which i think would add another dimension of flavor and more of a brigh...
