Beans and Greens

I made this tonight with a mixture of turnip and radish greens accompanies by small white beans. The joy of this dish is the speed and versatility. Any combination of greens (chard, kale, radish) and beans (white, black, pinto) would be yummy. Serve mashed and spread on a crusty whole-grain bread or over pasta.Submitted by ARIANERA

Chard and Lentil Pasta

Originally a slow-cooker recipe that I adapted back to stovetop use since lentils cook so quickly and I never seem to be home the right amount of time to make the slow-cooker work.Submitted by ARIANERA

Orzo with Roasted Radicchio

Orzo with Roasted Radicchio

I combined two recipes - one for roasted radicchio with one for an orzo salad with raw radicchio. I find raw radicchio to be too bitter, so I roasted it first to bring out the sweetness and make sure it was cooked through. I cook approximately, so am eyeballing the measurements I give here - you may need to add more olive oil if the measured recipe comes out too dry.Submitted by ARIANERA

Dandelion or Arugula Soup

Based on a recipe for dandelion soup, can be made with any bitter green. I made with an un-named bitter green from the CSA, but I'm sure it would be good with arugula or radiccio.Submitted by ARIANERA

Sweet Potato Stew

Adapted from http://www.fatfreevegan.com/stews/af-peanut.shtml

I used collards rather than the green-beans originally called for in the recipe included since that is what was included in the CSA box with all the sweet potatoes.Submitted by ARIANERA

Turkey White Chili
(no ratings)
Turkey White Chili

My favorite thing to make from the last shreds of meat from the turkey carcass. It's also good with leftover roast chicken. This version is very mild, but you can spice it up with Tabasco Sauce, Jalepenos or other hot peppers.

The secret to the dish is a nicely flavored low sodium stock - preferably home-made and flavored with cumin. The sodium content is probably lower, since the nutritional info includes sodium from the canned beans and hominy that should be removed during the preparation.Submitted by ARIANERA

Mina (Matzah Pie)

Sephardic Matzah Pie or Matzah Lasagna. Great use for all the extra parsley. The traditional recipe calls for ground lamb, more oil and more eggs.

While time-intensive to prepare, we have enjoyed Passover far more since discovering this recipe. Submitted by ARIANERA

Moussaka

Dairy-free moussaka adapted from The Book of Jewish Food by Claudia Rodan. The main change is to use lean ground turkey in place of ground lamb. Unlike the greek style moussaka, this recipe does not call for a Bechamel sauce. Submitted by ARIANERA
