Potato, Squash + Goat Cheese Goodness

21 Jul

Recipe originally from theKitchn.

  • 2 squashes, thinly sliced
  • 2 sweet potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 3T olive oil
  • salt + pepper
  • 1/4C milk
  • 1/3C grated parm
  • 1T chopped basil

Preheat oven to 400.

Toss sliced veggies with olive oil.

Pour a small drizzle of olive oil in a casserole dish (around 8 or 9 inches square) and spread it around the bottom and sides. Place 1/3 of the squash and potato slices in the bottom of the dish—no need to layer them squash-potato-squash-etc.—then season with salt and pepper. Top with half of the goat cheese, scattered evenly in large chunks. Repeat with another 1/3 of the vegetables, seasoning again with salt and pepper and topping with the other 1/2 of the goat cheese. Finish by layering on the final 1/3 of the vegetables and seasoning with salt and pepper.

Pour the milk over the entire dish. Top with the parmesan cheese. Bake, covered, for 30 minutes, then uncover and bake 15 more minutes, until the top browns. Scatter on the fresh basil, if using.

Sweet Potato + Kohlrabi Fritters

15 Jul

Based on a recipe found on The Root Cellar’s Garden.

  • a kohlrabi, shredded
  • a sweet potato, shredded
  • 1 T chives
  • 1 T scallions
  • small handful fresh sage
  • 1 T finely chopped almonds
  • 2 eggs
  • salt + pepper
  • hot sauce

Let the shredded kohlrabi sit, salted in a strainer in the sink while you prep everything else (10 min or so).  Squeeze out as much liquid from it as possible.  Then combine everything, form into patties, and fry in veggie oil.  Approximately 5 minutes on each side.  Drain excess oil.  Eat.
