Shaved yellow beets & fennel salad

I love trying new kinds of salads, but shaved fennel and yellow beets are my all time favorite and with a mandolin it takes less than 15 minutes to create.

With this salad, I start with fennel and beets, but this salad is also great if you add other shaved root vegetables and some cucumber as well. Some additions I’ve tried include: cucumber, carrots, red beets, candy cane beets, radishes, kohlrabi, celery. They’re all great!

The thing that makes this salad is, (as usual) the dressing. I usually encourage substitutions, but this dijon vinaigrette is a MUST have.

If you like our shaved fennel and yellow beet salad, you should also try our: Tabouli Recipe.

As with all of my recipes, measurements are NOT important. I always urge you to taste as you go and use your instincts.  You know what you like!

Instructions
Salad
  1. After washing the beets thoroughly, use a mandolin (or sharp knife) to shave thin and add to a bowl. No need to shave the beets - leave the skin on.
  2. Cut the tops off the fennel and shave thin using a mandolin (or sharp knife) If the outer layer of fennel is tough and dry - remove and discard first.
  3. Chop parsley & pick fennel leaves and add to salad.
  4. Season with salt & pepper
Dijon Vinaigrette Dressing
  1. To a mason jar or sealable container - Add all ingredients.
  2. Season heavily with kosher salt & pepper. Seal & shake.
  3. Taste to ensure that the dressing is not too tart or too oily. Adjust as needed.
Recipe Notes

Be sure to season at every step and taste as you go!

This dressing can be made in a large batch and kept in the fridge (virtually forever). Then you can enjoy it on this and other salads.

I also love this dressing on roasted veggies as well!

Seared Bass with Brown Butter, Roasted Grapes & Capers

This dish uses the Searing Method.

This seared bass dish will be done in 15 minutes and yet make you feel fancy and special while you eat it.

The seared bass melts in your mouth, while the sweetness of the roasted grapes and the tangy earthy butter and caper make you want to dance.

In fact…you should dance. And drink wine and laugh with your family while you eat this meal. It’s divine.

You might be thinking….Roasted grapes!? What the hell?

I’m telling you…It’s AMAZING!

By throwing the grapes in your hot pan, you blister the skin and deepen their sweetness. It’s a perfect pairing to the sweet bass flavor.

Since the sauce is made in the same pan, you won’t even have dishes to clean at the end of it all!

And if you re not a fish fan, this sauce is also delicious on some seared chicken as well.

As with all of my recipes, measurements are NOT important. I always urge you to taste as you go and use your instincts.  You know what you like!

Instructions
  1. Dry the skin of your fish with a paper or cloth towel. Then, season the fish with salt & pepper on the flesh side only. This will keep it dry and help with the browning later.
  2. Add oil to your pan and turn the heat on high to get it smoking hot.
  3. Once your oil begins to smoke, add your fish skin side down.
  4. Using a spatula or your fingers, GENTLY press the fish against the pan. Pressing and releasing every 2-3 seconds until the flesh begins to relax. The fish will automatically curl and tense when it hits the pan. By gently pressing on the skin, this will aide it in making contact with the pan and browning until it's naturally ready to relax.
  5. Turn heat down to medium high and let cook 2-3 minutes.
  6. Add butter & thyme
  7. Using a spoon, baste the fish with the butter as it begins to brown and bubble. Do this until the skins flesh is no longer translucent. Remove fish from pan.
  8. Add the grapes to the pan and let cook 1 minute.
  9. Add all the other ingredients & season with salt & pepper.
  10. Remove the thyme sprigs and spoon the sauce over the fish to enjoy!

Ingredients


Servings: people

Instructions
  1. Clean and chop leaks and potatoes.
    There is no need to peel the potatoes if you have ones with thin skin.

  2. Chop garlic & pull thyme leaves

  3. In a large stock pot, warm 2T butter and 1/4 olive oil together.

  4. Add leeks & garlic and season with salt & pepper. Cook until soft and slightly browned. About 10 minutes.

  5. Add potatoes & thyme and season again with more salt & pepper.
    Saute everything together for another 10 minutes until very soft and browned.

    Most of your cooking of the soup will be at this stage. Sauteing the ingredients together in this way will build and deepen flavor.

  6. Add vegetable stock and finish cooking potatoes until falling apart soft. Season again with salt & pepper and taste.

  7. Add 1 cup milk and 2 T butter and cook for 5 minutes.

  8. Blend in a blender or with a stick (immersion) blender. Give the soup a final taste and season if necessary.

    Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Be sure to season at every step and taste as you go!

Because this recipe has potato and dairy, it will absorb the salt more readily and require a bit more salt than other soups.

Choosing your potato: Yukon Gold potatoes have great flavor, which is why I've selected them for this recipe. However, DO NOT go crazy searching for them if they're not right in front of you at the market. You can choose any thin skinned potato and it will work well.

I recommend not getting thick skinned potatoes for two reasons.

1) The are not as flavorful

2) You'll have the extra step of peeling them

Instructions
  1. First combine date paste and oats. Use your hands to seriously smoosh the ingredients together and make sure they are totally incorporated. When you break the mixture in half you should see oats laced throughout the date paste.
  2. Add the honey & coconut oil and mix thoroughly. These ingredients will smooth out our base and get it ready for the flavorful ingredients
  3. Once you have mixed the base, add your other seeds/nuts/dried fruit and combine. If your ingredients are not sticking, then you need more date paste. Feel free to add as needed. If your mixture is too filled with date past and not balanced - ass more oats and seeds.
  4. Once mixture is done, line a baking sheet with parchment paper & press the mixture in the pan. Cover with parchment and press more.
  5. Place in the fridge for 20 minutes before cutting into bars. Kids also like to make their own shapes or balls. Simply use parchment to help shape and prevent sticking.

Winter Squash Soup

Winter squash Soup

Getting a variety of Winter squash in the Fall months is my favorite! Winter squash keep outside the fridge for what seems like ever and are so great for adding some depth and warmth to any dish.

This Winter squash soup is very simple and fast AND like so many of The Connected Chef recipes, can be batch made and frozen for another week’s meal. I love working smarter, not harder. 🙂

This recipe uses Butternut Squash, but feel free to swap that out for any other Winter squash you have available. (Kombucha, Acorn, Carnival, Pumpkin, ect.)

As with all of my recipes, measurements are NOT important. I always urge you to taste as you go and use your instincts.  You know what you like!

Recipe Notes

Ingredients to prep ahead: 

  • All vegetables can be prepped ahead of time
  • When storing precut veggies, be sure to store them in an airtight container. You can also store them together based on the stages that they are used in the recipes. (i.e. onions/garlic in 1 container, squash/herbs in a separate container)
  • Brown Butter can also be done ahead and stored in a mason jar or other air tight container - I actually love making a giant batch of brown butter and storing it in my fridge. It's a great flavor boost in so many recipes.

Veggie ragout with creamy cheese polenta

ragout

This Veggie Ragout & creamy polenta makes me feel SO warm and cozy as the weather gets colder.

By building flavors and adding ingredients in layers, you will find that this Ragout will give you both depth of flavor and a bright surprise at the end with the addition of some vinegar.

Make a double batch and freeze half to keep for another day. It will always make you happy when you are scrambling to figure out dinner and you remember you have a delicious homemade meal in the freezer waiting for you.

As for leftovers – I ALWAYS eat any extra polenta with my eggs in the morning. YUM!

The Polenta can be made with vegetable stock and no cheese to make this a yummy vegan dish as well.

As with all of my recipes, measurements are NOT important. I always urge you to taste as you go and use your instincts.  If you don’t like an ingredient or want to swap for another vegetable – Go for it! You know what you like!

Instructions
Ragout
  1. Chop all your vegetables to the same size and set aside Keep onion & garlic separate from other veggies
  2. Heat a pan to with olive oil using low heat. Add onion, garlic with salt & pepper. Cook until soft.
  3. Add all other veggies (except spinach & parsley)
  4. Season with paprika, gr. coriander, salt & pepper & cook for about 3-5 min. until the veggies begin to soften.
  5. Add red wine to deglaze the pan and cook down for another 3-5 min.
  6. Add canned tomato and crush tomato with spoon or hands (I like to use my hands :)) Let cook for another 3-5 min.
  7. Add bay leaf & chick peas and re-season with spices and salt & pepper to taste.
  8. Cook down at a simmer (uncovered) for about 20min. You want the vegetables to be soft, but not mushy. The ragout sauce should be a bit thick & have a deep flavor, similar to that of a stew.
  9. Finish with chopped spinach & parsley
Cheese Polenta
  1. Add 3 cups of milk & 2 cups of water & stick of butter to a medium sauce pan and warm.
  2. Once liquid is warm, season with salt to taste & add polenta
  3. Allow to cook on medium heat for 20 minutes, while stirring occasionally. As the polenta thickens and cooks you will need to stir more often.
  4. As the polenta cooks, it will likely need more liquid before it is completely cooked through. Add more milk as necessary throughout the cooking process.
  5. Taste the polenta as you go and it will begin to soften. Once cooked, add cheese. *The cheese will thicken the polenta more, so if you need to add a bit of milk to it to thin it out a bit, go right ahead!
  6. Re-season with salt & black pepper and enjoy Your final polenta should be smooth and creamy.
Recipe Notes

Items that can be prepared ahead:

  • chop vegetables
  • polenta

*Essentially, this is a great meal to make a few days ahead and the flavors will just get better as it sits.

To make this dish vegan - use vegetable stock instead of milk & leave out the butter. If you like coconut flavor, you can finish the polenta with some coconut butter (not oil).

Lemon Chicken

  • Using the BRAISING method, this is the perfect one pot meal.

It requires minimal prep and cooks without needing much attention. That means it’s great for a week night or a busy day with your kids. It’s also a meal that can be adjusted to be made in a Crockpot or Instapot.

I used to make this recipe for family meal when I worked for David Burke in his UES restaurants. It was always a hit and a welcomed variation from the mundane, slapped together meals we were used to scarfing down as busy cooks.

This recipe was nicknamed “Long Island Chicken” because it’s a riff off of  the Lemon Chicken my grandma used to make me as a kid. I don’t have many childhood dishes, but this is definitely one of them.

As with all of my recipes, measurements are NOT important. I always urge you to taste as you go and use your instincts.  You know what you like!

  5. Add lemons, juice and halves pieces. Throw it all in there! 🙂

  8. Finish with Kale and chopped parsley at the very end and cook 3-4 minutes.
Recipe Notes

Items that can be prepped ahead:

  • Cut veggies and herbs
  • half and juice lemons

Pro Tip: When storing prepped veggies, store them based on the stage that they are added in the recipe. If you are adding a bunch of veggies together in 1 step, they can be stored together.

  • store onion/garlic/peppers/thyme together
  • halve and squeeze you lemons into a container and save for cook time. Then you just need to dump and move on.

Recipe Notes

Remember: taste as you go and look for balanced flavors.

When tasting you should get an even amount of ginger & garlic. The honey should balance the saltiness of the soy & the citrus should be in the forefront, but not overwhelming.

If your sauce is too salty, balance with more honey and citrus juice. If it's too citrusy, add a bit more soy and drop of honey.

Instructions
Cream Biscuits
  1. Place a layer of parchment paper across the bottom and up 2 sides of an 8x8-inch pan. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients until combined.
  3. Pour in all but 1/4 cup of the cream.
  4. Stir until the dough is shaggy, then add the remaining cream and stir to combine.
  5. Knead the dough: Turn the dough out onto a well-floured work surface. Knead the dough for about 30 seconds, just until it all comes together.
  6. Shape dough into a rectangle, about 12 inches long and 4 inches wide.
  7. Cut it in half lengthwise, then cut each piece into 4 pieces horizontally. Place each of the pieces in the prepared pan.
  8. Transfer the pan to the oven, and bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until golden
Strawberry Jam
  1. Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan
  2. Heat on medium heat and stir occasionally
  3. Cook berries 20-25 minutes. Strawberries will begin to stew and cook down. You will notice more liquid in the pot as the berries cook.
  4. Taste your strawberries. You are looking for a strong flavor. If it seems a bit bland and not full flavor, they may need to cook a bit more.
  5. Once strawberries are soft and flavorful they are ready. Remove from heat and blend with a blender or food processor until desired smoothness. (Some people like it a bit chunky, others enjoy a completely smooth jam)
  6. Optional: strain through a mess strainer
  7. Let cool and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

[recipe]For time efficiency - I would get the jam started first and then work on the biscuits. This way the jam can stew while you make and bake the biscuits.

The jam is going to be a little non-traditional because it calls for WAY less sugar than a traditional jam. It will be full flavored non-the-less. However, don't be alarmed by a more loose consistency than usual store bought jam.
