One Pan Brussels Sprout and Red Lentil Pie with a Root Vegetable Crust

December 27 2017 Golubka Kitchen 

This post was created in partnership with USA Pulses and Pulse Canada. Since this is our last recipe of 2017, we wanted to make sure that it’s a special one. It needed to check all the boxes we usually try to check with our recipes: nourishing, delicious, seasonal, beautiful, convenient, and a little bit unexpected. This veggie and lentil-centered one pan pie is all of those things. It’s very cozy and fun to prepare, too. If I had a choice, most of my savory dishes would be one-pan dishes :) Convenience is hard to beat. That little bit of initial effort you put into assembling all the ingredients for a single-pan dish pays off incredibly well when you end up with a big meal, plus a ton of leftovers for the week, having only used one pan or pot in the process. This one-pan dish is something like a vegetable pot pie, but the crust is made up of thinly mandolined winter roots – potatoes, sweet potatoes, and celery root. The filling is shredded Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, and red lentils (you can add barley, too, for a grain component) that cooks in a mixture of healing spices and coconut milk. The whole thing is packed with a great variety of plants. It’s perfect for those looking to up their intake of vegetables after the holidays, but still wanting to keep their cooking hearty and cozy. The ingredient that takes this dish into the complete meal category are the red lentils. Vegetable dishes are great on their own, but adding any kind of pulses (lentils, beans, chickpeas, dry peas) to your plant-centric meals will up their nutrition and ability to satisfy quite a bit. Pulses are incredibly nutrient-dense, like superfoods, but they are also very affordable, unlike most other superfoods, so it’s a win-win all around. Try adding about a half a cup of pulses to your meals a few times a week – your cooking will greatly benefit from them, and you’ll be on your way to discovering a whole new world of deliciousness (of you haven’t already, of course). Head here for more of our recipes using pulses, and be sure to check out Half Cup Habit. Happy New Year! Thank you so much for visiting GK, trying out our recipes, and reading up on the self-care series.

Chef David Burke Serves Up the New Year

January 9 2017 Meatless Monday 

Chef David Burke Serves Up the New Year There are points in your career where you start to cook the way you want to eat; thats where I am now. – Chef David Burke David Burke is world-renowned as a chef, artist, entrepreneur, cookbook author, innovator and inventor. In 2009, he won the James Beard Award for Whos Who of Food & Beverage in America and was twice nominated earlier for Best Chefs in America. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and a student at the École Lenôtre Pastry School in Plaisir, France, his 30-year career includes opening over a dozen celebrated restaurants.  David is often recognized from his TV appearances on Bravos Top Chef Masters, NBCs TODAY Show and as a featured guest on Rachael Rays Every Day Show. In 2015, David joined ESquared Hospitality as a Culinary Partner to open new restaurants nationwide including his latest restaurant, Tavern62 by David Burke which opened in October 2016 on New York Citys Upper East Side. For our first interview of the New Year, we sat down with David to ask whats currently on his plate.   Its the beginning of a New Year, a time when many are making a fresh start and making resolutions about diet and nutrition. What are some easy ideas to incorporate more vegetables and fruits into a daily diet? Have pre-cut fruit and vegetables ready in your refrigerator and make olive oil-based dipping sauces for them. Winter is a good time to make vegetable soups and stews. I would also recommend buying an Indian cookbook (lay off spices if you dont like heat) to get inspiration for vegetarian dishes. Are there any professional secrets or tips you can share on your favorite ways to prepare vegetables? I like to slowly sauté my vegetables. Cut them smaller and add olive oil, onion, and garlic, then let them caramelize. That works for home fries, a vegetable hash, a filling for a pasta, a purée, or the base of a soup. When youre cooking at home or for friends, what are some of your favorite meatless dishes? Pasta. Cous Cous. Eggplant Parmesan. Stuffed Zucchini Boats. Couch potatoes, which we serve at BLT Prime by David Burke. Cabbage is also really underrated. Chef David Burke’s Couch Potatoes   At your new restaurant Tavern62 by David Burke, what winter vegetables are you looking forward to using and where do you source them from? Salsify, parsnips, parsley root, celery root, butternut squash, kale, and cabbage. We source produce from the Hunts Point Produce Market. Sustainable foods are a topic of discussion these days. What are your thoughts on the subject and why is this important? With any good business comes responsibility. Responsibility of keeping a sustainable supply is important for the future. Your restaurants are typically meat heavy or meat-centric. Why are you interested in supporting and participating in Meatless Monday? My restaurants are designed for great business that highlight hospitality and give our customers what they want. My personal choice and vision for the future is to start segueing into more vegetarian-centric and healthy eating options because no matter what other food trends come and go, customers being more aware of what goes into their food is a trend that will only continue to grow. I think we go through cycles. There are points in your career where you start to cook the way you want to eat; thats where I am now.   The post Chef David Burke Serves Up the New Year appeared first on Meatless Monday.

Winter Root and Fennel Soup with Greens and Caramelized Cauliflower

December 11 2016 Golubka Kitchen 

Winter Root and Fennel Soup with Greens and Caramelized Cauliflower Since winter in the northern hemisphere is most definitely in full swing, we thought it was time for another quick, creamy winter soup recipe that’s nourishing and warming to the core. This one’s got a balance of grounding winter roots like celeriac and parsnip with some brighter, crisper veggies like spinach and fennel, finished off with a kiss of lemon. The roasted cauliflower pieces that stud each bowl are cooked in a special, sweet and spicy dressing that helps create those caramelized edges we are all so fond of. Eating this soup during this time of year just feels right – it’s incredibly cozy and feeds both body and soul. This soup is stunning enough in looks to serve as a starter to a festive meal, so we encourage you to get radical and serve green soup at your holiday party :) There are some weekend links after the jump, have a cozy Sunday.

Schnippelbohnensuppe {Green Bean Soup}

September 2 2015 seitan is my motor 

Schnippelbohnensuppe {Green Bean Soup}Hello all, welcome to the second day of Vegan Mofo 2015. Today’s promt is: I am pretty sure that my grandmother’s Schnippelbohnensuppe was one of my favourite foods when I was a kid. (Schnippeln is a verb, it means to chop or cut up vegetables, but the verb sometimes also refers to cutting something with scissors.) But although I always loved green beans, I probably didn’t like this soup because it had beans. I liked it because it had sausages. My grandmother put smoked sausage (called mettwurst) in there and they contributed most of the flavour. Although I really do not miss meat, I couldn’t live without the combination of smoky and salty. I am thankful there are things like liquid smoke and smoked salt to stand in for the sausages I used to eat. I freely admit that I put a vegan sausage into my soups here and there, too. I don’t really get the hate that is directed at these products sometimes. Meat eaters telling me I shouldn’t eat them, vegetarians telling me I shouldn’t eat them and even vegans who tell me this and refuse to eat “fake” meats with a passion. Sure, they are processed. Sure, they have a lot of salt. So what? You can eat them once in a while. Also, please don’t tell me I shouldn’t eat sausages and other plant based meat products because I swore off meat. Exactly. I swore off meat. I never swore of sausage shaped seitan or tofu. It’s plant based. It’s not different from plant based cheeses or plant based milks which never get that amount of hate. So, if you have access to smoky vegan sausages or something like this Merguez that would be a great mettwurst substitute. For this soup, I still used smoked tofu (which can be substituted with any kind of your favourite sausage) because more accessible, I hope. Print Schnippelbohnensuppe {Green Bean Soup} 2 servings Ingredients2 tablespoons oil 100g (3.5 oz) smoked tofu, cubed 50 g (1/­­2 cup) finely sliced leeks 70 g (1/­­2 cup) celeriac (celery root), cubed 280 g (3 small) potatoes, cubed 1 carrot, sliced into thin rounds 350 - 400 g (13 - 14 oz) fresh runner or other green beans, cut into bite-size pieces 480 ml (2 cups) water 1-2 teaspoons fresh rosemary 1 teaspoon smoked salt, or to taste salt and pepper to taste InstructionsHeat the oil in a large pot. Add tofu and fry for five minutes. Add vegetables and fry for another five minutes. Pour water into the pot and add rosemary. Cook for 10 minutes and add smoked salt.

Meatless Monday Class at Eataly a Delicious Experience

February 23 2015 Meatless Monday 

Meatless Monday Class at Eataly a Delicious Experience Eataly is not just an incredible emporium filled with exquisite food and wine from Italy. Its not just a collection of wonderful restaurants, bakeries, coffee bars and gelato stands. Its also a school. And this past Monday we got a delicious lesson in Italian cuisine, Meatless Monday style, from Chef Nicoletta Grippo.  As Eataly says in their manifesto , Here, you won’t just discover what you love, you’ll also learn about what you love.  Chef Nicoletta grew up in a large Italian family, the oldest of nine children. They kept a huge vegetable garden, with heirloom seeds going back many generations. What they had for dinner was frequently decided by what was freshest in the garden. She still uses that approach, often starting at the local farmers market and letting what looks fresh and intriguing be her inspiration. While Eataly is all about Italian cuisine and traditions, they also strongly believe in supporting local farmers. The first dish Chef Nicoletta showed us how to prepare was a Frittata, which can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and in any season. The frittata is a blank canvas, she said, which you can add any vegetables to, depending what is in season.Being winter, she turned to root vegetables - potatoes and onions. The chef emphasized how important it is to use quality ingredients, and that a small amount of freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano has more flavor than a cup or two of the parmesan cheese in the containers. While a frittata can be made completely on the stovetop, she recommended finishing it in the oven to add volume. That made it beautiful to look at as well as delicious to eat. Our next Meatless Monday treat was Pansotti Stuffed with Ricotta & Spinach in Walnut sauce. She began by explaining how easy it is to make homemade dough, and showing us how to stretch it until its paper thin. Her tips for cooking pasta: put salt in the pasta water but not olive oil - if you dont want the pasta to stick just keep stirring it; never rinse pasta or you lose the starches that help bind the sauce; and remove the pasta when its still aldente, so its still thirsty and will hold the sauce. It did seem like just the right amount of her exquisite walnut sauce was on every delicious pansotti. The pi?ce de résistance: an Artichoke Tart. Artichokes scare a lot of people, said our chef, but once you get to know them, theyre great with pizza, pasta, in salads, or in a tart. One tip: keep artichokes looking good by putting them in cold water with a squeeze of lemon. While assembling the tart she talked to us about ugly vegetables like artichokes, beet greens, and celery root, and how they are really hidden treasures. While Chef Nicoletta touted the benefits of Meatless Monday for the environment and personal health, you could tell that shes most passionate about Meatless Monday for the opportunities it affords to try more vegetables. Its also clear she loves teaching people about new vegetables and new dishes they can try. This was the job I made up in my head when I thought about what I wanted to do.  And now I get to do it. If you are ever in New York City, dont miss the chance to go to Eataly. If its a Monday see if you can join their Meatless Monday cooking class. Until then, you can try their wonderful recipe for Pansotti con Sugo di Noci, courtesy of Eataly and Chef Nicoletta. As they say in their manifesto, Good food brings all of us together and helps us find a common point of view. We believe that one of the greatest sources of joy is what happens around a dinner table. Buon appetito!  Every Monday! The post Meatless Monday Class at Eataly a Delicious Experience appeared first on Meatless Monday.

Double Chocolate Layer Cake and a Giveaway

December 7 2014 Golubka Kitchen 

Double Chocolate Layer Cake and a Giveaway Today I’d like to talk about At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen, a book I’ve been cooking from non-stop since getting my copy. You may be familiar with author Amy Chaplin’s work through her beautiful blog, where she shares some of the most practical and creative natural foods recipes around. As for her cookbook, I feel as if anything I say about it will be an understatement: it’s wise and useful beyond words, as well as visually stunning, with photography by Johnny Miller. The book’s vastness and wealth of fascinating recipes and tips has me reaching for it daily. Some of the dishes I’ve made include Cherry Coconut Granola, Cauliflower and Celery Root Soup, Eggplant Curry, Almond Butter Brownies, Chocolate Hazelnut Layer Cake. To complete my love serenade for Amy’s book, I made this decadent cake. I played with the original recipe a bit, making the ganache white, while Amy’s is chocolate. I also added chocolate into the batter, while the original recipe only calls for cacao. I also previously made the original one and loved it as well. Amy and I share the same publisher, and the nice people at Roost Books were generous to send me an additional copy of At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen to give away. To enter, leave a comment here until December 14th, 2014. Good luck to all!

Peak Season: Rutabaga

October 23 2014 Vegetarian Times 

Peak Season: Rutabaga The mildly peppery rutabaga bears a family resemblance to the turnip, which has a sharper bite; both belong to the cruciferous clan, whose members include broccoli and cabbage. Pick Choose rutabagas that are heavy for their size and free of soft spots or sprouts; naturally occurring crevices around the top are normal. In stores, rutabagas are often coated in a food-grade wax to reduce dehydration and prolong shelf life. For a better guarantee of freshness, Sharon Funderburk of Beartrack Farm in Turkey, N.C., suggests seeking out unwaxed rutabagas at farmers markets. Rutabagas will last up to six months when stored in a cool, dark, slightly damp place like a root cellar or unheated garage. They can also be stored in your fridge crisper, in a plastic bag with some ventilation to discourage sprouting, Funderburk says. Prep Trim the ends and remove the skin with a sharp vegetable peeler. Chunks of rutabaga can be steamed or boiled, then mashed ?just like potatoes, says Funderburk. Roasting elevates the veggies natural sweetness. Rutabaga also can be enjoyed raw, grated into ?salads or slaws. Rutabagas mild-tasting green tops are perfectly edible, but should be stored separately from their roots, Funderburk advises. Try This o Combine shredded rutabaga, flour, and eggs; form into patties, pan-fry, and top with apple chutney. o Thinly slice rutabaga, ?and stir-fry until crisp and tender; toss with cooked pasta, sliced pear, and baby kale. o Toss together chopped rutabaga, grapeseed oil, maple syrup, salt, and cayenne; roast until tender. o Simmer together rutabaga cubes, chopped carrot, and sliced leeks; purée with fresh oregano and chipotle chile pepper for a smoky-tasting soup. o Steam rutabaga until tender, and whip with butter, Dijon mustard, and orange zest. o Grate together rutabaga, celery root, and carrot; toss with raisins and a honey vinaigrette for a slaw. o Julienne rutabaga, toss with zaatar spice mixture, and bake until crisp and tender for veggie fries.

ORIENTAL MAPLE-GLAZED CARROTS ON POTATO-CELERY MASH i'm a huge lover of mashed potatoes. it's just childhood memory. how about you? i like to add celery to mine. have you ever tried that duo? if not, you definitely should. if so, you should do it again. that both earthy and nutty flavour - it's quite unbeatable. these maple-glazed carrots works well to the potato-celery mash. a well-balanced composition of flavours, you'll see! and a perfect dish so say hello to this autumn season. by the way, you can easily make that meal vegan by replacing ghee by olive oil or another plant oil of your choice. but: these days ghee is my newest addiction. you can use it to fry nearly everything and only that smell .. wow! ORIENTAL MAPLE-GLAZED CARROTS ON POTATO-CELERY MASH |serves 2| ingredients maple-glazed carrots: 500g (baby) carrots, washed, peeled + quartered lengthwise 2 tbsp olive oil 1 tbsp ghee 1 tsp cumin 1 tsp coriander 1 tbsp maple syrup 1 tsp lemon juice sea salt & freshly ground black pepper  potato-celery mash: 250 g potatoes (primarily waxy), washed, peeled + chunky diced 200 g celery root, peeled + chunky diced 150 ml rice milk 1 tbsp ghee (or butter) 1 garlic clove, finely grated a pinch of nutmeg sea salt & freshly ground black pepper  a few stems of fresh cilantro to serve, washed, dried + coarsely chopped optional: avocado, cut into slices, drizzled with lemon juice, seasoned with sea salt & freshly cracked black pepper instructions maple-glazed carrots: preheat oven to 225°.  place baby carrots on a non-stick baking sheet. properly sprinkle them with olive oil. season with cumin, coriander, sea salt & freshly ground black pepper. mix well. roast carrots, tossing halfway through and drizzling with , until tender, about 20 minutes. meanwhile, heat ghee, maple syrup and lemon juice in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until everything is well combined.  drizzle that warm honey mixture over carrots and toss to coat. (i recommend you beginning to roast the carrots once the potatoes begin to boil, and beginning to glaze the carrots as soon as you finished the mash, so that both is ready to serve at the same time.) potato-celery mash: place potatoes and celery root in a saucepan with enough slightly salted water to cover, bring to a boil over high heat. reduce to a simmer, and cook until tender, about 15-20 minutes. drain, return to saucepan and place over low heat to dry out. combine rice milk, ghee, grated garlic, nutmeg, salt and pepper in a small saucepan and place over medium heat until mixture comes to a simmer. pour that mixture over potato-celery mix and combine everything, using a potato masher, until fluffy and smooth. to serve place potato-celery mash each in the middle a soup plate, arrange maple-glazed carrots on top of the mash, sprinkle with fresh cilantro and place avocado on the edge of each plate.
