Rhubarb-Ricotta Tart


And my rhubarb crush continues...yesterday I made a ricotta tart with rhubarb for breakfast. The boys were so excited!

Ingredients 

For the Crust
  • 1-1/2 C Bob's Red Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour*
  • 1/2 C Bob's Red Mill Hazelnut Meal Flour
  • 1/2 C softened butter
  • 1/2 C organic powdered sugar
  • 1/4 C olive oil
  • 1 T cold water
  • 2 pinches of fleur de sel
*I received complimentary bags of the whole wheat pastry flour and hazelnut meal flour from Bob's Red Mill for participating in the #BrunchWeek 2014 event coming up in May.

For the Filling
  • 2 C whole milk ricotta
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 C organic brown sugar + 1 T
  • 1/4 C raw honey
  • 1 t ground cinnamon
  • 2 rhubarb stalks
Procedure
For the Crust
Mix the whole wheat pastry flour, hazelnut meal flour, sugar and salt; rub in the butter with olive oil until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in 1 tablespoon of water with a fork until the mixture forms a ball. Chill until firm. Roll out between two pieces of parchment paper. Press gently into the tart pan. Stick in the freezer while the oven heats. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350, or until a light golden brown. Let cool completely.

For the Filling
Stir together all of the ingredients except for the rhubarb stalks. Cut the rhubarb stalks into radius-length of your tart pan. Slice them lengthwise into two of three pieces per stalk. Toss the stalks with 1 T of sugar. Spoon the ricotta mixture into the baked tart crust. Gently press the sugar-coated rhubarb into the top. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes - until the ricotta is set and the rhubarb is softened. Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing. This can be eaten warm or cold.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
