#10DaysofTailgate: Grilled Clash of the Seasons Panzanella


On this final day of #10DaysofTailgate, I decided to do a double-post to squeeze in just one more recipe with a thank you for another sponsor Mr. Bar-B-Q*. I was trying to create a good recipe to highlight their stainless steel mesh grill skillet...and I finally did it. Eureka!

Dear readers, enter the giveaway (below) to see if you can win a grill skillet, a grill cover with the collegiate team logo of your choosing, and a propane tank refill.

Panzanella is a Tuscan salad that I normally make during the summertime, showcasing sweet tomatoes from friends' gardens and our High Ground Organics CSA. I had seen 'grilled panzanella' on a menu somewhere and decided to create my own version with some late summer tomatoes and early autumn oyster mushrooms. Hence the 'clash of the seasons.' Summer produce collides with Autumn. The grill skillet allowed me to toast the bread cubes over a grill and add some amazing smoky flavor without mangling my bread cubes on skewers or losing them between the grill slats.


Ingredients 
  • 5 C cubed bread (I used a sourdough loaf)
  • 5 shallots, peeled and quartered lengthwise
  • 3 T fresh parsley, chopped
  • olive oil
  • freshly ground salt
  • 2 C oyster mushrooms
  • 1/2 C asparagus, chopped into 1/2" pieces
  • white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 C wild arugula leaves
  • 2 C tomatoes, cubed
Procedure
Preheat your grill.

In a large mixing bowl, toss the bread cubes, shallots, and parsley with salt and olive oil. In another mixing bowl, toss the oyster mushrooms and asparagus with salt and olive oil.

In your grill pan or skillet, grill the bread till it's nicely toasted. Remove the bread to a mixing bowl.


Spoon the mushrooms and asparagus into the skillet and grill till slightly softened. Spoon that mixture into the same bowl as the bread. Add in the tomatoes and arugula. toss to coat with a drizzle of olive oil and white balsamic vinegar. Serve immediately.

Caulibits Crni Rižoto (Croatian Black "Risotto") #Whole30

Last week, I participated in the Wine Pairing Weekend event 'New Year, New Wine." I paired Crni Rižoto with Dingac Vinarija’s Pelješac...and you can read my post: here . I was pouring a Croatian wine and decided to make a traditional Croatian dish. Every seafood restaurant in Croatia has a  Crni Rižoto  (black risotto) on its menu.  Crni Rižoto  is risotto dyed black with squid ink; I used cuttlefish ink for the same effect. However, since arborio rice is not Whole30 compliant, I made a version for myself that used caulibits instead of rice. Ingredients 1 C fish stock (or a combination of fish stock and vegetable stock) 1 T olive oil 1 medium shallots, peeled and minced 1 cloves garlic, crushed and minced 1/4 lb shrimp 1/4 lb squid tubes, cleaned and sliced into rings 1/4 lb scallops 1/4 lb clams, scrubbed 1/4 lb mussels, scrubbed 4 C caulibits, or chopped cauliflower 1 T fresh parsley, minced juice and zest from 1 organic lemon 1 t cuttlefish ink

This month the French Winophiles group is looking at affordable wines from Burgundy.  Host Cindy of Grape Experiences wrote: "Burgundy, or Bourgogne, is known for its wines of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir... as well as Aligote, Gamay, Sauvignon, César, Pinot Beurot, Sacy, Melon in lesser quantities. Many of the well-known wines are quite expensive, but there are plenty of values to be found." Read her invitation here. And there won't be a Twitter chat for this event, so you will have to dive into the articles themselves to read about our pairings and findings. Here's the line-up...
