Chipotle-Roasted Veggie Polenta Bowl with Truffled Eggs #FreshTastyValentines #sponsor #giveaway

This is a fantastic, hearty breakfast for your Valentine. And while I make some version of this at least once a month, this was the first time I used something other than olive oil to roast my veggies...and the first time I shaved black truffles on the top of the eggs.

Thanks to Fresh Tasty Valentines sponsor T.Lish Dressings, my veggies had a hint of chipotle. I used some broccolini from Mann Packingstirred some Gourmet Garden Herbs & Spices into the polenta, and topped it all with an egg and thin shavings of black truffle. Delectable and perfectly decadent for a special breakfast or brunch entree!


Roasted Veggies

  • delicata squash, halved, deseeded, and sliced
  • butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  • sweet potatoes, cubed
  • fennel, trimmed and sliced
  • broccolini from Mann Packing
  • Chipotle Vinaigrette & Marinade from T.Lish Dressings


  • 2 C polenta
  • 3 C warm chicken stock
  • 3 C warm water
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 T lightly dried parsley from Gourmet Garden
  • 2 T lightly dried basil from Gourmet Garden
  • 1/2 C shredded parmesan cheese


  • eggs, boiled to your preference
  • black truffles
  • fresh chopped parsley
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper


Roasted Veggies
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Place the delicata squash, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, and fennel in a large mixing bowl.

Pour in enough Chipotle Vinaigrette & Marinade from T.Lish Dressings to coat everything. Toss and turn out onto a parchment lined sheet in a single layer.

Slice the broccolini into 2" length and toss to coat with Chipotle Vinaigrette & Marinade. Turn the broccolini onto a parchment-lined sheet in a single layer.

Roast for 30 to 35 minutes, until the broccoloini is fork tender and the squash is nicely caramelized. Set aside until you're ready to plate.

Butter a baking dish and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all of the ingredients - except the herbs and cheese - together in a large mixing bowl. Then spoon everything into the baking dish. Bake for an hour, but stir it every twenty minutes. When it's finished, add herbs and cheese. Stir that together until the cheese is completely incorporated.

To Serve
Spoon the roasted veggies onto a plate. Scoop the polenta on top and lay a few more veggies on top. Peel and halve your eggs. Place them on top of the polenta. Shave black truffle slices on top of the egg and sprinkle with fresh parsley. Serve immediately. Che squisito!

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 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
