Oven Fries with Miso Mayonnaise #KitchenMatrixCookingProject


Another week, another recipe for the Kitchen Matrix Project, named after Mark Bittman's Kitchen Matrix cookbook. You can read about it: here. This month, I picked the recipes for the month am I'm very excited about the dishes and the bloggers who are joining me. And I am thrilled with how simple these recipes are to make. 

This week, I picked 'Miso+ 4 Ways' for the group. If you don't have the cookbook, Bittman's miso recipes are available online at the New York Times: here.

I had a tough time deciding because I was intrigued by the Miso Spice, Miso Butter, and - especially - the Miso Butterscotch! But I ran out of time this weekend, so those will be for another day. Stay tuned.

More Miso


Ingredients
slight adapted from Bittman because it was just "to mayo-y" according to my trio

Miso Mayo
  • 1/2 C mayonnaise
  • 1 T miso
  • 1 t soy sauce
  • 1/2 t sesame oil
Oven Fries
  • 4 to 5 organic potatoes, scrubbed
  • 1 T flour
  • olive oil
  • freshly ground salt
Procedure

Miso Mayo
Whisk everything together in a small mixing bowl until well-combined. Set aside.

Oven Fries
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Cut the potatoes into thick wedges, approximately 6 to 8 wedges per potato. Place the potatoes in a large mixing bowl. Add in the flour and shake the bowl to coat potatoes as evenly as possible. Turn the potatoes out onto the baking sheet in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Roast for 30 minutes until crisped on one side. Turn the potatoes over and return them to the oven for an additional 5 minutes.


Serve hot with miso mayo.

  1. Well, I'm glad you chose the themes you did this month because I have never worked with miso before but I must admit I was not overly impressed. I could only find red miso so perhaps that is why.

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

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

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!
