Roasted Carrot and Beet Frittatas

I decided to kick off the week with a dish that is always on my brunch table: frittatas. There are a couple of reasons for that. First, they are flexible; you can use whatever veggies and herbs you have on-hand. Second, they are easy; it take just a few minutes to put them together. And lastly, they taste great both warm or cold. So, you can pack them on a picnic or serve them fresh out of the oven a your dining room table.


For this version, I wanted to feature product from one of our generous event sponsors: Cabot Creamery Cooperative. They sent me multiple pounds of shredded cheeses for recipe development. For these, I went with their Vermont Sharp Cheddar Cheese.

Ingredients makes two 9" frittata, easily halved for one

Roasted Veggies

  • organic carrots, halved lengthwise
  • organic baby beets, quartered lengthwise
  • organic fennel bulb, thickly sliced
  • olive oil
  • Also needed: baking sheet

Frittata

  • 1 dozen eggs
  • 1/4 C heavy cream
  • 1 T fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 T snipped fresh chives
  • 1 T fresh dill + more for garnish
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 2 C shredded cheese (prefer Cabot)
  • Also needed: two 9" round baking pans


Procedure

Roasted Veggies
Preheat oven to 400°F. Toss the veggies with olive oil and arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes until they are fork tender. Remove from the oven and set aside. Keep the carrots and beets that size. Once the fennel is cool enough to handle, dice them.

Frittata
Reduce heat on the oven to 350°F.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, herbs, salt, and pepper. Fold in the cheese and 1/2  C diced fennel and divide evenly between your baking pans.


Arrange roasted carrots (and beets) on the frittata and place on a baking sheet. Place sheet in the oven and bake, uncovered, until the eggs are firmed up, approximately 40 minutes.


To serve, transfer from baking pans to serving platters. Arrange another layer of roasted veggies on top and garnish with fresh dill.

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
