I love the delicate flavour of leek and mushroom pie, it is satisfying on it’s own or when paired with bacon or chicken. Serve it with a salad and some roasted veg and you have a balanced, nutritious meal. A note about leeks: because they…
Month: April 2018
- 6 rashers smoked bacon (I used Applewood smoked bacon, drool…sorry)
- 1 large vidalia onion diced (or yellow onion will do)
- 1 large yellow bell pepper diced
- 3 cloves of fresh garlic minced
- 1 tsp seasoning salt (I used Old Bay)
- 1 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 big bunch collard greens washed & cut
- 1 big bunch of cabbage sprouts
- 1 C chicken broth
- 3 – medium sized turnips peeled & chopped into chunks
- Clean the greens well. I double soaked them. Trim the ends off the ends to get rid of any super tough stalks and Chop into bite sized pieces. You are going to cook the bejesus out of these suckers so some stalk is okay.
- Chop the bacon into bite sized pieces and place in a deep sided saute pan.
- Cook bacon over medium heat and when it starts to brown add the onions, yellow pepper, and minced garlic.
- Stir the ingredients, then start adding the greens. You may need to let them cook down a bit as you go to make room. Be patient, they will wilt.
- Once all the greens are in the pot, pour in the chicken broth.
- Add the red pepper flakes, seasoning salt, and black pepper. Give it a good stir.
- Stir in the apple cider vinegar.
- Reduce the heat from medium to low, put a lid on the pan, and let the greens simmer for 1 hour.
- Add in the turnips, stir, cover and let the works cook for another 30 minutes.
Serves 4-6 people.
I finally got around to roasting up the stripetti squash that came with my first bin from Organivores. A stripetti squash is a cross between a spaghetti squash and a delicata squash (apparently). In my opinion, the taste and texture are pretty much the same…
