Side Dishes
Sautéed Kale & Onions
(presented by Robin Migalla at the September 2005 meeting)

1 bunch of fresh kale with any yellow or discolored leaves removed
1 large yellow onion—chopped
Juice of ½ a lemon
Olive oil
1 to 2 tablespoons butter

Wash and dry the kale leaves and remove the stems.  Chop the kale into 2 to 3 inch pieces.  Heat a large iron or
stainless steel skillet over a medium-high heat.  Add enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan.  Add the
onions and sauté until clear being careful not to burn them.  Add the chopped kale to the pan and cook, stirring
frequently, until the kale has turned bright green.  Next pour the lemon juice over the kale and cover the skillet
tightly.  Stir occasionally for 15-20 minutes until the kale has turned a dark green.  The longer the cooking time,
the more tender the kale will become.  Just prior to serving, add the butter.

An alternate method is to sauté the onions separately and cook the kale in a pressure cooker.  The pressure
cooker should be kept at 15 pounds per square inch pressure for at least 8 minutes.  When the kale cooked, add
the sautéed onions, lemon, and butter and cook for a few more minutes allowing the ingredients to mingle with
one another.

Cranberry Sauce
Presented by Claudia Paquet, November 13, 2010

12 ounces of fresh cranberries rinsed and picked over
*(I used about 4 cups of organic berries.  I think the organic ones  made a huge  difference in the taste.)
½ cup of filtered water
½ cup of Rapadura
½ cup of Organic brown sugar    *(I mostly used Rapadura and it was fine)
½ teaspoon Redmond’s Real Salt
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Add all ingredients to a heavy-bottomed 2-Qt pot, and stir to combine.  Cover pot and bring mixture to a boil over
medium-high heat (keeping a close eye that it doesn’t boil over).  Remove lid, reduce heat to a simmer and let
cook, stirring occasionally, until think and jam-like, about 15 to 17 minutes or a little longer if need be.  Let cool to
room temperature or chill before serving.  You can double or triple the recipe accordingly and make it in advance
and keep stored in fridge in an air-tight glass container

Butternut Squash with Walnuts and Vanilla Recipe
Presented by Laurie Peters, December 11, 2010

.I substituted pecans and used sweet dumpling squash because it's what I had.

Ingredients

* 1 butternut squash, about 2 pounds, peeled, seeds removed, flesh cut into 1-inch cubes
* 3 bay leaves (if boiling the squash)
* Salt
* 1 heaping cup of walnuts (can substitute pecans or pine nuts)
* 2-3 Tbsp margarine (pareve- or butter for dairy)
* 2 teaspoons grated ginger
* 1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
* Lemon juice
* 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
* Black pepper to taste

Method

1a If roasting Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat the cubed squash with a little vegetable oil and spread out onto a
baking tray. Sprinkle with salt and roast until the cubes begin to brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven.

1b If boiling Put 4 cups of water into a medium-sized pot and add the bay leaves. Bring to a simmer. Add the
squash to the pot. Boil, covered for 10 minutes. Drain.

2 Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and toast the walnuts. Stir frequently or they will burn. Once they
they start to brown, and you can smell the aroma of toasted walnuts, remove from heat.

3 Melt the butter in the pan with the walnuts over medium-high heat. Toss the walnuts to coat with butter, then add
the squash. Toss them to coat with butter.

4 Add the grated ginger, vanilla extract, black pepper, a little salt and dried thyme and toss once more. Turn off
the heat and squeeze some lemon juice over everything. Taste for salt and lemon and add more to taste. If you
want this to be a bit more luxurious, mix in another tablespoon of margarine/butter or two before serving.

Serves 4.

Sweet cottage cheese
From Geri Perry, June 11, 2011
1 quart raw milk
3 ounces raw cream

Pour milk into a wide-mouthed quart jar and let stand in refrigeration until cream separates to the top. Skim the
cream off of milk, place cream in an 8-ounce jar, cap and place cream in refrigerator. Let milk stand in quart jar in
a dark high cupboard until the liquid completely separates from the solids (2-4 days).

Pour into cheese-making cloth pouch , or make a pouch from gauze-cloth or several layers of cheesecloth. Hang
and let strain until milk solids are firm but not dry. (Use the whey to pickle, or in place of raw vinegar to prepare
suaces and spices, or mix whey with 5 parts water and feed to indoor or outdoor plants.)

Put firm cheese in bowl and stir in separated cream and an additional 3 ounces raw cream.

Whole Wheat Crackers
Presented by Robin Migalla, June 11, 2011
2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. butter
1/3 c. milk
2 tbsp. honey
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Combine flour, salt and baking powder, add honey. Cut butter into the flour
mixture.  Add milk gradually to moisten evenly. Add more milk a little at a time to make a soft dough that doesn't
stick to the bowl.  Roll dough using a pastry cloth and covered rolling pin to a thickness of 1/4".  Cut out desired
shapes and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Prick crackers with a fork.  Bake 20 minutes or until slightly
browned.  Add herbs to the dough, or sprinkle seeds like poppy, caraway or sesame before baking.

Baba Ganoush
Robin Migalla
One whole eggplant
1 large onion chopped
1 clove garlic
Sesame oil
Tahini
Celtic Sea Salt
Pepper

Bake eggplant at 350° for about an hour until easily pierced with a fork.  Remove from oven and place directly into
a covered dish or pot.  When cooled, peel.  Saute onions and garlic in sesame oil and let cool.  Place eggplant,
onions, garlic, and tahini in the food process and blend well.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Since I love tahini, I'm
very generous with it.  This is one of those dishes that lets you adjust ingredients to your own tastes.

Curried Coconut Sweet Potatoes
Valerie Howells
yield: serves 6 to 8, active time 15 minutes, total time 35 minutes

* 2 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes (3 or 4 large), scrubbed and cut into 11/2-inch chunks
* 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) unsalted butter
* 1 tablespoon mild curry powder
* 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* Pinch of cayenne pepper
* 1 cup coconut milk (see tip below), more as needed
* 2 T maple syrup (if desired)
* Kosher salt
* 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice, more as needed
* 6 tablespoons toasted coconut flakes, sweetened or unsweetened (see note below)
* cilantro possible garnish

Procedures

1. Fit a steamer basket into a large pot, add water just to the bottom of the basket, and arrange the sweet
potatoes in a snug layer in the basket. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat, cover the pot, and lower
the heat to maintain a vigorous simmer. Cook until the potatoes are completely tender when pierced with a
skewer, 15 to 20 minutes. (Keep an eye on the water level during cooking, and add more if it threatens to boil off.)
Remove from the heat, carefully remove the potatoes from the basket, and set aside.

2. Pour the water out of the pot and return to medium heat. Add the butter, curry, cinnamon, and cayenne and
cook, stirring constantly, until the butter is melted and the spices are fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the coconut
milk, maple syrup, and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, bring to a simmer, and cook for an additional minute to thicken
slightly. Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice.

3. Carefully peel off and discard the potato skins. Add the potatoes to the pot and mash until smooth and all
ingredients are blended. (At this point you can adjust the consistency of the potatoes by adding up to 1/2 cup of
water.) Taste and add more salt , maple syrup or lemon juice as needed. If necessary, rewarm over low heat,
stirring constantly.

4. To serve, transfer to a serving dish and top with the coconut and cilantro.

5. You can make these potatoes up to a day ahead. Reheat in a covered ovenproof dish in a 350∞F oven until
heated through, about 40 minutes. Garnish just before serving.

Note: To toast coconut, spread it in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake in a 350∞F oven, stirring
occasionally, until golden.

Tip: Make sure you use coconut milk (which is unsweetened) and not coconut cream (which has a hefty dose of
sugar added). And because the fatty coconut solids rise to the top, it is always a good idea to whisk the entire
contents of the can before measuring out the amount you need.
