Recipes for Dad!

Here are the 11 I like best and why:

Breakfast

  1. Savory Oatmeal (roughly Oatmeal with Sauteed Mushrooms, Onion, and Thyme) with kale and an egg on top. And broth.  – yes, it’s mush, but it’s SUCH GOOD MUSh
  2. Green eggs: ends of herbs from fridge… LITERALLY ANY. Here, arugula totally counts as a herb. Put in container with some eggs and maybe a little milk. Puree until green. Pour into hot buttered pan. Scramble or fold or flip like frittata. Serve with aggressive hard cheese (tomme, ramano, parmesan) and maybe asparagus.

Dinner/Lunch

2. Brussels sprouts pasta – Fast and easy. Add fake bacon or just salt and smoke water instead of the meat stuff. IT’S EVEN STILL GOOD WITHOUT PARM.

3. Sweet potato chard bake – Not fast, but delicious and rich

MAYBE: Eggplant and mozz bake – orzo is optional; could use anything else. The prep on the eggplant makes it amazingly yummy

4. Farro pesto with asparagus (and green things) – simple and vibrant, inspired by Mikkeller’s Cauliflower Tempura 

Backup 5. Chickpea butter nut squash burgers – plated or for sandwiches

5. Ginger Sweet Potato Balls – plated or for sandwiches

6. Burst Tomato Galette – looks really pretty, could be for lunch or dinner or hors-d’ouvres.

7. Lemon brocollini risotto – super allergy friendly, when you leave out the parm, and do the standard swap out of veggie broth for chicken. I prefer with brocollini over broccoli. Is just better

8. Cabbage Marmalade – this stuff is magic and is so yummy with capers on bread or by itself or on pizza

Sides?

Apple Celery Salad – something like this, basically an exercise in knife skills.

Sauces

9. Magic fast pasta sauce: My own recipe: Can of tomatoes, pile of basil, some cloves of garlic, immersion blend. 

9. Fancy slow pasta sauce – smells good, fairly foolproof, very simple, requires minimal garnish.

Desserts

10. Cardamom ricotta with pear – grilling makes it fancier?

Soup

11. Mushroom souped – this is an awesome way to basically just eat mushrooms.

Maybe a serving suggestion for old gorg and spinach?? Mushroom broth with gorgonzola, spinach, and some pasta. WITH ONIONS, DUH.
