A different take on a traditional English dish. Uses leftover vegetables from the previous night’s roast, typically potatoes, carrots, peas and cabbage. I used seasonal vegetables from my local farmers market and backyard garden.
1. Scrub the potatoes (peeling them is optional). Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook until you can pierce them with a fork, then drain them in a colander. It should take about 20-25 minutes for the potatoes to cook, but this will depend on the size of them. So make sure to test with a fork. When done drain off all of the water.
2. Put the butter and olive oil into a frying pan on medium heat. Finely dice the onion and garlic, then add them to the pan, stirring occasionally.
3. Begin to add the drained potatoes to the pan, stirring and pressing down on them with a spatula so they mash a little. Continue to stir and mash ingredients until the potatoes are fried to your liking.
4. Add the Swiss chard. Stir for about 1 minute until the chard is wilted. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
While my hubby used frozen fries (which also work great), this recipe starts from scratch, because I have plenty of potatoes in the bin. The fries come out crisp without being fried while the seasoning adds a nice flavor with a little kick of spice. This recipe will please husbands, wives, kids … even in-laws!
Cassava, also known as yuca, was one of my discoveries when visiting the Mexican vendors at my local flea market. Although the root vegetable is not indigenous to Mexico I seasoned this dish with some popular Mexican seasonings, then roasted it and enjoyed it (along with a couple of cold Dos Equis)!
Grilled fresh corn on the cob.
The big debate? Cook with husks on or husks off? I say husks off! Cook on the grill, this way the sweet corn kernels get a smoky-grilled flavor. There’s no need to blanch it first. Use a stove top grill or outside grill–just peel, remove silk and place right on the grill. Simple as that! Then top it with a homemade chili lime mayo and fresh cilantro.
