Flat Bread Fold-Over | Jenny’s Bread

Like any other kind of cooking, good bread baking begins with the best flours (King Arthur and Four Star Farms) and local ingredients-Web of Life farm eggs, Hornstra milk, Cabot or Kate’s butter, Narragansett Creamery cheeses, Queen Bee honey, Kate’s buttermilk. All of my breads are made by hand (except the pizza doughs, made in a food processor) out of my home with lots of love and elbow grease. – Jenny of Jenny’s Bread

Serves 4 to 6

Ingredients

  • 1 Jenny’s Bread pizza dough (white or grilling)
  • butter or olive oil
  • toppings or fillings of your choice

Preparation

Cut your pizza dough into 4 pieces of equal size. Heat a cast iron pan (8 to 12 inches) over medium low heat. While the pan is heating, gently press each piece of dough out into a circle on a smooth surface using the oil it came in and adding a touch more if you need it. If the dough resists allow it to rest a while (10 to 15 minutes is usually enough) before trying it again. Coat the bottom of the heated pan with a pat or butter or a swirl of olive oil. Place one bread in the pan. Cook 2 to 3 minutes (times will vary with different stoves) or until the bottom is a golden brown. Flip and cook until bottom is a golden brown. Remove from pan and enfold in a dish cloth while while you make the others stacking them as you go.

Cut pizza style and serve with hummus or your favorite dip. Fold it around fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella cheese. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Wrap around your favorite Brown Boar or Dufort Farms sausage. Or just rip it apart and eat it while it’s hot!

Chive Pancakes | Paula Marcoux

Ingredients

For the sauce:
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 tablespoon dark soy sauce (or another of light soy sauce)
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sambal oelek or other Asian hot chile paste
1/4 cup chicken broth (or water, plus another dash or two of soy)

For the pancakes:
1 3/4 cups (8 ounces) all-purpose flour
1 3/4 cups (6 ounces) unbleached cake flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons peanut, canola, or corn oil, plus more for frying pancakes
1 1/4 cups boiling water
Asian (toasted) sesame oil for brushing
1 1/2 cups chives or scallions, finely chopped

Preparation

1. Make sauce first to let flavors marry. Mix all ingredients and let rest while you make the dough.

2. With a food processor or by hand, mix together flours and salt. Stir in 2 tablespoons oil, then, gradually, the boiling water. (You may need a few more drops water, but wait and see.) Once it comes together in a ball, knead by hand a few minutes, then let rest airtight for 30 minutes.

3. Roll the dough into a cylinder, and cut into 12 even-sized pieces. Roll each into a smooth ball. Cover with a moist towel or plastic wrap so they don’t dry out.

4. Roll one ball out thinly, brush with sesame oil, sprinkle liberally with chives, and roll up snugly in a cylinder. Coil the tube of filled dough in a spiral, keeping the seam to the inside. Press together a bit, and set aside, covered, while you fashion the rest.

5. Gently roll each pancake flat. They should be 4 or 5 inches in diameter and about 1/4-inch thick. (Light-handed rolling preserves all-important layering for the best texture.) Set up a couple large skillets or a griddle; heat 1/8 inch of oil over medium heat. (You can continue rolling as you fry.)

6. When the oil is hot, fry the pancakes (as many as you can at a time without crowding) until golden brown and crispy and cooked through — they should take about 3 minutes on the A side, and 2 minutes on the B side. Drain briefly on a rack or paper, cut in quarters, and serve hot with dipping sauce.

Roasted Winter Root Vegetables

Adapted from Deborah Madison’s Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone

Ingredients
2 1/2 lb mixed root vegetables — potatoes, carrots, turnips, parsnips, beets, sweet potatoes, small onions, or whole shallots (or celeriac, sunchokes, delicata squash, leeks, radish)
1 head garlic separated into cloves but unpeeled
Several short rosemary sprigs or sage leaves
3 bay leaves
Olive oil
Salt and freshly milled pepper
Preparation
Preheat the oven to 450F. Peel the vegetables, onions, and shallots. Cut everything into pieces roughly the same size except for the parsnips, sweet potatoes, and turnips, which cook faster and can be slightly larger than the rest. Toss the vegetables, garlic, and herbs with oil to coat lightly, then season with salt and pepper.
Put everything in a roomy pan. Bake, uncovered, in the top 1/3 of the oven for 20 minutes, shaking the pan once or twice. Reduce the heat to 375F and continue baking until the vegetables are tender when pierced with a knife, twenty to thirty minutes, depending on how large they are. Remove the bay leaves.

chiffonade basil

Tomato, Basil and Leek Soup | Students of the Rising Tide Charter School

Ingredients

4 cups fresh local tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and small dice
2 leeks, white part only (save the greens for stock), split the leeks lengthwise, slice in half moons and place in a container of cold water to clean.
1 cup fresh basil, loosely packed
2 cups water or broth (vegetable, chicken or corn)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter or your favorite cooking oil
2 cups organic heavy cream
1 teaspoon salt

Preparation

Saute leeks in butter or oil over low heat until translucent in a dutch oven or sauce pan. Add tomatoes and salt, bring to a simmer and then add broth or water. Bring back to simmer for about ten minutes. While the base of the soup cooks, chiffonade the basil by stacking the leaves and then rolling them lengthwise. With a sharp knife, slice the basil roll perpendicularly, creating fine thin strips. (The tighter the roll, the easier it is to make your slices thin.) Stir heavy cream into the soup. Add chiffonade basil and bring to a final simmer. Season with salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste.
