Whole Roasted Herb Chicken with Baby Potatoes and Onions
Essence of summer! I look forward to this seasonal treat every year. I can't bring myself to buy basil out of season and force myself to wait patiently until it is growing in my garden. Living in a frosty area, the harvest window is short and so I relish this herb like no other 🌱😋💚
White Bean Soup with Leeks, Vegan Pesto, and Garlicky Croutons 🎄
Looking for an easy comforting vegan or vegetarian meal for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day Super easy, especially if you have a slow cooker or Instapot.
I use heirloom beans from @tierra_vegetables and this vegan pesto is spot on! 👌 Can’t tell the difference between this pesto and pesto with Parmesan cheese.
2 cups dried white heirloom beans soaked for 6 hours or so in fresh water, then drained and rinsed
3 leaks, sliced in coin shape and washed well
2-4 cloves garlic, minced
2 stalks celery with leaves, chopped
1/4 tsp of each dried herbs: basil, rosemary, thyme, oregano
1/2 - 1 can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp chili flakes
8 cups of water
2 cubes vegetable bullion
Salt to taste
1 cup baby spinach
1/2 bunch fresh basil
1/4 cup pine nuts
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced, or rice vinegar - for acid
3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
Sourdough baguette, cubed
3 Tbsp olive oil
After soaking the dried beans for 6 hours or more and rinsing them, throw all the ingredients into a slow cooker (except the vegetable bouillon and salt) and cook for several hours. Add the vegetable bouillon and cook until beans are done. Add salt to taste, but be aware that the pesto and croutons will be salty, so error on the side of less salt.
Throw all ingredients into a blender or food processor and adjust acid and salt as needed.
Toss bread cubes in the olive oil and garlic salt and place is a shallow baking dish. Preheat oven to 335 F and bake bread cubes for 30 to 40 minutes, or until golden and crunchy.
Serve soup in bowls topped with croutons and vegan pesto. Enjoy! 😋
First time at Napa and I’m not sure if anything can top the Chef’s Garden Pairing at B Cellars 😋🍷
During harvest over 45 mills are in operation throughout the state. The importance of the meticulous process of milling that must occur in order for the highest quality of oil to be produced cannot be overstated. Precision, artistry, science and innovation - this is the job of California’s talented millers and mills. A huge thanks to #CAGROWN and the cagrown community for going on this Take-Over journey with us! #welove. For anything you’d ever want to know about EVOO find us at cooc.com
Above: @43ranch. Located in San Ardo in Monterey County, this mill has been producing award-winning oils almost from the moment it opened its doors. This is one of many mills and olive-oil tasting rooms across the state that the public can visit. Pictured is Little Kora -she’s our look into the future - and it’s looking bright!
