Roasted Broccoli Gratin with Blue Cheese

If you don’t have blue cheese, you can also use Emmental, Gruyere, goat cheese, Gouda, or any good melting cheese. Recipe from How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman.

Makes 4 servings. Cooking time: 30 minutes

1 ½ to 2 pounds broccoli
3 Tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper
2 cloves garlic
1 cup crumbled blue cheese
½ cup bread crumbs
  1. Heat over to 425°. Toss broccoli with oil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Transfer to over-safe dish. Bake for 10-15 minutes
  2. Remove the dish from oven. (If you want, remove garlic cloves at this point).
  3. Sprinkle the top of the broccoli with blue cheese and then bread crumbs. Return to the oven and cook until the cheese is bubbling and the bread crumbs are golden brown, about 10 minutes. Serve warm or hot.

Cilantro Dressing

Do you still have cilantro from last week? This recipe will last in your fridge for three weeks.

2 green onions or green garlic
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 Tablespoons honey
1 bunch cilantro
1 clove garlic (optional)
salt and pepper to taste

Put all liquid ingredients into blender, then add the rest of the ingredients. Blend all ingredients until smooth.

Kale Slaw

Recipe suggested by Tom and Karol King

Mix and set aside:

1 bunch kale/collards, chopped finely
2 carrots, grated
1 tart green apple, chopped or grated
1 cup purple cabbage, thinly sliced
½ cup scallions
½ cup green garlic
½ cup dried cherries or dried cranberries
2/3 cup cashews, finely chopped
½ lb marinated tofu, cubed (optional)

For the dressing:

2/3 cup Annie’s Sesame-Ginger Vinaigrette
½ cup mayonnaise
1-1/2 Tbsp. tamari (I use soy sauce…still good)
Whisk together and pour over slaw veggies.

Just yummy plain by itself…or use with a pita bread, place a slice of turkey inside and fill with Kale Slaw…or use a whole wheat tortilla….place a turkey slice inside…fill with some Kale Slaw… Roll into a wrap…you will love it.  Great for lunch, snacks…..And the nieces and nephews love it as well…
