Rootastes’ Chefs’ Curated Recipes
Recent cooler temperatures are having us dreaming of warm, savory comfort food. Our chefs answered the call with this week’s recipes!
Serve up Salmon with Creamy Garlic Tuscan Sauce and Spinach for a satisfying Italian meal. The omega-3 loaded fish is enveloped in thick cream that’s bursting with pungent garlic, sweet sundried tomatoes, piquant Parmesan, and topped with iron-rich, creamy spinach.
And on the topic of spinach, you’ll love it in Creamed Spinach and Purple Kale Casserole. This dish takes on the color of royalty while paprika adds smokiness to the greens. Parmesan zips in some flavor while parsley freshens up the cream sauce.
On leisurely afternoons, get a boost of energy with this hearty and brag worthy Spinach Kale Apple Salad. It’s full of crunch from crisp apples, brimmed with leafy greens, sweet & tangy blueberries, crumbled feta cheese, and a delicious peachy, zesty, honey dressing. What’s not to love about this salad. We just wish there was a better word than love to describe our affections for this salad.
Along with frying up eggplant in our chefs’ Sunny Side Up recipe, bake it- twice!- in this recipe that leaves you with a creamy and perfectly textured eggplant that you can easily scoop out and toss with other recipes. Or enjoy on its own! It’s already seasoned with onions, garlic, basil, and spices, and topped with cheese.
Craving a snack that’s crunchy, sweet, and with a little heat? Spicy Roasted Daikon French Fries call for daikon radishes, a long, white Asian radish that resembles a parsnip. As they hail from Asia, the recipe calls for Asian flavors to season the fries. Ginger, chili paste, soy sauce, and more lead to an umami, caramelized fry that’s way more flavorful than its French cousin.
If you decide to give any of these recipes a try, let us know what you think. We’d also love to see how you’re getting crafty in the kitchen with your basket, so be sure to share your favorite recipes below.
