One of our fabulous members, Rebecca Young, shared two delicious recipes by her so-called 'spirit animal', Ina Garten. Easily modifiable and healthy, Ina's Winter Slaw and Cauliflower & Celery Root Soup are year-round staples for Rebecca and her family. Plus, you can get all of the ingredients from Trader Joe's!
Ina Garten's Winter Slaw
1. With a very sharp chef’s knife, cut the kale, Brussels sprouts, and radicchio crosswise in thin shreds, as you would cut cabbage for coleslaw, and place them in a large bowl.
2. In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper. Pour enough dressing on the salad to just moisten it, reserving the rest.
3. Shave the Parmesan in big shards with a vegetable peeler. Add the cheese and dried cranberries to the salad and toss it carefully to avoid breaking up the cheese. Check for seasonings, add more vinaigrette, if necessary, and serve cold or at room temperature.
The pre-packaged shaved brussels sprouts from Trader Joe's make life much easier. You can also use Trader Joe's dried tart cherries instead of cranberries, and add walnuts and shredded carrots to the mix.
