the torte

posted in: in the kitchen | 2





That torte I mentioned yesterday… it was delicious. And the best part is, there are leftovers. I was first introduced to the idea of a torte last summer, by Erin of bluebirdbaby (and yes, that is an infusion rucksack shown there!). A torte is super easy to make, and the possible variations of what to include are limitless. Mine are never traditional, if there is such a thing, but it is hard to go wrong with layers of roasted vegetables, herbs and cheese. This one included potatoes, carrots, beets, mushrooms, kale, arugula, red onion and cheese, with thyme and dill.

Do you have a favorite recipe that uses lots of kale? We have a lot of kale and sometimes I get stuck on how to creatively use it.

    That looks incredibly delicious! I need to go make some dinner right now. (Bracken is climbing on me like a jungle-gym while I attempt to write this.)

    I love your garden pictures!!

    Hi Abby! mmmm…Kale! You probably already do these things with it, but some of my faves are kale smoothies; kale chips (toss kale w/ olive oil, seasoning, bake in a single layer till crisp. Easy to eat LOTS this way!); chop it fine, saute with garlic, pimenton (smoked paprika), serve over polenta..this is esp. good with wild greens mixed in with the kale and some cheese in the polenta; kale pesto, which also freezes well. I actually started gardening just so I could grow lots of kale! Happy Spring to you!
