Green Beans a la Shawn

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: sides, recipes, newsletter

Shawn (3) said he wanted bacon and green beans, but the bacon had to be crispy, not too fatty. Here is the result. Simple, yummy and nutritious. BONUS: What is the difference between the two TC Farm bacon options at Lakewinds?



McCann Stuffing

Grandma McCann's Thanksgiving Stuffing Recipe. I can't tell you how much better this recipe is than most stuffings or dressings I have tried. Give it a shot!



Fermented Beets

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: sides, recipes, newsletter, ferment, instant pot

Fermented beets are so tasty and good for you... filled with probiotics, they are a perfect way to capture a bit of summer. Using an InstantPot or other e-Pressure Cooker is an ideal way to cook beets.



The Ultimate Summer Sauce: Garlic Lime Butter

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, sides, sauces

The first night Betsy made this, Jack practically ate it with a spoon. He even used it as a salad dressing. Betsy thought this was taking it a little too far, but we both agree that it is the perfect summer accompaniment to any lighter meat or veggie.



Honey Ginger Heirloom Carrots

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, vegetarian, sides

There is nothing like local heirloom carrots. We just love when we get them in our veggie CSA. They are fantastic raw, but add a bit of honey and ginger and you get something quite special for the few minutes of your time.



Moroccan Ragout - Vegetarian

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, vegetarian, sides, vegan

Betsy always saves ideas for recipes that pile up when we don't have time to cook as much as we'd like. This one she kept around for years until we finally tried it out. We made a few modifications and really like how it turned out!

Easy.. this is really easy... Bacon Fat Fried Organic Brussel Sprouts with FAST from scratch Saffron Hollandaise. Yum.



Mushroom Squash Risotto

Posted by Josh King | Tags: sides, recipes, soup

We love vegetarian meals. Rice isn’t something we should eat all the time for a wide range of reasons, but there nothing like a REAL risotto with Arborio rice. Strictly speaking this dish isn’t vegetarian since a homemade broth is essential to the flavor. The broth also adds electrolytes and helps cushion the onslaught of carbs the rice throws at us. This meal takes time to do it right, but it is easy. Just get a glass of wine and have a nice conversation.



Roasted Cauliflower With Garlic

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: sides, recipes, vegan, vegetarian

This is fantastic -- a superfood and easy to make. When I first tried making this, I didn't expect much, but it turned out so good that I was glad I made two whole cauliflowers worth!



Beet Chips

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, sides, vegetarian

Beets are SO good, but they also require planning ahead to roast and use in things... I love having this quick option for a great salty and sweet snack or side dish!



Kale Chips

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, side, vegetarian

These chips are amazing.. so simple and healthy... but watch out, they are addictive and you'll never make enough to satisfy everyone the first time!



Grandpa Cucumbers

I've always loved these 'Grandpa' cucumbers, easy to make and a great side for almost anything.



Sauteed cabbage and peas

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, side, vegetarian

Simple easy side dish.... I can't believe how good fried cabbage is, I mean its just cabbage!



Roasted Garbanzo Beans with Swiss Chard and Garlic

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, vegetarian, sides

This is a great side dish that goes with everything... or it could even be a main dish if you prefer!



Risotto

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: sides, recipes, bones, newsletter

Risotto is really simple to make, but it is outstanding when done right. The trick is having patience as well as good rice and broth. It can be a stand alone meal or a side dish. I love taking the time to caramelize the onions this recipe calls for...
