Farmers’ Stew

Another favorite from cooking goddess Deborah Madison that fits perfectly with the Eat Local Challenge. Her description reads, “It’s such an easy pleasure to make this dish, I always imagine it would be ideal for tired farmers at the end of the day- or tired anyone. While the onions sizzle in olive oil, you’re cutting eggplant and squash into big bold pieces. Into the pan they go, a thigh-fitting lid goes on top, down goes the heat, and the vegetables stew briefly in their own juices until tender. You can be completely relaxed and improvisational with this stew, for it really reflects the generous spirit of the market with all its choice and variety. Any kind of squash, onion, or eggplant will be fine, in any proportion. I find that some of the skinnier eggplants are interesting here: Yellow squash definitely enlivens the appearance; pattypans can be cut into thick wedges; zucchini into 2-inch logs, than halved or quartered, etc.”

Roasted Peppers

“Roasted peppers can be expensive to buy but are very easy to make. When peppers are in abundance, roast some and freeze for later use. One way to do this is in freezer boxes, separating the layers with waxed paper.”

Shell Beans and Summer Vegetables Stewed in Their Own Juices

“This humble braise more or less cooks itself. The vegetables are cut into large pieces (quick to prepare) and are meltingly tender when finished. Some might say they’re overcooked, and they are soft, but this only brings out their flavors. Once, when I added some pesto at the end, the familiar flavors told me that I had made a soupe au pisou, only a heartier version.” - Deborah Madison
