eating down the house. continued…
i read a fair few blogs and am constantly inspired by these people who understand food so well. it certainly makes cooking easier on me. tonight i riffed off one of my all-time fave blogs, smitten kitchen and enlisted a touch of help from minimally invasive (orange zest/pimenton = wow).
i bought one large yellow onion along with 3 organic valencia oranges for zest. everything else was in the house.
i sauteed the one big onion and the last of my small ones in some olive oil. when they were about to brown i added the chopped sweet potatoes, the last of my fresh sage, the zest of 3 oranges, niman ranch chorizo sausage, and a mixture of turnip, red russian kale and collard greens along with a litre of chicken broth – in no particular order. i salt and peppered to taste and then added some (magic) sweet smoked pimenton.
the sweet potatoes and greens were all from my csa. i used quite a bit of both. but somehow, i still have more… they are reproducing overnight. like rabbits.
it was a one pot meal. and really, this was so good. but so very, very good. in fact, surprisingly excellent. a bonafide winner!
i’d love to go on about it some more but i am tired and have to wake up early…
ps – i can’t say it was a stoup. i just can’t… way too rachel ray on the lingo for me.
