Coconut Kabocha Soup

Recipe submitted by Jessica of Feed Me Dearly.

“Gone are the days when squash meant a choice of acorn or butternut. Yes, I still eat them, but there’s a special kind of thrill involved when you hack into your first Red Kuri, or break down a Kabocha, with its tough green skin and sweet, almost spiced orange flesh.

I’d recently bought some Japanese 7-spice because I’d seen someone using it in a curry, and it piqued my curiosity. I found my Japanese 7-spice at Spices and Tease in Chelsea Market, but Amazon and other online vendors will carry it as well.

While I’m familiar with Chinese 5-spice powder and use it frequently in my cooking, I’d never tried Japanese 7-spice – a spicy, earthy blend of orange peel, black, white and toasted sesame seeds, cayenne, ginger, Szechuan pepper and nori.

The spice mixture sounded like a perfect match for Kabocha. Sweet and spicy is one of my favorite flavor combinations, and with the orange and ginger, a virtual soup was quickly forming in the food-centric depths of my brain.

The Kabocha starts with a slow roast in the oven with a touch of olive oil, salt and pepper. Best to keep the flavors muted at this point to let the 7-spice really shine.”

"If there’s a dish that defines my cooking these days, it’s this soup. It’s simple to make, yet feels new and exotic. It’s healthy and can be eaten with a range of diets from dairy- & gluten-free to vegan/vegetarian, and even Paleo. It’s easy enough for a weeknight meal, but pretty enough to put on your Thanksgiving table."

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Break down your Kabocha squash by splitting it in half and scooping out the seeds. You can reserve the seeds for another use (spiced, roasted seeds can be made just as you would make roasted pumpkin seeds). Cut the squash halves lengthwise into segments (they’ll resemble half moons).
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and add the squash segments, tossing with the olive oil and seasoning with the salt and pepper to taste. Roast the squash for an hour, flipping halfway through. Let the squash cool, and then scoop out the flesh and reserve.
  4. Heat a Dutch oven on medium-high heat and add the olive oil, and the onions with a pinch of salt and pepper. Sweat the onions until translucent, stirring every so often to prevent browning.
  5. When the onions are nearly done, add the ginger and Japanese 7-spice, stirring frequently, for 1 minute. Add the Kabocha and stock, and bring to a boil, then turn your heat down to low. Simmer the soup for 10 minutes.
  6. While the soup is simmering, scoop the cream off the top of the coconut milk and reserve. Once the soup has been simmering for 10 minutes, add the rest of the coconut milk, and simmer for a few minutes more.
  7. Puree the soup with an immersion blender and taste again for seasoning. If you’d like to add more heat, add another pinch of the Japanese 7-spice. When ready to serve, ladle the soup into a serving bowl, and then top with a dollop of the coconut milk and another sprinkle of the Japanese 7-spice. Shower the soup with a pinch of Maldon salt which adds great texture and another salty contrast to balance the sweetness of the soup.

The day after Thanksgiving may be the toughest time to cook for people who have hosted the big feast the day before. In my family, my stepmom calls it her day of rest. Her baguette french toast is the absolute perfect solution to keeping us all well fed with minimal effort on her part. She uses leftover (if there is any!) baguettes from dinner and throws any fruit she has in it, our favorite are blueberries! The best part about this breakfast, or brunch, is that you can make it the day before and pop it in the oven when you're ready to eat.

Grilled Steak With Chimichurri Sauce

Recipe submitted by Lisa of Panning the Globe.

Chimichurri is the quintessential partner to grilled beef in Argentina, where the beef is renowned and where barbecued beef is considered their national dish. The sauce is a vibrant mix of fresh parsley, vinegar, and spices – very simple and quick to make if you have a blender or a food processor.

Slather it on steak, chicken or fish. Use it as a marinade. I love to keep a stash of chimichurri in the fridge to jazz up burgers and sandwiches, too.

  1. Put all the sauce ingredients (everything but the steak) into the bowl of a food processor or blender and blend just until everything is combined and garlic is very finely minced. Set aside.
  2. Put steak in a non-reactive container. Spoon 4 tablespoons of the chimichurri sauce on top of steak and spread it around. Flip steak over a few times to coat. Marinate at room temperature for 1 hour or in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight. Allow steak to come to room temperature before proceeding (about 1/2 hour out of the fridge). Preheat the grill to high. Sprinkle steak with salt and pepper and grill for 3-4 minutes per side, until it is lightly charred on the outside and medium rare on the inside. Let steak rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Slice against the grain. Spoon chimichurri on top or serve on the side.

Bubbe’s Brisket

Recipe submitted by Amanda, Tea’s Sr. Marketing Manager

Every year for Hanukah my mom makes Brisket. Although Hanukah runs for 8 nights, we typically choose one night to celebrate it as a family. My siblings and I are grown up and living on our own, but we always make a point to pick one night we can come together as a family. Sure, it’s nice to see everyone and get together, plus we exchange gifts, but the biggest perk… her delicious, juicy, Jewish style brisket.

I’ve done my best to quantify this recipe, but the truth is, I think she changes it a little every time. The most important thing, is that there is both a sweet and a tangy element, and lots of liquid. My grandmother actually used to add coffee to it. So feel free to experiment and share how you added your own twist in a comment below!

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Place a couple of spoons of the chili sauce around the bottom of a roasting dish. Slice up the onions and spread them around the pan.
  3. Put the brisket on top (trim off any large pieces of fat). Fill in the area around the brisket with the potatoes and carrots.
  4. Cover everything with the rest of the chili sauce, the cranberry sauce, and the wine. Cover tightly with foil, because it will get really juicy.
  5. Cook at 300 degrees for 5-8 hours depending on the size of your brisket. It should fall apart when you test it with a fork.
  6. To serve, slice it up in the pieces against the grain. Make sure to get lots of juice and veggies. If you have to transport it, make sure it take the juice out first and put it in a Tupperware container. (I learned that the hard way.) The best part is, if you have any left, it freezes really well!
