Pickled Watermelon Radish
Ingredients
  • 4 c. filtered water
  • 2 Tbsp. fine sea salt
  • 1 bunch watermelon radishes
  • 1 tsp. of whatever spices you want to use: Coriander seeds black peppercorns, celery seed, red chili flakes, fennel seed
  • Sterilized glass jars weight helpful to submerge radish
Instructions
  1. Warm the water on the stove in a small pot. Pour in the salt and stir until dissolved. Cover and allow to cool.
  2. Wash the radishes and slice into 1/8 inch thick rounds. Add the slices to your clean jars with enough room for the weight and cover with brine. Add spices if using.
  3. Make sure the radish slices are completely submerged in the brine. This prevents them from spoiling. Gently place the weight on top to help release air bubbles. Cover and close jar loosely.
  4. Place a plate under the jar for spillage as it starts to ferment and allow to ferment on the counter for 2-7 days. Taste the radishes after 36 hours and if they are ready stick them in the fridge to prevent further fermentation. If they are not ready leave them on the counter and taste again in a day or two.
  5. Enjoy them as a snack, on top of salads, or as a side dish.

I always love to incorporate veggies in dishes. French onion is so rich in flavor that you won’t notice the swiss chard but it’s a great way to add in a punch of nutrients. This recipe calls for red or white wine. You can do either or you can leave it out if you prefer. The secret to amazingFrench Onion Soup is carmelizing the onions. This takes a bit more time but totally worth the effort. This recipe is for 2 so double or triple it if you need or want more.

French Onion Soup with Swiss Chard
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 lb onions sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 tbsp dried thyme
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup red wine or 1/2 cup of dry vermouth or dry white wine (depending on your preference) or you can leave this out.
  • 1.5 heaping tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 quart beef broth
  • 1 baguette sliced
  • 1/4 pound grated Gruyere or Swiss Cheese
  • 1 bunch Swiss Chard stem removed and chopped thin.
Instructions
  1. Melt the stick of butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, bay leaves, thyme, and salt and pepper and cook until the onions are very soft and caramelized, about 25 minutes.
  2. Add the wine, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the wine has evaporated and the onions are dry, about 5 minutes. Discard the bay leaves.
  3. Dust the onions with the flour and give them a stir. Turn the heat down to medium low so the flour doesn't burn, and cook for 10 minutes to cook out the raw flour taste.
  4. Now add the beef broth, bring the soup back to a simmer, and cook for 10 minutes. Add swiss chard to wilt. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.
  5. When you're ready to eat, preheat the broiler. Arrange the baguette slices on a baking sheet in a single layer. Sprinkle the slices with the Gruyere and broil until bubbly and golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes.
  6. Ladle the soup in bowls and float several of the Gruyere croutons on top.
