Sourdough Bread

This recipe is based off of the New York Times' "No-knead" Sourdough. Though as far as I can tell most sourdough is "no-knead" so… Anyhow, it is at least a straight-forward and "simple" (in the world of sourdough) recipes.

  • 3 ½ cups (475g) bread flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon/6 grams kosher salt
  • ¾ cup (180g) sourdough starter, “fed”

The Day before

Feed your starter to wake it up.

The night before

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt.

Wheat sandwich bread

This recipe presumes a bread machine.

  • 1⅓ c water
  • ¼ c grains (fast-cooking better)
    ⅛ c gluten
    2 cups wheat flour
    1 c less ⅛ white flour
    2 T dry milk
    2 t salt
    3 T honey (use a T measure to make indents in the flour, pour in)
    3 T butter in small pieces
    just less than 2t yeast on top

Add ingredients in order - the gluten and flour will "float" on top of the water, make sure the grains you add are in the water to soak.

Plokkfiskur (Icelandic Fish Stew)

Serves 4

  • 1 lb cod, haddock, or halibut filet
  • 1 lb waxy potatoes, boiled (or microwaved) and roughly chopped
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • 12 oz milk
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • salt and pepper
  • (mustard? Curry? thyme? )
  • ½ cup of breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup grated cheese (edam or mild, easy-melting cheddar)
  • 2 tablespoons chives
  • White wine (optional)

Serve with plenty of rye bread and butter!

Salt fish and turn on broiler to low

In a (very) large skillet, saute fish in half of the butter (and white wine if available) until cooked through and flaking, flipping halfway through and covering to heat through

Remove fish and set aside, reserving liquids.

Add the remaining butter to the pan and saute onions over medium heat until translucent [Add any additional desired spices, such as mustard powder.]

Sprinkle flour on and stir to coat, then add the reserved liquids and deglaze the pan if needed

Gradually add milk, slowly heat until steaming. (This would be another option to add additional seasoning, such as thyme or other herbs, to allow their flavors to infuse the milk.)
Simmer for 3-4 min, stirring often, until the mixture becomes creamy.

Add potatoes and stir briskly to break up the potatoes a bit.

Add fish & stir gently. Adjust seasoning / salt and pepper.

DO AHEAD:
Fish stew base can be made up to this point and reserved for serving at a later time.

DAY OF:
Spoon into ramekins or another baking dish.
Add bread crumbs and cheese.
If fish stew base is still hot, broil for 5 minutes until cheese is bubbling and golden brown
If fish stew base is cold, heat through in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes, then broil briefly to brown cheese.

Sprinkle ea serving with 1/2 tbsp chives. Serve hot w/dark rye bread & butter.

Huevos Rancheros

A tasty and relatively easy recipe with a great classic red sauce. The original recipe linked below uses canned chipotles, but this has been adapted to use more dried chiles, as the heat from the canned chipotles overpowers the eggs.

Sauce

  • 4-6 whole dried chipotles (only 2-3 canned)
  • 1/4 cup canola oil, divided
  • 1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 medium cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 (14-ounce) can crushed tomatoes, preferably fire-roasted (such as Muir Glen)
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro leaves and fine stems, plus more for serving
