Eggplant Lasagna Rolls with Kale, Basil, and Fresh Tomato Sauce

Ingredients:
2 small-medium eggplants
2 cups ricotta cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup (or more) chopped fresh kale
1 egg
salt, pepper
olive oil
 
Fresh Tomato Sauce:
olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, chopped
7-8 medium tomatoes
dash of sugar
salt, pepper
chopped fresh basil and other herbs like oregano and rosemary
 
To make the fresh tomato sauce, first blanch each tomato in water for 2-3 minutes, then sit out to cool. Once tomatoes have cooled, peel. Core the tomatoes, then cut into wedges. Use your fingers to remove the seeds. Set peeled and seeded tomatoes aside. 
 
Saute onion in olive oil over medium heat in a heavy-bottom saucepan with salt and pepper. Once onion is translucent, add garlic. Saute for 2-3 more minutes. Add tomatoes, simmer for 5-10 minutes along with herbs and the dash of sugar. Then remove the sauce from heat and blend using a hand-held immersion blender. (Another option would be to more finely chop the tomatoes before cooking.) After blended, heat on low for 5-10 more minutes. 
 
To make the eggplant lasagna rolls:
 
Remove the top and bottom of the eggplants. Cut the eggplant lengthwise into 1/4 inch or so strips. Do not use the strips that are composed solely of peel. 
 
Lay eggplant strips out on a baking sheet, and salt on both sides. Let sit out for 20 or so minutes, then blot out excess water. 
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and roast the eggplant slices for 20 minutes. 
 
In the meantime, mix together cheeses, basil, kale, and egg and set aside. 
 
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cover the bottom of a 9 by 13 inch casserole dish with tomato sauce. To assemble the rolls, lay out the eggplant strips and spoon in a tablespoon or so on each one. Then roll up and place the rolls seam side down on the baking dish. Cover with more sauce and a little Parmesan cheese. 
 
Bake at 400 for 25 minutes. Enjoy!

Beet -n- Berry Smoothie

Combine one small cooked and peeled beet with a handful of frozen blackberries, 1-2 frozen bananas, a tablespoon peanut butter, a teaspoon honey, and almond milk. Blend to combine. Serves 2-3.

The easiest way to cook beets to use in the smoothie or salads is to wrap each one individually in foil and bake for one hour at 400 degrees.

Jamaican style Callaloo

Jamaican Style Callaloo

 
Callaloo is a popular West Indian green that is actually a variety of Amaranth.  What is really great is that it can also easily be grown here, in southern Ohio. It likes hot summer temperatures, so it is available all summer long. Just this summer we’ve started growing it at Fair Ridge Farm. Callaloo is nutritious as well, high in both iron and calcium. 
 
The below recipe is adapted from Immaculate Bites, a popular Afro-Caribbean food blog. The recipe for Jamaican Style Callaloo is easy, quick, and very delicious. Even those who say they don’t like greens will love this flavorful dish. 
 
Ingredients:
 
1 bunch callao0 (chopped and soaked in water for 5-10 minutes)
2-3 strips of bacon, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1/2 jalapeno pepper, chopped (or more for your taste!)
dash thyme
dash smoked paprika
1 tomato, chopped
salt
 
Directions:
 
Saute bacon over medium-high heat in a large saucepan until crispy. Add onion, garlic, jalepeno, and thyme and saute until onion is slightly translucent. Add tomato and paprika and saute for 2-3 more minutes. Then add the callaloo. I had to add it in batches to not overload the pan. Add it bit by bit, stirring, until the callaloo wilts, and then add more. Add a little water if it is needed. Otherwise cover and simmer for 2-3 minutes, and then continue to cook uncovered for 5-6 more minutes, until liquid is mostly absorbed and callaloo is completely wilted.  Enjoy!
