Indulge in Comfort Foods
Who says comfort food has to be unhealthy?
Here at Gardenuity, we firmly believe that you can make big strides towards good health simply by adding more fresh herbs and veggies to the foods you already enjoy eating.
Besides, what’s more comforting than knowing exactly where your herbs and vegetables came from, and exactly what went into growing them?
When you use fresh produce from your garden, give yourself the comfort of this knowledge and the amazing flavor that comes along with it.
Roasted Shishito Peppers + Hollandaise SauceCourse: SidesCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy
By Ina Garten from Modern Comfort Food
1 pound shishito peppers
Salt and pepper
3 extra large egg yolks
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 pinches cayenne pepper
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
- Place the shishito peppers on a sheet plan with 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Toss the peppers to coat them with oil, and spread them out in one layer.
- Roast for 10-12 minutes, until tender but still bright green.
- While the peppers are roasting, whisk the egg yolks, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and 3/4 teaspoon salt together in a medium microwave-safe bowl.
- Slowly pour in the melted butter, whisking constantly.
- Microwave the mixture on high for 15 seconds.
- Remove the bowl from the microwave and whisk again. Continue microwaving and whisking in 10 second increments, just until the hollandaise mixture is thickened and smooth like mayonnaise.
- Serve the shishito peppers with the hollandaise sauce on the side for dipping.
