Mushroom Potato Galette Recipe Recipe

Mushroom Potato Galette Recipe

05.12.14 by Jackie

Sometimes the simplest things make the most delicious dish. For this vegetarian recipe, I only used 3 ingredients plus seasonings and tried to showcase them in one easy dish. Red potatoes from my garden, button mushrooms and ghee (clarified butter). Very thinly sliced potatoes were arranged into a galette and stuffed with mushrooms. That's all. I also flavored the ghee with oregano and seasoned the potatoes with salt and white pepper.

If you check out my Instagram account, you'll see multiple photos of my gardening experiences, the dishes I prepare for the family and of course, baby Aria. I upload them to Instagram on a daily basis. If you like it, don't hesitate to follow me PhamFataleCom.

It's amazing how easy it is to grow potatoes: bury the potatoes into the soil 3 weeks before the last "frost" date. For the Bay Area, I usually wait until late March. Remember to water regularly. You'll be able to harvest the first potatoes when the flowers open up. Check back often; the main part of the plants should be pulled once the foliage has died.

Yam Burgers with Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe

I hope you had a lovely, relaxing Thanksgiving weekend. We decided to escape the Black Friday craze and stayed home, baking and cooking a lot. I still had a loaf of artisan bread, a few yams, roasted Brussels sprouts, miso gravy and cranberry sauce left.

The obvious dish that came to mind was to make "yamburgers". I served them in toasted brioche buns with cranberry sauce and a roasted garlic butter spread. They fit my Meatless Monday tradition perfectly!

Thanksgiving Potato Recipes

11.27.13 by Jackie

I'm sure there is going to be at least one potato dish at your Thanksgiving table tomorrow evening. Our family loves potatoes and we're planning on splurging on many variations. There is a myriad of culinary possibilities for preparing the vegetables: roasted, boiled, steamed, baked, fried, or mashed. 

Here are a few potato dishes that have been featured to date on PhamFatale.com. You can also find gourmet potato dishes in my first cookbook, Haute Potato, which is an ode to this root vegetable. In this book, I’ve included one of my favorites, which hails from India: a spicy potato cutlet stuffed with ground beef, or kheema. To illustrate the versatility of potatoes, the book is separated into chapters based on the primary flavor profile or texture of the dish. Each section is an exploration of the ways in which the potato can be used. So, though it may start its life in the ground, when combined with the right techniques and ingredients the potato can truly be haute cuisine. You can order it through Amazon or Barnes and Noble; it would also make a wonderful Christmas gift for the foodie in your life.
