Yam Burgers with Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe

Yam Burgers with Roasted Brussels Sprouts

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!

Indian-Inspired Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Tart Recipe Recipe

Indian-Inspired Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Tart Recipe

04.23.13 by Jackie

If you love aloo gobi, which is an Indian potato (aloo) and cauliflower (gobi) dish, I'm confident that you will adore this Indian-inspired savory tart. When I first got married, my husband's grandmother taught me a lot of Indian dishes. The traditional dishes on their own are great, but I also enjoy playing around with them, and incorporating elements into French dishes. I find that the aesthetics of French cuisine works very well with the bold flavors of Indian food.

This particular recipe combines a French onion tart with my twist on the aforementioned aloo gobi. I created a homemade fine-herb tart shell and filled the bottom with onion compote topped with a flavorful Indian cauliflower and sweet potato preparation. The two elements are connected by the natural sweetness of the onions and sweet potatoes. A little Munster cheese on top finishes the dish, though you can substitute with any mild, melt-able cheese.

Sweet Potato Pancake Recipe Recipe

Sweet Potato Pancake Recipe

When I was working on my first cookbook, Haute Potato, I went through a list of all the basic potato recipes I've made throughout the years. There's one in particular I really like but it received a thumbs down from my mostly vegetarian taste-testers, also known as my husband Lulu and his sisters. 

The meat eaters loved the sweet potato pancakes, but the vegetarians thought they were too eggy. For the book I decided to go with the recipes that enjoyed more uniform support, so here's the recipe. And for all the herbivores out there, I haven't tested it with an egg substitute such as lecithin yet, but I will definitely do so in the near future. 

The recipe is ultra-easy. I paired the sweet potato pancakes with veal scallopini and "fines-herbes" flavored cream cheese and pineapple relish on the side. I often make these sweet potato pancakes for Thanksgiving and serve them with poultry. With a couple of big holidays around the corner, this is a recipe to keep in mind.

Sweet Potato Risotto Recipe

With Valentine's Day coming up soon, I thought I'd share with you an easy gourmet potato dish. This recipe didn't make it to my "Haute Potato" cookbook, but it is one of my favorites, nonetheless.

Sweet potatoes are roasted then added to pre-cooked Arborio rice. The finishing touch fot his risotto is a dollop of truffle butter. I recently discovered Thierry Farges' Aux Délices des Bois brand of truffle butter at the Fancy Food Show, and it's amazingly flavorful. You should definitely give this a try!

Thanksgiving Dinner Recipes by Ingredient

It doesn't matter whether you're a newbie or a grizzled veteran; when it comes Thanksgiving dinner, we could use some inspiration. In that spirit, I've compiled a list of my favorite Thanksgiving appropriate recipes. I listed them by ingredient: sweet potato, potato, pumpkinbread, greens, poultry, cranberriespecans, so you can decide which one works best for you. Happy planning!

There are many recipes that are perfect for Thanksgiving in my first cookbook "Haute Potato". Two of my personal favorites are the potato cigars and the lavender and white chocolate potato torte. If you order it today from Amazon or Barnes and Noble, there's still a good chance it will arrive before Thanksgiving. And if not, it's packed with great holiday recipes as well!
