Tomato Tartare

Tomato Tartare

This recipe, by Katherine Adkins, was awarded "Best Starter/Side" in VT's 2014 Reader Recipe Contest. This elegant side dish mimics beef tartare with slow-roasted tomatoes standing in for meat. “As my knowledge of spices has improved, so has my creativity,” Adkins says. “I’ve begun trying to make up recipes as I go, which was the case when I decided to take a new spin on beef tartare. Roasting the tomatoes gave them a full flavor and the meaty aesthetic I desired while remaining true to the main ingredient.”

Butternut Squash and Wild Rice Salad

Butternut Squash and Wild Rice Salad

Finely diced raw butternut squash is stirred into warm wild rice so that it cooks slightly but still stays firm. The resulting salad gets chilled, then topped with a roasted fruit and vegetable medley.
