  • Salad

2C water

1C bulgar wheat

1ct yellow squash, small dice

1ct zucchini, small dice

2ct red bell pepper, small dice

2ct Roma tomatoes, small dice

2ct roasted sweet corn

1/2 ea red onion, small dice

1 bunch parsley, chopped

Method:

  1. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil and season with 1 tablespoon of sea salt.  Add bulgar and cook until tender, all the water should be absorbed.
  2. While the bulgar cooks, roast the corn in the husk in a 375F degree oven for 20 minutes.  Cool enough to be able to handle when cutting off the kernels.  SAVE THE COBS FOR STOCK.
  3. Wash the rest of the produce under cold running water and small dice.  Add to a large mixing bowl with the corn.
  4. Add the cooled bulgar to the mixing bowl and toss everything with 1/4C of vinaigrette.  Taste for seasoning and adjust as necessary.

Blue Cornmeal Cookies:

Yield: 32-40 cookies

img_4149.jpg

1 1/2c blue cornmeal, Bow & Arrow Foods – Ute Tribe

1 1/4c all purpose flour

1tsp baking soda

1/2tsp baking powder

1/2tsp Kosher salt

1c butter

1 1/2c organic cane sugar

1ct egg, large

1tsp vanilla extract

Method:

  1. Combine cornmeal, flour, baking soda, baking powder and kosher salt and set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar.  Once the mixture is light in color and texture, mix in the egg and vanilla until well incorporated.
  3. Mix in dry ingredients until well blended.
  4. Scoop out to desired size, I like a 1/3oz – 1/2oz scoop which is optimum for sharing at parties, and place on a greased or lined sheet pan at least 1 inch apart and gently press down.  Bake at 350F degrees for 8 minutes.  When a light golden color starts to develop around the edges the cookies are done.  Pull them out of the oven immediately because carry over cooking will finish baking the cookie through the center.
