Gallery, Studio and Life: 87, Just Food

I have been thinking about food and what to cook over the next couple of days.  I think I found three interesting recipes.  Maybe 4.  If you will be cooking, have a look.  Hopefully,  I have helped you.  This recipe, Spinach, Sweet Potatoes and Feta sounds really yummy.

Spinach, Sweet Potatoes and Feta Cheese Veggie Dish

A ho-hum sheet-pan of potatoes and greens this is not. Caramelizing sweet potatoes and wilting soft greens on a sheet pan is a smart way to cook two vegetables at once in this efficient and exciting recipe. There are bolts of pickled jalapeño, salty feta and scallions, but the pickled jalapeño brine is the key. It’s used like a spicy vinegar, seeping into the sweet potatoes to complement their flavor. To make it a meal, top with a fried egg or roasted Mexican chorizo, swaddle in a pita or tortilla with tahini or sour cream, spoon onto grains or beans, or into omelets or frittatas. Leftovers will keep refrigerated for up to a week.


2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled or unpeeled, cut into 1-inch pieces

4 tablespoons neutral oil, such as canola or grapeseed

Salt and pepper

2 tablespoons sliced pickled jalapeños, plus 3 tablespoons brine

10 ounces baby spinach, kale, mustard greens or arugula

3 scallions, thinly sliced

2 to 3 ounces feta, sliced or crumbled

vegetable recipe


Step 1

Heat the oven to 450 degrees. On a sheet pan, toss the sweet potatoes with 3 tablespoons oil and season with salt and pepper. Spread into an even layer and roast until fork-tender and browned in spots, 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 2

Drizzle the sweet potatoes with the pickled jalapeño brine, then pile on the baby spinach. You may need to stir the spinach into the potatoes to help everything fit. Drizzle the greens with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast, stirring halfway through, until the spinach is wilted and the liquid on the sheet pan has evaporated, 5 to 7 minutes.

Step 3

Sprinkle with the pickled jalapeños, scallions and feta. Serve warm or at room temperature.
