Nourish, Sequim’s new garden-to-plate restaurant and gathering place, is featuring a series of meals created using items from Nash’s farm share boxes each week.
Bubble and squeak is made in most homes in England on a Monday as a way to use the vegetables left over from Sunday roast dinner. Sometimes it’s served from the pan like a stir-fry or made into patties. The dish is named for the bubbling and squeaking sounds it makes as it is cooked. It is most often accompanied by leftover cold meat and relishes or pickles. Tanya, one of the owners of Nourish, says, “We have adapted the idea to use some of Nash’s wonderful cabbages in a different way. We have used fresh vegetables rather than pre-cooked.”
4 tablespoons butter or oil
1/2 cup onion, chopped
Leftover mashed potatoes
Leftover vegetables, like cabbage, carrots, and, in winter, Brussels sprouts. Today we are using red and Napa cabbage, steamed lightly.
Salt and pepper
In a large sauté pan, fry onions until soft. Add the other vegetables and fry for 10 minutes, turning over every couple minutes to get a thorough reheat with a little browning on the cabbage.
You can also form the mixture into little patties and fry individually.
Serve with a good-sized dollop of Ila’s Fiery Hot and Heavenly Sweet or Walla Walla Relish.
