Farmers Market Tomato Soup

Chef Jenn Magrey 
Newgate Farm tomatoes


1 tablespoon butter
12-15 tomatoes cut into medium dice. Any and all tomatoes work. It’s a great recipe for those slightly bruised and not so pretty! 
1/2 onion diced -
1 carrot (average sized) medium dice
Two Guys from Woodbridge Basil - small chiffonade
Cream or half-and-half (optional)

Melt butter into soup pot/sauce pan over heat medium heat. 
Add onions and carrots and sauté until translucent and beginning to soften. About 5 minutes. 
Add the tomatoes, seeds skins and all. Add about 1 teaspoon kosher salt, a few cracks of black pepper and a teaspoon of sugar. 

Stir to combine. Cool until the tomatoes have softened and a lot of liquid is in pan. No need to add any water or broth. 

Using an immersion hand blender, purée the soup until there are no chunkiness left. Taste and add a little more salt, pepper and sugar if needed. Add the fresh basil chiffonade and a little cream or half and half, if desired

Vegetarian Spring Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce

Chef Jenn Magrey

Peanut Sauce with Ginger: 
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/2cup creamy peanut butter
Juice from 2 limes
2 tablespoons chili paste (or sriracha)
1-tablespoon fresh grated ginger
1-tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons Rice Wine Vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame seeds if desired. 

Whisk all together and serve with Spring Rolls
**If too thick, add a little warm water to thin to desired consistency
*Can make ahead up to one week and kept in refrigerator

Vegetable Spring Rolls 

Rice Wrappers – about 25 wrappers
3-5 oz. very thin vermicelli bean noodles (rice noodles) – soak in hot water for about 2-4 minutes. See package instructions.  Drain and toss with a little sesame oil - snip with scissors to break up noodles.  
1 cucumber – seeded and cut into thin matchsticks (julienned)
1-2 carrots – cut into thin matchsticks or shredded
1 red bell pepper - cut into thin matchsticks
Scallions- cut into thin matchsticks
Purple Cabbage – Shredded finely
Mint Leaves – Chiffonade
Cilantro – chopped 

Drag the rice paper wrapper through the warm water quickly until just dampened. Place a few sticks of carrot, cucumber, red pepper, scallions and a sprinkle of cabbage on top of the bottom 1/3 of the rice paper. Then add a small amount of noodles, followed by the mint leaves and the cilantro. 

Do not overstuff the rolls.  Roll everything up tightly. To do so, gently pull up the bottom of the roll and roll over the filling. Then, roll and use your hands to tuck the filling in as you go. It is as if you are rolling a burrito! Tuck in the sides as you go. Start small then add more, as needed, as you roll each one. It takes practice.  

Serve with Dipping sauce! 

*If you need to make ahead of time, separate the rolls with wax paper as to not stick together.

Four Mile River Farm kielbasa

1 link of FRESH Raw KIELBASA – Four Mile River Farms – cut into 3 inch pieces
3 bunches any greens – rabe, kale, romaine, spinach, mustard etc – roughly chopped (Find your greens at Four Root Farm, Two Guys From Woodbridge, Leap Frog From, Newgate Farm and a few others right at the Madison Market!)
2 cloves garlic minced
Splash of apple cider vinegar

In a large frying pan over medium heat, cook the raw kielbasa with a little water, covered,  until cooked through, about 15-20 minutes. Remove the pieces from the pan and set them aside to cool slightly. Add the greens in stages to the same pan. No need to wipe clean.

As the greens are wilting, add the minced garlic. Slice the sausage into bite sized pieces and add to the greens. Mix and continue sautéing until the greens are tender. About 8 minutes total. Add a splash of vinegar and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Serve! Is excellent tossed with cooked pasta or spaetzle noodles!

Madison Market Veggie Fritters

Chef Stuart London, Executive Chef, Mystic Market Kitchen and Eatery

3 lbs. Fresh Vegetables from Four Root Farm, Newgate Farm,  Chatfield Hollow Farm and Two Guys from Woodbridge, finely shredded, sliced or chopped, such as Zucchini, Summer squash, Eggplant, Corn, Peppers, Scallion, Basil and Shitake mushrooms, Micro Arugula.
2 Eggs from Beaverbrook Farm
1 cup Raw Milk from Beaverbrook Farm
½ cup Flour
!/2 cup Yellow Corn Flour or Corn Starch if you can’t find fine yellow corn flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp Sea salt
Fresh ground pepper
Olive oil blend as needed to pan fry.

* If you want this gluten free, substitute GF Flour mix for wheat flour.

To make these into a light summer dinner to be serviced with a salad, add an additional ½ cup of ricotta or feta cheese for some protein.

In a 3 or 4 quart bowl mix the eggs, milk, flours, baking powder, salt and pepper into a batter. Add in the cut vegetables and fold/mix well to coat all the vegetables. Heat 1/4 inch of hot oil in an electric frying pan set to 350 (this is preferable, so you can maintain a constant temperature), or in a heavy cast iron pan on the stove (a heavier pan will help keep an even heat if you don't have an electric frying pan). When the oil is hot (350), drop the batter by the large spoonful into the oil. When the pancakes start to brown turn them over and brown on the other side, 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and drain on paper towels, keep warm in oven until all are done. May be enjoyed with Hummus or Tzatziki.

¼ cup olive oil
2 tbsp Smoked Paprika

Meanwhile, heat a heavy 4- or 5-quart Dutch oven over medium-low. Add ¼ cup olive oil and sauté the Red onion and cauliflower, keeping the pot covered and stirring every couple of minutes, breaking up the cauliflower until it is cooked through. Pour in the roux, and add the smoked paprika and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Add the Milk and whisk almost constantly while you bring the chowder to a simmer on medium-low heat.

Once the chowder is simmering, add the seafood and fresh herbs and simmer for about 5-8 minutes more. Check for salt and pepper, enjoy!

Gluten Free Version

To make the chowder without a roux, increase olive oil for sauté to ½ cup and add additional ½ head Newgate Farm Cauliflower

In a heavy 4 or 5 quart Dutch oven on medium low heat sauté the red onion and cauliflower in 1/2 cup olive oil, covered, stirring every couple of minutes breaking up the cauliflower as you go until the cauliflower is cooked. Remove half this cooked mixture and puree in a food processor or with a stick blender.
