Trattoria Stefano's Root Vegetable Hash Recipe
"Squash Recipes Online"
1 medium red onion, cut into
1 medium yellow onion, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 to 2 medium sized leeks, cut in half lengthwise, cleaned and sliced
6 T. extra-virgin olive oil (divided)
1/2 lb. carrots, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
Salt and pepper to taste
1 lb. potatoes, peeled, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 lb. parsnip, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 lb. turnip, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 lb. butternut squash, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 C. chicken stock
4 C. chopped Tuscan kale or Swiss chard, or 2 cups each (stems removed)
2 T. butter
2 T. extra-virgin olive oil
In large casserole, saute onions and leeks in 4 tablespoons olive oil over
medium heat until translucent, 10 to 15 minutes. Add carrots, season with salt
and pepper and continue cooking 5 minutes. Add potatoes and season. Stir and add
parsnips, turnips and squash.
Season and cook 10 minutes. Add stock to avoid scorching as necessary, 1/2 cup
at a time (some sticking is good). Stir occasionally. Add kale or chard, season
and moisten with more stock. Cover and steam undisturbed 10 to 12 minutes until
wilted. Uncover and stir to incorporate greens, continue to cook until
vegetables are tender and liquid is almost evaporated, about 30 minutes. Check
seasoning and chill overnight.
Heat butter with remaining 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. In 12-inch saute
pan, add hash and spread to cover pan. Brown on one side, then turn over to
brown other side, about 10 to 12 minutes per side.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.
