Chef & Sugar Olives owner, Jennifer Balin is dedicated to making wholesome, healthy (and happy) food. We've asked her to share some of her favorite St. Patrick's Day recipes. Enjoy!
Uncle Paddy's Irish Soda Bread
3 cups of all purpose flour
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup raisins
Preheat your oven to 350*
Combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and baking powder in a large bowl and whisk together. Add the buttermilk and stir with a wooden spoon to form a dough. Transfer to a floured surface and knead by folding the dough into itself a few times. Form a round shape and cut an X into the top. Bake for 35-40 minutes, enjoy!
1 cup steel cut oats
1 cup skim milk
3 ½ cups water
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons light maple syrup
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon salt
Combine all ingredients in a 2 quart crockpot, turn on low and go and get some sleep!
Good morning. This breakfast needs no extras, but feel free to add dried fruit, butter or milk.
Lucky Corned Beef Hash
3 tablespoons olive oil
½ cup red bell pepper, finely chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups corned beef, medium chop
3 potatoes, cooked and finely diced
½ teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
½ teaspoon fresh oregano, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
In a large sauté pan, heat the oil and add the pepper and onion. Cook over medium heat for 5-6 minutes to soften and lightly brown. Add the garlic and then the beef, potatoes and spices. Stir well and then spread the hash evenly over the bottom of the pan. Use a smaller sauté pan to weigh down the hash and cook it until brown, 10 minutes. Now you can create a golden crust, be careful not to burn! Flip over the hash in one piece and then cook another 7 minutes. Serve hot with poached eggs, yum!
