Herby Picnic Potato Salad

gks_potato_salad_01

A couple of weeks ago we had a little picnic for our baby boy with family and a few close friends. It was kind of a combined (very delayed) Welcome-to-the-World-Isac and Happy-First-Birthday celebration and it turned out to be a real gem of a day. It has basically been raining in Sweden all summer, but this day was filled with sunshine, good food, laughter and lots of chubby babies. Despite having written two cookbooks, we actually rarely cook for our friends. Instead we prefer going the picnic route, having everyone bringing something to share. It just makes it a lot easier to plan these kind of things instead of having to do everything yourself. It also makes for a more fun and spontaneous event.

We did actually end up cooking quite a lot anyway for this picnic. We made a few picnic pies, two monster versions of our Blueberry Cake (not shattered this time) and an adapted version of the potato salad from Sara Forte’s latest book Bowl+Spoon.

We got to read her book manuscript before it was published as we were asked to write a little quote for the back. Here is what we wrote: “We love that Sara’s recipes are always focused on ‘real’ ingredients, simple to prepare, and undoubtedly delicious. The bowl theme is brilliant and exactly how we prefer to eat our everyday meals.”

Apart from a few other favourites in the book, we have been making different versions of Sara’s potato salad at least five times this summer. It’s incredibly flavourful with lots of fresh herbs and capers, and also has a tangy zing from white wine vinegar. The original recipe calls for hard-boiled eggs and it’s an excellent combo, but we have also been playing with other (vegan) sources of protein. One time we tried beluga lentils and here we are using chickpeas. We added kale and apple to make it less of a side dish and more of a complete meal. As the name implies, this is great to pack on a picnic but it is also a good indoor meal. And when your kids are tired of having potato salad for the fifth time, you can fry the leftovers in a pan into a quick and flavourful hash.

Herby Picnic Potato Salad with Kale, Apple & Chickpeas
Serves 6
Recipe adapted from Bowl+Spoon by Sara & Hugh Forte. We usually make an extra large (almost double) batch of the vinaigrette because it’s so good. If your white wine vinegar is very sweet, you can add some lemon juice for extra zing.

2 pounds/1 kg small new potatoes

Coarse Herb Vinaigrette
3 tbsp pickled capers
2 spring onions or green onions
2 cups loosely packed herbs (a mix of chives, parsley, basil and top greens from the celery)
2 tbsp white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup cold pressed oil
sea salt and black pepper, to taste

2 apples, diced
3 celery stalks (save the top greens for the vinaigrette), finely diced
2 leaves kale, chard or spinach, chopped
1 can (14 oz/400 g) cooked chickpeas, rinsed

Put the potatoes in a large pot, cover them with water and bring the water to a boil. Boil for 12-15 minutes until they are cooked through but not falling apart – just until you can easily pierce a sharp knife through the center. Drain and set aside to cool.

In a food processor, blitz capers and their brine, onions, basil, parsley, chives, celery greens, vinegar, lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper until you get a coarse vinaigrette. Quarter the potatoes and collect them in a larger mixing bowl. Pour the vinaigrette over the just-cooled potatoes and gently toss to coat. It will look like a lot of dressing, but the potatoes soak it up as they sit. Stir celery, apples, kale and chickpeas into the potatoes. Taste for salt and pepper. Serve at room temperature.

Breakfast. As I get older, I tend to realize small things that make my life great.  Things like not using an alarm clock (I have a dog for that), withdrawing from pop culture (I had to look up what YOLO meant and the first time I head Call Me, Maybe was actually the Cookie Monster version), and I’ve stopped letting politics upset me (personally I think Jed Bartlet should be president and for those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, I don’t own cable and am currently watching The West Wing for the first time).

However, one of the things I cherish most is the ability to sit down, drink coffee, and eat breakfast every morning.  Rarely do I have a morning when I’m running out the door, feeling stressed and in a hurry (luckily my classes start late enough that time is not something I lack).

When I worked at the bakery my wake-up time was 3:00 to get out the door by 3:30 and start work by 3:50.  My breakfast would often be a scone or danish that we made that morning while I was whipping up pies, cookies, and cheesecakes.  I didn’t realize until then how much I valued my slow-going, coffee filled mornings.  I realized that mornings and breakfast were my time to gear up for the day and without it, I’d often feel lost.

 Plus, I do love a good, savory breakfast.

Pesto Potato Skillet with Eggs | http://naturallyella.com

This potato skillet is perfect for those mornings and if you are one of those people who has to run out the door in the morning, tuck it aside for a leisurely weekend. Make the pesto ahead of time for one less step you would need to do in the morning (and a few extra minutes of sleep).

My pestos vary depending on the machine I’m using to make them. My food processor and regular blender make a pesto where the sauce retains some texture from the basil. However, using a high-powered blender (like my Blendtec), creates a green sauce (pictured here). I actually prefer to leave some basil intact, but I wanted to give a heads-up just incase your skillet doesn’t look like mine.

Roasted Potatoes with Harissa

Roasted Potatoes with Harissa | http://naturallyella.com

I have my weaknesses and potatoes top that list. I’m often the girl that orders/makes a perfectly good salad but will tack on an order of fries. I don’t discriminate either, any kind of potato will do- red, sweet, gold, russet. Each has a use in my kitchen. This recipe for roasted potatoes is a step up from my normal, plain roasted potatoes. While the harissa softens the crispness of the potato, the flavor makes up for it.

Quinoa Flakes | http://naturallyella.comMaple Almond Quinoa Granola | http://naturallyella.com

For most meals, I like a bit of unpredictability. My lunches are usually off the cuff with whatever I have in the house while my dinners are a bit more planned, but are still usually a trial run or test of a recipe I’m working on. Breakfast, however, is my constant. 95% of the time, it’s oatmeal, eggs, or granola + yogurt with the other 5% reserved for waffles, pancakes, and other rich breakfast foods. Breakfast is very predictable.

I do, however, like to mix things up a bit. My oatmeal toppings vary depending on what’s in season and eggs could take the form of an omelette or egg skillet. My granola is rarely made from just oats and more likely to contain an mix of grains. Or, it may be made entirely from something else, like this quinoa granola.

I have a different quinoa granola on the blog made from whole quinoa but this particular recipe utilizes quinoa flakes. I’ve used my favorite base granola recipe that contains minimal ingredients but provides enough glue to hold everything together. This quinoa granola isn’t overly powerful in flavor but instead, is a nice boost to a morning parfait or granola bowl.
