Sous Vide Fingerling Potatoes

Recipe: Sous Vide Fingerling Potatoes

Fingerling potatoes are a fun week-night treat that folks of all ages enjoy. Using sous vide elevates this staple with fluffy potatoes and crisp skins. Basting the potato skins with the cooking liquid imparts both color and flavour. If you're feeling adventurous then you can easily substitute tahini or shallot-yogurt with mint for an extra punch when dipping and serving.

Recipe: Sous Vide Eggplant Parmesan

Eggplant parmesan is, to me, the perfect comfort meal. It's a bit of work, but with sous vide eggplant turns buttery and soft - with none of the bitterness of scrapy textures you might have (unforunately) experienced.

To simplify this recipe, feel free to use your facourite store bought tomato sauce. The one included in this recipe is a personal favourite, but nonna knows best.

Sous Vide Squash Recipe

Acorn squash is a once in a season treat that, for many, represents fall to a 'T.' It also happens to be a prime candidate for the sous vide tradition.

Although typically baked, acorn squash responds tremendously well to the gentle application of continuous heat. This allows the squash to not only keep its vibrant color, but also allows the cook to control precisely how firm the acorn squash turns out.

Sous Vide Fennel Recipe

Cooking fennel, that wily vegetable oft ignored in grocery stores, is made simple when cooking with sous vide.

Fennel has a distinctive licorice scent to it which can be off-putting for some. When cooked, however, fennel takes on a light, crisp flavor with hints of anise. Fennel can be used in much the same way as celery. Although great cooked, it can also be eaten raw and used in salads. Unfortunately, thanks to fennel’s many layers cooking it evenly can be a challenge. With the precise application of heat through sous vide cooking, however, fennel can be prepared perfectly every time.

Sous Vide Pumpkin Recipe

If you’re planning on making pumpkin pie or pumpkin soup this year consider preparing it with sous vide.

Traditionally pumpkin is roasted at a high temperature prior to being used in soups, pies or the like. As any chef will tell you, high temperatures and uneven heat can lead to both flavor and color loss. Visually a meal is a success when the colors of the raw vegetable are preserved after cooking. Preparing pumpkin via sous vide is a great way to prime it for being used in pies, soups or even just eaten on its own.

sous vide asparagus

Sous Vide Asparagus

Asparagus tastes great when its seasoned well, but achieving a good consistency can be extremely difficult when cooking using traditional methods. If you're like me, your asparagus usually ends up chewy and hard to cut up. No longer with sous vide!

For only a short time at a high temperature, you can get asparagus that is perfectly cooked and a pleasure to eat. You can season the asparagus however you'd like, just butter works fine as does flavored olive oils.
