Midday Fix: Spaghetti Aglio e Olio con Noci Tostate and details on the Highwood Garlic Fest

Spaghetti Aglio e Olio con Noci tostate:
This is the spaghetti I make for friends after a long night out or when my husband wakes me up in the middle of the night with hungry buddies. Made with ingredients I always have on hand or most home always have in their pantry. It’s fast, easy, and satisfying.

Serves 4, but is easily doubled.

Ingredients:
3 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus more for serving
Use as much garlic as you like, minced. I use about half a head for a pound of pasta.
Half a bunch of fresh parsley, chopped (I keep this in the freezer)
1/4 -½ cup chopped walnuts
1-pound good quality spaghetti
Salt & Pepper to taste
Grated parmesan cheese for serving.

1.Put the water for cooking the pasta on to boil and when it is boiling salt the water, cook the pasta al dente, reserve a ladle full of the water before draining and putting the drained pasta in a bowl.
2.In a dry skillet toast the walnuts over low heat and set aside.
3.Using the same skillet, or a second one if you are not too sleepy to watch the nuts so they don’t burn while you chop and then sauté the garlic and parsley in the olive oil.
4.When the garlic is browned to your liking add it to the bowl of pasta. Add more olive oil, a splash of the pasta water, and toss with the nuts. Add more salt if needed and a few grinds of fresh pepper.
Serve with more oil on the table along with the parmesan cheese.

Creamy Double-Garlic Mashed Potatoes
by Alexa Weibel from NYT Cooking
Creamy Double-Garlic Mashed PotatoesYIELD:
8 to 12 servings (8 cups)
TIME:
1 1/4 hours
INGREDIENTS FOR THE ROASTED GARLIC:
3 heads garlic
6 teaspoons olive oil

FOR THE GARLIC CHIPS:
Kosher salt
1 cup neutral oil, such as canola or vegetable oil
6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced crosswise

FOR THE POTATOES:
4 pounds red or russet potatoes (see Tip)
2 cups heavy cream
2 fresh bay leaves, or 4 dried bay leaves
1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary, plus more for garnish1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, plus more for garnish
Kosher salt and black pepper
¾ cup unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks), cut into small cubes, plus more for serving

PREPARATION:
1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high. Heat the oven to 400 degrees.

2. Prepare the roasted garlic: Set each head of garlic on its side and cut off (and discard) the top 1/4 portion at the pointed end. Transfer each head of garlic to a separate piece of aluminum foil, cut-side up, and drizzle each head with 2 teaspoons oil. Pull up the surrounding aluminum foil and crimp tightly to seal. Transfer to the oven and roast until the garlic is softened and caramelized, 40 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the size of the heads. Set aside to cool.

3. Prepare the garlic chips: Line a plate with paper towels. In a small shallow saucepan or frying pan, heat the canola oil over medium-high until shimmering. Working in batches, fry the sliced garlic, stirring often, until just starting to turn golden, 30 seconds to 1 minute. (They’ll continue to darken from the residual heat, so you’ll want to remove them from the hot oil before they’re fully golden brown.) Transfer garlic chips to the plate using a slotted spoon. Season with salt and repeat with remaining sliced garlic. Set aside.

4. Prepare the boiled potatoes: Fill a large pot with water and season generously with salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Fill a medium bowl about three-quarters full with water. Working with one potato at a time, peel each potato, then add it to the bowl of water. Next, working with one potato at a time, dice each into 1-inch pieces, returning each to the bowl of water after chopping. Drain the diced potatoes, then carefully add them to the pot of boiling water. Return the water to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-high and cook until potatoes are soft and can easily be pierced with a fork, 13 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a colander to drain.

5. Meanwhile, prepare the herbed cream: Add the cream, bay leaves, rosemary and thyme to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high, about 5 minutes. (The mixture will bubble up vigorously, which helps reduce the liquid and concentrate the flavor.) Strain the mixture, discarding the solids, and rinse out the saucepan. Return the infused cream to the saucepan and season with salt and pepper. Cover and set aside. (You should have about 1 1/3 cups.)

6. Return the cooked potatoes to the pot along with the herbed cream and cubed butter. Squeeze the roasted garlic cloves from two heads into the potato mixture, discarding the skins, and mash until creamy. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and add more roasted garlic, if desired. (Store leftover roasted garlic in the refrigerator for 1 week.)

7. Transfer mashed potatoes to a serving bowl, dot with a generous pat of butter and sprinkle with rosemary, thyme and black pepper. Top with garlic chips, and serve immediately.

Roasted Garlic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe:

  • 1 bulb of garlic
  • 1/4 cup hazelnut oil
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks), softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 extra-large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1-1/2 cups unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • Scant cup of rolled oats
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cups of fountain chocolate
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped hazelnuts

-Preheat oven to 400° F. Remove the outer papery skins of the garlic cut the bottom off, leave the inner skins on the cloves. Place the garlic in a tin foil and pour a little oil on to wrap and bake @35 mins. Cool till you can touch

-Bake the garlic until it’s very tender, checking after 30 minutes. It will take about 45 minutes to roast this many cloves. Test for doneness by squeezing a clove or two—it should be soft and golden. Remove from the oven and let the garlic cool a bit. When it’s cool enough to handle, squeeze the cloves into the oil and discard the skins.

-In a food processor or a mixing bowl, combine butter, roasted garlic, and hazelnut oil, and process until well blended. Add the sugars and process until combined. Beat in eggs and add vanilla, and blend well until smooth and creamy.

-In a small bowl, combine flour, whole-wheat flour, oats, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and process, stopping to scrape down the sides. The dough will be stiff.

-Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts. Drop the dough by the rounded small cookie scooper about 2 inches apart onto ungreased pan on parchment paper.

-Bake the cookies in a preheated 350° F oven for 10 to 12 minutes, until they’re just golden brown. Remove to baking racks to cool. They will keep for a week stored in a tightly closed tin or plastic container, or they can be frozen for up to a month. Makes 4 dozen 2-inch cookies
