Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Preserved Meyer Lemons

This easy-peasy recipe from Bon Appetit has rave reviews online—and for good reason!

Ingredients:
2 pounds fingerling potatoes, such as Austrian Crescent halved lengthwise
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons thinly sliced preserved lemon peel

Method:
1. Preheat the oven to 450°. Toss potatoes, oil, and rosemary on a large rimmed baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. Roast, tossing halfway through, until soft and golden brown, 25–30 minutes. Toss warm potatoes with preserved lemon peel.

Preserved Meyer Lemons

Toss these preserved beauties with roasted fingerlings (see recipe!), or whisk the pulp into a salad dressing or a Bloody Mary.

Ingredients:
6 Meyer lemons
⅓ cup kosher salt
⅔ cup fresh Meyer lemon juice

Method:
1. Scrub lemons and dry well. Quarter lemons lengthwise.

2. Toss the lemon wedges with the salt in a bowl and transfer to a sterile 4-cup glass jar. Use a wooden spoon to press the lemons to fit. Add lemon juice and any remaining salt that might be left in the bowl. Seal jar tightly and shake to combine. Let stand at room temperature for 3 days, shaking jar each day. Transfer to the refrigerator for 3 weeks or until rinds are soft. Rinse before using.

Poached Eggs Over Braised Greens on Multigrain Toast

Fantastic for lunch, brunch, a snack or supper!

Ingredients:
4 eggs
4 teaspoons vinegar
1 pound braising greens
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
Multigrain bread, sliced and toasted
Radish and sunflower microgreens, for garnish

Method:
1. To poach the eggs, half-fill a medium saucepan with water and bring to the boil. Add a hefty pinch of salt. Meanwhile, crack each egg into its own small bowl and add a teaspoon of vinegar to each. Stir the boiling water vigorously with a balloon whisk until you have a whirlpool then immediately (and softly!) slip the egg into the pot. Turn the heat down low, and cook for three minutes. Gently lift eggs out of the pot and drain on paper towels.

2. Meanwhile, heat the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the greens and cook until all are just tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper; set aside.

3. To serve, top a piece of multigrain toast with a hearty helping of greens and a poached egg. Season with salt and pepper, and garnish with microgreens.
