It amuses me that this outstanding recipe has such an unassuming name. It should be called something like "The Most Excellent Combination of Potato and Other Vegetables You Can Have the Pleasure of Knowing." We made the recipe at our Culinary Communion class recently, and it was so popular at the dinner table that the serving bowl and spoon were licked clean. The serving bowl full was dipped into even before we sat down at the table - you can see how much was missing, already, in my photo. We couldn't remember what the name of it was as it was passed around the table, so we fondly called it "Green Glop." So, here it is. From Chef Gabriel Claycamp comes this keeper recipe for Green Gl... um, I mean Puree Verte. Posted with permission.
