I had more noodles lines up for all y’all but seeing as how today is 4/20, here’s the druggiest recipe I had in the archives. I’m calling it a “Ruckus Sammich” because much like the Wu-Tang Clan, it is chock full ofdistinct flavors all jockeying for prominence while at the same time coming together in a harmonious whole. This sandwich ain’t nuthin’ to fuck wit.
(N.B. It is unlikely you have all the ingredients listed in the recipe at hand. Substitutions are noted, but each will impact the overall flavor, which is carefully balanced lest it become an incoherent pile of slop. No substitutions have been listed for certain ingredients e.g. the peanut butter powder and Chinese raisin bread because the alternatives–peanut butter and domestic raisin bread, respectively–have much stronger flavors than those called for in the recipe. Basically, not sure how useful this recipe will be to anyone but here it is anyway.)
A truly decadent sandwich of unexpected flavor combinations, creating a flavor explosion in your mouth with the fury of a thousand fiery red suns.
- 2 slices Chinese raisin bread
- 1 tbsp goat cheese chevre (or cream cheese)
- 1 tsp truffle honey
- 3/4 c kabocha (or other pumpkin/squash), sliced into thin strips
- 1/2 c rice flour (or AP flour)
- 1 tsp peanut butter powder
- 1 tsp Japanese curry powder
- 1 tbsp ghee (or clarified butter)
- 1 c mustard greens (or other spicy greens), chopped
- 1 tbsp duck fat/bacon/onion/garlic confit (or 1 tbsp bacon/pancetta, diced + 1 small clove garlic, minced)
- Toast Chinese raisin bread to desired level of crunchiness. (I think just short of medium-dark gives it the perfect texture contrast with the rest of the dish.)
- Combine peanut butter powder, curry and rice flour in shallow bowl. Dredge kabocha in the this dry mix.
- Add ghee to a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Lightly fry the pumpkin on both sides.
- In a separate pan, add the confit. Wilt the mustard greens.
- Spread truffle honey on one slice of bread. Spread goat cheese chevre on the other.
- Combine all the elements into a sandwich.
