4-5 medium tomatoes, wedged
1/2 thinly sliced red onion (or to taste)
10 big basil leaves, torn

Prepare the Bread: Tear it into bite sized pieces, or cut into cubes and air or oven dry, or spread lightly with Great Harvest Garlic Parmesan Butter, grill and cut into cubes.

Prepare the Vegetables: Slice red onion, soak for about 10 minutes in ice cold water, then drain and pat dry.

Make the Vinaigrette: Pour the olive oil, vinegar, pepper and salt into a bowl and whisk.

Great Harvest Gourmet Kale Salad

Great Harvest Restaurant Recipe

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 clove minced garlic
1/3 cup red wine or sherry vinegar
2 teaspoon honey
1 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
kosher salt and black pepper

Whisk together the mustard, vinegar, and honey in small mixing bowl.  Slowly drizzle in olive oil while whisking to emulsify.  Add the thyme and season to taste with salt and pepper.  This will make more than you need for the salad.  Store in a jar with a tight fitting lid in the refrigerator for up to one week; shake well before using.

Candied Seeds and Nuts:
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup walnuts
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon honey

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. On a parchment or foil lined sheet tray combine seeds, nuts, oil, and spices.  Roast for 10 to 15 minutes, remove from heat and add honey.  Using a rubber spatula, stir to completely coat.  Return the tray to the oven and continue to roast until honey is evaporated, about five minutes more.  Remove from the oven and let cool.  Break apart with your hands as necessary.

Salad and Assembly:
2 bunches kale, ideally different varieties/colors, washed and dried; stems removed and cut into 1/2 inch strips
1/2 cup golden raisins
1 cup seed/nut mixture (see above)
1/2 cup vinaigrette
kosher salt and black pepper to taste

Toss all the ingredients together and mix well.  Serve either in a large salad bowl, or on individual plates – or, of course, accompanied by Great Harvest bread from your local bakery. Serves 6 as a side dish.

Great Harvest Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Great Harvest Restaurant Recipe

1 whole butternut squash, about 2 1/2 pounds
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 onions, sliced
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
2 granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and quartered
1 leek, split crosswise, cleaned, and sliced thin
4 stalks celery, diced
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 quart low sodium chicken broth
2 cups of water
1 bay leaf
2 tablespoons fresh thyme, divided
1/2 cup crème fraiche or sour cream
milk, as needed, about 1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon sliced chives
pumpkin seeds for garnish
kosher salt and black pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Split the squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Place squash halves on a parchment or foil lined sheet tray and rub cut sides with canola oil and salt and pepper. Turn cut side down and roast in 350 degree oven for approximately 30 minutes until soft and lightly browned. Allow to cool slightly and scoop flesh from the skin. Discard the skin.

Meanwhile, in a large pot set over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter and add onions. Season with salt and pepper. Cook slowly, stirring occasionally until deeply caramelized, about 30 minutes. Adjust heat as necessary. Remove onions from pan, add 1 tablespoon of the butter and the apples. Cook over medium heat until apples are golden brown and slightly soft, turning as necessary. Add leeks, celery, and garlic and sweat a few minutes until slightly soft. Add the squash, the chicken broth, the water, the onions, and 1 tablespoon of the thyme. Season with salt and pepper. Cover the pot and simmer over low heat for 25-30 minutes until the vegetables and apples are completely soft. Remove the bay leaf.

Carefully transfer soup to a blender in batches and puree until very smooth. Adjust consistency with water if necessary. Return soup to pot, add remaining thyme, taste for seasoning, and adjust as necessary.

Mix crème fraiche or sour cream with chives and thin with a touch of milk until it is a consistency you can drizzle. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
To serve, ladle soup into bowls. Drizzle with crème fraiche mixture and top with pumpkin seeds. Serve with grilled or toasted Great Harvest Bread from your local bakery. Serves 4-6.
