How to Make Creamy Riced Potatoes


  • 3 ounces semolina bread, sliced 1/4 inch thick and cut into 1/2-inch sticks (2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons freshly grated pecorino cheese
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomato halves
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chopped thyme
  • Salt
  • One 1-pound head radicchio—halved lengthwise, cored and thinly sliced

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. On a large, rimmed baking sheet, toss the semolina bread with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the pecorino and season with pepper. Bake for about 8 minutes, until the croutons are golden brown.

  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the sun-dried tomatoes with the water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over moderate heat until the tomatoes are tender, about 8 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the tomatoes to a work surface. Boil the cooking liquid over high heat until reduced to 2 tablespoons, about 7 minutes. Let cool.

  3. Coarsely chop half of the sun-dried tomatoes and reserve. Mince the remaining tomatoes and transfer to a large bowl. Whisk in the tomato reduction, garlic, vinegar, thyme and the remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Add the radicchio and the reserved sun-dried tomatoes to the dressing and toss well. Add the semolina croutons and the remaining 2 tablespoons of pecorino, toss again and serve.
