I was so excited for the first pick up that I had a hard time focusing at work.
Here' what I got in the first pick up:
- Baby Lettuce Greens
- Swiss Chard
- Red Leaf Lettuce
- Shitake Mushrooms
- Sweet Pea Shoots
- A Big Sweet Potato
The greens were easy, but I needed to use the mushrooms so I rough diced the with chives, and mixed them with garlic, Panko bread crumbs, and olive oil. I took the mixture and placed it between two thin layers of tofu and cooked in the Foreman Grill.
After the tofu cooked, I sliced it and placed it on top of a bed of baby greens and sweet pea shoots. And dressed with Annie's Goddess Dressing.
I have never eaten sweet pea shoots, they were about 5 inches long, tender sweet, and absolutely fantastic!!!!!!!!!!! I think that these would be easy to grow in planter, think I will try!
This is my second salad, not as pretty. I chopped shitakes and chives and placed on top. I also added peanuts!!!
Since we had light salads for dinner, Nikki made some chocolate chip cookies!!! Yea for Nikki!!!!!!!
