What a wonderful meal! I just prepared the most tasty meal from the veggie patch, with over 85% of the food on our plate originating from it.
First I made a Zucchini slice and I tried the recipe I found on Julie’s blog "Towards Sustainability". If you have a spare zucchini or two, give it a go because it was just so yummy and I highly recommend it. Thanks for sharing Julie.
I have not been a big fan of the zucchini, but now I am a convert! Now I know what to do with the other bizzilion zucchini’s that are growing in the patch!
I used the following home grown ingredients. Zucchini, capsicum, onions, eggs, which is about 80% of the listed ingredients. Very nice. I served it with a freshly picked garden salad that had about 5 different lettuces and mizuna. I also added a few baby rainbow chard leaves and some baby nasturtium leaves to give it a bit of kick. I tossed through some Tommy toe cherry tomatoes from the garden, and some cheddar cheese and raw mushrooms that we bought. Everyone loved it, and there are two slices for tomorrows lunch.
I really love growing and cooking our own food. It makes all the hard, but enjoyable work worthwhile.
