A Gathering of Vegetables (that is my title!)
A Gathering of Vegetables. The first recipe was not really a recipe. In the book Dr. Fuhrman just sort of mentions for a quick meal that "greens taste great with onions, garlic, mushrooms, and stewed tomatoes." So that is what I made! I sauteed the onions in a tsp of olive oil (plus about 2 T of water later so it would not dry out), added zucchini, mushrooms, garlic and cooked it a bit--then dumped in 2 big cans of San Marzano tomatoes and 2 giant bunches of chopped Swiss chard. It was FABULOUS! You do not even need any seasonings for this--the garlic and the flavors of the vegetables is enough. As far as the recipe title, this is how our conversation went:
Haze--What is this?
Jana--Um, not really sure--its not a real recipe, recipe.
Haze--"Is it a soup?"
Jana--"No it wasn't a real recipe--just a sort of suggestion."
Haze--"What is it then, it looks like soup?"
Jana--"I think it's just sort of a gathering of vegetables."
Haze--"Sure looks like soup to me."
He liked my title though--so now we call this non-recipe A Gathering of Vegetables. We give it an A+
Tasty Hummus: I love any kind of hummus--and this one is very tasty!! I added a bit more tahini and liquid than was required, and pureed the crap out of it in my VitaMix. Then I added some paprika on top. It is soooooooooo easy to make. And, you can spice it up however you like! Extra lemon, cayenne, herbs--it is really yummy any way you slice it. And, it was perfect as a side dish with the Gathering of Vegetables!! We gave it an A
The Strawberry Freeze was wonderful as usual. We have had this before. It is an A+ dessert. For Haze I made Chocolate "Ice Cream" (with the frozen bananas) and added some peppermint extract. He said it was his new favorite!
