Farmer's Market Week 1 and 2
Feb. 3, 2013 3:02 pm
Last week, I went to the farmer's market by my office and found that it wasn't there! So I ended up getting produce from Whole Foods and selected items that were labeled "locally grown". Surprisingly, it was cheaper than I expected!
My pick for last week was "savoy cabbage". It looked interesting and reminded me of napa cabbage, something I ate a lot of growing up. I read online that savoy cabbage is tougher so I ended up just stir frying it with green onions and garlic, added some salt
and then covered it at medium heat until it softened up. I probably cooked all the nutrition out of it as well but oh well! It ended up pretty tasty and even my husband liked it (he is not a cabbage fan).
This week, I went to the farmer's market in downtown El Segundo (also very close to my office). I bought some fresh bread, tangerines and fuji apples. My veggie picks for the week were green beans and zucchini. I found a recipe called
Emerald Green Risotto which has both these ingredients. I just came back from the grocery store to get the additional ingredients for this recipe. I'm heading out to a Superbowl
party tonight so I won't be cooking but I will try to make it later this week. I can't wait!
