From the cookbook, Cooking from the Farmers’ Market, once the beets are roasted, this soup, which serves 4, is quick and easy. If you still have a leek from last week, use it here instead of onion. A nice hunk of fresh bread would complete this meal. Enjoy! (more…)
Last week, someone asked what she can do with just one cucumber? Simple – make tzatziki! This delicious, creamy, Greek cucumber sauce keeps for about a week, and is great with grilled chicken, turkey or lamb. You can use Greek or plain yogurt (using plain yogurt will result in a slightly “runnier” sauce, but it holds the flavors and texture just as well so don’t panic if you don’t have it handy). It is a snap to make. Try it! (more…)
From the Washington Post, here’s a delicious summer squash and onion dish. The variety to use here is the pale yellow crookneck squash, but yellow zucchini (or a mix of green and yellow zucchini) will also be fine. Small to medium-size squash work best. Because they typically contain less water and fewer seeds, they will contribute more flavor and texture to the dish. Serves 4.
