Surprise!

I was away from home last week, working on the other side of the country.  When I returned, a visit to my farmers market was very near the top of my “To Do” list.  Once there, I found the summer produce season at its peak, and amaranth, corn, lemon cucumbers, sweet onions, green garlic, chilis of every variety, baby eggplant, carrots, zucchini, okra, edamame, sugar snap peas, English shell peas, cranberry beans, watermelon, cantaloupe, peaches, cherries, blueberries, and countless varieties of tomatoes, all found their way into my cart.

I still have no idea what I will do with most of it, but I can hardly wait to find out.  I love a surprise!

Mezze Platter

When July arrives on the east coast, it brings with it such a variety of farmers market produce that I have trouble choosing . . . so I don’t.  I try to buy a little of everything and figure out what to do with it when I get home.  For this mezze platter, I quickly steamed the edamame while just as quickly sautéing the fantasy eggplant and blistering the shishito peppers, then I added them all to a platter of cherry tomatoes and homemade tahini dressing.  In less than 15 minutes, we had a tasty summer feast that proved that often the best thing to do to beautiful, fresh produce is almost nothing at all.
