Basil Pesto

Basil Pesto

    Normally Pesto is made with pine nuts.  I cannot discern the pine nut flavor so I decided not to bother and keep the cost down.  I find that Pesto is great as a sauce, dressing, and dip and marinate.  It is versatile and great way for me to use up my basil.  I […]

Beet & Pomegranates & Spinach Salad

Beet & Pomagranade salad

Beet, Spinach and Pomegranate Salad in Pesto Dressing Currently we have beet and soon to have pomegranates in our Utopian Harvest selection.  It just makes sense to combine the sweetness of beet and the tangy-ness of the pomegranates.  Malabar spinach (easily grown in hydroponic or container garden) has a bit more crunch and bite than […]

Lemon-Thyme Roasted Potatoes

Hint of Herby and Citrus Potatoes

This is one of the easiest dish I ever made besides boiling water.  Potatoes are one of those root/produce that reminds me of comfort food.  I love to make something with potatoes that requires very little supervision and I can add any flavors to oomph it up.  This last week, we had potatoes in our […]

Borscht with A Dollop of Sour Cream

Russian Beet & Cabbage Soup

Borscht is a Yiddish/Slavic soup that many Russian restaurants serve and believed to originate in the Ukraine.  It is flavorful and filling.  It is traditionally made with beet, potato and/or cabbage and sometimes tomatoes as a base.  Normally, the flavor comes from the beef bones/stock.  In this instance, I chose to modify the flavor by […]

Carrot Tops/Greens Pesto

Carrot Tops/Greens Pesto

This is a new twist on “basil” pesto.  Currently, I have a lot of carrots in my yard and I usually hate to throw away any type of “vegetable” like materials.  If it is edible, it’s going onto my plate somehow.  This idea of using the tops/greens of the carrots came from one of our […]
