Where I lived before I moved to California, I was devoid from exciting new vegetables. In the big Chinese supermarket on my block I found two and made this Lemongrass flavored rice with edamame and pea shoots & grilled king oyster mushrooms.
About how I ended up my Sunday morning holding a screwgun in a dirty kitchen. A long story, but short recipe for home made Apple Juice with rhubarb.
As experienced as a cook I am, every now and then I suffer from a lack of cooking creativity. One of my rescues is this Pasta with spinach and any soft cheese.
It felt a bit like ‘cooking by color’, when I got inspired by red beets and onions laying closely together. They ended up even more united, in this Millet salad with beets, roasted red onion, feta cheese and serrano ham.
In Italy I drank a peculiar soft drink. Now I can make it myself: Sparkling basil soft drink!
At the Farmers Market I got seduced! By bright yellow beans. I gave them the starring role in a refreshing Yellow bean salad with feta.
