Ten minutes to yum

One of my favorite things about gardening is walking through when I get home from work, to see what I can harvest, and then figure out what to cook from that. Today I had 2 dozen snow peas, some regular peas I had saved in the fridge, a couple big mustard greens (sliced into strips) and an onion. Sauteed them with a chicken chipotle sausage, then tossed it in the skillet with orzo pasta and boiled the whole thing in a broth I made from carrot greens (1 cup of orzo and 3 cups of broth. Boil until there's just a little liquid left). Add a little cream, seasoned it with dried orange zest and coriander.


  1. Sounds like you got a nice litter harvest. Congrats.

  2. The day after I wrote the above, I deadheaded all my basil and parsley, pulled 5 large radishes and got out Uncle Lajos' homegrown walnuts and made radish-basil pesto, served with fettucini and snow peas. Wow.
