Organic Eggplant Dip with a Healthy Twist

Baba ganoush Salad with noodles with a twist

Frying up organic eggplant and blending it with organic garden fresh herbs: parsley, chives, and garlic chives, raw tahini, and ume vinegar makes a quick and easy, delicious, vegan dip.  Flavorful, farm to table, sweet carrots, local fermented pickles, and noodles create a gluten-free, beautiful, yummy meal. The noodles stand in for pita bread, a twist on the classic way to serve baba ganoush. And since black goes with everything, I chose Forbidden rice ramen. Plus, using alkalizing umeboshi vinegar and plenty of parsley balances  calcium draining eggplant for an eating your strong bones meal. Continue reading

Picking Organic Basil at the Brookfield Farm

Every Summer, I love to pick lots of fresh organic basil to make pesto, flavored oils, dressings, among other delicious farm to table vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free dishes for personal chef clients, private and group cooking classes and for myself, family and friends.

I just harvested 80 garlic bulbs from my organic garden. Imagining all the vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, delicious soups, pesto, sauces, dressings, chili, and more that I will cook up this year for personal chef clients and those that come for my organic farm to table classes and organic B&B: tomato sauce, greens in garlic tahini sauce, garlic bread, kale, basil and cilantro pesto,  garlic flavored oils, sweet putanesca sauce, olive tapenade, zesty parsley garlic dressing, chili, minestrone, and more.

Meals for celebrations, too. First, I will hang it in my shed to dry and cure for winter storage. Continue reading

Lots of veggies to come from my garden, but in the meantime, I am well fed by CSA. How about you? Continue reading
