Kale Brownies = very good. I had to add a little water to the blender so it would chop up the Kale so my brownies were more fudgy in the middle. I think I might try it in the food processor next time or just leave the brownies in the pan to cool – that probably would have cooked them just enough. But definitely cook a bit longer than recommended for a more traditional brownie texture!
We love grilled zucchini, zucchini noodles, and zucchini fries. Here is a new twist that I want to try this week since it has cooled down and I am actually willing to use my oven, although I think I could probably do these on the grill as well.
This is the first year we have grown artichokes and they are AMAZING. So young and so tender. I am used to the big globe artichoke you pick up at the store. I always thought they were a lot of work by the time you trimmed them and scooped out the furry inside, but these young artichokes are so tender and easy -just quickly trim the pointy ends with scissors. They are small enough that there is no furry inside. So I have just popped them into the steamer and cooked until tender. We love to dip them in lemon butter.
Here are a few recipes I want to try: Grilled Artichokes with Garlic Parmesan and Roasted Baby Artichokes!
The “original” veggie girl aka Abby made this cake a few weeks ago. (It warms my mama’s heart to envision her baking in her little apartment on Capital Hill. Abby just graduated this May from Cornish College of the Arts with a B.A. of Fine Arts in Dance.)
We are excited to try it! She recommended adding extra lemon juice to the frosting for a stronger lemon flavor.
Here is a great tutorial on how to make a small batch of homemade sauerkraut. It is really pretty simple. I am hoping to give it a try this week as well. She gives a lot of information on the whole fermentation process. The article is definitely worth the time reading all the way to the end.
