So it’s berry time around these parts. Every day (or twice a day!) I’m out picking raspberries and getting to spend time with the others who are also munching on the berries–mostly birds and bunnies, and an occasional deer. We’ve got a lot of raspberries at this point, and will for a week or two. I’ve got a huge bag in my freezer and have been eating more than I can handle. The birds have been pretty good so far. Either that or there are so many berries that I don’t really notice.
I did make a raspberry tart, and it was beautiful–vegan, using agar agar, and it melted. Or maybe oozed is the right word. I also made a flourless chocolate raspberry cake–pretty much a standard flourless cake, gobs of eggs, etc. and dunked some rasps on top. It was well enjoyed!
As for other berries, I harvested one blueberry this year. Yep, one. And (since this is our theme for this week) I DO have strawberry plants, but they’re not doing much. And I’m allergic, so aside from making tuxedoed strawberries once or twice a year, I don’t do much with them.
So head on to Celiac Family to see the strawberry inspired recipes that Heather and co have posted!
Masala chicken with broccoli (recipe from Spice and herb bible)
Quinoa with kale pesto, using some kale from my garden
Coconut bison curry with garlic roasted cauliflower
Rosemary roasted salmon…which we haven’t had in way too long. I love salmon!
I will most likely make a chocolate hazelnut torte. or cookies. both would be overkill!
in my garden:
tomatoes (got two so far, direct to mouth)
thyme, oregano, etc.
