Happy hump day! I went to my farmer’s market yesterday afternoon and hit the jackpot! Tons of amazing veggies and lots of watermelon, peaches, and berries. Planning it all out? Nope. Just going with the flow and making stuff up as I go along. Last night I made this … http://funfoodiefamily.com/2014/07/23/orzo-and-cheese-stuffed-tomato/
I also quick pickled okra, beans, tomatoes, and peppers. I am going to put up that recipe soon.
Tonight I decided to make a veggie stir fry and add in the rest of my leftover orzo. One pot vegetarian wonder! I added beans (purple and green (taste the same and the purple ones turn green when you cook them), peppers (sweet and spicy- 1/2 jalapeno with seeds ), and halved cherry tomatoes added to 3 tablespoons oil and 1 tablespoon of butter. I cooked them down for a few minutes with a touch of salt and pepper. Then I added a bit of hoisin sauce, teriyaki sauce, and stir fry sauce. Not a lot…I really just eye-balled it, adding about 1 tablespoon of each. Then at the end, I added in my orzo and stirred very well.
Such a gorgeous dish! The jalapeno added a subtle heat that just kept building as I ate each bite. You can just taste that these veggies came straight from the garden. Fresh and tender; each amazing veggie’s flavor came through.
