So... We have a garden! It is so cool growing your own veges and then actually being able to EAT them! We were a little late planting last year and because this summer has been slightly drier than last year's, things have been a bit slower to grow. But things have finally started to sprout and it is great. The only problem is that everything is all ready at the same time. So instead of getting a broccoli a week, we get three in one week.
Today we reaped this harvest...
|Broccoli, broad beans and regular beans, potatoes, cherry tomatoes and a rock melon... YUM!|
1 dessertspoon of oil - I use olive but you could use anything
1 onion, finely chopped
450g broccoli - this is about 2 small broccoli or 1.5 large ones, finely chopped
285g potatoes peeled and diced
1100mL chicken or vege stock (if your vegetarian use vege stock)
1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste - I also throw in a few other seasonings, whatever is in the cupboard at the time.
1. sweat the onion over gently heat in oil until soft
2. Add all the other ingredients and simmer gently until soft:
|Everything simmering and softening in the pan.|
4. Check seasoning, add anything if need be
5. Serve and garnish with chopped parsley, croutons or parmesan (what I used), or whatever you like.
It makes enough for 4 servings - unless you love it so much you want to eat it all!
|The final product garnished with some parmesan - it tastes soooo much better than it looks, trust me!|
Do you have a vege garden, or have you ever tried growing fruit or veges before?
