Yesterday, I went to the Wednesday Santa Monica farmer's market to pick up vegetables for the week. I'm cooking dinner for one for the next week, so I decided to stock up on vegetables and go green while everyone else is away. The market was packed despite the the dreary day. For the most part, not much change in the seasonal fruits and vegetables over the last couple of weeks, although cherries are pretty much gone, there are more and more heirloom tomatoes, and I saw my first pepper. I bought a ton of salad greens, a big bag of arugula and a big bag of Italian mix (wild arugula, mizuna and radicchio), some heirloom cherry tomatoes, leeks, green onions and an avocado.
recipe I always use, using 1 giant zucchini, 2 large leeks, 1 tiny onion, 2 cloves of garlic, and chicken stock.
