Dinners from my garden

This is a great time of year for eating local food. I thought I would share some of the recent dinners we have made from vegetables that came from our garden. Although none of these dinners was entirely from our garden, all of the main ingedients were grown right here at 2 Green Acres.

First up is Baingan Bharta, an Indian Dish made primarily of eggplant, tomato and onion. The eggplant and tomato are from our garden. I look forward to making this dish every summer. Delish!
Next is a tomato onion tart that we took to a neighbor's house for a mid-week potluck. It was a huge hit! The tomato and basil are from our garden.

We also took a cucumber salad to the potluck. Unfortuantely, I don't have link to the recipe, but it is from the cookbook, Fresh Food Fast by Peter Berley

And finally (do you sense a tomato theme in this post?), we made gazpacho. No specific recipe here - we started with a recipe from Jaleo, a great restuarant in D.C. and then improvised from there. Terrific!

What are you making with the produce from your garden?
