Several vegetables have snuck up on us lately. This week, we are happy to inform you of some new arrivals: Fresh garbanzo beans! Haricot verts string beans! Squash blossoms!
This blog has a July 17, 2013 recipe for a quick and simple recipe for a fresh garbanzo bean ragu. You can serve it over cous cous, brown basmati rice, or pasta. Along with a green salad, it makes for a tasty summer meal.
Last week, we had an unexpected leek bounty at the market. We will have more leeks tomorrow at the market. Instead of a recipe, Eric wanted to talk about his favorite leek dish in Boulder. Dates nights are far and few for Eric and Jill. When they can slip away, one of their favorite places to go for a Boulder date night is Basta.
One of Eric’s favorite menu items there is their burrata starter with house-made pancetta and charred leeks. It includes leeks braised with pancetta, white wine, stock, and herbs and then charred. A small mound of burrata is placed on top of the dish.
