‘Tis the season of gratitude. Gratitude for things so much bigger than ourselves. Like the beauty that is giant red mustard greens flourishing in the cool air. Like the tart-sweet-crispiness that is a North Georgia apple. Like the satisfaction that is volunteering together to create something that no one of us could do alone.

Come spend this season with Augusta Locally Grown. There’s plenty of gratitude to go around.

Cheers!

Kim

Some of the happenings this week…

 

Green Gazpacho

This has been a busy summer for me, so once again I am posting early.  We have established in these posts before that 1.) I try to eat as seasonally as possible, 2.) I like cold soups in the summer, and 3.) I am mildly obsessed (maybe not so mildly) with Yotam Ottolenghi, so bearing those things in mind, I present this recipe.  Let me just shout out that this soup is great!!!  Don’t let the fact that it is green and cold scare you, this is a hearty summer dish that is full of flavor and just so good for you.  I made this ahead of time to enjoy for lunch throughout this hot week .  I did not add the ice cubes, because I knew I would not be eating it right away and to me, it only got better as the week progressed.  Just like bone warming hot winter soups, cold summer soups can be comfort food, especially if you like a little spice and add the green chile.

Spaghetti Squash Salad with Tomatoes and Pecorino

I have discussed in these posts before that I am not always a fan of substituting ingredients: i.e. If I am eating pasta bolognese, then I want real pasta, not a vegetable spiralized to look like pasta.  I want to appreciate my veggies for what they have to offer without making them a poor substitute for something I really want (rant over now.)  Spaghetti squash is one of those misunderstood veggies that deserves a place at the table to shine on its own merit.  This is a recipe I am excited to try and I hope you will be too.  The picture is one of the other variations of this recipe, but hey, its tomato season, so why not celebrate those as well.  This combo really screams summer to me and I hope if you have been burying your squash under pasta sauce, you will make this salad and give the squash its place in the sun.
