Company Feast

Company Feast

Tonight i cooked for company with the CSA veggies…so much fun!

Cucumber wild rice cold salad: First i added farmer’s market cucumber cut up into bite sized chunks along with salad onion cut into tiny pieces to cooked and cooled wild rice.  Then i mixed it with a plain yogurt, lemon olive oil mix.  Chilled and served cold.

Mashed Beets and Potato: Second side dish was a bunch of small butter potatoes from the farmer’s market, boiled and mashed with several csa golden and red beets roasted then mashed with the potatoes.  Added yogurt for a bit of texture and a dollop of butter for flavor. Very pretty and tasty with a very mild taste.

Red Pepper, red onion and fennel Frittata:  Finally i sauteed csa chopped red onions with csa chopped fennel and one red pepper from whole foods.   Then i wisked 7 amish free range eggs with 1/4 cup of water and a half a cup of yogurt and poured it over the sauteed veggies.   As herbs, I added ground peppercorns, a dash of sea salt, lots of dried csa oregano and home grown fresh cilantro to the eggs.  After the eggs set, i put the whole pan in the oven and roasted the top.  I cooled and served cool with greek style feta cheese sprinkled over the top.

Guests brought berry salad with strawberries, blueberries and blackberries, pino grigiot, and a veggie soup.  What a feast!
