By placing the green onion leftover with roots on water, you will be able to regrow new ones in just a few days… Before I share this week post which has no recipe I just want to let you know that I will be of off for a couple of weeks, and will not be able to make my weekly visit to your blog, but will definitely catch up once I am back…in the meantime I will leave you with this simple way to regrow green onion or scallion. Don’t you like the idea of having fresh cut of green onion every time you need it? Well, it is very simple…just cut about an inch from the bulbs leaving the roots. [...]

Lemon Cucumber Salad and Summer 2015 Harvest

2018-03-02T16:29:17+00:00 Edible Garden, Side Dish|

Have you ever seen or tasted lemon cucumber? This is sure my first time ever…we picked a small plant when we decided to put a small vegetable garden on the rooftop. Since we have never tasted or seen lemon cucumber, we decided to give this plant a try…so after a few weeks we harvested our first crop and made salad with it…so interesting! The lemon cucumber as the name says it…resembles lemon due to the round shape and yellow color. Lemon cucumbers are sweeter than the regular cucumbers. The skin is a bit hard, therefore it is better peeled. No recipe…I simply tossed the peeled cut up lemon cucumbers with tomatoes, fresh chopped cilantro, fresh squeezed lemon juice, extra virgin [...]

Sprouting Seeds

2018-03-03T11:41:28+00:00 Edible Garden, Vegetarian|

This is an edible garden that can be accomplished by only a jar and water.  It is so much fun watching the seeds turn into sprouts and the sprouts finally on your plate. First of all I want to apologize if I did not visit you this week…I have been very busy at work and I will try to come see as soon as things gets calmer. This spring I have committed to do many new things and one of them is sprout seeds…I already sprouted chia seeds, which requires much more work as the seeds need to be in a terracotta dish. The alfalfa seed, broccoli, mustard, radish and many other are much easier to handle…it is a lot of [...]

First of all I want to apologize if I did not visit you this week…I have been very busy at work and I will try to come see as soon as things gets calmer. This spring I have committed to do many new things and one of them is sprout seeds…I already sprouted chia seeds, which requires much more work as the seeds need to be in a terracotta dish. The alfalfa seed, broccoli, mustard, radish and many other are much easier to handle…it is a lot of fun to watch the seeds turn into microgreens… There is really no recipe for it…and the whole procedure is very simple, you just need patience as can take from 6 to 10 days [...]

This is another fun thing to do...sprouting chia seeds.  This is a bit more tricky than the alfafa sprouts,  but well worth the effort, especially when you add this microgreens on your plate. Oh! Before I forget…I hope all the mom’s out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day! Lately I have been sprouting seeds for salad and sandwiches…all kind of seeds such as alfalfa, broccoli, cloves, radish…and chia seeds are one of them…I will be sharing my other sprouting experience with you in the near future… Now let me tell you what I did to sprout chia seeds… For the longest time I wanted to sprout chia seeds…after a thoroughly search on the internet I decided to go ahead and [...]

Five Minutes Flatbread with Green Onion

2018-03-12T16:31:08+00:00 Bread, Edible Garden|

This is a basic recipe for no-knead flatbread. It is very versatile as you can fill the dough with cheese, roll it will green onion, or just plain. This recipe is based on the book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François, which I got a while ago and have been using its recipes here and there. I made bread, rolls and even flatbreads…the basic recipe is very simple and easy to follow. Of course being “me” I am never content in just following recipes, I always have to come up with something new…so I decided to make flatbreads with the dough…the variation are limitless, with garlic and parsley, ground pepper and parmesan, ham [...]
