Project Farmer’s Market – Week 2

Here’s what we had to work with:

cucumber, walla walla onions, white onions, eggplant, bell peppers, nectarines, French Country loaf, brioche buns, basil, salad greens, carrots.

Tartines with tomato salad – tomatoes, basil, French Country loaf

Monday and Tuesday I was at a work retreat so no cooking.

Baked fish with romesco sauce – red bell peppers
Oh how I heart romesco sauce!  It’s a great peppery all purpose sauce for things that are bland like chicken or fish.  It’s super easy – 2 roasted red bell peppers with the skins pulled off, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 slice of any kind of white bread soaking in about 1/4 cup of sherry vinegar, a pinch of salt, and pinch of red pepper flakes, 1 scallion, finely chopped, 1/4 cup olive oil.  Whir everything in a blender until smooth.
Salad with croutons – salad greens
Garlic bread – French country loaf, basil

Tortilla soup – white onions, bell peppers, carrots

Tomato salad – tomatoes, basil, walla walla onions

Vietnamese Crab salad in phyllo cups – carrots, onions, cucumber
Soo easy.  You can buy the little premade phyllo cups (although I made mine fairly easily).
1/2 cup of nuoc cham
1 cup shredded carrot
1 cup shredded cucumber
2 tablespoons green onions
1/2 pound of lump crabmeat
A little mint would be nice but I didn’t have any.  Throw everything in a bowl and mix until combined.
