Fun, Healthy Veggies
How I Enjoyed My Harvest
By Linda Dansbury

Okra flower.
I had a lot of fun preparing and eating all of the delicious veggies this past week. Eggplant, zucchini, and more. Please send me how you are enjoying your harvest by emailing me at lindadansbury@comcast.net and please put Anchor Run in subject line so I can find your email.
Zucchini, scallions, herbs, Hershberger Farm bacon - made a quiche, using shredded zucchini as the crust. Just shred about 3 cups of zucchini and place in bowl. Add a beaten egg, salt and pepper and press the mixture evenly into a pie pan - deep dish works best. Bake the "crust" at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes. When it is set and browned around the edges, remove from oven. Reduce oven temp to 350, and proceed with your favorite quiche recipe. This makes a great dinner hot, and is good the next day at room temperature.
Cucumbers - it is a banner year for cucs. I have been enjoying them as a snack at lunchtime and while I am making dinner. Also made cucumber salads a few times. If you want to know what to do with all of the cucumbers and like pickles but are not into canning, try the Narrow Bridge Farm Refrigerator Pickles on this site. They are easy and delicious.
Eggplant, scallions, mint, basil, garlic, hot pepper, dandelion greens - made a nice sized batch of the Thai-style Grilled Eggplant salad (on this site). The first use was as a side dish with some grilled chicken. I then had plenty left to make it into a main course. Browned some ground pork from Hershberger Farm with garlic and ginger, then added chopped up dandelion greens, and finally added the eggplant salad. Topped with a bunch of chopped cilantro - it was delicious.
Tomatoes, garlic, scallions, ground cherries, hot peppers, basil, parsley - made the Ground Cherry Salsa - all I can say is Yum!
Zucchini, sweet pepper, scallions - made a batch of burgers called Garden Veggie Burgers - basically use a pound of whatever meat you want (it calls for ground turkey but works for whatever you want); add a cup of oats, 1/4 cup ketchup, 3/4 cup shredded zucchini, and chopped onion (I used scallions since we have them), 1/2 cup finely chopped sweet pepper - you can add a hot pepper if you want. Add salt and pepper to taste, mix well, form into burgers, grill and enjoy.
