I didn’t make it to the market yesterday, but luckily I’m not veg-less today. My village has a fantastic farm shop that, while I don’t exactly frequent, I definitely make use of when in a pinch. Though I have to be careful about some origins (those oranges along the wall, for instance- I’m not sure they’re exactly local), the produce is fresh and plentiful and delicious.
I’m in a curry mood of late, and The Kitchn’s recent post on Indian food has only fueled the fire. The potatoes and cauliflower you see are for a first stab at Aloo Gobi, the flavourful Punjabi vegetarian dish. With the spinach, I might even try my hand at Saag Paneer, a yummy spinach-and-cheese combo. If I decide to make my own paneer, I’ll try to take you along for the ride.
The fennel and butternut squash are for a soup recipe sent to me by one of my best friends. Though I’ve never been a fan of fennel (yuck), she insists that this soup is delicious, so I’m willing to give it a go. Look out for the photos and recipe later this week.
