First harvest salad

| 1 Comment


Tonight we harvested the bulk of our first crop of baby lettuce, an eggplant from the nursery plant we bought yesterday and some of the tiny onions that needed to be thinned. It wasn't much bulk at all, but I turned them all into a delightful salad. Eating food from our own land (collection of pots) was exceptionally satisfying.

First Harvest Salad
serves 2

1 handful baby lettuce
1 tiny eggplant
10 minuscule green onions
1 tsp sesame seed
1 lime wedge
olive oil

Cut the eggplant into 1 cm cubes. Mince the onions. Wash and dry the lettuce.

Saute the eggplant in some olive oil. Add the sesame seeds & cook until toasted. Add the onion and squeeze in the lime wedge. Remove from heat. Dress the lettuce with a bit of oil, salt and a few drops of lime juice. Top with the eggplant.
