Farm Fresh Recipes — eggplant
The days and nights are beginning to cool, and with them our bodies start craving warm and filling meals. Lasagna to the rescue! Sun-drenched tomato sauce, smooth roasted zucchini and eggplant, creamy cheese, all held together by noodles - lasagna is the ultimate comfort food!
Vegan bacon? What?! It's true! We love regular bacon (Farmer Jo is of the opinion that the addition of bacon makes everything better), but this eggplant bacon is a nice, light version that is just as versatile as the traditional version. Make it the "B" in a class BLT sandwich, have it on the side of your scrambed egg breakfast, or crumble some on top of any dish that could use a little smoky goodness.
Have you been cutting the leafy parts off of your celery and throwing it in the compost? Stop! Celery leaves are totally edible and belong in your salad bowl or soup pot, not the compost bin. This salad puts celery leaves right in the spotlight, where they belong. Don't have enough celery leaves? Just use finely chopped celery, or add other leafy greens to the mix.
