Yes, summer is finally upon us. We do have the (dreaded?) June Gloom here in SoCal, but the days are warming up and the produce is flowing in!
I was feeling a little on the thrifty side this weekend, what with all of the extracurricular fun I had, so I went light on the fare. The morels were fabulous... but what I want to talk about here is the Wild Kale in the strainer. I had never seen this Kale before, when I was at the stall at the farmers market, I asked the lady what it was... she told me "wild kale, try some, especially the stem"! Really? So I did, and it was wonderful. Slightly spicy, a little peppery and full of juice! I picked up some peppers and spring onions and the veg stir fry was on!
With a little curry scented rice and garlic, this veggie delight was truly what the household needed. The wife and I both went back for seconds, and I even made a second batch! Cheers!
