Leppington has it this week. Leafy greens. Just 1 hour from Sydney going South-west and 60km away.
Coriander, English spinach and Baby buk choi – Grown by the Chong family.
The Leafy Greens this week are:
Coriander – also known as Cilantro
- Thai Pumpkin soup with Coriander Pesto
- Coriander Tabouli
- Carrot and coriander pilaf
- Coriander pesto
For excellent Braised Spinach – Put spinach in a fry pan with a little olive oil, butter, a grating of nutmeg and a tiny squeeze of lemon juice with a lid on to let it steam. This will taste great, and it goes with just about anything – pasta, fish or meat. If there is any excess moisture when the spinach is cooked, just tilt the pan so it runs to the other side and pour it away. Let the spinach sit for a minute and then serve.
