Due to deadlines, training at work, house renovations, and a lovely bbq at my friend Karen’s, I’m going to squeak by this week on my goal to try something new. Instead of a new activity, I’m trying a new food. So this week’s post in the-glorified-scrapbook-that-is-my-blog will be short and bitter.
Wait – bitter?
Yes, because I picked up at the farmer’s market a leafy green called Tatsoi, which happens to look a lot like spinach, but tastes more mustard-y and somewhat bitter. When I tasted it at the farmer’s market – despite warnings from the vendor – I thought it wasn’t bad. But once at home – I needed a whole lot of lettuce in my salad to balance the taste.
And yet, once cooked (braised in butter, olive oil, and sea salt), it was a wonderful compliment to potatoes and deviled eggs.
There’s no more to say other than I’m not sure how often I’ll buy it, as it was rather expensive, but at least now I know what ‘tatsoi’ is.
Thanks for tuning into this week’s ‘adventure.’ 🙂
