farmers' market


Downstairs from my new apartment there's a farmers' market once a week. It's a very small one, which I would expect since it's downtown and across from a bus station, but it's nice that it's there. I love looking at fresh fruits and vegetables. I think that these are the prettiest onions ever.


Here are two meals I made from the fresh vegetables. The first was a salad with green leaf lettuce, tomatoes, radishes, and pumpkin seeds, topped with olive oil and black pepper.


Later that day, I turned leftover tomato pasta sauce into a pseudo-curry by adding toasted Madras curry powder and a heaping spoonful of sambal oelek. I used it to cook the eggplant and some corn, topped it off with fresh basil and served it over brown basmati rice.
