As long as there is a farmers’ market to photograph, I will be blogging farmers’ market photos. I hope that’s okay with all of you. I never get bored of looking at beautiful food, and it really doesn’t get more beautiful.
This past Friday, as usual, I hit up my normal Copley haunts, Siena Farms and Atlas Farms, in addition to some others for my weekend produce. Since my husband was working all weekend, I wanted to make a little special vegetarian something for myself, and that I did. There are lot’s of photos, but I promise there is a recipe at the end
But first, the market. Siena Farms had this beautiful fennel, perfect for soups and salads.
Beautiful yellow tomatoes
Some of my favorite greens
Garlic, one of those ingredients I can’t live without
An Epicurious.com cooking demo (that I missed) by Chef Benjamin Knack from Hell’s Kitchen
Strawberry, peach, and blackberry tarts that were to die for
Little heirloom tomatoes
And now a recipe for Zucchini Pancakes with Spiced Yogurt
1 large zucchini, grated
1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
pinch salt and pepper
The pancakes are simple. Mix all of the ingredients together. In a frying pan, add a tiny bit of olive oil just to thinly coat the pan. Using a spoon add several scoops of the zuucchini mix to the pan, and use the back of the spoon to pat them down into flatter cakes. Cook on medium heat for a few minutes, 3-4 depending the thickness of the cake. Then flip over to the other side. Keep flipping until each side has a little golden color.
Top the finished pancakes with spiced yogurt (and hot sauce, if you want to eat them like I did!)
1 cup Greek yogurt
1 TSP each curry powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper
3 TSP olive oil
The pancakes were so light and fluffy, and the cool spiced yogurt was a perfect accompaniment. I only wish the oil didn’t make it look so ugly. . . really it was delicious!
I enjoyed a nice quiet evening at home with dinner at a book on the deck. I missed my husband, but alone time can definitely be nice!
