Plant, Grow, Eat - Day 19


Another week ends of eating from the garden!
Some of the veggies are coming to an end . . .  like the green beans and even the cucumbers . . .
But lettuce round II if just starting!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

On the menu:
Seared Scallops over red & white quinoa
Fresh green beans with tomatoes and lemon

These scallops were simply seared in a bit olive oil with a tad of salt, pepper and paprika.
(2-3 min each side)
A squeeze of lemon over top of scallops and quinoa when serving completes them nicely.

For the green beans:
Steam about 4 large handfuls of fresh green beans just till done
After steaming, drain liquid and set beans aside. In same pan cook 1 small chopped leek in a drizzle of olive oil and 1T of butter. Add beans back in and heat until hot again.
Serve topped with halved cherry tomatoes (seeds removed) and a squeeze of fresh lemon!
These are really wonderful!!!
