Heya folks! My CSA has started, and for the first time I am bringing you a locally grown and super easy recipe I created myself. It has become a favorite of my friends, and can be very flexible. It is a standard of the summer - and depending on the time of the season, more veggies can be added or substituted.
The recipe calls for some canned veggies. Fire roasted tomatoes are amazing additions to dishes, or as a substitute when a recipe calls for canned tomatoes. However, once tomato season gets rolling, it is hard not to make use of the fresh.
The peas can also be subbed with frozen - though I find frozen beans slightly gritty. If you have the time, dried beans are an excellent alternative and a good option if you are wanting to control the sodium level. Follow the directions on the bag and have them cooked before hand (slow cookers are great for this).
Also as bell peppers and okra roll out later in the season, they can both be easily incorporated.
I always serve this over wild rice. I prefer a rice with a bit more bite than standard brown or white rice. If you are vegan, whole grains are always preferred because of it's increased protein levels.
I have given you the approximates on the seasonings, but depending on whether you use fresh, frozen, or canned, adjustments may need to be made.
Check out the recipe after the jump, and let me know any changes you made or if you have any questions. Send me a picture of your results and I'll post it! Enjoy.
