Veggie Garden 7/4/14

Veggies are growing really well. We have so much lettuce we are giving it away. Tomatoes are getting bigger and bigger. I’m so happy the cucumbers are also growing. We didnt get any cumcumbers last year due to too much rain and flooding. And we have string beans! Mom knows I love picking string beans and especially left them for me to harvest them this morning.

My Aunt’s version of Bun Rieu Cua, Vietnamese Crab Noodle Soup. 
Shrimp paste, crab paste, dried shrimp, and pork flavors this wonderful noodle soup dish.  It is loaded with tomatos and shrimpy meatballs, bean sprouts, and usually some tofu.  Squeeze a dash of lime juice and sprinkle on some fried garlic for an extra kick.

Tomato Pesto Soup

I have a lot of tomatoes at home from the garden and decided to make Tomato Pesto Soup for dinner using Serena’s recipe from her blog Seriously Soupy.  I didn’t have some of the ingredients for the pesto so I made my own version using scallions instead of basil. I also substituted in chicken stock instead of water and added a bay leaf. The outcome was really, really good. Visit Seriously Soupy for the original recipe.

Scallion Pesto: Take a bunch of scallions and chop it up. Add 2 cloves of garlic, grated parmesan cheese, dash of salt and black pepper, and olive oil and put into the food processor to blend.
