Lunch Fresh From The Garden

Today’s lunch came directly from my garden to the kitchen, to the pan and then my tummy. It had been picked less than an hour when I was stuffing myself – with reverence of course!

Freshly picked and ready to slice.

All told there was zucchini, green beans, okra, eggplant, green tomato, new potatoes, and peppers. It all started off with the cucumbers though.

Sliced on a diagonal, topped with cream cheese then a dab of my favorite homemade pepper jam this was a great appetizer to start with!

I melted some coconut oil in a large skillet then prepped the veggies. The okra and green beans were left whole. But the potato, zucchini, eggplant and green tomato were sliced thick. I chunked the beautiful round orange pepper.

Each piece of vegetable was dipped in country fresh egg then a mixture of course ground organic cornmeal and whole wheat flour. I carefully laid each breaded piece in the hot oil and browned till crispy on the outside and barely tender on the inside. A mixture of mayo or Miracle Whip (I know…) and prepared horseradish is my¬†condiment of choice for fried vegetables.

Starting at the bottom and going clockwise; green tomato, zucchini, potato, the lone okra, eggplant, green beans and the peppers.

bon appetite!
