Yesterday I went to the amazing “grocery” store*(and I use the word grocery lightly because it is mostly produce and fresh baked goods along with plants) called Russos in Watertown, MA. IT was crazy packed but I saw lots of interesting fruits and veggies I have NEVER seen before!
I picked up some yellow sun-dried tomatoes and dried pineapple(sooooo sweet!)
this is a red apricot, two yellow kiwis and a quince fruit-which is supposed to have similar flavors to both an apple and pear.
I sampled the red apricot. And thought it would be a good idea to photograph/post it.
But it’s yellow on the inside! tasted like a tart apricot; so I am not sure if it was just unripe or if the red ones usually are like that.
and a 1/2 sour pickle rounded out my snacking.
I have been saving this tempeh to try that came in my Wildwood goody bag a while back. It is seaweed tempeh! mmm. I have to say though, tasted kind of like regular tempeh. It has a softer texture than the brand I normally buy but the flavor was nice and I am sure the seaweed gave me some more vitamins.
I made a stirfry using these. ****buyer beware- this no sauce just sugar snap peas also contain sugar and salt- not that big of a deal but always smart to check before buying to see if you really are getting JUST the veggie! especially if you have to watch your sugar/salt intake**
I marinated cut up tempeh with terriyaki sauce for about 1 hr and then sauteed some carrots for 5 minutes, added the tempeh and microwaved snap peas and threw in a handful of spinach at the end. Yum! By the way, this bowl is so tiny because while the tempeh was marinating I found lots of yummy eats in the pantry. Oops-appetite spoiled.
Have a great Monday!
