Eating Out: Grown Kittens Gone Lentil

At the end of last year (yes, I am behind), I went to dinner at Grown with a bunch of Brisbane vegan Instagrammers, at the invitation of my friend Tracee. Grown is a charming vegan cafe, that at the time had only recently started offering a dinner service. Six months on and their dinner service is still going strong, as well as their morning opening hours.

Tracee and I decided to share a few things, so that we could maximise out eating options. We started with a couple of small plates - The Olive, Sauerkraut, and Sesame Cheese, as well as the Baba Ganoush. Both came with slices of delicious house-made bread.

For larger plates, we shared the Roasted Cauliflower with Lentil & Cerveza Soup and Cripsy Buckwheat, and the Smokey Mash with Tempeh and Herb Sauce. I had no idea what cerveza was until I googled it, it means beer. They were both delicious, but the cauliflower was the stand out.

For dessert, I had the Baked Pink Lady Apple with Granola and Vanilla Ice Cream. Their housemade ice cream is coconut, but they have some good old So Good Vanilla as well, so they subbed that in for me to make sure I didn't have any coconut fat issues. This dessert may look and sound simple, but it was delicious. Like a perfect apple crumble.

School Garden Grows Stuff For 2016 "IndyWatch Feed Seq"

The school garden began the term with weeds a'plenty and all the impacts of the Summer heat and school break neglect.
But after a lot of recovery work the crops are a comin' on and the beds have been renovated. Because of the heat we've moved a lot of activities into the shade tunnel while outside has not been kind to many seedlings.
With the Autumn plantings due, the children have been growing our requirements from seed.
In production already are corn, luffas, zucchini, cucumbers, sunflowers, some herbs, lettuces, pumpkins, eggplant and tomatoes. 
With this rain all systems are go.

Garden Visit by BLF "IndyWatch Feed Seq"

I had the Brisbane Local Food grower folks over for garden visit on the weekend. Always a great experience to share the green thumb-ery with so many skilled kitchen gardeners.
It was a bit crowded on the paths between the plants so there were gaggles of folk hither and yon. Great day. Good company. 
Such generous people.

If you want to anchor your gardening skills BLF is the network to link up with.

The LISTING, description & celebration of some culinary & EXOTIC plants recently discovered while RESIDENT in Terra Australis Icognita during anno Domini 2015 [complete with a hall of fame section for past comestibles] according to A GARDENER who is a local yokel. "IndyWatch Feed Seq"


Methinks that as the end of the year approaches I owed it to my reading public to share a few tips and tricks as to the plant life I have partaken with much gardenary and culinary pleasure over the past  12 months of toil with sandy soil.

Ah. Toil with soil is so right. I have lived in, on , off and with the dirt as one would a third arm. Useful at times to scratch one's nose but demanding of effort and jealous for attention.
It is of the earth that I speak.
As the great barb of whatsit so well said, "The earth has music for those who listen." And this year past I have been heading its call.
I am Adam to its Eden. An apple to its Eve. A serpent to its grass.
It has consumed my urine and I its yield.
Amen to all that.

Herein I make up the list :

  • TOMATILLO: Much easier to grow than many varieties of its cousin, tomatoes, the husked and green tomatillo is both productive and undemanding. A great little performer in the sub tropics , the one drawback with this plant is that few know how to deploy it in the kitchen.I use it as a tomato substitute  in both hot and cold/raw dishes. You aren't gonna get the sweet bang! of a tom from a tomatillo, but you may find the reason why the ancient Maya and the Aztecs, considered the tomatillo more important than the tomato.
  • HUAZONTLE: This weedy plant is so easy to grow that i wonder why it hasn't occupied the backyard garden beds like a rash. I don't eat the leaves so much as the seed heads -- but only when green,when they form like flatte...
