My Fresh Farm Breakfast — Vege Tartine

I am so amazingly fortunate to have my own community farm www.raleighcityfarm. Gracing my plate & my health this morning — food that is locally & sustainably grown; is pesticide & herbicide free & tended by passionate professional Farmer Josh Sattin.
My harvest is pictured here. A quick zip up to Raleigh City Farm’s COVID smart Farmstand thrills me. First I get to see the plots of gorgeous vegetables & herbs organized as a work of art. Then I easily order my produce, flowers, bird house, bird feeder, even micro greens with a sprouting young farmer John (pun intended) NEW this week.

The recipe — VEGE TARTINE

  • 1 slice rustic sourdough, toasted
  • 1/4 avocado or smashed great northern beans or refried beans
  • 3 T extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 t Greek herbs (or your favorite herb/spice blend or salt & pepper)
  • 1 pattypan (scallop) squash or other summer squash, sliced
  • 1 large green onion, white & a bit of green cut in long strips. Green tops: chopped & saved for garnish
  • 1 carrot (enough for 8 diagonal carrot slices or more)
  • 1 French radish sliced
  • 1 handful of Russian Kale torn
  • Fresh micro sprouts (garnish & health!)
  • 1 t balsamic vinegar
  • 1 T pickled onions or your favorite zing (capers, sauerkraut, olives, pickles, lemon peel, sriracha, salsa)
  • 1 t (or more) hemp seeds (so healthy)
  • Fresh coarsely ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400°F (convection speeds roasting time). Hand rub the veggies with 1 T (more if needed) olive oil & herbs. Place in specific vegetable type groups on roasting pan in case one cooks faster than another so they’re easy to take out. Bake about 10 minutes, checking after 5 (removing kale) until the veggies are done to your preference.

Meanwhile toast the bread & smash the avocado on it. Drizzle with oil. Layer the veggies on the toast. Drizzle with olive oil & balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with pickled onions, hemp hearts & black pepper.

Garnish with sprouts.

TRIPLE THE ROASTED VEGES — They’ll be delicious later!

See you next Wednesday at Raleigh City Farm 4-7. Check the site for each week’s harvest. https://raleighcityfarm.org/farmstand
