Fall Scavenging Yields Abundance:)

Got odds and ends, but how do you put them together for a great, easy meal?

  1. I had a beet, a radish and a scallion left from my CSA share. Everything else had been eaten earlier in the week.

  2. But I also had a celeriac, a jar of olives, a can of chickpeas, some pistachios, a lemon and some oregano, parsley and nasturtium growing in my garden.

I grated the beet and part of the celeriac. I chopped up the radish, scallion, oregano, and parsley. I added in the other ingredients. Squeezed half the lemon on top, drizzled some EVOO and sea salt and voila!

How did it nourish me?

Beet –Fiber, manganese, folate antioxidant -carotenoids for vision, anti-inflammatory, and helps lower LDL cholesterol

Radish – Vitamin C, potassium, fiber and high-water content

Scallion – Fiber, vitamin C and K

Celeriac – Prebiotic fiber aids digestion, vitamin K, and calcium

Chickpeas – Manganese, folate, copper, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, zinc and fiber

Pistachio nuts - Supports cardiovascular system, and contains carotenoids – lutein for vision

Lemon juice – Vitamin C to help iron absorption and antioxidant

Oregano – Antioxidant, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral

Wow – that's a pretty good lunch considering it was all just thrown together.
