I don't always eat breakfast cereal but when I do I top it with homemade. Today's toppings are homegrown strawberries, homegrown popcorn microgreens and fresh local honey.
Popcorn microgreens contain vitamins A, B, C, E, iron, calcium, potassium, phosphorus and magnesium. The crispy white shoot contains all the sugars the plant would put into producing an ear of popcorn. It is intense on it's own but combines nicely with other ingredients and makes a beautiful intriguing garnish if you want to impress your friends. Popcorn shoots are part of the Impressionist Mix. Visit me at the Salmon Creek Farmers Market for a sample.
Danielle is my honey supplier. Her bees are busy in Woodland Washington. She harvests a new batch every week, so you know it is super fresh. I just love her wildflower honey. She has several varieties to choose from including blackberry and holly.
Danielle is also a vendor at the Salmon Creek Farmers Market so stop in tomorrow and get your fresh, local honey and microgreens!

Summer. The best time of the year. Flowers are blooming, cold drinks are on tap and there is never a shortage of outdoor fun to be had. But if your spring and summer are like mine, no matter how hard you try there are days you just can't do it all. Today is one of those days.
Meet the healthy frozen pizza! This "recipe" is unbelievable flexible. Start by placing your favorite frozen pizza on a pizza stone. We usually start with a simple cheese version since frozen pizza toppings are often kinda lame. Then we dress it up with more of whatever cheese we have on hand, pepperoncini slices, sundried tomatoes, turkey pepperoni or whatever else needs to be used up (mushrooms, olives, scapes, onion...). Next, bake according to package directions. Remove from oven and let cool.
Slice it up then pour on the nutrition! Adding a generous dollop of Harvest of Peace Microgreens Brassica Mix gives just the right amount of crunch plus tons of nutrients from these delicious ingredients:

One thing I'm just going to say right up front, I am not a professional chef. I just like good food. I like fresh food. I like to share food with friends.
I don't cook with recipes, I use what I have on hand and make do. Sometimes I discover something new. Like this deliciousness. This was my second try at pesto. The first was kinda blah. As you will see, this recipe has some rather unique flavors for a more complex flavor profile.
Here are the ingredients and their proportions.
I have added some additional photos and serving ideas to Instagram. See them here
