This Week at The Cumming Harvest


Happy Labor Day Weekend

In case you missed it last week, here is the recipe again.

Summer Veggie Stew
This recipe was so easy and pretty healthy too. I adapted a allrecipes.com recipe called “Eggplant Supper Soup”.

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon EVOO
1 medium onion, chopped
1 pound ground beef
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 pound eggplant, diced
3/4 cup okra cut into 1/2" pieces
3/4 cup sliced celery
2 (14.5 ounce) cans Italian crushed tomatoes
28 oz chicken broth
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook the onion, beef, and garlic until beef is evenly brown. Drain grease, and mix in eggplant, celery, okra and tomatoes. Pour in broth. Mix in brown sugar, and season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir until heated through.

Add in any optional starch and continue cooking on low or until done. Some have enjoyed pasta, lentils, brown rice, etc. I added a package of “Seeds of Change” brown rice and quinoa which was so easy and fast! Costco sells a box of 6.

Another option: Vermouth
We bought a huge bottle a couple of months ago because I had an idea I wanted to try a dry martini. Unfortunately, I could never make it taste good or more possibly I just don’t like dry martini’s. I believe at the time I was binge watching Mad Men and I remember thinking, they drink martini’s like apple juice, it must be really good, reminding me that nothing is like I see on TV.

Anyway, back to the reason I’m talking about Vermouth…I had heard you could cook with it so luckily when I saw that someone added vermouth into this recipe, I finally could try it. I added 1 tablespoon but probably could’ve used more as I couldn’t taste anything and if I’m going to use wine or something in a recipe I think I’d like to taste a flavor of wine ;)
