Tonight we’re going to have Gouda-tomato quesadillas and salad. I’m going to enjoy this lettuce because we’re getting to the end of lettuce season. Nice of it to hang on until we got some tomatoes, don’t you think?
Lucy has been singing the praises of lovage, so my inner utilitarian wants me to give some of it away. I know it’s good in anything chicken. Think of it as extra special celery for cooking. I’m thinking I might try it along with some fennel cooked with the oyster mushrooms in a cream sauce over pasta. There’s also this lentil recipe from oldfashionedliving.com.
Lentils With Lovage
- 1/2 small chopped sweet onion
- chopped butter
- 12 ounces whole green lentils
- 1/2 cup chopped lovage
- 1 sprig of fresh thyme
- orange zest/peel
- chicken stock or water
Sauté the chopped onions in the butter to soften but do not brown. Stir in the lentils. Add the chopped lovage, thyme, one strip on orange peel or a small amount of zest and stock. Cover and simmer until tender. Remove the lentil mixture with a slotted spoon and reduce the liquid in the pan, while adding a little more butter and salt and pepper to taste. Serve over the lentil mixture. Serves 4.
