WHOA somehow i failed to publish this recipe in august? how HOW? this was insanely good, i remember it like it was yesterday…

HERE’S A BLAST FROM THE PAST

A FEAST! i apparently only know one way to cook sea asparagus but hey, if it ain’t broke…

I was at the market and this was this last batch of sea asparagus for the season so i had to snatch it up.

SEA ASPARAGUS

  • 1/2 red onion, sliced thin
  • sea asparagus, soaked in 2 changes of cold water, woody bits removed
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

blanch the sea asparagus! saute onion until soft, add sea asparagus, lemon and garlic for abut 5 minutes until nicely tender.

THE REST

  • wild rice cooked in broth! simple.
  • a dozen new potatoes, boiled (skins on!)
  • 2 big handfuls chopped kale, steamed
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tsp dijon
  • 1/4 c. nutritional yeast
  • 1/3 c. almond milk
  • black pepper

mash potatoes with garlic and dijon. add yeast and almond milk, and whip with a fork, then mix in kale.

    • it’s a delicious extremely salty succulent that grows on the beach. i discovered it by accident once and now i’m hooked!
      it’s also known as samphire, sea beans and pickleweed.

      here (in vancouver) you can’t really get it past late july/early august. it’s unfortunately a bit tricky to come by, but if you live in a coastal area, i would recommend going to your farmers market and having a look (or asking around)!
