Market Haul

My eyes were clearly bigger than my stomach at the market today. I brought home tons of colorful veggies: multi-colored radishes, beets, and carrots, snap and sugar peas, tomatoes, artichokes, fennel, lettuce, cucumbers, broccoli, cabbage, onions, leeks, and the long awaited garlic scrapes. Plus I bought a dozen multi-colored eggs and white mulberries. YUM!

Rapini in gingered soy sauce

Approx. 90 Calories per serving. Recipe makes 2 (large) servings.

When I started cooking this, I intended to make grilled chicken to go along with it. I got a little lazy and decided that if I ate half the pan, I would be full and didn't need to bother with the chicken. This recipe makes enough for 2 large servings (as main course) or 4 small side dishes.

  • 16 oz rapini
  • 2 Tbs soy sauce (low sodium)
  • 4 Tbs grated ginger
  • 1 clove grated garlic
  • red pepper flakes, to taste
  • 1 cup water

  1. Wash rapini and cut stalks in half.
  2. Add water, soy sauce, grated ginger and garlic, and red pepper flakes to a skillet; bring to a boil.
  3. Add rapini and cook until tender but not mushy.
