Garden Fresh 

Lately my life has been a little hectic, to say the least!

After some car dramas and extra work commitments, I had hardly spent any time at home-sweet-home. I was craving the creature comforts such as my own bed and my own tea mugs!

I arrived home this evening with a giant to-do list, and a small window of time before I needed to bundle myself off for a much-needed sleep.

Earlier on today I paid a visit to the lovely folk at Gold Coast Organic Meats. For $24 I was happily on my way with six Paleo beef rissoles, six Paleo beef sausages, and two gluten free crumbed chicken rissoles.

I cooked a beef rissole for dinner in some virgin coconut oil, and grabbed some fresh pink rosemary and parsley from my herb garden to sprinkle into the pan.

I also popped some Sun Drop tomatoes into the pan after the rissole was done, with some extra rosemary to brighten them up. These tomatoes were store bought, but I have a small plant happily growing that I started from a too-squishy tomato! I love germinating my own plants from food scraps – it’s cost effective and super rewarding 🙂

I plucked some fresh mixed lettuce leaves and Tuscan kale from my garden and dressed it with the warmed tomatoes and some Himalayan salt and black pepper.

My rosemary really made this dish as it was so sweet and flavourful! I originally bought my rosemary plant from Bunnings.

I love keeping food simple, clean and healthy. It doesn’t get more simple than this!

Let me know what edible plants you have grown from cuttings or food scraps in the comments below – I’d love to hear some new ideas.
