The tomato plants were an impulse buy at the grocery store, and a bit of an experiment. As in “let’s see if I can keep these alive long enough for them to even product anything.”
Then they went from this:
and finally became this:
This is me, who has a strong penchant for killing anything green. I have GROWN VEGETABLES, and then COOKED A MEAL WITH THEM. Understatement of the century, I was excited about this.
What I did:
- Boil water & cook up some whole-wheat linguine.
- Heat up oil for sauteeing. Minced garlic goes in first, stir around for a couple minutes, until just brown. Diced purple onion goes in next, sautee a few more minutes, until onions are translucent. Tomatoes go in last, along with all their juicyness. Don’t cook too long after this, or the tomatoes get too soft.
- Add the cooked pasta & get it all good & mixed together.
- Season: crazy salt, pepper, oregano.
This is just what I had on hand, I think it would be tasty with any other veggies you’d care to sautee up.
