There are so many amazing farms here in Lane County! Summer has been amazing, although many crops are late this season! I am so excited for all that Fall crops will bring! Go visit a farm near you! Click here to find one: http://smallfarms.wsu.edu/farms/locate_search.asp
A few weeks ago my husband, my mom, my kid, and my niece took a trip to Detering Orchards in Harrisburg, Oregon. We picked green beans, zucchini, and peas.
They have an amazing selection of in season produce at amazing prices! That day I got about 5 pounds of green beans, two large bags of white, orange, and purple carrots, and nearly 10 pounds of zuchinni, and two giant heads of lettuce for $13! So with all fresh ingredients I made this delicious side dish of spicy carrots, peas, and zuchinni!
Spicy Carrot and Pea Mix:
1 cup of fresh peas
2 medium zuchinnis
4-5 large carrots (look for a variety of colors)
1-2 tbsp of spicy sweet chili sauce
1 tbsp EVOO
Salt and Pepper
Toss all the veggies together in the EVOO and saute until tender over medium-high heat. When veggies begin to soften, add the chilli sauce. And cook until desired firmness. Adjust the chili sauce to fit your heat prefrences. We like it hot! :)
