egg salad.


Those sandwich rolls I baked? They are great with egg salad. My "egg lady" had many more eggs this week. Happy hens - they sure lay good eggs. And the fresh sprouts on top? YUM!

This egg salad is from a recipe in The Garden of Eating with the normal Denise tweaks.

egg salad

ingredients::
1 dozen hard boiled eggs, crumbly
2 tsp stone ground mustard
1/4 tsp turmeric or yellow curry powder
1/4 tsp ground chipotle
1 tsp ground sea salt
fresh ground black pepper to taste
1/2 tsp great quality apple cider vinegar
1/2 c good quality real mayonnaise* (natural or homemade)
Freshly cut chives, if available.

*you can substitute tahini instead of mayonnaise

Mix it all together. Tweak to your personal taste!

Your food all looks great. I've been wanting to make sprouted bread and various fermented beverages too. I'll look back to your blog when it's time to do so!

I'm in St. Cloud, MN. You're lucky to be in Madison. I love your city and farmer's market--used to have good friends living there.

Not sure where I first saw your site listed. Homeschooling blogs? Oh well, I'll check back.

I'm considering starting a food blog too. I just started blogging this year and it's so fun. I think my family who are not much into food are sick of my recipes, diatribes on eating local, etc.!

Just visiting your blog for the first time and noticed these sprouts. I've been on a huge sprout kick for a few months now. Eating living foods really makes a difference in how I feel. Inspired by 1000 Days at Sea, I'm getting ready to expand my sprouting experiments.
