The garden is getting ready like the way we want it, rid of the square-gardening method. Time to make a new plan, I want a little herb-tower in the garden. I want to learn more from the garden and what is happening in the garden. Yes I am more into permacultuur now (ok I was already ‘the idea’s are great’ but now I can go and experiment in my own garden), reading about it. It is also a preparation for the real works, when the gardens on the melkweg (here in Amsterdam North what I told you about. A big project 4, soccer fields are free, and some buildings, there is going to be a beer brewery, a kindergarten totally eco-friendly, the gardens to grow your own vegetables. Anyway in short a project where you can show people how the food is growing, how to use, the whole process and also how good you can be with the environment ) are coming.
On the 15th of February we definitely know if what we want to make also can realise. So make a pray for us. I have a good feeling. And of course when the garden here is making progress I put it on the blog for more ideas and when the big project is starting……really can’t wait!
Anyway here I have a recipe for a nice side dish salad with arame. You can use this recipe also for a complete meal with for example basmati rice, but you have to 4 double the recipe (2 persons)
Ingredients seaweed salad( for 2 persons)
10 gram arame (seaweed) soaked in water for 10-15 minutes after washing it 3 times
1 clove garlic minced
1 slices of fresh ginger 1 cm thick minced
some sesame seeds as garnish (1 tablespoon)
1 tablespoon of tamari
100 gram fresh spinach leaves
5 mushrooms cut in slices and then in rectangles
some sesame oil
a wok or frying pan
Wash all the vegetables, clean the mushrooms and get al the stuff ready to make cooking easy.
The arame you have to wash 2-3 times and then soak in hot water (not cooking) for 15 minutes.
Get the frying pan, put in some oil and the arame , garlic, mushrooms and ginger.heat the oil slowly. Bake the ingredients for 1 minute or so and then poor in the other ingredients and bake till the spinach is shrink a little (let the green colour be still fresh and not too dark, but this is your choice)
Put of the gas and put on top the sesame seeds as a garnish. Ready for eating!
