Sundried Tomatoes are Like Garden Candy
Celery in Eggs? Why? Why not? Celery is one of the most underrated vegetables out there. And organic celery has a much Earthier taste. Try adding it to more than tuna salad. Live on the Edge!!!
I love the vibrant flavors in sun dried tomatoes. When I can buy them in bulk I do because I like to cook with them in Sauces, pasta dishes, and vinaigrette's with Olive Oil and Garlic for bread and over calamari. Below the recipe and photos.. I posted some information about the health benefits I have read about regarding these vegetables. The war over the benefits of Eggs come and go.... so you make the call.
On to the food:
- Olive Oil:
- Minced sun dried tomatoes
- vidalia onion
- Smashed Garlic
- add in an Egg ( this can be done with Egg white). I let the egg cook for a bit before I mix it in.
Once egg is cooked through, serve and enjoy.
Going over several times you will eventually come to what is more like a Garlic Paste. This will melt into whatever you are blending it into. It's grate added to pasta, smeared on beef , pork or chicken, mixed in with a Shrimp sautee and especially great to make Garlic bread or garlic oil dip.
