AT-HOME ACTION: Instead of going to the fridge to see what’s for dinner, how about going out to the garden? Here’s a simple 5-ingredient dish that Chesnut Garden supplied last week for one Chesnut family (more on Chesnut’s gardenshare in a later post).
Middle Eastern Skillet (just as delicious without the meat for a vegetarian option)
- 2 cups squash (zucchini, summer squash) in 1-inch cubes
- 2 cups chopped tomatoes
- 1/2 cup chopped mint
- 1 cup rice
- 1 pound ground meat (sausage, lamb, pork, beef)
1. Sauté meat to brown in a large saucepan. 2. Add remaining ingredients with 1 to 2 cups water (enough to cover meat and veggies). 3. Bring to boil, lower to simmer and cover. Simmer about 45 minutes, until cooked through. Serves 4
