The Hollywood Farmers Market Experience...the Beginning

So while our mini, mischievous Michelle has been galavanting all over NYC and the Caribbean in search of the next gastronomic revelation, I have followed through with my own personal goal of taking an additional direction with the LA-based posts by adding more home-made dishes.

And thus, today, we visited the Hollywood Farmers Market!

With a mere one hour on the meter and a budget of $10, this novice to healthy-hippie-organic-and-dreads-and-tea-and-chakras lifestyle walked dazed and confused by the stalls, fastidiously observing the veterans with their canvas bags and they navigated this new world of edible vegetation.

So by the end, I left with a bag of the prettiest bushels I semi-recognized: kale, mint, and chard.

When I arrived home, it was lunch time! Upon examination of these three heads of...healthy greens?...I decided the only thing that at this point of life I could make was a soup!

So I suppose the recipe would be to boil water, and chop up the above pictured, add some pepper, and veryveryvery minimal salt. :)

The soup was actually quite hearty, because the kale offers a good crunch! Accompany it with an apple or a nice pita, and you're good to go! :)

And it's pretty awesome in the looks department...*gastronimcally sexy wink*

  1. I don't know WHAT kale and chard are, but that looks delicious! Note to Steph: canvas bags and yoga pants are now must-haves for you in this organic-type lifestyle that you're creating. No more crazy prints for you!!!
