What Am I?



This was the first time I'd seen these edible greens for sale at the Farmers Market.

A tough one! Anne is the winner as she guessed a legume. These are fava greens! They are delicious raw! Sort of fava bean-like, but with the freshness of what tastes like a freshly picked runner bean. Succulent tasting.

I was going to saute them, but that seems a shame given their lovely taste raw. Now I'm think salad or in dumplings with tofu.

Stay tuned!

I've never seen either, but I'm guessing kaffir lime or curry leaves?

nope. not lime, curry or pea. All good guesses, tho'. I'll allow time for a few more guesses before giving the answer later today
