Today was the annual Farm Day at Plato’s Harvest Organic Farm What is Farm day you ask? It is the day where Farmer Dave & his wife, Sasha organize a family fun day right there on the farm complete with food, music, hayrides and of course the stars of the show, Plato & Einstein…and all of their animal friends.
It was a potluck.. so I decided to make this Edammame & white bean salad Once I had made it, I felt like it wasn’t enough…. hindsight, I should have doubled it form the start. Unfortunately I did not have any more edamamme.. or cannelloni beans. So I improvised. I added a can of Chick peas, rinsed & drained and Black Beans, rinsed & drained. I also doubled the dressing since I was adding more legumes..
delicious!! The pic doesn’t do it justice.. I was running late ( as usual.. where DOES the time go?) and took a quick shot once it was packaged to go. I was disappointed that I had to add the extra beans, because I love the gentle flavors of the edamamme & cannelloni beans together with the rosemary & garlic oil, but when I went to grab the container at the end of the party, it was empty, so obviously, there weren’t any complaints.
*note to self* Tj’s trip this week…. you are out of edamamme….
Some pics from the day..
