Yes, my name really is spelled that way.


multi-tasking veggies (radishes: day 1).

I love veggies that have more than one purpose because it helps keep things interesting during the work week!  I recently bought a bunch of radishes at the farmer's market for only $1 and decided to use not only the radishes themselves but also the radish greens.  The result was three dishes that made my lunches anything but boring!  
israeli couscous with summer vegetables.
 1 cup cooked israeli couscous
1/4 onion, chopped
handful zucchini, cut into small bite sized pieces (mine were attached to my squash blossoms!)
1 bunch radish greens, thoroughly washed and chopped
1/2 shallot, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
handful sundried tomatoes
lemon vinaigrette (recipe below)
salt and pepper to taste
 In a large skillet, heat olive oil over low heat and add garlic.  Cook about 10 seconds.  Add onion and cook for about 5 minutes.  Add zucchini and cook about 2 minutes.  Add radish greens and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Cook down until greens are wilted.  Remove from heat and toss with couscous.  Stir in lemon vinaigrette and sundried tomatoes.
