Scones and muffins from the Union Square Greenmarket
I started working with my Field Work Term advisor today to cook some dishes for one of her clients. I went to the Greenmarket to purchase lettuce (chosen for the quality and color combinations) for a salad she was going to make. I then bought fruit for a home made granola and a tart pan for a vegetable tart, which was delicious—I had some for lunch :).
All of the food prepared today smelled and tasted amazing. My advisor, Amy, put together a lunch plate for me that included quinoa, a bean stew- yum, some greens from the market, and some of the tofu ricotta tart, which contained leeks, spinach, and mushrooms. I also had some black rice breakfast pudding, which contained coconut milk. Mmmnn.
The photo of the muffins and scones (above) is from Body & Soul, a vegan bakery in NYC that sells to markets every day. I had an apple-cinnamon muffin, which was the perfect way to start this exciting and delicious day.
