Are you ready to be amazed? It’s not even summer yet (a week and two days till my summer officially starts) and I have already begun the “Summer of my Herbs the 2011 Edition”!!! I know. You are amazed. I will also keep you posted on my “Clean out the Garage the 2011 Edition” – but I’m not going to officially begin that until my summer officially begins
Do you grow chives? Maybe I should say, “Do you grow garlic chives?” Because if you grow garlic chives, you probably no longer grow regular chives. The garlic chives run rampant through my herb bed, totally obliterating any regular chives that might have attempted to grow. Garlic chives have a larger and flatter leaf, and have a combination garlic/chive flavor. I use them in place of regular chives…mainly because I have no choice… I have no more regular chives.
So, back to these herby vegetables. I found this recipe for Lemon Chive Roasted Vegetables at Cooking Light. I’m not going to reprint the recipe here, because with a simple click you can read it at the Cooking Light website. What I will tell you is to pay attention to the servings – yes it serves 12!! As I started chopping the potatoes I thought, “dang, this looks like a lot of potatoes!” It was. When I attempted to add the pound of baby carrots, I finally looked more carefully at the recipe. So, if you are serving lots of people (Marjie!) this is for you, for the rest of us, I would suggest possible cutting it in half!
