Summer Pasta

imageI am so excited… here comes the first recipe ! A very simple one that anyone can easily cook.

Overall time : 12 minutes

Price : low (1-2 $ per serving)

Ingredients :

  • Pasta
  • Cherry tomatoes.
  • Fresh basil leaves 
  • Tomato sauce
  • Goat cheese (only if you like it of course)

The idea is to get as many colors as possible in your plate : the more colorful - the more healthy ! Feel free to add any colorful thing : carrots - broccoli

Start by cooking the quantity of pasta you want (about 3-4 oz per person), then drain them and add the rest of the ingredients…Voilà ! It’s ready to eat !

Late Summer harvest

I was blessed to join the garden in the Halo Green garden just in time for the Late Summer harvest. On the menu are :

  • Sweet & juicy watermelon
  • Lettuce and cabbage
  • Tomatoes
  • Green beans and hum… bugs(!)

Food for thought & thought for food


Hello everybody,

I am an urban gardener in the beautiful city of Washington DC (and a student) and I would like to share with you my journey to eat as local and organic as possible for the cheapest price available.

My posts will be about the state of the urban garden I am part of, the seasonal recipes I invent out of it, a description of the food supply in my area and some other highlights on agricultural issues.

So “Bon Appétit” and enjoy !
