OneDo you see that? It’s Bacon and Pea Shoot Soup [drool]

It’s a special soup I made from ingredients from the Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market….FOR the Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market Blog. You can find the article here.

The story behind the recipe: I went to the market a week in advance to scope out the produce to create a fun recipe (I did this at the tail end of a morning run, equipped with a credit card shoved in my running pants butt-pocket). I saw lots of greens, root vegetables, and sausages, so I thought “veggie-heavy cassoulet, BOOM, Erica, you’ve done it again”. Once I was done browsing I stopped at Durham’s Tracklements and Smokery for some smoked salmon, and jogged over to Zingerman’s Deli to grab some bagels (paying with my sweaty butt-credit card, mind you). Nothing says “cool” like jogging a half mile home in head to toe running gear and holding a bag of smoked fish. It made for a delightful breakfast for many days to come.


However, when I made my way to the market the next week to assemble the dish, almost all the items I had seen the previous week were not there. Crestfallen. I was almost inconsolable until I saw the pea-shoots (which make a DELICIOUS, healthy, and expensive snack if you feel so inclined). After doing about 3 more awkward circles through the booths I came up with the recipe (which, again, you can find here)

    Sweaty butt credit card is incredibly dignified, you should feel proud. You’re coming up in the world.
