March 16, 2016 -- For all of my friends that have been asking for Spring Recipes, join me for our Spring Recipe Exchange at the Evanston Indoor Farmer's Market Sponsored by Prairie Grass Cafe and Immanuel Lutheran Church

Start out Spring with a Few New Recipe Ideas and Share Some of Your Own

Meet Sarah Stegner at the Evanston Indoor Farmer's Market at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Evanston this Saturday, March 19 and bring a copy of your favorite Spring recipe. (Please make sure your recipe's ingredients are coming primarily from the farmer's market).

Sarah's friend Chris Djuric is going to share her delicious Rhubarb Pie recipe.

Our plan is to create a mini Spring Recipe book to share with you at the April 9 market. Evanston's own Rick Kinnebrew, will be writing the forward. We're very excited to share our recipes and yours. Please contribute!

Evanston Indoor Farmer's Market is located inside Immanuel Lutheran Church, 616 Lake Street,  Evanston, IL - 9am-1pm.

Hope to see your there,
Sarah Stegner

Here is a recipe to get you started:

Watercress Pesto

By Sarah Stegner & George Bumbaris

Ingredients:

1 cup tightly packed watercress
1/4 cup olive oil
½ clove garlic
3 Tablespoons toasted pecans
4 Tablespoons Grated "Pleasant Ridge Reserve" or other local sharp cheese

Pinch of salt

 

Method:

Blend Watercress, olive oil, garlic in a blender or food processor until smooth. Add pecans and continue to process until very finely chopped. Transfer to a bowl and add grated cheese and a pinch of salt.

Great to use as a marinade for meats, toss in pasta, spread on some crunchy bread, or use as a sauce for pizza.
