At the request of residents Veggie City has been in the kitchen making up recipes with our fresh herbs.
Here are some of the recipes we have created. We hope you enjoy!

Veggie City Garlic Sauce
½ cup of extra virgin olive oil
Bunch of oregano
Bunch of chives
3-4 cloves of garlic
¼ cup white wine or rice wine vinegar

Blend all ingredients together and enjoy! This is extra yummy on pizza!

Veggie City Pesto Sauce
2 handfuls of fresh basil
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup almonds or walnuts (pine nuts are just too expensive these days!)
3-4 gloves garlic
¼ cup hard cheese like romano or parmesan
Salt and pepper to taste

Blend all ingredients together and enjoy! Great with spaghetti!

Watermelon Mint and Feta Cheese Salad
Mint is a hard herb to know what to do with, here is a summer salad recipe that is super delicious!

1/4 cup fresh mint sliced
Half of a small watermelon cut in cubes
1 cup feta cheese cubed
3 to 4 tablespoons balsamic reduction *
Combine first 3 ingredients and drizzle reduction on top of salad. ENJOY!
*Balsamic Reduction
Combine equal parts balsamic vinigar and sugar in a pot
Simmer on medium-low heat until reduced to a syrup
Refrigerate after it cools
Use this on salads , on steak with strawberries or as a dip for tomatoes

If you have any great recipes we would like you to share them with us :)
