Spring has officially sprung at the Farmer’s Markets! Grab your bags and head out to explore what’s new – a freshly baked baguette, some cheese and fresh pea shoots join for a little Spring market jewel.
It’s fun just strolling the market, picking up a great seasonal find, like fresh pea shoots, then creating a simple way to feature ‘the find’. Pea shoots are so tender and sweet, with the flavor of freshly shelled peas. They are great in salads and in a stir-fry.
This tartine begins with local items from the market, like an incredible freshly baked baguette from Bread Lounge, a generous layer of Drake Family Farms “Glacier” goat cheese, then a sprinkle of a walnut-mint ‘gremolata’ (walnuts and fresh mint chopped together + salt and pepper) a drizzle of walnut oil and finally topped with sweet, tender pea shoots.
A Spring Market Tartine makes a light lunch, snack or appetizer – enjoy Spring’s little gems at the Farmer’s Markets.
