springtime in the Limousin: the Lac de Vassiviere, Eric le chien, sunlight in the forest and blossoming trees in the garden


The spring is a beautiful time here in the Limousin, and a lovely time to visit. The trees are in bud and starting to blossom, they start to 'hum' as the bees gather to collect pollen from the flowers. I love to see the sunlight through the trees in the forest. We are enjoying lots of trips to Lac de Vassiviere too with our beloved Eric le chien. He loves to chase sticks and stones along the lakeshore and bark at the water. Looking forward to following the season over the coming weeks. Happy springtime.

Stir fried radish greens with sesame, ginger & garlic

cooking with radishes

Stir fried radish greens with sesame, ginger & garlic. A quick and easy seasonal spring vegetable dish using the often ignored radish greens. I look forward to trying out this recipe using my own home grown radishes when/if they emerge. I am a bit of a novice gardener, but enthusiastic and willing to learn. I love whiling away a few hours in the garden and pottering about, with nothing else to distract me apart from chasing after Eric le chien who makes an occasional bolt towards a passing tractor. Gardening for me is as much, if not more, about the actual process of getting outdoors and enjoying nature, than the finished product. Although I am beyond proud if I manage to actually grow something. 

I have recently been preparing and planting a few vegetables and herbs in the garden beds, so fingers crossed. I will keep you updated...any beginner gardening tips gladly received. 

 ingredients: 
2 bunches radish greens
1 tbsp ginger finely chopped/grated
2 garlic cloves thinly sliced
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1-2 tsp toasted sesame oil
1-2 tsp dark soy sauce
method:
Toast the sesame seeds in a dry frying pan. Leave to one side while you cook the greens. Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan, add the sliced garlic and ginger and stir fry for a minute or so until fragrant. Add the radish greens and cook until wilted - this will only take a minute or two. Season with sesame oil, soy sauce and sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds. Serve with plain boiled rice or as a vegetable side dish with grilled meat or fish.
