garden peas and green onions

The garden officially is in productive mode! Well, sort of. The pea plants have started producing, and I took the few we could find along with some of our garden’s green onions to make a delicious little lunch today. I also learned a new trick. Rather than chopping the scallions as I usually do, I just bruised them up a little with the back of my knife. Like this:

It worked quite well. The long pieces of onion were really very pretty, and gave the dish an extra bite. I finished the dish with chopped basil and a dusting of black pepper. Success.

Take a look at these photos from our garden:
