Here are just a few updates. Above is a lovely appetizer — salmorejo with shrimp, tomato and avocado — from Moro East that I turned into a main course. Salmorejo is a summer gazpacho with ripe tomatoes, garlic, white bread, red wine vinegar, and extra virgin olive oil.

Here is my latest soup from Moro East: Hassan’s celery and white bean soup with tomato and caraway.

This makes 25 completed recipes from Moro East. Percentage complete: 15.63%

And, finally, some garden progress: I have been eating many arugula, radish, and herb salads this past month, but I think the garden is about to produce much more. The buds are so pretty, I think.
