The Veggie Queen Featured in Community Market Newsletter

Last week (OK, it's really a couple of them now) after my trip to the farmer's market I went to Santa Rosa Community Market, my local, vegetarian natural foods store. I picked up their newsletter and their feature story was about me and my book The Veggie Queen: Vegetables Get the Royal Treatment.

Along with the interview is my recipe for Asparagus, Oyster Mushroom and Tofu Stir-Fry. As I am currently growing oyster mushrooms at home it will be easy to pair them with my farmer's market asparagus and some great tofu from Small Planet, I'm ready to prepare my own recipe. I hadn't looked at it in so long, it didn't even seem like mine, which is a far cry from the time period when I was writing The Veggie Queen cookbook, and every recipe was fresh on my mind and in my face daily.

I feel as if I have put that baby to rest a bit and I am going to now forge ahead with my DVD Pressure Cooker project. Stay tuned for more details. In the mean time, keep those fresh veggies cooking -- under pressure or not.

Would you be so king as to tell us how many mushrooms you grow at home?

I am from South Africa and have an Oyster
Mushroom Farm

I have some picture on my oyster
mushroom blog

Have a nice day!

My growing looks like yours except I don't have row upon row (although I wish that I did). I have a few bags at a time in my spare bathroom. It's great fun. Glad to hear that you just can't keep up with demand. That's a good problem. Good luck.
