Can you believe we’re halfway through the year! Summer is a great time for stir-fries with all the fresh produce showing up at stores and farmers’ markets around the country. This month we have two great recipes that take advantage of great summer veggies.
- Chicken with Garlic and Sugar Snaps, p. 75
- Susan Lin’s Summer Long Beans and Eggs, p. 140
A note on long beans – you can find them in almost any Asian grocery store and even some larger specialty or organic groceries stores. Check your local farmers’ market too, many farms are now growing this Asian speciality (you may see them listed as yard beans or yard-long beans). Long beans can be either dark green or light green, but look for ones that are vibrant and don’t have any aging spots on them.
