Well, hello there! Were you wondering what on earth to do with the bounty from your garden? Today Child #4 and I were out playing in the dirt in the community garden and we dug a few new potatoes and onions. We also picked tomatoes, peppers, (both hot and sweet!) cucumbers, green beans, and zucchini. A bountiful harvest to be sure. But what to do with all of that goodness?
You will need the following:
1/4 cup butter (or non-dairy alternative)
1 large, sweet onion sliced in half and then sliced lengthwise in 1/2 inch strips (or four small, sweet garden onions if you don’t have a leftover one from the store like I did!)
6 – 8 new potatoes cut into smallish chunks
3 cloves fresh garlic, peeled, smashed (with the side of your knife) and sliced
4 small chicken breasts cut into 1″ chunks (about 1.5 lbs.) or tofu done the same way, if you’re doing this vegetarian style
1 large green pepper cored and sliced into 1/2 inch strips
1/2 cup of fresh green beans with the growing ends taken off and the rest of the bean snapped into 1″ pieces
Salt and pepper to taste (I used about 1 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper)
2 cups sour cream (or non-dairy alternative)
In a large frying pan, melt butter over medium heat. When melted, add the onions and potatoes. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cover if you have a lid. I did not, so there you go.
Add garlic and chicken. Cook until potatoes are able to be sliced with only a little bit of resistance and the chicken is cooked through, while still stirring occasionally.
Add beans, green pepper, salt, and pepper, still stirring frequently.
When all is cooked through, add sour cream and stir constantly until mixed in and warmed through. Enjoy!
