Living in one of the richest agricultural pockets in the country, SWVA sure has lots to offer when it comes to blending up a locally sourced dinner. With local farmers, growers & food producers in the region, it helps when you're craving something just scrumptious. Tuesday pm & Saturday am Abingdon farmers markets are just the place to find all of these ingredients! And, while you're at it, why not whisk some WBJ into that "secret sauce"?
The other night, this collaboration of goodness was made at our house. Chicken (Roffey Cattle Company, Elk Garden, VA), The Baker Homestead Goat Cheese (Abingdon, VA), Spinach, garlic, onions, shiitake mushrooms & herbs (Nicole & Kyle's garden and logs) & hand-squeezed almond milk & orange juice (White Birch Juice).
Try it for yourself!
1) Pan sear the chicken (sectioned into pieces) in olive oil, garlic, onion salt, pepper & balsamic reduction until cooked thoroughly.
2) Meanwhile, sauté spinach, herbs (of your choice) and mushrooms in olive oil
3) for sauce: stirring constantly, add olive oil, almond milk, orange juice, Braggs liquid aminos, ginger, garlic, orange zest, goat cheese.
YUM. Biscuit (the pup) just wants a little bite!
