Ginger Creations

We have a lot of fresh ginger growing in the garden behind our house and so, being the frugal and innovative missionaries that we are, decided to plan our weekly menu accordingly. For those of you who aren't aware, the part of ginger used for eating/cooking is actually the root of a waist-high leafy green plant.

First, Eric harvests the future food product (being careful not to disturb the nearby pumpkins)
Here's the root portion
The final product: Ginger Carrot Soup accompanied by Carmelized Onion/Sundried Tomato Focaccia. Both created by Eric the Master Chef. The next day we had Ginger Glazed Tilapia (it was supposed to be Mahi Mahi according to the recipe, but we make do) which was also yummy, but not photographed. Other ideas, folks?

I had a Chinese student whose mom said the best chicken soup always has ginger in it.

Yeah! Ginger is the perfect ingredient for chicken soup or any vegetable soup. That's so cool that you are growing it. We can't grow it in Central Minnesota . . . :(

Do you have beef growing in your garden? I love fresh ginger for Mongolian Beef. Not really a healthy menu option though.
