Food bloggers around the world participate in Weekend Herb Blogging, where people post about interesting herbs, plants, veggies, and flowers and send me the links for a Recap on Sunday. What was new for this week?
From Spain, Kel from Green Olive Tree wrote about Lo Mai Gai or Chinese Style Glutinous Rice with Chicken and Shitake Mushrooms. In New York City, the Chocolate Lady from In Mol Araan (written in English and Yiddish) posted about a great sounding dish called Persian Herb Pie. In Italy, Ilva from Lucullian Delights created Crema di Carciofi, Patate e Ginepro or Artichoke and Potato Soup with Juniper Berries. In Singapore, Eggy from Greedy goose used the herb called Coriander, Cilantro or Chinese Parsley in her Grilled Coriander and Chile Prawns. Finally, in India, Sailu from Sailu's Food talked about the Moringa Tree, a super-nutritious plant which has the capability to prevent malnutrition in developing nations. Sailu also pointed us to an organization called Trees for Life which is working to promote the growth of this nutritious tree in India and Africa.
