Round-Up: Weekend Herb Blogging #231

Posted in Events/Round-Ups by Janet M on May 3, 2010

I was fortunate to host Weekend Herb Blogging this week, in which food bloggers share their recipes featuring any herb, fruit, vegetable, nut, grain, seed, flower or plant. It was initially created by Kalyn but now hosted by Haalo.

Without further ado, here are our yummy submissions this week:

A tantalizing sandwich layering  roasted eggplant, zucchini, tomato, mushrooms

and Halloumi cheese with a balsamic and honey dressing.

Bananas (or traditionally plantains) are dredged in brown sugar, wrapped tightly

in an egg roll wrapper and fried until golden and crispy. How sweet this sounds!

mushrooms to create a milky breakfast soup perfect for any time of day.
