I do still go to my CSA and pick up my weekly share, but I haven't been to the grocery store for things like pasta or rice in a while.
I had a tilapia fillet in the freezer. I like tilapia--it's a light, mild fish that can be cooked in a variety of dishes. I got creative as I had a lot of things on hand that I needed to use up.
I chopped up four or five tomatoes from my garden and sauteed them in olive oil and garlic. I took the rind of a quarter of a preserved lemon, chopped it up, and added that in, letting the whole thing simmer over medium heat. I added the fish fillet and let it simmer in t he sauce, turning it over after about seven minutes and letting it cook more. Towards the end, I added some torn basil leaves.
Boom. Dinner. I added some steamed beet greens and rice on the side.
