Here are three sample dishes I made from our garden harvests:
Chrysanthemum greens with baked tofu side dish -- blanch the greens for about half a minute in boiling water, drain, and press out excess liquid, coarsely cut the greens. In a large bowl combine chrysanthemum and baked tofu (finely chopped) together, season the vegetable with some sea salt, toasted sesame oil, and a pinch of sugar, add couple drops of rice vinegar if you like, then toss everything together, and garnish with minced red pepper.
Grilled baby green garlic -- brush garlic with olive oil and grill for about a minute or two, they cook really fast, watch it closely so they don't dry up. The dip is quite simple, I use Korean seasoned bean paste (comes in a green plastic container), add few drops of sesame oil, pinch of sugar, and some minced ginger, that was it!
This is green garlic stir fry with Chinese sausage, stir frying with beef or pork is another popular Chinese dish when the vegetable is in season.
