If you missed the cooking demonstration  and recipes for the Rooted in Appalachia Roadshow, here they are…

Miss Pattie’s favorite Stirfry:

1/2 cup of 5 vegetables:  Pattie chose peas, cauliflower, broccoli, green onions  and mushrooms and  1/4 cup of soy sauce.  She washed and chopped the veggies to small bite size pieces and sauted in a little oil until tender and seasoned with soy sauce.

In addition, Michelle added 2 quick and fun recipes for raw carrots:

“Dirt Dip” from Martha Stewart Living  featured roasted kalamata olives  over a ricotta cheese dip.  Dry the olives for 3 hours in a  275 oven.  Process in a food proceessor until finely chopped.  Set aside.  Mix 1 cup ricotta with 1 tablespoon heavy cream and whip.  Top with olive “dirt” and serve with baby vegetables.

Sesame Carrots featured grated raw carrots drizzled with 1 tablespoon roasted seasame oil and 1 teaspoon lemon juice and topped with roasted sesame seeds.
