It’s food day on the blog, and I will do food, but first I have to announce that SAGE Book 1: The Fall of Onagros is live on Amazon for Kindle! ~sound of trumpets~ It’s going up on Smashwords in multiple formats, and it will soon be in print, as well. The other two books are finished, contracted, and going through final edits.
Now, since we’re talking about sage, did you know you can eat sage leaves other than as part of stuffing? I just discovered this. Here are two ways:
Pick some fresh sage leaves, or buy some fresh ones at the grocery. Dried doesn’t work. Heat some oil in a skillet and place the leaves in the hot oil. Turn them carefully. Cook for maybe a couple of minutes. Take them out and drain them. Put them on top of a dish as a garnish. I don’t think you’d want to make a meal of them, but they’re very good!
Here’s another way:
Again, pick some fresh leaves. This time, cut or tear them into pieces. Drain and rinse a can of garbanzo beans (chickpeas). Dry the beans thoroughly. Heat some oil in a skillet. Put the beans and sage into the oil. Season to taste. Cook, stirring, until the beans are lightly browned and the sage is crisp.
Oh, and read my book! 🙂
