One of the best things that usually happens when we visit Moldova in summer is the garden fresh, better than organic grown berries, fruits and vegetables. You can somewhat trust the old farmer sitting with a pail of tomatoes at the local market, but you cannot trust the bulk sellers. Poor does not mean no access to pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. In fact, poor and uneducated often translates into overuse and misuse of those. It is unfortunate, but bitter true.
Well, since we are talking of vegetables, and staying vegan for the most part (oh, we love raw milk ;), how about tantalizing the palate with this flavourful trio stew: summer squash, green beans and cauliflower! Spiced with just a tad of curry spice, garnished with toasted cumin seeds and cilantro, this dish can be perfect company to any cooked grains, pulses or pasta!
