Every day I am eating something I grew and posting on Food Freedom Radio’s Facebook.  Chives grow like weeds, best early spring.  Mix with free range chicken, mushrooms garlic & ginger.

  1. Cut chives, wash and dice, put aside.
  2. Turn on stove and add garlic & ginger to your favorite stir fry pan with a little olive oil. Over medium heat stir fry for a minute or two minutes, add chicken (or preferred protein source) cook until protein is done. May need to add a touch more oil then add chives & mushrooms, stir until chives are done to your taste. Usually 2 to 3 minutes).

(*to taste, note: chives grow like weeds and return every year so are a great source of free organic greens)
