Lamb Sausage StirFry

Lamb Sausage StirFry

Lamb Sausage StirFryWe are so fortunate to live in the community of Marquette, Michigan where farm to table is the “way of life”; buying food from cooperative farms is the “norm” and food bought from vendors and delis is clean, unadulterated, wholesome and just plain “good for you”! My Lamb Sausage StirFry combines foods purchased from all of the above. First off our local CSA farm Seeds & Spores Family Farm, of which we are a member, provided me with the organic kale, carrots, pea pods, asparagus, scallions and fabulous log grown shiitake mushrooms. Seeds & Spores is a Certified Naturally Grown (CNA) farm where all the produce and livestock are raised using only natural and authentic farming techniques! Our local Farmer Q’s Market was my source for organic leeks, zucchini, bell pepper, garlic, ginger, broccoli and sweet and golden potatoes. Farmer Q’s Market specializes in foods that are Michigan Made and grown! Our local Steinhaus Market deli makes the North African specialty Merguez (lamb sausage) from scratch, where they source the lamb locally and make this wonderful sausage with no chemicals or additives! Fresh mint from my garden is my contribution as well as this fabulous recipe of clean meat and organic vegetables! So you could say that my Lamb Sausage StirFry is a community effort and as Farm to table as you can get! Enjoy my Lamb Sausage StirFry over soba, bean threads or jasmine rice. Delicious with a dry red wine, dry Reisling or local craft beer. Just yummy!!
