Grilled carrots on the farm!
A popular Northern Vietnamese dish is sauteed greens known as chayote cooked with garlic. Also a popular Northern dish are fried and salted peanuts. These were served in our hotel after a long day of sightseeing.
Fresh water chestnuts in Vietnam
I was surprised to see these outside of a can in a grocery store. They tasted so crisp and a bit sweet. It was a nice crunchy treat!
Flaming red lipstick peppers and purple eggplants from the Farmer’s Market. It was the first time I’ve heard or tasted the peppers. They are sweeter than normal bell peppers and have great color. Definitely want to go back for more. Both were great to the ratatouille I made tonight.
