What Is It?

It's food. I ate some today for lunch.
I loved, loved this meal. So easy and deeply flavorful.
So, what is it?
It is not green octopus.
And "Moby Pickle" is likewise incorrect.

I dunno..chinese long bean with acne?

Anita said...

Scooter Libby's rotten soul?

(oo, did I say that out loud?)

Anita: Guffaw!
I jump in here immediately to laugh.
I've heard from pals saying "why aren't you blogging about this shiz?" and... I'm just wrung out.
I might have something tomorrow.
Ohgod, this world of ours. :(

Greg: You are a clown.

Keep 'em coming, folks.

Is it nopales that are already cut up?

Stephanie V.W. Lucianovic said...

Sea beans?

Era said...

It looks like the stem of some sort of mustard green, all the leaves are picked off.

Pam said...

Martian gummy worms? Nopales edges?

Did you pull it from your local marsh? Marsh Greens, that's muh guess.

My tomato plants are nearing 7 feet across.

It looks like my quamQauat tree which was infested by nasty stuff. I had to use Ortho Products. I am sorry. Better living by Ortho is not my style.
Broccoli Rob with Sesamie seeds?

El said...

I'd wager something in the brassica family. (It's a big one so it's a big net I am casting>)

I'd second Anita's guess, though. I am hearing "Pardon" loud and clear from this White House and it pisses me off. (But I eat, too.)

Darn! Jennifer took my guess.

roasted fiddleferns

kudzu said...

Shoot!! I was just going to guess fiddleheads when chilebrown stole my slot. Have been thinking of the image since I saw it earler. How did you fix 'em?

MizD said...

Ditto Stephanie. Looks like sea beans to me. Of course if it were at this house, I'd say: Those pickled green beans that fell into the sink two weeks ago, got buried under a pile of dirty dishes, and are now home base for a colony of overly-promiscuous fruit flies.

chopped up bits of prickly pear?

Sam said...

I am with dancingmorganmouse. Actually - I think I am with Anita. That is the comment to end all comments. Brilliant!

Ha, ha!
We have a winner. Anita, with...
Nope, jes' kidding.
Four or five of you were very close, and Pam nailed it exactly: It's nopales edges. The cut-up bits went into the oven with salt and a little oil, roasted for 20 minutes, and then went onto tortillas for a lunch of dandy tostadas (decorated with tomatoes, cotija cheese, a little onion.
Now, back to pondering the shipwreck that is our ship of state.
HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!
