woodstock-038Doolin Market’s celebration of  Woodstock’s  40th anniversary was a great success.  All of the vendors dressed up like hippies and many visitors, as well.  I didn’t have to look  far, I still have this bandana and the peasant blouse I wore from back in the day! And, I was thrilled to meet an American visitor who, like me, was actually at the 1969 festival. All of the Woodstock trivia quiz questions were answered except one, and how ironic that it was this one: Who was the only Irish performer at Woodstock? He was Henry McCullough who played guitar for Joe Cocker. Try with a little help from my friends, indeed! I called my menu after The Hog Farm, which was the commune that fed all of us for free. I named all of my vegetarian foods after the bands who played, Neil’s Young french beans, Santana’s sesame noodles, Joan Baez Mexican Lentil Soup, Janice Joplin’s jivin’ ginger honeyed carrots to name a few.  Here’s my recipe for sesame green beans, eat hot or cold. It’s gluen and dairy free.

In a wok or heavy fry pan, heat 1 Tbl. sesame oil. Add 2 chopped cloves of garlic, 1 Tbl. chopped fresh ginger, 2 chopped shallots.  Saute until they begin to soften. Add 1/2 pound of  trimmed green beans, 1/4 cup chopped red pepper, sea salt and pepper to taste. Cook until beans are tender. Sprinkle a little sesame oil and tamari over beans and serve. Peace!
