  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (or white vinegar)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 pieces wild garlic (or use 4-5 garlic cloves) chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger minced
  • Big pinch pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried bergamot (or use dried oregano)

Wild rice blend with sweet grass and wild chives:

  • 1 cup cooked white or brown rice

Directions

Marinade:

Skewers:

  1. Soak wooden skewers in water ten minutes. Skewer meat pieces and rotate with asparagus on each skewer (or any vegetable you like, mushrooms, onions, peppers).
  2. Heat large pan (cast iron is the best) or barbecue to high. Place one tablespoon oil into pan, add skewers. Cook three minutes on each side, cook until desired doneness.
