A very nice linner: Chicken hearts with bitter melon, and a BC gewürztraminer

Odd that we have “brunch” for a meal that combines breakfast and lunch, but no “linner” for lunch and dinner. Perhaps it should be “lunner.”

I used the Field Company No. 12, which I put into the oven and turned it on to 350ºF.

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
8 cloves garlic, minced
1 very long Chinese leek, sliced
1/2 very large red bell pepper, chopped (a very dark red: lovely pepper)
2 jalapeño peppers, chopped small
1/2 large bitter melon, chopped (see photo)
good pinch of salt and several grindings of black pepper
280g (about 10 oz) chicken hearts

Once the oven came to temperature and the skillet was hot, I put it on a hot burner and added olive oil, vegetables, salt, and pepper. I cooked that for a minute or two, then added the chicken hearts.

I cooked, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. It was extremely tasty, and I believe good for me. No asparagus, you will note. I’m trying to pace that.

I did pick up three different kinds of Chinese greens, and one is new to me: a Chinese spinach. I’ll have that tomorrow.
