Cooking with Cactus

Gregory Schaefer from G WORD’S “Ultimate Eco Cook Off” here, reflecting on what was, quite possibly, the manliest thing I’ve ever cooked: CACTUS!

I was scared to death with this challenge.

I kept it real simple, frittata. You know, there’s nothing like a great frittata and a South Western one with chipotles and corn and CACTUS? It was a pretty seamless creation for me.

Recipe after the break…

Olive Oil
2 Leeks, white parts only, sliced
1 Bulb of Elephant Garlic
2 Ears of organic corn
3 Chipotle Peppers, chopped fine
4 Paddles of seared cactus, sliced into 4” strips
1 Tomato, diced
1/2 Cup Goat Cheese
6 eggs
