Washington Gardens: A love of fresh produce and homegrown vegetables inspires Casey Lister’s new cookbook Seasoned


Well, it had to happen eventually. We all knew it was only a matter of time before this obsessive garden fanatic managed to make her way onto these plant-filled pages. Today, the garden I want to share with you is my own.

It’s my pride and joy, my rampant addiction, and the culmination of decades of fascination with all things green and photosynthetic.

There are a few things in my life that I am very proud of. One is the leafy yard I share with my partner, Luke, and our dogs, Gus and Maple.

I’ve been hoping to share my garden with you one day, and this week I have the perfect excuse: my new cookbook, Sustainedjust published!

Sustained (like most things in my life) inspired by our garden. This is a cookbook for vegetarian food lovers and those who want to cook with the freshest and most flavorful ingredients in summer, fall, winter and spring.

With over 100 recipes featuring seasonal produce, it offers a way to eat deliciously, support local producers and show a little kindness to our planet. (Want to try the recipe from the book? Check out the Bean Bruschetta at left.)

But I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s make a backup. I started my garden in 2014. As an extremely procrastinating university student, I was planting seeds instead of learning, and I was much more interested in larks than lab reports.
