The veggies have landed! After some confusion last week, we are back on track.
And so is summer! The coldest July in 75 years did not exactly do much for heat-loving summer crops, but we’re finally getting a few.
This week we also got micro basil and mini-white cucumbers, but I neglected to take a photo of them. You can see them from a previous week if you want.
A few recipes ideas for using up your CSA vegetables:
- Pickles! (cucumbers, carrots)
- Sesame Peanut Noodles (cucumber, sprouts)
- Tofu Pad Thai (sprouts)
- Warm Beet and Carrot Salad (carrots)
- Baked Eggrolls (Swiss chard)
- Sauteed Beets with Chard (Swiss chard)
- Pasta Alla Norma (eggplant)
There’s a raw beet and carrot salad I’m thinking of making, we’re pickling some of the carrots for a special project, and I have some other ideas. I’m pretty excited about the fava beans and okra, but they might have to wait until my day off to devote some time and daylight to using them.
What’s in your CSA?
