Hi tumblr-world! It’s been a little while. I’m happy to announce that our summer CSA has started and it is amazing! So, here we go again… in between marathon work-sessions to make sure people know Neighborsations is the most amazing new platform to meet and make friends in your neighborhood, I’ll be listing what we got and how we’ll use it.
This week the box was HUGE. We got bibb lettuce, baby greens, red leaf romaine lettuce, another kind of lettuce/spring greens, radishes, asparagus, potatoes, swiss chard, kale, rhubarb, and spring onions.
The radishes were cooked last night… both greens and actual radishes. I love sauteing them in butter with some garlic, salt, and pepper. We threw the kale in there as well because there wasn’t a lot.
All the greens will be eaten in salads, and sandwiches (we had salmon burgers last night).
I have no idea what to do with rhubarb except make a strawberry rhubarb crisp (also what would you do besides that) so that’s what I’ll do.
The chard will be sauteed. Nothing better than the simple olive oil, salt, and pepper for that stuff.
I’m making some pasta on Wednesday with peas, mint, and parmasean, so the asparagus would be perfect in that.
Finally, at least some of the potatoes will go in to a minestrone soup. And the spring onions… geez those are like the ultimate “throw in anything” item. I add it to pasta, veggies, tofu dishes, and pretty much anything that needs a slight kick.
