Results from the first trip to the CSA and my first week preparing the produce is in. Freshness is amazing. Lacking is my ability to convert a recipe into a dish that is as amazing as the food is fresh. Last night I prepared a salad using various greens that I picked up last night. The salad was good but some of the greens were somewhat bitter and probably should not have been included.
Here is what I picked up this week: Garlic Scapes, Salad Turnips, Carrots, Bok Choi, Lettuce, Swiss Chard, Kale, Mustard Greens, Escarole. In the pick your own section I picked cilantro, scallions, and some green beans. As you can see in the photo I had quite a bounty (the photo is only one of two containers).
I made a vegan soup last week that turned out pretty good, but needed additional spices. I’ll keep trying and let you know if I made any progress over the summer.
