I joined a CSA this year, which has been an exciting adventure into vegetables that have never before graced my kitchen.
So far, I have discovered turnips, kolrabi, bok choi, Swiss chard, kale, garlic scapes and rhubarb. We have managed to eat most of it, although the quality of our recipes are improving with time.
I think our favorite so far has been a snap peas recipe. You take fresh snap peas, boil them until they’re bright green, than blanche in cold water. Heat up oil in a stir fry pan, then add snap peas, chopped scallions, soy sauce and some sesame sauce.
Nearly instant yum.
My CSA has excellent recipe resources for vegetables that are perhaps new to you too. I thought I ought to share the link. It’s an adventure in food that we’re really enjoying a lot.
If only for the fresh strawberries. So, so, unbelievably fresh and yum. I feel like I never knew what food tasted like before.
