Summer 2017 Week 3 (June 27th)

Summerweek3

Swiss chard, strawberries, mustard greens, salad mix, romain, green leaf lettuce, collard greens, broccoli, leek, onion, and carrots.

The first fruit of the summer! Beautiful strawberries, eat them right away. Leeks are a rarity from David, so consider them an oniony treat. I’ll refer back to this post for the mustard greens.  For recipe links in general just click the name of the vegetable to the right, I only tag them when a recipe for that item is included/linked to.  Happy eating everyone!

Spring 2017 Week 6 (May 9th)

New this week is the Chinese snow broccoli, David said the stems are the best part, so don’t discard. Here’s some good info on how to cook many greens that we have and will be getting, Chinese style.  A couple of spinach recipes I’ve tried lately are India saag and greek rice.  Here’s a recipe that’s a little more work, I just sauteed onion/shallot and spinach, tossed with leftover cooked rice, sprinkle of feta and squeeze of lemon juice. This Saag Paneer used up two bags of spinach and I used chickpeas instead of the cheese.
