Daikon radish, spinach, granny smith apples, purple cabbage, carrots, miniature romain, mustard greens, swiss chard, brussels sprouts, potatoes, turnips, garlic, shallot, onion.

 

Just enough apples for a pie! I’ve been making this one lately. And luckily I mentioned my mustard green phobia last week, a member gave a great method that I’ve never heard.  Much like with spicy radishes, you salt the leaves (you can cut them first) and let them sit for half an hour, rinse, and squeeze as dry as possible before stir frying with garlic, chilis, ground pork and adding a little sugar and salt.

Parsnips, shallot, garlic, onion, spinach, arugula, mustard greens, miniature romain, broccolini, daikon radish, carrot, brussels sprouts, turnip, beets, purple cabbage.

Anyone else excited for beets?  I’ll be roasting those right away and putting them on a bed of arugula and sprinkling with chevre and balsamic vinegar. May as well roast the carrots, parsnips, turnips, and brussles on the same baking sheet. Here are some turnip ideas, many of which use other veggies from our box too. I have a hard time with mustard greens, but this simple recipe looks hopeful; vinegar in the mustard can cut the bitterness of the greens.

Fuji and Granny Smith Apples, Swiss chard, cabbage, arugula, spinach, salad mix, mustard greens, carrots, turnips, garlic, onion, baby potatoes, acorn squash.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. This Indian Root Vegetable Curry looks delicious and will use up turnip, carrot and swiss chard. And this Sheet Pan Salmon and Veggies looks great and will use cabbage, potatoes, and you could use acorn squash too.
