Bok choy (2 varieties), cherries, zucchini, summer squash, chinese broccoli, miniature romain, carrots, curly leaf kale, broccoli, radishes, cucumber (2 varieties).

 

I usually prefer kale in a soup, but that is clearly out of the question, so here’s a recipe for kale rice.  It’s still early in the season so we can still look forward to zucchini. My favorite way to prepare which takes me back to my grandma’s kitchen is to sautee some onion, add 1/4 inch rounds of zucchini, fresh or frozen corn kernels, and a splash of broth. Cover to steam and just before done top with cheddar cheese to let melt. Here’s a more traditional Mexican recipe.  The persian cucumbers and radishes can go in this asian salad (side dish for a stir fry with bok choys, zucchini, broccoli).

Bok Choy, leek, spring onions, miniature romain, lacinto/dionsaur kale, spinach, snow peas, chinese long beans, chrysanthemum breens, strawberries, pea shoots, cilantro. carrots, turnip greens, radishes.

Chrysanthemum greens have an herby taste and do well tossed in at the end of cooking stir fries (with bok choy, long beans, spring onions) or on soup. Do not overcook, they will turn brown and mushy. Here’s a recipe for it as a side dish.

Kohlrabi, miniature romain, bok choy, cilantro, chinese broccoli, broccoli, bok choy, chinese snow broccoli, nappa cabbages, radish, pea shoots, asparagus, carrots.

Hello summer members. Here are some ideas for the Chinese greens.  I had this Mexican-inspired salad at a recipe group and loved the dressing that should use all that cilantro, romain, and radishes. Kohlrabi can be roasted, spiralized, pureed in soup, or in a slaw with cilantro like this. Try a pasta, risotto, flat bread, or frittata with asparagus and pea shoots.
