Here’s a few ideas I put together this week to use up multiple share items at once. Some of them are small helpings, so they work well mixed with other ingredients as opposed to alone.
Sorry for the long silence! Seems like Mother Nature has forgotten to take her meds, but warm weather is on the way. And most of the crops have survived! Everyone here at Zoe’s has recovered from our spring illnesses, and we’re looking forward to a fantastic start for the season.
First piece of news: Microgreens. These are highly nutritious, gourmet bundles of taste. Farther along than a traditional sprout, but not big enough to be planted out in the garden, microgreens are the 8-12 day old shoots of various vegetables. David has been working with a wide variety, including pea shoots and red russian kale microgreens. If you’ve heard of these trendy little guys, it is through high end restaurants and gourmet magazines. They come at a premium in the grocery, but they’re going to be included in the first several weeks of our shares this year. They go well on salads, are fantastic used on sandwiches, and can be snacked upon straight from the harvest.
