For anyone wondering what this veggie is, it is a specialty Cauliflower with delicious flavor. It is cooked and used like any regular Cauliflower. Some boxes got this type and some got the regular white kind.
Do you sometimes wonder what to do with summer squash? Kirsten stir fried the summer squash along with some fennel, celery, and purple pepper and served it with our sausage. A simple meal and quick to prepare.
For all our box customers, the peas you are getting this week in your boxes are edible pod peas and do not need to be shelled. You eat the pod and all and we think they are best eaten raw.
Just take the stem end and snap it back pulling the string off then you can eat them fresh just like that or you can chop them into a salad along with lettuce and broccoli as you can see pictured here. I think these peas will become your new favorite!
Here is picture of tonight's supper. Kirsten added rapini, yellow summer squash, zucchini and bacon to the noodles to create a delicious warm casserole type supper.
For many of you Rapini is a new vegetable. It can be eaten raw, steamed, or stir fried but we typically like it best when mixed with other veggies.
Here is a picture of the Rapini being chopped up. It is a nice green veggie in the broccoli and cabbage family. We usually only send it in the first box or two until the broccoli is ready. Most people prefer broccoli but Rapini helps fill the first box or two to kick the season off.
The other day Bruce wanted to make a salad. Kirsten helped him and together this is what they made.
Everything is from the farm and it includes, lettuce, rapini, beet greens, green garlic stems, strawberries, cherry tomatoes, along with our bacon and eggs.
This was our dinner and it was delicious. If you are having trouble using all your greens this certainly is a great way to enjoy them.
