- 1 bunch Swiss chard
- 1 bunch amaranth
- 1 bunch kale
- 1 small box of tomatoes - yay!
- 2 lettuces
- 2 bunches of broccoli
- 2 bunches of spring onions
- 1 bunch of bok choy
So here's what I think I'm doing with these items:
- The lettuces are going to be used as wraps for pork larb (a salad of ground pork and herbs).
- The tomatoes are going into either a salad or a quick tomato sauce for fresh pasta.
- I have a bushel of lettuce that I'll turn into lettuce soup.
- I'm pickling the spring onions and using the long scallion-like leaves as scallions.
- The kale will be turned into a white bean and kale pesto spread.
- I'm going to use the amaranth to make callaloo again.
- The broccoli will be steamed and sauced with lots of garlic, anchovy and parsley.
- Bok choy becomes a stir fry (with last week's still unused bok choy).
- I'll probably make some sort of tabouli-ish salad with the chard.
So how'd I do with last week's haul? Here's what we ate (and what CSA items were used) last week:
- Kale-wrapped lamb patties (ugly, but delicious) (kale, lamb)
- Beet carpaccio (beets, onions from CSA share and beets from Farmer Bob)
- Sri Lankan amaranth (finally!) (amaranth), curried cauliflower (cauliflower from Farmer Bob) and radish pickle (radishes from Farmer Bob, onion from CSA share)
- Pea risotto (peas, pea greens) with bacon & egg
- Pickled Swiss chard stems (Swiss chard) - that's them over there
- Beet green, tomato and bacon sauté with seared gnocchi
This Summer, I am chronicling my first CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) experience. My CSA share is from Arrowhead Farm, a farm based in Newburyport, MA. Each week, I am posting about what was in my share and what I'm doing with it. By way of full disclosure, I won my share through a raffle and am not paying for it. However, Arrowhead did not know I was entered in the raffle, and I received no special consideration because of this blog. I paid for my livestock share.
