Eat Your Veggies! Robert Treat Farm CSA Week 5
|July 6, 2014||Posted by Sarah under 2014 CSA, Connecticut|
Braised chard was the theme of the week since we both got it. Looks like Keira added some hot peppers to hers and I did mine in shallots, garlic and a touch of butter.
That’s some tasty stuff! I also made a quinoa salad with tomatoes, chicken and feta, and used the kohlrabi in a salad of romaine, carrots and steak. Great lunches all around!
Did you know that purple kohlrabi is only purple on the outside? I didn’t…strange.
Week 5 brings some repeats like kale and rabe, but some fun new items as well.
The most intriguing to me was the iceberg lettuce (bottom left) because it looks nothing like the light green round head that we are used to finding in grocery stores. This looked much more nutritious and appetizing!
I took home the heirloom beets, rabe, broccoli and fennel.
I’m really looking forward to making a beet and fennel salad (B will HATE that!) and sauteeing up the rabe with some good italian sausage. Any other thoughts on what to do with the fennel?
Have a great week and don’t forget to eat your veggies!
