Eat Your Veggies! Robert Treat Farm CSA Week 7
|July 20, 2014||Posted by Sarah under 2014 CSA|
Last weekend I roasted up all those beets I had been saving and made a bunch of delicious meals from them, including a Beet, Fennel & Goat Cheese Salad. YUM!
I also made a great dish with all the Tatsoi a received last week. I sauteed them up with Prosciutto, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Garlic & Canellini Beans. Toss in a bit of Parmesan at the end and you’ve got a great dinner!
Keira cooked her cauliflower with some sauteed onion, garlic and parsley. That’s looks tasty!
My goal this week was to take home things that I could move through fairly quickly since I am traveling next week. Keira took the Golden Zuchini and Radishes since I can’t eat those, and she also took the Scallions and Parsley since I already had those at home. I took the Fava Beans and then traded in the Bok Choy and Curly Kale for more Fava Beans. We also received 3 Onions and 30 Potatoes, so we split those up.
If you’ve every shelled Fava Beans, you know that you don’t get much out of those giant pods. It’s a lot of work, but in the end fresh Fava Beans are one of the most delicious treasures of summer.
I’m going to make both a puree and a succotash of fava beans and corn. Stay tuned for that next week!
And finally, I saw the most amazing garden statue at the farm this week. If anyone would like to help me save up $349 +tax to bring him home, I will forever be in your debt. We will name his Sexy Rexy and the HAT must be included… (Extra brownie points if you can name that movie reference…)
