Farm Share CSA Members – this week’s share will likely consist of:
Radishes, Arugula, Kale, Bok/Pac Choi, Salad Mix, Napa Cabbage, and Cucumbers (yes! It’s true! The first of the season!)
Recipe Suggestions: (always cataloged on our Recipe Page)
Bok/Pac Choi – You say Bok Choi, we say Pac Choi…This variety is actually Joi Choi, but these details don’t matter. Prepare the same way. We get the most questions about how to cook this item. No worries: It is super simple, nice and crunchy stems, and very delicious. Check out a host of mouth watering recipe ideas for Bok Choi here. (Highlights: Bok Choi with Noodle Soup; Bok Choi with Mushrooms and Tamari Miso Glaze over Quinoa. YUM!)
Napa Cabbage – This one also throws people. Think of it like Spinach or Kale: It is great raw or cooked (saute, steam, braise, stir fry…). Look at these amazing options here. (Get ready to drool.)
Radishes – Slice raw over salad greens. Roast with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper, plus some onions if you have them. Eat the spicy greens if you are brave.
Arugula – Enjoy alone, mixed with other greens, or on top of pizza. Or make Arugula Pesto or Arugula Aioli and slather it on bread, pasta, crackers, or cucumber slices.
Salad Mix – top with this Tahini based dressing.
