Thank you for all of the baby blessings. He and mom are doing great!
Farm Share Members – This week’s share will likely consist of:
Winter Squash, Red and Green Tomatoes, Garlic, Salad Mix, Kale, a variety of a root vegetable (will vary by box – beets, carrots, or turnips), Sweet Peppers, Cilantro, and Tokyo Bekana (Take a deep breath…it is a strange name but a great green, either raw as a salad green or cooked. See below for recipe ideas.)
Recipe Suggestions: (cataloged on our Recipe Page)
Tokyo Bekana: Sauteed with Sesame, Ginger & Soy Sauce
Tokyo Bekana Asian Salad
Risotto with Tokyo Bekana
and so forth. Really, use it like Kale or Spinach. Enjoy!
Green Tomatoes: Grilled Chicken (or any protein) Taco with Green Tomato Salsa
or…just mix into any salsa to add some crunch and tartness. Perfect with the Cilantro and Sweet Peppers this week.
Winter Squash: Hands down, our preferred way to prepare winter squash is to cut it in half, place upside down in glass baking dish with a half inch of water added, and baked at around 375 for about 30 minutes or so. Then scoop out the yuumy flesh and serve on the side of anything. Top with warm salsa, or butter and maple syrup, or olive oil with salt and pepper…the options are as long as your creativity.
OR – for smooth skinned varieties, peel, dice, and saute with greens and protein.
OR – bake as above and then mix into a sweet bread dough (think of it like pumpkin here) such as Autumn Spiced Butternut Squash Bread
That should do you in the recipe department…
