This week’s Farm Share will most likely include:
Green Beans, Summer Squash, Cucumbers, Basil, Salad Mix, Lettuce head, Bok Choy, Garlic Scapes, and Broccoli.
Recipe Suggestions: (which we catalog weekly on our Recipe Page)
Garlic Scapes – Hopefully last week you all go oriented to this early summer wonder. You can also enjoy it as Pickled Garlic Scapes or make Garlic Scape Dressing for salads.
Bok Choy – We really love this vegetable, but it is not incredibly well know. Last week we suggested braising it in broth, but it is also wonderful raw. We have been using it thinly shredded on and under many dishes this week. The stems are so mild and crunchy they are much like celery. Use it that way! Here is a simple Bok Choy Salad recipe – you can use the choy mein noodles it calls for or not. Or slice it thinly and serve any protein on top. We put roasted turkey on top of Bok Choy this weekend. We love it, and hope you do to.
Summer Squash and Basil – This is a lovely combination together, such as in this recipe: Smothered Yellow Squash with Basil (you can use yellow squash and green zucchini squash interchangeably…we like to give you a combination of the colors for variety.)
All vegetables – are delicious under this Chinese Sesame Sauce recipe that we made a big batch of last week and have been pouring on top of most everything. (Except we used honey instead of sugar, and did not use as much as it called for.)
