The first three recipes were standouts at the CSA Social: (Dan’s Mom wins the award for making the majority of the requested recipes!)
Cabbage: Fried Cabbage with Bacon, Garlic, and Caraway
Radishes: Dan’s Mom’s Famous Radish Dip: 2 bunches of radishes, 1 8 oz. package of cream cheese softened, 1/2 of a medium red onion, 1 tsp. dried dill, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 tsp. lemon juice, 2 Tbsp. mayo. Put the radishes, onion, and garlic in the food processor and processes until finely chopped. Transfer to a bowl and mix in the cream cheese, and rest of ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Kale: Creamy Kale Dip – follow this recipe, plus add a little nutmeg and some cheddar to make it taste just like CSA member Melissa’s, served at the CSA Social.
Bok Choy: One CSA Member told us this trick for enjoying fresh vegetables for dinner, like Bok Choy, and also navigating a busy schedule (such as multiple sports practices, meetings, etc., in the late afternoon/evening hours): “Purchase frozen organic wontons and make a simple broth (you can use organic broth cubes), simmer bok choy in the broth until your desired texture (we like softened but still with some crunch), and add the wontons according to their directions.” We think this is great! No need for homemade wontons for a busy family, Bok choy can be chopped and washed while the broth is heating up, and everyone wins.
Turnips: See Real Simple magazine’s 5 Super Simple Turnip recipe suggestions. No ingredients lists, no drawn out instructions. Peel, cook, combine with something delicious like bacon, cream & leeks, ginger & honey, etc.
