CSA Week 2

Week #2 veggie pickup day…
Lots of greens again,

(click to enlarge)

Clockwise, starting with the white bulb things:

  1. Salad turnips (can be eaten raw, grated into coleslaw, tastes like a mild radish, or cooked, greens too)
  2. Purple kohlrabi (raw, grated into coleslaw, tastes like mild broccoli stem
  3. Broccoli rabe (I don’t like this, but Chris does… I’m determined to try to cook it)
  4. Spinach
  5. Cilantro (another veg I’m not fond of, but I’m going to use it to make Tom Yam Goong and Salsa)
  6. English peas
  7. Escarole (looks like green head of lettuce with white insides)
  8. Red Boston lettuce (center)

Yay! I’m going to make escarole soup tomorrow night while Chris is out (so that we can eat it for dinner on Friday). I’ll make coleslaw with turnips and kohlrabi for Saturday lunch, and the rest we can use for weeknight dinner sides. Mmmm.

Any veg heads that feel like stopping by are welcome to eat a veggie meal with us any time! Hint hint.  🙂
