See you at market!

October 14th Produce

Here are the items you can expect at Market (denoted by M) and/or in the CSA (denoted by CSA):

  • Awesome Asian Lettuce Mix {CSA/M}: check out this Turmeric Tahini Dressing – I think it would be great on these greens!
  • Daikon Radishes and Greens {CSA/M}: did you know that a 7″ long daikon radish has more Vitamin C than a small orange?! There are 74mg of Vitamin C in a daikon compared to 51mg in an orange.
  • Pak Choi {CSA/M}: have you tried our Raw Spicy Pak Choi Salad yet? Let us know what you think!
  • Napa Chinese Cabbage {CSA/M}: here is a link with lots of ideas of how to use your cabbage! I am definitely planning to make the quick kimchi (with the addition of daikon radishes) that is mentioned in this post.
  • Spicy Mustard Greens {CSA/M}: I love adding mustard greens to curried dishes (think chickpeas) or red lentils. The flavor really stands up well to intensely spiced dishes.
  • Kohlrabi {CSA}: I made these kohlrabi fries last season and loved them! It’s a fun, new way to enjoy kohlrabi.
  • Mild Mustard Greens {M}: these greens are mild enough to eat raw. Why not add some to your next salad?
  • Kale {CSA/M}: pick up some potatoes and eggs and make this easy, weeknight soup!
  • Tender Collards {M}: our Collard Green & Pecan Pesto recipe is one of my favorite pesto recipes. It can be frozen and is a great way to preserve your greens.
  • Arugula {M}: these greens are one of the best vegetable sources of Vitamin K, providing a boost for bone and brain health.
  • Salad Turnips {M}: these turnips are great raw but if you need a change of pace, try our Roasted Radish & Turnips with Barley Salad.
  • Red Leaf Lettuce {M}: check out our Essential Elements of a Satisfying Salad post and create a salad without a recipe.
  • Eggs {M}: my new go-to weeknight recipe is brown rice, a fried egg and vegetables (any of our veggies would be a great!) topped with a little soy sauce. Pick up some of our organic eggs and have a meal ready in minutes!
