Hello,

See you tomorrow at market!

March 2nd Produce

Here are the items you can expect at Market:

  • Toscano, Red Russian and Siberian Kale: check out our latest post – Super Greens & Sunflower Seed Pesto. There isn’t anything revolutionary here but I do like a pesto recipe that uses seeds over other expensive nuts. Also, the flavor of sunflower seeds stands up really nicely to a mix of greens but just plain kale would work great too.
  • Swiss Chard: I try to only go to the grocery store once, maybe twice a week. So there are times when there isn’t much left in the refrigerator and I need to feed a hungry 2-year-old (not to mention myself and an equally hungry husband). That is where this type of recipe comes in – bread, veggies and cheese will make anyone happy. You could really use any type of veggie but I think sauteed greens would be delicious.
  • Tender Collards: I am planning to use the collards from last week in a sweet potato coconut soup tonight. If the recipe turns out well, I will share it in a few days!
  • Mild Red Mustard: I haven’t experimented with mustard greens raw but I think this recipe, where it is tossed with walnuts, pears, Pecorino and a persimmon-shallot vinaigrette, sounds like a great salad option.
  • Peppery Arugula & Spicy Wasabi Arugula Flowers: these flowers would be a great addition to our Wasabi Arugula Rice Salad with Miso-Ginger Dressing recipe. You could use all sorts of greens in place of the wasabi arugula and then just top each plate with the flowers.
  • Chickweed: a couple options for the chickweed – 1) I think it would be great in our Dead Nettle and Henbit Pistou or 2) in this Chickweed Power Salad recipe. The pistou comes together in minutes whereas the salad takes a while to put together. Both delicious in very different ways but equally as enjoyable to consume 🙂
