Weekly Farm Notes :: June 15th, 2016

Hello,

If you received a text message earlier, you can expect a share for the CSA extension this week. If not, stop by anyways to pick up some veggies and say hi!

This week, Alice shares some of her favorite resources for clean eating (thanks for including us in your article, Alice!). Check out the list and then let her know if you have anything to add!

See you at market!

June 15th Produce

Here are the items you can expect at Market {M} and in the CSA {CSA}:

  • Swiss Chard {M/CSA}: the only way to eat soup in this heat is if it’s chilled. This Chilled Swiss Chard Soup was eye-opening the first time I made it and I continue to make it every summer.
  • Romaine & Green Leaf Lettuce {M/CSA}: I love bowl type meals, piled high with lots of different flavors and textures. This post, which includes a recipe for crunchy roasted chickpeas, breaks down the different elements that make a great vegan bowl meal.
  • Green Beans {CSA}: I saw a lovely recipe of green beans, bulgur, walnuts, mint all mixed with a tahini sauce. It is on my list of recipes to try but I encourage you to experiment if it sounds good to you too!
  • Carrots {CSA}: I have always loved pickles and carrots separately but luckily I know enough now to combine the two flavors. Try Lacto-Fermented Carrot Sticks for a sweet/sour treat!
  • Green Onions {CSA}: the newest market recipe – Zucchini & Herbed Ricotta Tartines – incorporates green onions into the ricotta mixture. If you don’t pick up a zucchini at market, you can use the same ricotta mixture with our cherry tomatoes for a quick and delicious meal!
  • Cabbage {CSA}: I haven’t tried this myself but I have charred cabbage in the skillet, and I can tell you the results were wonderful. If you already have the grill fired up, why not try this Grilled Cabbage recipe?
  • Red & Yellow Cherry Tomatoes {CSA}: it’s been quite a while since I linked to any tomato recipes on here, but here is one of my favorite – Cherry Tomato Gazpacho. We might not have enough to make this full recipe but supplement with some others from the market (and support other farms in the process!).
  • Herbs {M}: the herbs this week include basil, parsley, mint and lemon balm. I think all of these would be a great addition to these Seared Tofu Bahn Mi Sandwiches.
