This week, our boxes will include:
- sweet potatoes
- overwintered carrots
- sweet potatoes
- arugula/salad mix
- sword leaf lettuce (Yu Mai Tsai)
- choice of herb
- possibly snow peas/snap peas
Ideas for Food Prep:
- As I usually say, you might think about braising some or all of your greens. I’ve been braising all of mine, except for the arugula.
- Wash any greens you want to use for salads, so they’re ready to go.
- Cut up the carrots and radishes to use for snacks
- I’ve been roasting all of my sweet potatoes for Madeline to have on hand for snacks
- Have salad dressings (homemade or bought) on hand.
- It’s a great time to hit an ethnic supermarket and stock up on things like oyster sauce, fermented black beans, different kinds of noodles and rice, etc. They make putting dinner together easier!
Here are some recipes to try!
Spaghetti with Mascarpone, Meyer Lemon, Spinach, and Hazelnuts (veg gf) use gf pasta
Crustless Spinach, Onion and Feta Quiche (veg) this would work great with chard or with finally chopped kale and rehydrated sundried tomatoes.
Garam Masala Yogurt-Creamed Spinach (veg)
Potato Salad with Yogurt, Arugula, and Dill (veg gf)
Spring Mix Salad with Sweet Miso Dressing (veg gf v)
Goat Cheese and Arugula over Penne (veg) – I’d use canned, diced tomatoes and add them in with the pasta right after you drain it and cook it over the residual heat for a minute or two.
Roasted Radishes (veg gf v)
Flatbread with Smoked Trout, Radishes, and Herbs
Sweet and Sour Stir-Fried Radishes With Their Greens (veg gf v)
SNOW PEAS/SNAP PEAS:

Burrata With Snap Peas and Shiitakes (veg gf) – Trader Joes has burrata. If you haven’t tried it yet, you’re missing out.
Sesame Chicken with Sugar Snap Peas (gf with GF soy sauce)
On Friday, I’ll let you know how our family used our CSA share. Have a wonderful week everyone!
gf: gluten free
If a recipe can very easily be made vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free using simple substitutes like non-dairy spread, vegetable stock, gluten free soy sauce or a small amount of gluten free flour, or by leaving out an ingredient, I’ve coded them with that in mind. If they include things like mayonnaise, eggs, milk or large quantities of flour, I haven’t coded them as such. I don’t have experience using things like egg substitute, non-dairy cheese or subbing in gluten-free flours. Please double check the ingredients for your own safety!
