This year, I bought a share in a CSA (community-supported agriculture). My first farm share.
I don’t really do recipes, but I did want to share some delicious combinations of foods that I’ve stumbled upon while cooking up my weekly baskets of food.
Lemony greens and rice
Arborio rice, cooked risotto-style with vegetable broth and a chopped onion
Kale and chard, chopped and sauteed with garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, and walnuts
Not your average mac and cheese
Sauteed cauliflower + onion + green bell peppers + penne pasta + cheddar cheese sauce
A New England Jewish girl gets over her fear of collards
A chopped and sautéed onion + a few ears of fresh corn, cut from the cob + a chopped green bell pepper + blanched collard greens + a little salt, pepper, and cumin
Take one peach. Wash. Eat. Make sure to catch the dripping peach juice before it falls.
If you want real recipes, here are two from people who are famous for such things. I’ve made them both and love them.
Tomato and Corn Pie (from Smitten Kitchen)
Tomato Sauce with Eggplant, Caponata Style (from Mark Bittman)
