Maybe it’s just me, but this week’s box seems bigger. There are a couple of new additions but the portion sizes are a little bit larger. Yay! I have been pretty happy so far in my CSA experience. This just keeps getting better.
I’m pretty excited to see those carrots. I might not share them this time.
The full list is spinach, braising mix, lettuce, carrots, green onions, arugula, asparagus, beets, turnips, chard and garlic chives. Any good recipe suggestions?
The weekly newsletter gave some nice tips for keeping the veggies fresh and preparing them. Good thing … I would hate to waste this green goodness.
I might try this recipe from my main CSA Farm, Lattin Farms from Fallon, Nevada:
Lattin Farms Cream of Spinach Soup
1/2 cup chopped onion, sauteed in butter until tender
1 bag of spinach, shredded into thin pieces
2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
3 cups half and half
Add onion, garlic to spinach and cook just until spinach is slightly tender. Don’t overcook. At this time, you can puree half of the mixture if like a chunky soup or puree all of it. Melt butter in a pan. Whisk in flour until smooth. Add half and half and stir until smooth. Add cream mixture to spinach and heat just until warm. Do not boil. Stir constantly. Enjoy!
