Morning! Time for another CSA update.
Can you even handle how huge that turnip is?! We got it during week 4 or 5, and we’re STILL eating it. I don’t even love turnips that much.
Here’s what our stash has included in the past couple of weeks:
- Week 6: Blueberries, spring onions, lettuce, squash, cucumbers, potatoes, peppers, eggplant, basil, turnips, fennel, collards, rainbow chard, dill
- Week 7: Corn, cucumbers, squash, potatoes, spring onions, lettuce, peppers, eggplant, tatsoi, lemon balm, basil, kale, and green chard
All the deliveries are kind of starting to blend together since we usually have some ingredients that last beyond a week, and we’ve also been stopping in at the farmer’s market on the weekend to pick up anything extra (plus meat and fish). Let’s just say there is definitely not a shortage of veggies in our home! Here are some of our latest creations:
Summer squash, bell pepper, and chickpea salad:
Hummus crusted chicken with a side of farro, bok choy, and turnips:
Ground lamb, chard, and kale stuffed eggplant:
Zucchini and shrimp fritters over greens:
Grilled mango and blueberry kale salad:
An easy cucumber salad with dill, inspired from our Veggietecher lunch at work:
Tropical kale smoothies (I’ve been adding 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder to this recipe)
Grilled haddock with a corn and tomato salsa, potatoes with onions, garlic, and parsley, and roasted zucchini/squash with dill:
Grain free zucchini muffins:
Grilled plum salad with cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and pine nuts over lettuce with a homemade citrus dressing made of lemon balm and orange:
Some fun meals, huh? The delivery we got yesterday might be my favorite yet though! Will share soon. 🙂
What have you been eating lately? Do you like turnips? Any recipe requests from this post?
