CSA - June 20

Thursday, June 20, 2013

I was on vacation last week (in more ways than one, actually), but now I am back!

And what better way to come back to SparkPeople than with a blog about today's CSA box.

Here's the bounty!

Garlic scapes ... weren't we just discussing those?
Summer squash, both zucchini and yellow.
Red and Green Leaf Lettuces
Alfalfa Sprouts
Fresh Sage
And a loaf of Whole Grain Bread too.

Ok, I recently started watching Chopped, based on some recommendations of other members. Oh my, it makes me hungry sometimes!

But like Chopped, I always try to make an interesting dish using some (not all) of the CSA ingredients. So here is my dish for this box:

Whole Wheat Noodles and squash julienne, with saute of garlic scapes and chicken. garnished with a bit of Parmegiano Reggiano.

This dish was really good, and I think rather light and tasty. Next time, I will use even less noodles and more squash.

And I forgot to post one of last box's creation, so here it is:

Sauteed Kale with Mushrooms and Garlic

    Out of curiosity, how much do you pay for your CSA Box? (I pay mine 20 €, that's about $26, I have fruits too.)

    Your recipes seem yummy!
