2021 CSA Week 5 Recipes

Our peas are finally starting to produce so everyone gets a pint peas of this week.  They are just picked, so make sure you eat them as quick as possible to experience the sweetest pea possible. We have a wonderful stir fry recipe if you are looking for some inspiration. The rain is becoming too much of a good thing, and some of our plants and fields are becoming water-logged, so we’re hoping to have some dry sunny days in the future so we can get back to a more desirable moisture content in the soil with happy, perky plants. We hope you enjoy the variety this week, and thank you for supporting our farm!

To make Caesar Dressing- combine 2 oz grated Parmesan, 2 cloves garlic, 1 tbsp Dijon mustard, 1 1/2 tsp white wine vinegar, 1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce, 6 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper. 

To make croutons- toast 1 baguette. Cut into 1/2 inch cubes, then toss with olive oil and toast in the oven at 375F for 5 minutes. 








spinach phyllo pie 

To make the filling: In a mixing bowl, add all of the spinach, 1 oz fresh parsley chopped, 2 of the red onions finely diced, 1 clove of garlic minced, 2 Tbsp olive oil, 2 eggs, 5 oz crumbled feta cheese, pepper to taste. Stir until all is well-combined.

Unroll the phyllo (fillo) sheets and place them between two slightly damp kitchen cloths.
Prepare a 5" X 5" baking dish. Brush the bottom and sides of the dish with olive oil.

To assemble the spinach pie: Line the baking dish with two sheets of phyllo (fillo) letting them cover the sides of the dish. Brush with olive oil. Add two more sheets in the same manner, and brush them with olive oil. Repeat until two-thirds of the phyllo (fillo) is used up.
Now, evenly spread the spinach and feta filling over the phyllo (fillo) crust. Top with two more sheets, and brush with olive oil.

Continue to layer the phyllo (fillo) sheets, two-at-a-time, brushing with olive oil, until you have used up all the sheets. Brush the very top layer with olive oil, and sprinkle with just a few drops of water.

Fold the flaps or excess from the sides, you can crumble them a little. Brush the folded sides well with olive oil. Cut spinach pie ONLY PART-WAY through into squares, or leave the cutting to later.

Bake in the 325 degrees F heated-oven for 1 hour, or until the phyllo (fillo) crust is crisp and golden brown. Remove from the oven. Finish cutting into squares and serve. Enjoy!
