This week we included honeynut squash, which is a newer variety that has a richer, nutier taste than regular butternut. Your shares contain a mix of peppers including poblano, which has a mild, smokey heat, and a mix of green large sweet peppers. We've been waiting patiently for our pepper plants to start yielding more, and they're begining to reward us, so we'll be including a variety of peppers from now through the end of the season. We're feeling great about this temperature shift, though we still have a seedling house full of plants we need to get into the ground over the next few weeks, so we still have a lot of work ahead of us. We hope you enjoy the vegetables, have a great week!
Garlicy Sauteed Broccoli Greens
Roughly chop 1 bunch of broccoli greens, finely chopping stems, and cutting florets and greens into 1 inch segments. Cut 1 pint of yellow wax beans into 1 inch segments. Mince 2-3 cloves garlic.
Heat 2 Tbsp cooking oil over medium high heat in a skillet. Add garlic and saute for 3 minutes, then add broccoli stems and beans and saute another 3 minutes. Add greens and florets and saute another 2 minutes. Add 2 cups chicken stock and salt as needed. Cook for 15 minutes, or until most of the stock has reduced.
Chioggia Beet Carpaccio
With a sharp knife or mandolin slice the 2 chioggia beets into paper thin rounds. Toss beet slices with 2-3 Tbsp olive oil in a bowl or container and let sit until ready to serve. Arrange beet slices on plate and squirt with 1-2 Tbsp lemon juice. Sprinkle with 1 finely chopped shallot, 2 Tbsp finely chopped chives, salt & pepper.
Serve with extra olive oil.
Rinse and roughly chop lettuce mix, then dress with additional fixings. To make dressing whisk together: 3 tablespoons olive oil, 1 garlic clove, minced 1 tsp red wine vinegar,1 tsp Dijon mustard, 1/2 tsp fine sea salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper.
