CSA 2013 - What's in yours and what are you doing with it?

Rasam | Apr 19, 2013 08:51 AM

I live in Zone 7, so our CSAs have just started. This week's is already a challenge:

pea shoots
rutabagas
carrots
radishes (with greens)
kale
cucumber (hothouse)
tomato (hothouse).

The cucumber and tomato are easy.

The pea shoots had to be used up right away, so I quickly sauteed them with garlic and black pepper and peas, added them to alfredo-ish sauce, and had with pasta shells. Not bad at all. Pinching the tender leaves and tendrils off the tough stems was very tedious.

The radishes are tiny and red, and I think I can slice them for sandwiches.

Rutabagas I may use with carrots for this dal:

But that will not use all the rutabagas nor all the carrots. The weather is no longer suitable for oven roasting, so I am still thinking what to do. Any ideas?

The radish greens, kale, and spinach (from freezer) will likely make saag (may add paneer).

Has anyone else started getting CSA boxes? What is coming in them? What are you making?
