CSA 2017 – Week 16

Leave a comment

A foggy, fall morning on the farm is beautiful …

What’s in the box?

Spinach, bok choy, lettuce, beans, zucchini, peppers, onions, garlic, (maybe tomatoes).

  • There are 3 kinds of greens in the box this week – spinach, bok choy & lettuce. That’s a lot of green! But they are all ready, & beautiful, & delicious, and we couldn’t decide which one to leave out – so we included them all. Bok choy seems to be a little unfamiliar to some of our CSA members. It is best stir-fried either on it’s own or with other vegetables. Actually, the box this week has all the makings for an amazing stir-fry – bok choy, beans, zucchini, peppers, onions & garlic. Save the lettuce, spinach & tomatoes for a salad.

There are many good stir-fry recipes out there, but our quick, easy, go-to recipe is as follows …

Stir-fry Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • salt & pepper
  • combine all ingredients and pour over stir-fried vegetables. Heat through till sauce thickens.
  • Serve and enjoy!

There are 2 weeks left in our CSA.
