I joined a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) for the first time. Summer deliveries just started and I’m so excited to have fresh healthy greens sent right to my doorstep from an organic farm. This website explains all the details and benefits of how a CSA works. In a nutshell, buyers sign-up for weekly boxes sent directly from the farm. No middle man and no time wilting on store shelves means the freshest veggies money can buy. You choose the package size based on how many people you’re feeding. So far I’ve gotten loads of greens: lettuce, chard, spinach and some mystery leaves I’m not sure about. Part of the fun is the surprise, although I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t awaiting juicy tomatoes and yummy summery zucchini.
Salad for a few
Swiss chard (I think)
Simple and delicious chard: saute chopped garlic in sesame oil over medium heat. Add leaves until they begin to wilt, and then splash a little soy sauce in the pan. Transfer to a plate and sprinkle gomasio on top.
Have you ever joined a CSA? What should I make with all of my newly acquired greens?
