I forgot to take a picture, but I think we might be the only people who took Matt’s box in an Asian direction tonight, a fact that might make the idea worth mentioning briefly.
We did a pretty simple chicken stir fry, with garlic scapes, snow peas, and turnips from Matt. The latter ingredient might seem strange, but as I talked to him, I considered using them in place of water chestnuts. He was very enthusiastic about the idea, and I think it worked pretty well. The turnips don’t have a lot of flavor in general, but they did add a nice crunch. We also picked up carrots, broccoli, and bell peppers. I included some other typical flavors – ginger, soy, and onion. All served over Asian noodles.
It was simple and yummy and used at least a few of our CSA ingredients! Later tonight for dessert, we’ll be having lemon bread with fresh strawberries. Such good summer eating.
Great to see some of you at the market today and looking forward to hearing about your dinner plans.
My favorite part was we also had lo-mein noodles…..superb!
Oooh I love lo main noodles too! I will try stir frying the rest of the turnips, too. They seem too fresh and lovely to roast!
Sorry I spelled “mein” wrong. I need that dictionary now!
You’re so adorable!
That sounds so good. I didn’t get any turnips , I got beets. But I love to roast those. I agree, fun seeing you all at the market!
That sounds great! I love the idea of using the garlic scapes and turnips in a stir fry. Yum!
