Basket of Life Farm CSA Box #3

Good evening, all!  I just came back from picking up my CSA box at Basket of Life farm, and it looked so good that I couldn’t wait to share it.

Quite a haul this week – Kale, lettuce, spring onions, green onions, GIGANTIC beets, zucchini, yellow zucchini, yellow squash, garlic and eggs!

All the oniony goodness was making my car smell yummy on the way home.  Last week, I cut the spring onions in half and just grilled them with some olive oil, salt and pepper – amazing!  I’ll probably do the same this week.   The beets are the wild card for me; I’ve never cooked them before.  But I know that Brian loves roasted beets, so I’ll give it a shot.

I hope all of you getting your boxes tomorrow are as lucky!  Now, I just have to go cook something…

    WOW! That haul looks spectacular! I will definitely grill green onions this week. Here is how I roast beets:
    Wash and cut off the ends. Wrap in foil with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake for an hour to an hour and a half at 350 degrees. Those beets are big and you want them completely tender. Or I do, anyway! Peel and eat then or slice cold on a salad.

    Great haul! Roasted beets are great, but if it’s summer where you are, you can grate them raw and add them to a salad. They will be sweet tasting and the colour is wonderful.

    I have kale coming up in my CSA box this week. Not sure what I’ll do with them since I don’t think my husband will like it.

      Great idea with the beets! I ended up pickling them this time, but I’ll remember that if/when I get some more. I don’t have any great kale recipes on hand, but it’s good in soups if your hubby would like that. Thanks for commenting!
