Check This Out!

Supercook is a pretty cool website where you can punch in the ingredients you have and up pops a recipe! What do you suppose comes up for a search with Jerusalem Artichokes? Quite a bit, actually...

What I like to do with Cabbage

Tonight I plan to duplicate a yummy cabbage dish that I made last week. It'll go something like this:

chop up about 1/4 of a cabbage & 2 or 3 carrots & some garlic
heat about 2 tbsp of olive oil in frying pan, and add the vegetables when oil is quite hot along with a bit of sea salt, some curry powder & red chili flakes
this needs to be cooked on quite high heat for 7-10 minutes, depending on how 'cooked' you like your cabbage, we like the cabbage nicely browned to bring out its sweetness
after a couple of minutes cooking things seem to need a bit of moisture, so I add a shot of soy sauce, sometimes a bit of water too
when it is almost done add some sesame oil, more salt & pepper

Some reading...

This is not a recipe post but a collection of links about CSA's that I have saved.

My name is Lorrie & if you collect your share at the Grainery then you have met me. I am thrilled to be involved with Taproot, as a shareholder & by helping Patricia at the Grainery pickup. I have the impression from reading comments & from listening to shareholders on Tuesdays, that some of you are finding the CSA an enjoyable adventure & others are finding it a bit challenging. I will post some recipes tomorrow, after I find out what's in this week's basket.



Send in via email to me.

I don't know how often I'll post a recipe, but last night I finally
used the fingerling potatoes and parsnips! It was a busy week last
week I and hadn't had a chance to cook much. I took the potatoes,
scrubbed and oiled them and roasted them as you had suggested, but I
added the two parsnips from the previous weeks, as well as seasonings.
Then I saved half the batch as is (I'm thinking hash on the weekend),
and mashed the rest (skins and all) with some sour cream and green
onions. It was terrific, love those little taters!

Recipes for the Bean Sprouts

Minga who grows the sprouts suggested these recipes:

Stir Fry - add for the last 10 minutes of cooking
Vegetables Soup - add for the final 10 minutes of cooking
Vegetable Curry - saute onion, garlic, potatoes, carrots. Cover with water and seasoning. Simmer for 15 minutes or so. Add coconut milk, crunchy bean mix, cilantro, spinach (or red leaf kale) for last 10 minutes of cooking. Top with fresh cilantro. For curry seasoning I use Pataks mild curry paste.
