We blasted our way through our first Farm Fresh box. I even ate the lettuce (although, it was just as a snack – lettuce leaves and ginger dressing). Since we made it through with lots of time to spare, we decided to get a bigger box this week. Turns out we eat a lot more vegetables than I thought!
This week’s box has a lot more greenery in it. I look forward to the challenge of using it all.
Here’s what we got:
4 Granny Smith Apples (we’ll just eat these as snacks, although one might end up in a salad.)
2 Navel Oranges (ditto as the apples)
4 Minneola Tangelos (yum.)
1 Eureka Lemon
2 Cara Cara Oranges
1 bunch of Broccoli
1 bunch of Chard
1 bunch of Collard Greens
1 bunch of Fennel
1 bunch of Leaf Lettuce
1 bunch of Celery
1 lb of Yellow Onions (aka 2 onions)
1 lb of Russian Banana Potatoes
I made this tasty recipe last week with the collard greens that my friend sent me. I served them with a side of quinoa and a poached egg. But, I think I’ll try a different recipe this week. Any suggestions?
The lovely people at Farm Fresh included a couple of recipes with this week’s box. One for Sauteed Chard, Stems and all! and another for Fennel Orange Salad. Could be interesting. Definitely a place to start!
