Happy snow day everyone! It feels officially like winter now. Luckily all of our plants are safely tucked away in our high tunnels, safe from the snow. And since the tunnels have pitched roofs, the snow slides right off and we don't have to worry about them caving in. Here are some cozy recipes to accompany your snow day!
What We're Eating
White Bean and Mustard Green Soup
My mom made this simple, nutritous soup with escarole when I was growing up, but this week we tried it with mustard greens and it was delicious! This can easily be made vegetarian, and is best served with crusty bread. (Recipe from my memory and adapted from Bon Appetit.)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
1 large carrot, cut into small dice
5 large garlic cloves, peeled, flattened
3 cups (packed) 1-inch pieces mustard greens (about 1 pound of stir fry mix)
4 cups (or more) chicken or vegetable stock
3 1/4 cups cooked Great Northern beans or two 15-ounce cans cannellini (white kidney beans), rinsed, drained
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium-low heat. Add onion, carrot and garlic and sauté until onion is golden and tender, about 7 minutes. Add 4 cups broth and beans and bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer about 20 minutes. Thin with more broth, if desired. Add stir fry mix and cook until slightly wilted. Season soup to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve.
Here's a recipe for pickled purple daikon radish that sounds delish! We love adding radishes to any plate for fire and pepper-i-ness. Pickled radishes bring the added elements of sour and tart, and we love adding the flavor packed delights to salads, sandwiches, soups, and grain bowls.
We wanted to give you a heads up that there will be no CSA delivery on Wednesday December 27th because we'll be travelling for the holidays.
Also, we've had a couple of folks not complete the ordering process for their shares. There are a frustrating number of steps in the process, and we hope to offer a more streamlined ordering process in the future! For now, when ordering, make sure that you get to the screen with the blue button that says "Complete Checkout."
Next, you'll get to a screen that says "You were checked out successfully," and you'll receive an email confirming your order. If you don't get an email confirmation, that means we didn't receive your order. Feel free to shoot us an email or give us a call if you're having any trouble with the system.
