The CSA green onions can substituted for the “sliced onion” and add chopped fresh cilantro as a nice addition when tossing the carrots and lettuces together.

 

Anna’s CSA Tips & Recipes

TASTE’s very own Catering Sales Manger, Anna Bazzi, will be taking part in this Summer’s CSA drop off and after reviewing the list of items for the first drop-off today, pulled a few recipe options that she’s already preparing for:

“I am looking forward to making a bok choy stir fry http://www.saveur.com/article/Recipes/Stir-Fried-Mushrooms-and-Bok-Choy-Donggu-Pei-Shucai

Using the carrots in my favorite morning glory muffin recipe (dairy free!) http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/1470

And freezing the strawberries for smoothies.  I do frozen strawberry, frozen banana, skim milk, a dash of vanilla & a dollop of strawberry jam.  It tastes like a decadent milk shake but is virtually fat free. ”

Thanks, Anna! Can’t wait to see what’s in next week’s drop off!

    I’m a member of this CSA too, isn’t it great? I love forcing myself to branch out from my usual veggies; thanks for the recipes, hope you post some every week!
