This Weeks Share Includes:
Carrots, Sweet Onion, Romaine Lettuce, Strawberries, Celery, Fennel, Red Russian Kale, & Red Cabbage.
I decided to stop overloading my weekly blogs with repetitive info about all the vegetables we know and love. Don’t worry.. I will revisit them from time to time but let’s be honest folks, everyone knows what to do with Onions, Carrots, Strawberries and Lettuce. Instead i decided to focus a little more on new vegetables of the season as well as finding recipes that incorporate several of the ingredients in your box, to ensure you are eating your vegetables like good boys and girls.
Celery- New this season, Yay-Add a little CRUNCH to your life. I love adding celery to anything that needs a little bit of texture; Tunafish salad, Chicken salad and my Favorite Waldorf Salad.
Fennel- This Licorice flavored vegetable is great chopped and sauteed in a hot pan with some lemon, olive oil, and S & P. Been there, done that and want to try something new?? Use the fennel bulb as well as the sweet onions in your share in this delicious Fennel & Onion Gratin.
Red Russian Kale & Red Cabbage Slaw.<—- Healthy and delicious, try adding carrots.
