First 2011 CSA Box

Green Onion

An new season of CSA (Community Shared Agriculture) boxes has just begun. We get a box full of organic veggies every two weeks, straight from a local farmer. This week was our first box of 2011 and included:
– Asparagus
– Asian greens mix
– Baby Broccoli
– Collard Greens
– Green Garlic
– Parsnips
– Pea Vine
– Radishes
– Spinach
– Thyme
– Tsoi-Sim
– Yellow Potatoes

The trickiest items in the box are the Asian greens and the Tsoi-Sim, which is a specific type of Asian green. The CSA suggests a stir-fry but that seems a little boring. According to this Saveur article, pea shoots (vine) are also part of the Asian mix.

Maybe I will try this Grilled Tofu and Sauteed Asian Greens recipe from Epicurious. Any other suggestions for creative ways to prepare these greens?

  1. First off, let me say that our CSA pick up isn’t until the end of the month. Why are we always the last? Done bit$#ing.

    We get a lot of Asian Greens too in our share. I’m trying to think what I did with them because I didn’t do anything fancy (or follow a recipe). I think I just sauteed them and put them in a quesadilla (I was a on a quesadilla kick last summer).
