This Week's Tip: A Recipe Suggestion from CSA Member Cathy
Earlier this week on the blog, Cathy left us a comment about how she used some of last week's produce. Here's what Cathy had to say:
I chopped some garlic scapes, hakurei turnips (sliced), turnip greens, collard greens, arugula. In a medium pan, I sauteed the scapes and turnips for a few minutes, then added the greens. I splashed everything with some soy sauce and rice vinegar and cooked for a few more minutes. Towards the end, I added some chickpeas and raisins, which helped to balance the meal, and a little sesame oil, for a little extra flavor.
Thank you, Cathy!
