Recipes for This Week: Cabbage, Greens and Swiss Chard


Here are a few recommended recipes from CSA members that I received over the last week. If you have a recipe to recommend, or want to submit a photo, email me anytime. (As an aside, photos don't have to be professional. The one above is one that I snapped on my phone and then doctored with an app called Instagram).  

And now, here are some ideas for Cabbage, Greens and Chard.  

Cabbage Ideas...

Angela made and loved this recipe for Sweet and Spicy Pork and Napa Cabbage Stir Fry with Spicy Noodles that she found at She substituted fish for the pork, but also believes that it would be a great vegetarian dish, too. 

Laura recommends two Cabbage recipes: Stuffed Cabbage from Smitten Kitchen and a Chinese Cabbage Salad that she says is great. 

Ideas for Greens...

Deborah, on our Facebook page, recommends this recipe for Southern-Style Crock Pot Greens. It can use collard or turnip greens (or both).  

Remember, that the greens on our turnips are edible, as are the greens on your radishes

Ideas for Swiss Chard...

Angela writes both a recipe and a book recommendation. I read the book, too, and absolutely loved it:

"This is a recipe from the book Animal Vegetable Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver.  Her family ate a whole year using essentially only products from their farm or produced locally.  They provided recipes for seasonal vegetables throughout the year in the book and provide them on their website.  This one [for Swiss Chard] is called Eggs in a Nest and is a tasty way to use Swiss chard, though I use sun-dried tomatoes in oil instead of dried ones."


Happy cooking!
