What's in CSA box #5

We are on a flex plan with our CSA, which means we can choose which weeks we want a box, so because we were on vacation last week we had three weeks between deliveries instead of two. Our veggie drawers were looking pretty bare.
What's in CSA box #5

Fennel - One of these I'll roast with the beets for a salad. The other may be cooked with onions to go on a steak.

Red Beets - Oh, do I love beets. This is our first batch & candy striped & golden are yet to come.

Leaf Lettuce - For salads & on sandwiches

Cauliflower - I think this will be BBQed as a side dish with Indian BBQ Sauce.

Red Kale - Its too warm to use this in our favorite kale soup so I'll have to find a good summer use.

Red Kohlrabi - Probably will go in a slaw.

Purple Scallions - I might cook these up with the fennel.

Sugar Snap Peas - I think these will just get steamed tonight & eaten as a side dish

Strawberries - These are the last local strawberries of the season. Perhaps another shortcake is in order.

Fresh Garlic - We use garlic in a lot of cooking so this will be easy to use.

make chips with your kale! wash and dry 1/2 bunch of kale. trim tough stems and cut into 2 inch pieces. Toss with some oil (olive, sesame, whatever), salt, pepper and some nutritional yeast if you have it. then lay them all out on parchment paper or a silpat and bake at 35 for 10-15 min. Delicious and healthy alternative to one of my favorite summertime snacks: potato chips.
