A refresher course on your CSA green and leafys!
A lot of the complaints I hear about having a CSA involve not know what the vegetables are and/or what to do with them. Here is a list of the vegetable I have gotten in my weekly CSA box and a brief description of how to use them.
We can start with the green and leafys
My general rule of thumb is ‘when in doubt, treat it like you would treat spinach.’ Obviously, as you get to know the taste and texture of the different vegetables, you figure out what is best eaten raw, steamed, baked, destemmed, chopped tiny, left whole, etc.
Baby Bak Choy (or full-sized)
Bak choy is part of the cabbage family. It is great steamed whole or chopped and tossed with garlic. The leaves can be used like a thick lettuce (spinach) and the stalks can be eaten like celery raw.
