surrealestate: (Sentient Broccoli)
[personal profile] surrealestate
Sometimes I am a serious veggie magnet. Yesterday was one of those days.

This was my regular farm share, which is a lot of stuff.

Week 3

  • 2 bunches Kohlrabi (with greens)
  • 2 lbs Green Beans
  • 2 bunches Red Spring Onions (with tops)
  • 2 bunches Yellow Carrots
  • 4 Zucchini
  • 2 bunches Radishes
  • 2 bags mixed Baby Lettuce
  • 2 bunches Broccoli
    = 20 lbs

In addition to all of that, I also ended up with:

  • 1 bag Baby Spinach
  • 1 bag Basil
  • 2 bunches Harukei Turnips
  • 1 head Red Leaf Lettuce
  • 1 bunch Oregano
  • 1 bunch Kale
  • 1 bunch Rainbow Chard
  • 1 bunch curly Parsley
  • 1 bunch flat Parsley
  • 1 bunch Kohlrabi (with greens)
  • 1 bunch Kohlrabi greens (without kohlrabi)
  • 2 lbs Garlic Scapes (which is, ftr, a whole lot of garlic scapes)

I also have a bread share which I keep forgetting to mention. This week's loaf was a light rye.

Since something needed to be done, last night I finally made my first batch of Greens & Peanut Stew of the season, using up the remaining greens from last week as well as this week’s kale and some of the kohlrabi greens. Which was a lot but still leaves a lot. Also prepped all the bagged lettuce along with spinach for salad.

I have all the fixings for kimchi except the cabbage. Pondering whether I should look for some Napa at the farmers markets Wednesday or just do something else with this stuff. Seems kind of absurd to go and buy more veggies under the circumstances. Maybe [ profile] beowabbit will come over and I can give him the radishes.

What's the recipe you use for your greens & peanut stew, and does your larger-small one eat it?

Here is it:

He does sometimes and not other times, but that's the case with most things. Heck, tonight he decided he didn't want homemade pizza, which he usually devours. :)

Made this yesterday, modifying a bit because I'm me. (I used a poblano pepper as the only "heat," and stopped counting after 12T of peanut butter.) A definite success. Thank you!

You're very welcome! Glad it worked out. As you can probably gather from the recipe-as-written, I modify it all the time myself.
