For a year and a half, our family has been purchasing a “harvest box” from a local farm. The idea came from one of the diabetes educators with whom I work. I thought it sounded like a great way to force me to start cooking more vegetables. As we started receiving boxes, I quickly realized that my repertoire of recipes for veggies was pretty thin. I would spend hours trying to figure out how to cook many of the vegetables in the box. Some were vegetables I had never cooked with before. (Who ever heard of tot soi?) Others were vegetables I never bought, because I didn’t like them as a child. (Cauliflower, anyone?)
My purpose for this blog is to share the recipes I’ve found (and modified), good and bad. Each time we get a box, I will devote one post to the items in the box.
I encourage my readers to comment on any of my posts or recipes. I am by no means an expert cook, though I have definitely gotten a lot braver about deviating from a recipe since I started cooking different vegetables.
So, without further ado, here is the contents of this weeks harvest box.
[galobj viewid=2] That’s all for now. Feel free to comment or send me a note if you have any suggestions for recipes or the blog.
