It's been a couple busy weeks, including a trip to Long Island for a wedding, finishing grad school, etc. Within that time frame, we did manage to use some of our CSA bounty. So, before we go pick up today's haul, here's a brief recap:
Kale (selected over chard and collards for a change of pace)
What We Cooked:
Quinoa with Caramelized Leeks
I think this was a variation from the Bittman book. Along with the leeks, I also roasted some beets
we had leftover from the previous week and added those on top. I though
the roasted beets were quite tasty! (Robertus fessed up that he is not
so fond of beets but that it shouldn't stop me from cooking them.)
Bonus: This used up one of the two bulk bags of quinoa that we'd had
sitting around for a few months.
Veggie Stir-Fry with Tofu
kale, kohlrabi, carrots, onion, and peppers (those weren't from the CSA).
Not the most exciting dish, but pretty tasty! I didn't mind the
kohlrabi as much in this form as when I'd had them before, maybe because
I'm used to eating broccoli in stir fry.
This was just a lunch of lettuce, cucumber, a bit of shredded cheddar cheese, and country dijon mustard in a tortilla. Simple, but good.
