diary of a CSA box

I have some fun cooking experiments coming in the next week or so. The big ol' bag of veggies that I got from a local CSA included:

  • adorable tiny potatoes
  • a small bunch of young Nantes carrots
  • six fennel stalks and bulbs - big ones
  • spinach
  • green garlic (smells fabulous)
  • brussels sprouts
  • broccoli rabe (I think)
  • sunflower sprouts
  • escarole
  • dandelion greens
  • rapini greens
  • savoy cabbage

First up is are the fennel - not my favorite vegetable but I found a recipe using copious amounts of butter and parmesan. Brussels sprouts - easy. Pan fry with olive oil, garlic and pinenuts, toss over pasta or brown rice. However...sunflower sprouts and escarole? That'll take some research.
