Vegetables for the Week

See that? Yeah, that pile of vegetables that looks like the produce section of your neighborhood market? Yes, those are the vegetables we must eat by Wednesday at 5:00 when our next batch of vegetables arise. It consists of onions, green onions, rosemary, beets, lots and lots of carrots, lots and lots and lots of turnips, iceberg lettuce, romaine lettuce, turnip tops, carrot tops, chard, dandelion greens, collards, kale, rhubarb, radishes, lots of lemons, lots of tangerines, basil, tarragon, parsley, oregano, 2 poblanos, and a potato.

Let's do this thing! Let's eat vegetables!! (Any suggestions?)

  1. Argh, I typed a whole big comment and it ate it!!! :(

    Attempt to re-type...
    1) Freeze whatever you can't use up in time. You can look up how to freeze most veggies online. Don't feel bad about throwing out the carrot tops and turnip tops, most people do.

    2) Add greens to any stir-fry, pasta sauce, etc.

    3) Salad with the iceberg, romaine, carrots, radishes, and herbs?

    4) Make tsimmes with the root veggies (carrots, beets, turnips) and add juice from the tangerines

    5) Here are a couple random recipes. I haven't tried the radish ones but the rhubarb compote is good for chicken, fish, etc.
