Harvest Bounty Round 2

On Saturday, after we brought Bella home from the shelter, we picked up our second share from Gretta and Shared Harvest CSA. You can see the beautiful array of vegetables. Lots of different colors, flavors, and textures.

This time, here’s what we have to work with: leeks, napa cabbage, Brussels sprouts, salad turnips, spinach, kale, radishes, lettuce, escarole, parsnips, parsley, broccoli, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, white potatoes, carrots, rutabagas, onions, garlic and two pounds of locally grown red kidney beans.

The next month looks like it will be filled with excellent cooking and eating. I’m still trying to figure out where to start.

  1. Your current batch of vegetables looks wonderful, so I have a idea as to where you should start…..

    I highly recommend the “Two Bean & Kale” soup from the October 2009 issue of Cooking Light, I made it last week and it was excellent. It vanished quickly.

    You have the Kale and you could subsitute your red kidney beans for the black beans. It is going to become a regular fall/winter soup out of my kitchen.

    I liked that issue of Cooking Light, there were a number of interesting recipes that I have yet to try, particularly those from Blackberry Farm. I think we can change that over Thanksgiving.

    This week’s soup recipe is from the Sonoma Diet cookbook “Beef Barley” – another really good one!

    A bowlful of happiness.
