At the same time we're really excited to see summer crops get growing. I just saw blossoms on cucumber and zucchini plants a few days ago, so I know they are just around the corner. cherry tomatoes are blossoming too. I also get the feel that members also can't wait for these summer crops to appear. Sure, a spring box full is greens is OK, but a summer box with some substantial heft is much appreciated.
In the box:
- Green Onions
- Green Leaf Lettuce
- Red Lettuce
- Bok Choy: See video below for recipe
- Spinach: Definitely not as pretty as I'd like after last week's hail.
- Garlic Scapes: Green curled things...these are the tops of the hardneck garlic. Chop or mince and use where ever you'd use garlic. It's a bit more mild than garlic cloves.
- Westlander Kale: Big bunch with blue band. This could also be used in a frittata
- Snap Peas: Yes, you eat the pod.
Lida Farm Frittata
- 6 eggs
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- About 2 cups of Bok Choy, Swiss Chard, Garlic Scapes, Spinach
Basic Directions: Preheat oven to 350. Chop veggie or mix of veggies of your choice and saute in frying pan over medium heat until crisp-tender or wilted. Beat 6 eggs together with Parmesan in bowl. Add veggies to mix and add to another ovenproof frying pan over medium-low heat. Drop temperature to low and let cook undistubed for 5-10 minutes until bottom is firm. Next, transfer frying pan to oven and bake until top is dry/not runny. You can garnish with parsley or green onions.
