Today’s corresponding photos are for further development on previous recipe suggestions for your CSA goods. The photos above refer back to ideas for spring rolls; the third image below right is courtesy of lavatnus.blogspot.com and is a diagram on how to fold your rice paper wrap into a spring roll.  Ingredients can be anything you like to flavor your roll, but was inspired to bring this recipe up again with this week’s mixed field greens, arugula, microgreens, papaya and turmeric in the offering. Consider dressings or dips that would complement your ingredients chosen such as soy sauce, fish sauce, plum paste, vinegars or pickles,  or even a barbeque sauce. Rice paper wraps are simple to use and very fast to prepare. Line up chopped mixed greens, mixed microgreens and arugula, skinned and sliced papaya with an eye on length of your rice paper, and grated turmeric, along with any other fillings you may like such as beef strips, shrimp, etc. Once you have your filling selections lined up, it’s time to wrap then up. I use a large frying pan in which I heat up about an inch and a half of water to just about too hot to handle and then turn the flame off. Gently I guide the rice paper into the water at a very shallow angle, moving it though the bath in about 10 seconds. Then it is laid out and the filling placed, and the wrap is closed up. (See diagram) The metal lunch box came from C’ville Oriental.   

To your health and pleasure always. Enjoy! <3

Sorrel Pesto for The last fall CSA for 2017 and preparing for the Winter CSA starting next weekend! It is that time of year where the refrigerator is filled with leftovers and there are yet a few more parties to host or attend, so try some of our most nutritious and flavorful microgreens, as they are a super food that saves space and time, besides landing a fabulous presentation. The popular herbs included can make bartending for your friends and family even more fun and delicious. Try mudddling (pressing and crushing to release aroma) an herb like thyme below your ice and top with alcohol or juice.  To your health and your pleasure, always, leslie

2017 CSA Fall December 23rd

2017 CSA Fall December 23rd

  • Arugula 10×10
  • Mixed Salad 10×10
  • Chervil
  • Parsley
  • Dill
  • Basil Pesto *
  • Red Sorrel Pesto*
  • Citrus Selection
  • Papaya
  • Ginger*
  • Turmeric*

And to top that off, papaya, turmeric and ginger..for fresh flavor and energy to face the chill of winter. Chervil I like to use fresh with veggies and salad as I find a bit of pain relief in its sweet aroma. Parsley, another nutrition rich green, can help relieve bloating, may fight kidney stones, gallbladder, and urinary tract infections. And it has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial characteristics.

We made a Red Sorrel Pesto, among other flavors, in hopes to send you home with a red and a green version to use at your leisure. These store easily in the freezer, just let the container sit out for about 20 minutes during recipe prep and the outer edge with defrost making it easy to scrape a tablespoon or 2 out. Then the container can be popped back into the freezer. Woot! To your health and your pleasure, always, Leslie
