We are new to the Southside CSA and enjoying it immensely. We are trying to eat especially healthy as I’m expecting our first baby in October. Here are two recipes we made from our produce this week.

Butternut Squash Puree!!
One of our fab member’s Naomi wrote this up last season. We had been slacking over at Southside CSA headquarters in getting this posted last season and decided to wait until it was Winter season again. As we are knee deep into the season and have received the puree in both Dec & Jan distributions, we decided it would be a great time to share her tips!
Just because winter share is over doesn’t mean you don’t have three blocks of squash puree in your freezer. This year, I decided I would lower my intake of squash soup and do some more caloric things with my squash blocks. Here a few squash recipes I tried that will help you get through the tedious warm spring days and remember that the cold dark days of winter are right around the corner. Enjoy.
Squash Puree Risotto
PLEASE NOTE: The squash puree we get is a little more watery than puree you’d make yourself so unless you really love baby food, add the squash puree when the rice is still al dente. You’ll need a little less stock. Also, if you don’t have leeks, use onions. They are easier to clean anyway – not that I’ve ever rinsed leeks three times. And vegetable stock can be substituted for chicken stock.

This is our 4th year being a part of the great Southside CSA. We usually do a full veggie and egg share, but after witnessing the insane berry bounty last year, we decided to go for the Full Monty Deluxe.
I cook 1-3 meals for us every day, so everything is usually eaten by my husband and I with some small dinner parties thrown in. We eat mainly vegetarian but not exclusively.
This weeks share was 1 pound of fresh green peas, 4 quarts (!) of strawberries and a dozen eggs.
