This week we got butternut squash, potatoes, red onions, carrots, kale, mustard greens, cilantro, parsley, popping corn, apple and apple cider. We have a Full Monty share; We eat mostly vegan and usually have no problem getting through our fruit and vegetables each week. This is our 5th year in the CSA, so by now there are very few surprises. We have our favorite recipes for each vegetable that we return to each year.
With butternut squash, we pretty much always make a butternut squash and chickpea curry from Madhur Jaffrey’s wonderful “World Vegetarian” cookbook. Continue reading

Every Monday night, the three of us look forward to a kitchen full of locally grown vegetables from MimoMex farm. It was important to us to not only eat healthier, but to get involved in our community and support our local farms. It is always a surprise to see what we will be taking home that evening, looking forward to creating dishes using fresh and seasonal produce. To help store our vegetables, we store most items in the fruit and vegetable drawers in our refrigerator, using plastic onion and tomato savers and GreenBags that help preserve the freshness and prolong the life of our herbs and leafy greens.
With this week’s September 30th CSA share from MimoMex farm, Alison, Shaina, and Kate, aka Coffee & Donuts (more on our share name later…) used this week’s items to highlight the basket’s Mexican flavors, using the corn, cilantro, red onion, and radishes to create chicken corn enchiladas with homemade green sauce! A green enchilada sauce is hard to come by in supermarkets, so we decided to make our own! To make this super easy medium spiced green enchilada sauce, we used this week’s cilantro and red onion, and previous week’s garlic, green bell peppers, jalapenos, and one habanero pepper. We found a good base recipe online, and tweaked it to make it slightly spicier.

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.

With a crazy, busy week ahead of us we picked up our CSA share on Monday night and immediately got down to procrastinating about what we were going to make this week. Our time was going to be pretty limited, so we decided to try to combine as many ingredients as we could into two large meals, which would provide us with ample leftovers for the week. Here is what we got this week:
1 dozen eggs
4 lbs peaches
4 ears of corn
1 bunch of papalo
1 bunch of chard
3 green peppers
1/2 lb cherry tomatoes
1/2 lb tomatillos
1 lb purple potatoes
1/2 lb serrano peppers
So on to the first meal!
