WHAT I’M DOING WITH THE SHARE PRODUCE

My personal CSA “box” challenge for this week:

OREGANO: with such a bounty of oregano, I am going to freeze half of it and and dehydrate the other half.  To freeze, fill ice cube tray wells 2/3 full with herbs, pour in extra virgin olive oil to cover, freeze over night, then remove to freezer bags and store in the freezer.
SPINACH:  A salad, of course, a soup, and a smoothie
KALE: Ah! I do love kale. There isn’t really that much, so I will probably make massaged marinated kale, and throw in some of kohlrabi leaves for good measure.
SUGAR SNAP PEAS : I’ll just have these for a snack. They are already in my bag to go to work today.
 KOHLRABI: I’m going to make kohlrabi ravioli with jalapeno smoked cheeze – I’ll just slice the kohlrabi on the mandoline, add a dab of the cheeze, fold over, and pop in my mouth.
GARLIC SCAPES: I’ll finely chop some and add them to the kale, then make a little garlic scape pesto with some of them, to eat over zucchini “pasta”.
RHUBARB: I know I’ll be making a strawberry/rhubarb smoothie or two, and I will likely halve the strawberry/rhubarb pie recipe

STRAWBERRY/RHUBARB SMOOTHIE

Last night, I was feeling lazy, and did not want to go to great lengths to prepare dinner, so I just capped all of the strawberries in my CSA share and then added cashews, and three stalks of rhubarb and 16 oz. of water, blended it all, and drank it down.

Yumm!

STRAWBERRY/RHUBARB SMOOTHIE

2 C strawberries

1 C rhubarb, chopped

1 C cashews

12-16 oz water (to taste)

optional: add agave syrup or other sweetener of choice to taste

Process in VitaMix until smooth.

NOTE: I did not add any sweetener, but you might like to.  It comes out sort of bland and tart at the same time.
