Spring is the season for greens! In addition to lettuce, you’ll find your box has Pac Choi, Radicchio, Tatsoi, and Mustard Greens. If these are unfamiliar to you – don’t despair! The internet is full of tips and recipes, and we’ve got a few here. Spring greens are a tonic to the body following the winter – bursting with flavor and nutrition! One way to use them is to add them to whatever else you happen to be eating: spun in your smoothie (Tatsoi), burrowed into burritos (Pac Choi), or layered in your lasagne (Mustard Greens). One of my favorite ways to start the day includes sauteed greens with an egg on top.
Some people love the little bite Radicchio brings as an addition to their salads, others not so much. If you’re not a fan of assertive flavors – fear not! Cook’s Magazine suggests soaking shredded leaves for 30 minutes in water while you’re prepping the rest of your meal, et viola!
This weekend we made 10 minute Pac Choi which was an immediate hit – so delicious and instagram-worthy gorgeous! With just a few pantry ingredients, it’s a keeper for us, and hopefully for you!
Hi! Your array of greens are beautiful and would be delicious – do you do any sales to non-“contracted” folks? I would love to buy some greens. – Kristin
Thanks Kristin! We are CSA only, but you can for sure find these greens at any of our area Farmers’ Markets, and farm stands: https://www.communityfarmlandtrust.org/fresh-from-the-farm-guide-formerly-south-sound-farm-map.html
