Given the devastating freeze that afflicted South Texas last week, I wasn’t hopeful that our Greenling Local Box would contain too many goodies. Luckily for us, I was mistaken! Though I expect that some of these items may change due to unpredictable quantities, I still wanted to make a plan for the things we would get.
We’re supposed to get bok choy and radishes from My Father’s Farm, apples from Top of Texas, tangerines from Orange Blossom, collard greens from Naegelin, Louisiana spring shallots and green leaf lettuce from Acadian, broccoli microgreens from Bella Verdi, and purple turnips from Lundgren.
So I’m making:
- Radish and goat cheese raita (thinking this would be a nice dip for this weekend’s playoff games)
- Winter fruit salad
- Collards with farro
- Green salad
- Penne with cilantro pesto
- Bok choy with garlic and baby shrimp
- Dumplings (made with spring shallots) with soy and sesame-dressed microgreens
