The kids and I love going to pick up our CSA share. We don’t know what we will get until we arrive and it kind of feels like opening up a treasure box. Well, we just picked up our Whole Foods CSA Week 4 and here’s what we got….
This post was created in partnership with Whole Foods. I am participating in a 10 week CSA in exchange for sharing my experiences and/or recipes I create. All opinions are my own.
Whole Foods CSA Week 4
- Sliced white mushrooms
- Green kale
- Tri-berry jam
- Jersey tomatoes
- Bulls’ blood beets
- 2 poblano peppers
- 6 ears corn
- Red cabbage
What are we making?
Mushrooms – I’ve been planning to make cream of mushroom soup for a few weeks now. This is the perfect time. We all love homemade cream of mushroom soup and my recipe is gluten-free. We might make Mushroom Broccoli Tuna Quinoa with it.
Eggplant – I love baba ghanoush but haven’t quite perfected a recipe yet. Okay, my recipe is quite far from perfected. I am going to work on it with this eggplant because baba ghanoush is a perfect lunchtime option. I like to eat it with hummus and pita.
Green kale – Kale Caesar! No, that is not a typo. I love kale in my Caesar salad. I just might make some parmesan crisps to go with it. This will be a good dinner when we don’t feel like cooking – Garlic Chicken and Apple Caesar Salad with kale. We could also make a salad with mixed greens, kale, red bell peppers, quinoa, cheddar, and balsamic dressing.
Tri berry jam – aside from jam and toast, I think I am going to turn this jam into a fruit tart. Mmm, mango berry tarts? Stay tuned!
Bull’s blood beets – Not going to lie, it sounds kind of gross with the word blood in it but I do love beets. I am planning to roast these with just a bit of pepper and vulcan fire salt. Spicy roasted beets? It’s gotta be good, right?
Peaches – Well, I would have made a peach berry tart but my family already claimed these for eating.
Jersey tomatoes – a little salt, a little pepper, and a splash of balsamic vinegar. That’s all, she wrote.
Poblano peppers – roasted poblano, corn, and black bean salsa is sounding pretty good right now. I am going to play around until I find the perfect combination then share the recipe with you.
Red cabbage – My husband has been wanting me to make some of this zesty lime coleslaw again. Happy to oblige! This red cabbage will be perfect. If you are looking for a zippy slaw that isn’t mayo or cream based, you need to try this recipe.
