Tender pea shoots are featured in this week’s box – another harbinger of spring! They’re delicious just tossed in a salad or used as a veggie burger topping, but I’m including an Asian-style recipe using them for the more adventurous.
Pea Shoots – Animal Farm
Green or Red Leaf Lettuce – Acadian Family Farm
Strawberries – Gundermann

Turnips OR Kale – Gundermann
Stir-fried pea shoots – This calls for 1.5 lbs of pea shoots and we probably won’t get that many, so adjust the ingredients accordingly.
Chard soup with cilantro – I was on a soup hiatus when the weather was in the 80s for a few weeks, but now that it’s cooled off I’m adding this one to the rotation. At least until it warms up.
Marinated kale, radish, and pine nut salad – I admit I’m a little fascinated by this one. Marinated hearty greens? This has the potential for lots of tastiness.
For those of you who get turnips, try one of these easy side-dish recipes.
