Compelled to eat more vegetables, eat more locally, and eat more organic, we signed up for a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) box. It is delivered from Eat Well Farms in Dixon, California and we pick ours up only a few blocks from home. We opted to go with the semi-weekly box because there is just the two of us. The cost? Just $27.
This week's box contained:
- Stir-fry mix (dark, leafy greens - like chard)
- Radishes (red and a milder white variety)
- Green Garlic
- Navel Oranges
- Jerusalem Artichokes (AKA Sunchokes)
We are well stocked for the week and have already made some fun dishes. I like that they send you some items that you might not pick out on your own. To help out those that may be stumped with something in there, they add a few recipes in the box. This batch had instructions for a Cream of Jerusalem Artichoke Soup, Sautéed Radishes with Radish Greens &/or Arugula, and Carrot-Cous Cous Salad.
They also run a blog, check them out!
