CSA Week 7

Hello friends of the farm! 

In the box this week:

  • Fingerling potatoes
  • Walla walla onions
  • Eggplant
  • Red Cabbage
  • Purple Sprouting Broccoli
  • Blueberries

I'm going to share another recipe with you that I made this week: Polenta Pie. This one is from the Moosewood Cookbook. I used polenta from Lonesome Whistle Farm (they are at the farmers' market). 

Polenta Pie:

Easy deep-dish pizza with a thick and crunchy cornmeal crust.


  • 1.5 cups coarse cornmeal
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1.5 cups cold water
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • a little olive oil


  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 eggplant, cut into small cubes
  • 1 small zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 5-6 cloves garlic; sliced
  • Some basil
  • Some oregano
  • Fresh black pepper
  • .25 lb mozzarella cheese, grated
  • Sliced tomato

1) Combine cornmeal, salt, and cold water in small bowl. Have the boiling water on the stove in a saucepan, and add the cornmeal mixture, whisking. Cook bout 10 min over low heat, stirring frequently. It will get very thick. Remove from heat.

2) Preheat oven to 375. Oil a 10-in pie pan (I used a large cast iron). Add the polenta, and use a spatula to form it into a smooth, thick crust over the bottom and sides of the pan. Bake uncovered for 45 min.

3) Saute veggies, except tomato.  Put some cheese on the bottom of the crust. Cover with sliced tomatoes. Spread the sauteed mixture over the tomatoes, and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Broil about 5 minutes. Serve hot.
