CSA Week 19

Happy first day of fall! 

In the box this week:

  • Turnips (you can eat the greens too!)
  • Salad mix
  • Leeks
  • Garlic
  • Italian peppers
  • Sungold Tomatoes

Some turnip ideas:

Sauteed turnips and greens:
Cook peeled and cut-up turnips and sliced garlic in olive oil in a large skillet until tender. Add the turnip greens and cook until just wilted. Season with salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.

Creamy leek and turnip soup:
Cook thinly sliced leeks in butter in a large saucepan until soft. Add peeled and cut-up turnips and enough chicken broth to cover. Simmer until very tender. Puree until smooth, adding water or broth as necessary to adjust the consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
