Branching Out

Or, using up the CSA box veggies in new ways. We know what we are getting tomorrow. Monday and Tuesday I decided to use as many veggies as I could.

By making stir fry, with shrimp.

Most of the Napa cabbage went into this meal. Along with the last of the mushrooms. Some carrot. All the bean sprouts left. Add the other items from the store, like water chestnuts, cashews, jumbo shrimp, chow mein noodles, red pepper and scallions. Soy sauce, sesame oil, sriracha, garlic, salt, pepper, and cayenne flakes. Mix. Match. Don’t measure much. Really good dinner. Enough left over for me to have Wednesday while my husband is at a dinner meeting.

Tonight I made my first ever spinach souffle. Because of a recipe in my Eating By Color book.

Great cookbook from Williams Sonoma. Mine didn’t rise as much as theirs. But, it still tasted great. Used more CSA eggs, and the spinach left in the spinner. I substituted red onion for the shallot.

Bechamel I am good at making. Souffles, eh.

I think I beat the egg whites too much. Still, it didn’t look bad, and was really good.

Who know what I will try with tomorrow’s CSA delivery.

  1. I lost the Napa cabbage in my fridge, now I’m in a tizzy about what to do with it!!! And still wondering about using this week’s kohlrabi. Finished up the spinach tonight. This CSA is keeping us on our toes, isn’t it? (in a good way)
