Living in the CSA: Asparagus, spaghetti squash and kohlrabi, oh my
On a rare day off yesterday, I actually go to go to the farm myself to pick up this week's CSA haul.
I didn't have much to report this past week because of the pine mouth situation (which is thankfully just about gone) and since we had a lot of familiar foods (green beans, carrots, apples) that we prepared in familiar ways.
As Richard noted in Table Talk this week, asparagus has one of the earliest seasons, and that was in our haul this week. I'm definitely interested to hear some favorite approaches to this veggie.
Less familiar was kohlrabi, but I got to try a sample of it roasted, which was described as "like broccoli, but milder." I'd agree with that. It was tasty cooked up with olive oil and sea salt. We'll probably try that with this batch, unless anyone has any other suggestions.
I was beyond excited to see we also got a spaghetti squash. I haven't had any in a while, but my stepdad used to roast them for dinner every so often, and I'm looking forward to revisiting that.
Now that the markets are starting to open up, anything you are looking forward to eating?
