Box Contents June 18, 2008

Purple Cauliflower
Originally uploaded by michellefleury.
This week's box contains:
  • Salad Mix
  • Baby Spinach
  • Cauliflower (Purple)
  • Mint
  • Fennel
  • Sorrel
  • Strawberries
As usual, I'm lost for the desire to make use of the lettuce, but everything else will find a place on our plates.

Most of contents from last week's and the prior week's boxes found their way into a "stone soup" of sorts; random ingredients on hand went into a pot and a hearty, tasty soup emerged:
Stone Soup

bunch of erbette chard, chopped
bunch of gallegan kale, chopped
pile of french fingerling potatoes, diced
bunch of turnips, diced
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can chickpeas
1/2 cup quinoa
4 large cloves garlic
1T olive oil
2 Rapunzel vegan vegetable bouillon cubes

We sauteed the garlic in olive oil and then added the freshly washed greens. Meanwhile everything else simmered in a stockpot till tender. Greens, and the juices created during their sautee, were added. Stir to combine and soup's on!
I seasoned mine with ume plum vinegar, Sean seasoned his with black pepper. For ease of eating, it is important everything is bite-sized. A few ideas for further seasoning include porcini powder and fennel pollen.

No word yet on what Teresa and Billy did with the June 4th box, but stay tuned.
