This week your bag will contain lettuce, french green beans (haricots verts), tomatoes, papayas, sweet potato, and dandelion greens! We also expect to have a new supplier of tomatoes (Nalo Farms), so you will be receiving a second bag of tomatoes and hope you’ll let us know what you think of them.
This week we are proud to feature dandelion greens from Nalo Farms.
Spring is a wonderful time to try new things; dandelion greens are a perfect start. They can be added to salads or sauteed with garlic and onion. Like many greens that are slightly bitter tasting, they pair well with a splash of vinegar or wine at the end of cooking. Dandelion greens are very nutritious, with high levels of beta-carotene, calcium, iron, and many vitamins.
Sauteed Dandelion Greens This recipe calls for boiling the leaves first, and is for a few pounds of leaves. Adjust the ingredients down for the amount you have.
This week you’ll also find haricot verts in your bag. These are also known as French green beans; they are younger and thinner than common green beans.
Haricots verts with shallots Another easy recipe, and from the looks of it, delicious!!
