Magic CSA Veggies Week #12!

The deliveries are becoming smaller, but these are no less beautiful than the peak summer veggies we’ve received!

This week’s bounty consists of: huge leafy celery, a leek, 2 onions, broccoli, bag of beets, red potatoes, last of the hot peppers, tomatoes, and an adorable spaghetti squash!

    1. With last week’s celery, so far I’ve not done anything with the leaves other than wash them and keep them in a separate container for later use! They’re still pretty fresh looking and holy cow are they fragrant compared to store-bought!

      I think what my mom does is actually use them as a cilantro-like substitute. For example, when she steams a fish, she’ll usually douse it in sesame oil & soy sauce after cooking then scatter tons of chopped cilantro over top which gives it such a great freshness with each mouthful ^_^

      Other than that… I’m sort of at a loss! Ideas?

      1. I have never used celery leaves before. Probably because like you said, store bought is different. But I feel bad that I have been letting my garden celery leaves and CSA celery leaves go to waste. Never thought about using them as an aromatic. Thanks for the inspiration :) Sounds delish!
