Eighth Day of Lenox Hill Neighborhood House CSA: July 25th

 Hello everyone,

Pick up is  Wednesday, July 25th from 4pm – 6:30pm outside the entrance of 331 East 70th Street. Here are the list of vegetables, fruit and cheese for this week. I have included some seasonal and easy recipes that can be used for some of our ingredients. Enjoy!

Vegetables :

Corn ( 3 ears per share )

1 1/2 lbs. Red Potatoes

Arugula Bunch

Radish Bunch

Onion Bunch

1 Head of Garlic

Zucchini

Vegetable Recipes:

Before I list off tips and recipes for the day I tried to find a recipe that had a majority of our ingredients for the week, and this Charred Corn tacos with Zucchini and Radish Slaw comes pretty close.  

Corn:

How to De-Kernel Corn

Corn Salad with Cilantro and Caramelized Onions

Sweetcorn Fritters with Homemade Ketchup

Corn on the Cob with Lime and Cayenne

 Red Potatoes:

Roasted Potatoes can be used as a side dish for any meat. It is always a delicious addition to chicken, fish, or red meat. I am obsessed with rosemary and have put this recipe from Epicurious to good use.  

Grilled Potato Salad: Replace summer squash with our zucchini share.

Arugula, Pear and Potato Quesadilla: This recipe is based on a gluten free and vegan diet. The tortilla used can be replaced by any other brand or type as can the coconut oil.

Blue Cheese and Red Potato Tart 

Arugula:

Arugula Pesto Wheat Berries Recipe: If you are not one for arugula in a salad, try this arugula pesto recipe.  Replace Wheat Berries with anything you like; quinoa, rice, barley, or bow tie pasta. Personally, I love bulgur in this recipe.   

Spiced, Sauteed Avocado and Arugula

Shaved Fennel and Arugula Salad: Just in case you have been swamped in fennel lately, which I know you have, here is a tasty arugula salad topped with a simple lemon and olive oil dressing. This recipe also calls for zucchini.  

 

Radishes:

Red Potatoes Salad with Scallions and Radishes

Red Radish and Arugula Soup

 

Onion Bunch:

Big Bowl of Quinoa: this recipe calls for some of our vegetables on the list including garlic, potatoes  and onions.
