But …. if you want to eat them up right now, try this luscious salad from Bon Appetit magazine.
So a little more complicated, a recipe from the New York Times. Delicious and worth pulling together. I’m finding lots of dried shiitakes these days at local farmers markets – a great way for the farmer to add value to shiitakes he/she might not have been able to sell fresh.
If you prefer, use instant dashi for the whole kombu/bonita flake thing. All available at Sevananda or wherever you buy such things.
We forget that greens make a great taco filling. Try this recipe from Michelle McKenzie and her book “Dandelion and Quince.” I don’t know what variety of small pepper was in our box this week, but it would be delicious in this recipe.
At our house, collards seldom show up undisguised. I make a fabulous collard tabouli and my husband has no idea he’s eating collards. He’s also not a fan of basil pestos, but this collard pesto from Southern Living is a delicious substitute.
In case you need a few ideas for using it up, the magazine suggested stirring some into hot mashed potatoes, into egg salad or just into mayonnaise and then using that as a sandwich spread. Perfect for a ham sandwich, I think.
This recipe will work with all kinds of greens. Just chop the greens finely. It’s adapted from a recipe in “Tacolicious” by Sara Deseran and Joe Hargrave.
Chef Cathy Conway is the founder/executive chef of Avalon Catering – completely dedicated to local food. I do not remember how I got this recipe from her, but it’s delicious. I’m just loving dumplings these days.
Do you have some Riverview cornmeal leftover from last year’s boxes? Then you’re all set.
Yes, collards can appear on your Thanksgiving table. This is a recipe from Southern Living.
This one comes from Woman’s Day. A nice dish for a dinner party. Pretty presentation.
