(2017) Pasta with Kale Pesto

Adapted from a recipe in Saveur magazine. Have you tried making pesto with kale? Delicious. And no telling how long kale will still be coming in, so enjoy while you can. Blanching the kale keeps the pesto a bright green. Not entirely necessary, but a nice touch.

(2017) Wilted Greens Pasta

This is my go-to for any greens that show up in the box. Delicious with kale but amazing with cabbage. (If that bok choy from last week is still in the refrigerator, try it in this recipe.) Takes no longer to make than it takes to cook the pasta. No idea where I got this idea originally.

Cornmeal and Kale Soup

Oops – this is another recipe that came from seriouseats.com but I couldn’t resist sending it when I saw that pretty bunch of kale in our boxes. You could make this with grits and just cook it a little longer until the grits are tender.

Pulled Pork with Italian-flavored Greens

Yes, this one is a little complicated, but worth it. The smell of that pork shoulder roasting is an incredibly fragrant way to perfume your house on a cool weekend afternoon. Serve it as a sandwich as given here, or skip the rolls and cheese and plate it up for dinner. Pick up the biggest pork shoulder you can find at one of Riverview’s many farmers market booths this week.
