Harvest #3

It's classic June in Portland today: cold and wet.  The rain soaked me during harvest this morning, but the plants couldn't be happier.  A good boost of sunlight followed by a nice soak works wonders on the crops and things are looking good!

In the box this week:

asian greens
peas OR garlic

I like to use the greens (beet, mustards, kale) as the base for a palak paneer-style  curry dish:

Blanch the greens and set aside.  Sautee onions, garlic, ginger, and serano pepper. Once the onions are translucent, add tumeric, cumin, and garam masala.  (Start with 1/2 tsp increments and add more depending on your preference.)  Add about 3/4 c diced tomatoes.  Stir well!  Puree your blanched and cooled greens and add them.  Lastly add a half cup or so of cream or coconut milk.  Salt to taste!
