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:
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!
