Another Tuesday, another CSA!
Today’s bounty is very, very green.
I received collard greens, kale, lettuce, parsley and swiss chard. I also, like the past 2 weeks, can go pick a quart each of peas and strawberries, and I’m looking forward to doing this on Sunday.
There is always recipes included with our share and this week one of the recipes was for a kale and white bean soup. Conveniently, I had all the ingredients and in the pot they all went. About an hour later, I had the most tasty soup. With a bit of bread and some parmesan cheese, nomnom.
My version of the white bean and kale soup:
In a big pot, cook a small onion’s worth (white and/or red onion), red pepper flakes and 2 minced garlic cloves in some olive oil.
Add 4 cups worth of chicken or vegetable stock. Bring to a boil.
Add 5 to 10 chopped kale leaves, bring to a boil and simmer for about 15 minutes until the kale becomes tender.
Add 2-3 cans of drained white beans, cook for an additional 10 to 15 minutes
Season to taste
Serve over a slice of crusty bread and garnish with some grated parmesan cheese
Enjoy the deliciousness
Tomorrow I’m looking forward to another delicious green salad with some lettuce, spinach and some radishes!
