The farm stand (every Tuesday 4-7 pm, right at the farm) is in full spring swing! With all this warm weather plants have really taken off. Peas are in full force, but the stories of the week are kale and chard. You probably know how terrific they both are for you, packed with nutrients and fiber. And they are so versatile to eat! raw, steamed, sauteed, as a wrap for your favorite burrito insides.
This is what I am planning on making this week with kale: http://www.pbs.org/food/fresh-tastes/kale-salad-with-almonds/ Maybe not exactly like that, but something similar.
And this is what I'm going to make with chard: http://paninigirl.wordpress.com/2011/01/10/erbazzone-what-took-me-so-long/
What about you?
Share your spring time recipes in the comments below! Then I can come here when I'm at a loss with 5 lbs of red russian kale.
