7 Mar

I hope everyone had a great weekend and looking forward to this week’s CSA. If you’re stumped with what to do with fava bean leaves, kale, or strawberries, then just keep reading. You’ll soon find recipes for a Mediterranean Salad with Fava Bean Leaves, Butternut Squash Stew with Kale, and for dessert, Strawberry Shortcake.

Advice on Fava Greens from theproducehunter.com…

“Fava greens taste like fava-flavored chard… treat them like spinach in quiches, lasagna, omelettes, or salads.”

Here are some other ideas for what to do with Fava Greens (from Chowhound.com)…

  • Sautéed fava greens with prosciutto
  • Green salad of fava greens, pea shoots, arugula, and mixed spring lettuce
  • Fava greens marinated in oil and salt, with sorrel chopped very fine
  • Spaghettini with Manila clams, green garlic, fava greens and cream
  • Peach salad with duck confit and fava greens
  • Stir-fried, then tossed with fresh fava beans and lamb braising juices and served with lamb shank

Here is your sneak peak: green garlic, fava leaves, mandarins, kale/chard, oranges, dandelion/mustard greens, and strawberries.

Happy eatings,

Melissa
