Anyway the great thing about having this CSA share is that it returns us to eating from the land, this land around here. I have many clients who started complaining in September about how their cravings for sweets increased as the daylight hours seem to fade. Well, due to seasonal changes in your environment you might really want some sweet food. Try some sweet root veggies to stave off cravings!
Greens and Root Vegetables
One bunch of kale.
Lots of root vegetables - as many as you want: potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, parsnips, etc.
Butter (if you want this vegan style use another oil!)
Oil (grape seed)
onion and garlic
salt and pepper
1. Chop vegetables, onions and garlic. Mix together in baking dish. Add herbs and spices if you want. Add a couple tbsp of maple syrup, if you want.
2. Bake covered at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes. Check it at 30 minutes, to test for tenderness.
3. When baking is about 10 minutes away from being complete, boil chopped kale (remove stems) with a pinch of salt. Boil for about 5 minutes. Then, strain.
4. When baking is complete, remove the root vegetables and mix the kale with the vegetables.
5. Ready to serve.
Note - This makes leftovers! Yay. I used some of my leftovers to make a "souper" quick soup. I also used some of this as a breakfast hash. YUM!
As always let me know what you think.
