SMALL VEGGIE BAG
1 head bitter greens (escarole, frisee or dandelion greens) : These are great for detoxing your liver and can taste great too. Lightly cooking them takes away some of the bitterness. Use some type of acid like lemon juice or vinegar and a fat like olive oil or cheese to accompany them.
1 bunch oregano : great additions to bitter greens and fava bean dishes.
1 bag fava beans or snap peas : both of these are a spring treat. Fava beans are a bit of work to prepare but the reward is worth it.
1 bag salad greens or 1 head lettuce : Obviously you can use these for a delicious fresh salad but these are also a great addition to sandwiches. (1/3 to 1/2 lb)
1 kohlrabi : This is sweet and crunchy. While it may look a bit weird, it tastes a lot like a broccoli stem and is great sliced and eaten raw or cooked up in a stir fry.
LARGE VEGGIE BAG
1 bag salad greens: Spring is salad time :D (1/3 to 1/2 lb bag)
1 head lettuce: This is some of the first of the season for us! Some varieties are frilly and delicate while others are crisp and hearty. They are all delicious!
1 bag pea shoots : sweet and tender. These are a great addition to sandwiches and salads
1 bunch cooking greens (chard or kale) : these greens are great as a side dish on their own or are a perfect addition to a soup or stew
1 bunch Asian greens : ginger and miso go great with these.
1 bunch radishes (french or red) -OR- Asian turnips : Fresh on salads is great but have you tried to lightly saute these in some butter?
1 fennel : Fennel is great braised with pork or can be eaten raw on a salad.
1 bunch cilantro -OR- garlic chives : great additions to a quick stir fry.
