We are sharing a CSA box from Featherstone Farm http://www.featherstonefarm.com/ with our neighbors for the first time this year. Like many others who join a CSA, we are enjoying freshness at it's best right now. Here are a few recipes that I've come up with so far:
Roasted Beets (recipe adapted from http://www.chow.com/)
3 medium beets-red/golden
1 Tbsp. olive oil
Rinse beets and trim off any leafy tops. Drizzle beets with oil; season with salt and pepper. Wrap beets in foil and place in oven on middle rack. Roast 1 hour until tender and easily pierced with a fork.
Let cool for a few minutes, then cut with knife. I leave the skin on for extra nutritional value, but it can be rubbed off if you prefer. Season again with salt, pepper to taste.
Roasted Blue Potatoes with Feta and Parsley
Small blue potatoes
sea salt, pepper
Wash and cut potatoes in half or thirds. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast for 25-30 minutes at 375 degrees until a pierced easily with a fork. Sprinkle with feta cheese and parsley and broil for few minutes until cheese browns a bit.
