Week 2 of my CSA brought some fresh veggies that were the same as last week as well as a couple of new items. Problem is, I’ve still got veggies left over from last week to contend with! And quickly, before they go bad. (I was just reading an article that mentioned a scary statistic: 40 percent of food produced within Canadian borders gets wasted.)
Right now the challenging items seem to be the lettuce (we got a lot of it, and there’s only so much straight-up salad greens I can eat before I become a rabbit) and the whole heads of garlic. Do you just chop up the bulb, or is there a use for the greens?
In this week’s basket:
- Lettuce head (already used half of it to make lettuce wrap tacos)
- Beet bunch
- Carrot bunch
- Fresh garlic
- Garlic scapes (going to attempt garlic-basil pesto)
Any thoughts on what to do with the garlic bulbs?
