Thankfully, the CSA farm includes a weekly email describing each of the less familar veggies and it includes a recipe and some ideas to get you started.
It ended up being an extremely fun, fulfilling week for me! My husband liked much of what I prepared and we ended up having veggies included in nearly every dish! Lots of delicious greens chock full of vitamins and minerals, my body feels nourished and I am looking forward to week 2's veggie selection!
