2017 CSA Week #2

Hello members!

Here is your list of veg for this week:
  1. Dinosaur/Italian kale
  2. Swiss chard
  3. Kohlrabi
  4. Green garlic
  5. Garlic scapes
  6. Bok choy
  7. Radishes OR Hakurei (salad) turnips
  8. Mini romaine lettuce trio
Jonny made this delicious kohlrabi soup 2 years ago for our CSA potluck and it was a hit. He didn't do a lot of measuring, so feel free to adjust/add to the recipe to make it even better.

Kohlrabi & Parsnip Soup
  • 4-6 kohlrabis
  • 1/2 lb parsnips
  • 1 celeriac root
  • 2-3 onions
  • 1/2 bulb garlic or 1 bunch garlic scapes or 1 bunch green garlic (roasting your scapes or green garlic will add a warmer, richer flavour)
  • 5-6 cups broth or bouillon (chicken, beef, veg or a mix)
  • 1 cup cream or 2 cups milk
  1. Chop kohlrabi, celeriac, parsnips and onions into small chunks. Chop/mince garlic of choice.
  2. Saute onions in a soup pot with butter or olive oil and a pinch of salt.
  3. Add chopped veg, garlic, more salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Cook until veg is slightly browned.
  5. Add broth or bouillon and cream.
  6. Bring to a boil then simmer until veg is soft enough to mash.
  7. Let it cool slightly then use an immersion blender to create a smooth and creamy puree.
  8. Garnish with a dusting of paprika and a sprig of parsley, or a sprinkle of chopped bacon.

Happy cooking!
