On the 2nd of May our local CSA season started. It is still a bit too cold for the time of year over here (we even had night frost during the weekend) so the weekly loot is small — but TASTY!

I’m terrible late in posting the last four batches of organic vegetables from out local supplier. I’ve considered skipping but as my CSA (b)logs are meant to keep track of our weekly veg loot, I decided against that. Better late than never.

At the end of 2011 this log helped me fill in the survey about greens we’d missed and the ones we’d rather do without. ;)

The quality of the photos logging my weekly CSA greens from Amelisweerd are showing how the end of the season is nigh. Not that we’re getting less, or ugly vegetables. Now that the days are shortening quickly it’s just getting harder to make good pictures without a photostudio in da house.

  • Chervil

Menu plan November 25th – December 1st

I also got some organic veggies from another local garden that need(ed) to be finished: kale, carrots, leek and Brussels sprouts. Other foods in my fridge that won’t hold much longer are bell peppers, courgette, green beans, tofu, soy cream, shiitake mushrooms and coconut milk — a drinking variety which I don’t like and want to get rid of by cooking.

  • [Friday] Brussels sprouts with ginger, cumin, walnuts and raisins (Ecofabulous cookbook), parsnip-potato mash, salad of raddichio and corn salad
  • [Saturday] Chinese takeaway
  • [Sunday] Faux teriyaki meat from the Vegetarische Slager (‘Vegetarian Butcher’) with vegetables and noodles (I used this recipe with green beans instead of sugarsnap peas and no bok choi but Brussels sprouts and shiitake mushrooms)
  • [Monday] Spicy parsnip soup (Vegagerechten p.113), fruity red cabbage slaw and bakeoff bread
  • [Tuesday] Veggie stir-fry (green and red paprika, white cabbage, shiitakes, onion, leek, carrot, garlic, ginger) and leftover takeaway bihun goreng
  • [Wednesday] Pumpkin risotto with grilled zucchini, oven-roasted plum tomatoes & red onions (Vegagerechten p.375) on corn salad
  • [Thursday] Chervil soup with oyster mushrooms, bean & bell pepper stew (Vegagerechten p.244), salad with walnuts & garlic croutons made of bread leftover from Monday (Vegagerechten p.196)

One of these days I also hope to make an apple tarte tatin for dessert. And I can already tell you next week’s menu will bring a veganised version of coleslaw with lime mayonnaise (Vegagerechten p.203) and saffron-sunchoke soup (Vegagerechten) on the table. I can hardly wait! ;) Still need to think up something with raddicchio and celeriac.

As I’m only getting around to posting this week’s veggies and menu plan today, several of the meals have already been cooked and eaten. ;) I’ll add some pics below!

Amelishof organic CSA vegetables week 42, 2011

As I was planning on baking a chocolate-beetroot cake this weekend (!), I was hoping immensily for red beets among Wednesday’s CSA vegetable loot. And YAY — a wish come true!

Other nice veggies too, like fennel which I needed for a fennel-bean dish I meant to make that evening for my visiting brother: a surprisingly good recipe from the new Puur Plantaardig (‘Purely Plant-based‘) cookbook that I mentioned in my Cookbook Sunday Salon.

Fennel-bean dish from PuurPlantaardig cookbook

Here’s the complete list of this week’s greens.

  • Dill
  • Fennel
  • Silver-stalked Swiss chard
  • Bundel of young beetroot
  • Lollo Rosso lettuce
  • Goudreinette apples

I’ll leave you with a preview of my unfinished beetroot pie: only the chocolate couverture topping left to do. That’ll have to wait till morning — so you must have patience as well. I hope you can handle the suspense..? I know I’m finding it difficult! ;P

Not only am I working to tackle my bento back(b)log; same goes for my CSA vegetable bag(log). I don’t think anyone noticed but I haven’t posted my loot for nine weeks!

Tile combination of vegetables

Now remember those ceramic tiles with veggies that were used to decorate kitchens? It inspired me to follow the same principle using Mosaic Maker. A list of 9 separate photos & descriptions would be just too much of an overkill. ;)

Hooray, now I’m up-to-date again!

My menu plans with this week’s greens include Taze Fasulye (Turkish beans) and a veggie stirfry with pak choi, beans, the last bit of previous week’s cabbage, carrot & tempeh bacon. Yes, I’ve made my first batch of tempeh bacon with the liquid smoke I was finally able to get at the September Streekmarkt!

Tempeh bacon

There's something missing in this picture... Amelishof organic CSA vegetables week 30, 2011

  • Basil
  • Turnips (white & golden)
  • Fennel
  • Prunes

If you’re thinking we came off badly this week, rest assured: we didn’t. There’s just something missing from this picture… Since we changed pick-up points this CSA season, we have to bring our own bag and select the vegetables we’re in title to instead of just grabbing a pre-packaged selection. That’s fine with us because it’s greener that way! But you have to pay attention… and that doesn’t always go well. ;) So I had to make a second run this week. Collecting:

  • Red Batavian lettuce
  • Broad beans — yay!

Menu plan

The beans went into a potato salad right away. Tomorrow we’ll be having a dinner guest and I plan to make taco’s with Mexican frijoles, salsa picante, guacamole, tri-coloured veggie mix (corn, courgette & red paprika) and fennel-tomato salad. The turnips will go into salad (grated) and I want to try mamichan’s spicy crispy umami salad. It’ll be Wednesday again before we know it!

Another post combining two weeks of organic CSA veggies. And another recipe in our cabbage feature too!

Organic CSA vegetables week 29, 2011

Amelishof organic CSA vegetables week 29, 2011

This week’s batch of Amelishof vegetables:

  • chard
  • curly red leaf lettuce
  • prunes
  • green beans
  • St. Jansui (tree onion)
  • capucijner peas
  • pointed cabbage

Yes, cabbage again — that means I can share another recipe with you!

Japanese Pickled Cabbage

Pickled cabbage (tsukemono)

In Japan, tsukemono are pickled dishes that contrast in texture and flavour to other parts of your meal. They can be served as side dishes, snacks or used as garnish. Pickled (Chinese) cabbage is often eaten with rice. Since I’m gaijin, I had it with noodles… :\ Here’s the recipe I took from The Vegetarian Table: Japan cookbook by Victoria Wise.

Now this is really easy so you have no excuse not to try!

Ingredients

  • 1 small cabbage (pointed, napa or green), washed, quartered, cored and finely shredded
  • 1/2 tablespoon sea salt
  • optional: 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh red chilli (I grown them on my balcony!)

Preparation

  1. Place cabbage and salt in a large bowl, toss together and knead the mixture with your hands until juices are released (about 1 minute).
  2. Scoop the cabbage in a mount, cover with a plate large enough to cover most of the surface but small enough to fit well inside the bowl. Top with a weight (i.e. heavy pan with water).
  3. Set aside until well wilted but still crunchy: 1-2 hours.
  4. Drain the cabbage.
  5. If serving right away: squeeze out most of the liquid without wringing dry. Transfer to a serving dish or individual plates and sprinkle with chili.
    Or to store: refrigerate for up to several days and squeeze out the extra moisture when ready to serve.

Types of tsukemono that can be made quickly like this are called sokusekizuke (instant pickles). They only hold well for a couple of days!

I usually hear people complain that they don’t know what to do with cabbage. So I was pretty surprised that I only got affirmative comments of cabbage lovers to on my previous recipe. I’m not a huge fan of this veggie myself, but am getting to appreciate it more and more with some fab recipes. So please share!

Amelis'Hof organic vegetables week 22, 2011

  • Radishes
  • (Bundle) leek
  • Red Batavian lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Endive frisée
  • Bundle garlic (spring garlic)
  • Strawberries

Yum, I’ve been anticipating those strawberries for a whole week! So much that I couldn’t resist buying some in the days in between ;) The very last one ended up in yesterday’s cold noodle bento. These strawberries in our CSA vegetable bag come from about 3 miles from our home! #greenliving ;) We immediately had them for dessert last night, so no need to come over to have a taste! ;)

I did manage to keep Ringo from devouring the endive (he haz a taste for it), so you may want to hop over one of the other nights?

Menu plan June 2-8 2011

  • Asian fusion: tofu in tausi black bean sauce (leftover Chinese takeaway), nasi goreng (fried rice) and toemis spinach (Vegetarisch Indonesisch kookboek p.45) [Wednesday]
  • Mexican night: bean burritos with steamed spinach [Thursday]
  • Bihoen with faux ‘chicken’ (leftover Chinese takeaway) and Toemis endive (Vegetarisch Indonesisch kookboek p.46), pangek brown borlotti beans (Vegetarisch Indonesisch kookboek p.51), nasi koening (freezer stash) and salad with leftover miso dressing
  • Endive-potato mash with mushroom gravy (La Dolce Vegan p.181), onion and vegan sausage, salad
  • Tomato-garlic pie (Amelisbode wk.22), green salad
  • Gnocchi with grilled zucchini and tomato salad

I’ll leave you with two more pictures of dishes from last week’s menu plan. The noodle salad was good, especially with emping for topping (chopped nuts will probably be great too), so I’ll definitely make that again. The leek soup recipe was a bit of a disappointment though — will need to look further!
