With a vivid assortment that includes Persian cucumbers, green beans, Jerada carrots and not one, but two different varieties of smoky peppers, the late-summer harvest continues here at the farm. This week’s box also continues to sing with such additional highlights as earthy Shiitake mushrooms, Chojuro Asian pears and baby bok choy; combine these beauties with fresh stir-fry noodles and spicy pork dumplings, and allow these fresh, seasonal flavors to shine.
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
Garlic-Ginger Vegetable Stir-Fry
Serve this fragrant stir-fry with noodles and a side of this week’s pork pelmeni; alternatively, we also love topping each serving with a fried egg and extra hot sauce.
Blistered Shishito Peppers
Easy to make and totally irresistible!
Green Bean Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette
Tossed with a Dijon mustard and sherry vinaigrette, these beans boast bright, zesty flavor.
Baby Bok Choy with Garlic & Ginger
Fresh ginger and fragrant garlic lend big flavor to sautéed bok choy greens.
This bright carrot soup from The Splendid Table is super flavorful thanks to a kick of fresh ginger and orange juice.
Sweet Onion Confit
This buttery-sweet topping is wonderful in sandwiches or even atop crackers.
