Fresh & Foraged Recipes

This week’s box sings of both the garden and the forest as it offers up freshly-harvested asparagus, radishes, turnips, fingerling potatoes and more as well as locally-foraged Morel mushrooms, a true Northwest favorite. Enjoy these tastes of springtime alongside freshly-made egg semolina pappardelle pasta, Pain au Levain bread, citrus fruit, and eggs from our heritage breed hens, as well as fragrant garden-grown herbs like tarragon, parsley and chives, and crisp salad greens—it’s all oh-so bright and oh-so fresh.

Grilled Asparagus with Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette

A fresh blend of Meyer lemon juice, olive oil and garlic adds big flavor to grilled asparagus stalks.

Ingredients:
2 pounds asparagus, trimmed
1 garlic clove, minced
Juice of 1 Meyer lemon, plus 2 teaspoons lemon zest
½ cup olive oil, plus 1 tablespoon
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice and zest, and garlic. Check for seasoning and add salt and pepper, as needed. Set aside.

2. Set a grill cooking grate or basket in place, cover grill and allow to preheat for 5 minutes. While the grill is preheating, place asparagus in a large bowl and toss with the tablespoon of olive oil, coating evenly. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Add asparagus to grill and cook, turning occasionally, until well charred and tender, about 6 minutes total depending on the thickness of the stalks. Transfer asparagus to a serving platter and drizzle the vinaigrette over the top. Serve immediately.

Variation: Make it a meal by adding flaked smoked salmon and a fried duck egg to each portion of asparagus!
