This batch of goods from my CSA was populated by lettuce! I got two heads of romaine and one head of butter lettuce so I need to get lettuce chomping! The dragon beans are definitely the stand-out of the loot. Suzie’s Farm seems to be very proud of these guys. They posted a recipe for an updated version of green bean casserole using dragon beans that I am looking forward to trying with these beauties (and hopefully posting about).
Despite getting this CSA box on Sunday, I have yet to do much cooking with the produce. I hope to dive in later this week. For now I will leave you with a tofu sandwich I made, using the CSA lettuce and tomatoes as condiments. This is my favorite kind of at-home sandwich. The tofu is pressed and then marinated overnight in a mixture of BBQ sauce, soy sauce, olive oil, chili paste and liquid smoke. I then baked it at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes, flipping it half way through the cooking time. I loaded my baked tofu onto toasted wheat bread that I smothered with some of my homemade tartare sauce then I added a slice of vegan cheese, radish sprouts and the CSA stuff. It really hit the spot.
