One of the things I love best about a CSA (Community Sustained Agriculture, which we buy through Pleasant Hill Produce) membership is that no matter how discombobulated the tasks of life become, my basic weekly groceries are there waiting for me. Beyond picking them up my only commitment is to the fun of the weekly produce puzzle—what’ll I make with this? So to catch up with the last couple of weeks of veggies here are some fun things we found to make.
Nothing goes with kale like kale!
Ok, so a note about kale. It’s strong, it’s bold, it’s nutritious, and when you have it you have a lot of it. Just run with it—and by that I mean run with it right through your spice cabinet and with oodles of garlic. If you find a dish that you particularly like, see if it freezes well.
Kale and Cheese Puff Pastry
Preheat the oven to 400°. Assemble one box of frozen puff pastry dough, board & rolling pin, grater for cheese, cookie sheet for baking, greens, garlic/other spices, cheese, Dijon mustard.
Other stuff that might come in handy, pastry brush if you want to add an egg wash to the top of pastry before baking.
