What’s in the Box?

Hello, my name is Darius Vojdani. I am currently enrolled in the Sustainable Agriculture program and have the pleasure to work on the student farm for my co-op.

With the start of the fall season, the CSA boxes are now in full swing. This week’s CSA box contains some really great items.

Here’s what’s in this week’s box:

  • French breakfast raddishes

  • Mix of peppers
    • Sweet bell
    • Lipstick
    • Poblano
  • Bok choy
    • Shanghai (smaller)
    • Prize (bigger)

For those that may not know quite how to prepare the two kinds of bok choy, please refer to the kitchn website at http://www.thekitchn.com/how-do-you-bok-choy-10-ways-to-love-this-asian-green-ingredient-spotlight-189203 for at least ten different recipes where you are bound to find something to satisfy your pallet.

Personally, I would highly suggest the following tasty recipe if you are looking for a twist on your salad and trying to incorporate more ‘greens’ in your diet.
