There’s Creativity in Everything

This is the delightful work of our summer farm hand Sam.  After a successful Wednesday CSA harvest I gave Sam the duty to stack up all of the harvest bins to dry.  This was his creation.  Being a teacher at heart I always love to see what someone can create given the opportunity.

Now to the main topic of today’s post:  What to do with those fresh veggies from the farm?

Well our Wednesday CSA members got a plethora of produce and I wanted to share something that I made from it (Yes me and Asa get to indulge in Bertrand Farm’s delicious produce too!)

Tofu Scramble w/ Bertrand Farm’s Veggies (serves 2-3)

– 2 spring onion (sliced thinly)

– 1 large clove garlic (minced or finely chopped)

– 2 medium sized beets (roughly chopped)

– 1 package extra firm tofu (cut into 1/2 inch chunks)

– 4 chinese cabbage leaves (roughly chopped)

– beet greens (from above beets)

Directions:

Pour 2-3 Tablespoons olive oil in skillet.  Set on medium heat.  When hot add onions, garlic, and tofu.  Season w/ ginger, chili powder, cumin, salt, & pepper.  Cook for 10 minutes turning regularly to crisp sides of tofu evenly.  Add chopped beets to skillet.  Continue cooking until beets are fork tender (10-15 minutes).

In another pan heat up 1 Tablespoon olive oil over medium heat.  Add chinese cabbage and beet greens.  Saute for 5 minutes.  Splash with 1-2 Tablespoons soy sauce.  Cover with lid to wilt greens (5-10 minutes).

Serve immediately over cooked brown rice.  Drizzle w/ extra soy sauce, hot sauce, or whatever suites your taste buds!

*Note:  I used two pans instead of one because I didn’t want the coloration from the beets to bled into the greens.  Also when I cook, I”m a taster so I don’t always know how much of this or that I use.  Trust your tongue is my advice!
