It is as if the CSA folks knew my parents are in town and consuming large amounts of cilantro with us – they packed an extra bunch into my delivery today, and it was absolutely beautiful.
I also ordered cauliflower even though I’m not really a fan…I tried to like it again this season, but after having it in a few stir fries, I was reminded of how much I really don’t enjoy this vegetable. That being said, I love having cauliflower in paronthas, and I’m sure my mom would love to make some for me.
Check out the colour of the radishes in the picture below – gorgeous! We planted radishes in the garden this year – hopefully we’ll have better luck than we’ve had in past years. I think we will since my dad was responsible for most of our spring planting during this visit.
Carrots, broccoli and grapefruit completed this week’s delivery. Our neighbours brought over a large bag of grapefruits from their yard this week as well, so I’ll need to get creative with finding ways to use them all!
Try this recipe for cauliflower and sweet potato soup. It is totally yummy. http://nora-anne.blogspot.ca/2007/10/melancauli-baby.html. I substitute low fat coconut milk for the evaporated milk and skip the cheese. I’m actually having some of this for lunch today. Can’t wait.
Oh, I have a lot of Japanese sweet potatoes at home right now – I should give it a try.
So, do you love cilantro or hate it? I’ve come around and now really enjoy it but that wasn’t always the case.
I love it – so refreshing…but that’s a lot of cilantro to use up in a week!
