CSA: Beets, Chard, Bok Choy, Onions, Daikon, Tomatoes, Squash

This week has been crazy between local tournaments, national conventions, and academic musings. I can't believe I forgot to post! Here was my CSA box review for last week.

Rainbow Chard
Bok Choy
Red Torpedo Onions
Daikon Radishes
Yellow Pear Cherry Tomatoes
Sweet Dumpling Squash
I cooked up the beet greens with the chard and boy choy and some garlic. The beets were chopped and cooked down with the tomatoes to make a chutney that I ate with grilled tempeh. I shredded the radish and enjoyed it prepared in a carrot-daikon drink that I read about in the Kind Diet. The onions and squash were roasted with a little bit of olive oil, sea salt, and crushed black pepper.

I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
