Adventures in the Kitchen: CSA Week 10


In the box this week: Green beans, corn, onion, beets, carrots, cucumber, zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes, green pepper, jalapeno peppers, watermelon, and a peach. 

I'm really enjoying the variety in this weeks box! And there are a few totally new items this week too - watermelon (isn't it just the cutest little melon you ever did see?!), eggplant, and jalapenos are all new! 

Eggplant is not normally something I would buy at the store, but I'm excited to try a new eggplant recipe. This Spicy Asian eggplant and quinoa from Julia's Album looks yummy! 


But I might have to tone down the spicy just a little for us - we are not huge spicy food people. 
SO...I'm not quite sure what to do with the jalapenos...Hopefully they are not to spicy for some salsa! 

OOO! This Balsamic Grilled Eggplant from The Nutrition Twins looks simple and yummy...and I'm a sucker for anything with balsamic 
in the title! 

Do you have a favorite way to eat eggplant?

  1. I love eggplants - make little pizzas out of them :) Put sauce & cheese & mushrooms on them & bake... YUM!

  2. Looks delicious! We pickle our jalapeƱos with some sweeter stuff which tones down the spice, and they are delicious!
