How to utilize all my CSA veggies

Posted on 2008.10.06 at 21:47

"Using the entire box of veggies was both satisfying and relieving."

How I did it:  I decided to target each of the vegetables and find recipes that sounded tasty. Then I made a meal plan for the week and went grocery shopping to pick up and additional ingredients I needed (such as meat). Every day that week my husband and I made a concerted effort to cook one of the meals instead of eating out and by the end of the week our produce bins were empty.

Lessons & tips: Make a plan and stick to it. Also, look for recipes in places you might not normally think of. I used a lot of vegetarian resources even though I'm an omnivore.  Vegetarian cookbooks seem to be a lot more creative and have a wider variety of vegetables.
