From top left, clockwise: mustard greens, mixed lettuce, red Russian kale, spicy mix, Hakurei turnips, New Zealand spinach, dragon radishes, onion, rainbow chard (large share pictured).
Use first (will keep about a week in the fridge): spicy mix, turnip tops, kale (lasts longer but stems will toughen).
Store a little longer (about 2 weeks): mustard greens, lettuce, NZ spinach, rainbow chard.
Store very well (a month or more): Onion, radish, turnips.
All veggies this week(but for the onion) store best in a bag or sealed container in the refrigerator. Onions like cool dark spaces, but not quite as cool and dark as the refrigerator 🙂
Yes – we are encouraging you to eat your turnip greens! They are tender and loaded with nutrients. Try them steamed or sauteed with your mustard greens for a quick and easy side dish. The Hakurei turnips themselves are great raw or cooked. If you have never tried roasting them whole before, we would highly recommend it!
Dragon radishes are not as spicy as their name suggests. However, if you don’t find them to your liking raw, they too are delicious roasted.
Rainbow chard is one of our favorite vegetables. It is loaded with iron, easy on the eyes, and pretty versatile, too. Smoothies, soups, with your eggs, the sky is the limit! Check out the recipes below for some ideas & happy Wednesday!
