I thought about preparing a long list of various recipes for everyone to try, but I decided to share my top 3 favorite recipes for this weeks share veggies. These are my staple recipes, and i have cooked each of these dozens of times.
1. Chinese Cabbage Cole Slaw:
-Make coleslaw dressing: 1/4 cup mayo, 1 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, tablespoon or two of sugar, salt and pepper (mix all together in bowl to taste)
– Toss chopped chinese cabbage (1/4 to half a head) ( cut into strips, stems and leaves), with thinly sliced radishes, chopped scallions, and coleslaw dressing. Add other veggies as well.
2. Sauteed Komatsuna with Garlic:
-Mince garlic, and chop komatsuna into strips (leaves and stems)
-Heat hot pan with oil, add garlic and saute for 2 minutes.
-Add stems of komatsuna and cook for 3 minutes.
-Add soy sauce or braggs liquid aminos, and rice wine vinegar to taste
-Cook until done : as you prefer.
(my ratio is about 1 part vinegar to 3 parts soy sauce)
3. Soup with soy, garlic, ginger and greens:
-If you have a nice vegetable or chicken stock available, a simple Asian green soup is always very easy.
-Saute, chopped garlic, ginger and onions. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Add stems of Asian greens. (or use dried ginger). Cook for 2 minutes.
-Add stock, soy sauce, leaves of greens, salt and pepper. to taste.
-Also works well with dumplings or rice stick noodles, add thinly sliced raw radishes, turnips and scallions at the end for some texture and more flavor.
