Because the CSA’s vegetables will be local and organic, they won’t always be the veggies that we’re used to getting at a standard grocery store (where those “familiar” vegetables are often trucked or flown in from other countries, using tons of gas and preservative chemicals in the process). And Sang Lee farms specializes in growing Asian vegetables that a lot of non-Asian Americans aren’t familiar with. So since some of us don’t know our bok choy from our u-choy, or what to do with either, we’re starting a recipe exchange.
I’ll kick things off with a recipe that got sent to me from CSA member Simone, a local holistic health counselor!
‘Ital’ Vital Life Juice
3 oz beet
1 oz celery
1 oz carrot
1/3 oz white radish
1/8 oz ginger, and
1/3 oz red potato
Juice or blend together and drink up!
Quick Note: If you are using a blender you may have to dilute your juice a bit with some purified water so that it is not so thick.
Webmistress note: Contact Simone if you’re interested in finding out more about the health benefits of this juice, or getting on her weekly mailing list.
