UFO-shaped squash, two red-through-the-center tomatoes, and a package of garlic butter. These are the makings of a good meal.
We also got two onions, two UFO-shaped squash, two tomatoes, an eggplant, and a head of red lettuce.
The first order of business? Merrill's tomato sandwich, recreated by Kristen. The sandwich is made up of just five ingredients: wholegrain bread, the summer's best tomatoes, mayonnaise, salt, and pepper.
Now that we've scratched our tomato sandwich itch, it's time to think about what else to do with our CSA:
- We'll turn the squash into a summer squash gratin with salsa verde.
- The eggplant and onions will become spicy eggplant pasta.
- With that last tomato, we'll make brown butter tomatoes with the garlic butter.
- The red lettuce will get tossed with a surprisingly creamy yet dairy free dill vinaigrette.
