Night 1: If you’ve never cooked rhubarb before, know that it is very tart, making it a wonderful match for strawberries. This recipe for strawberry-rhubarb pie also includes a nice explanation of how to use rhubarb. If you’re not in the mood to make pie crust (I promise, it’s not that hard), opt for this strawberry-rhubarb crisp.
Night 2: Sweet potato coconut curry soup
Night 3: Asparagus frittata
Night 4: This asparagus-strawberry salad would pair nicely with any grilled meat.
Night 5: Sweet potato latkes (I might pick up a few links of sausage at Braehead Farm this week to serve alongside these.)
Night 6: Blanched asparagus (store it in the fridge for 1-2 days) draped over egg-salad tartines
Night 7: Sweet potato and black bean enchiladas
