Night 1: Here’s a recipe you can re-purpose as the CSA sends different seasonal vegetables your way:Vegetable Chow Mein-ish. This week, I would use a generous amount of snow peas, cut cross-wise into thin pieces, about 2 cups of julienned squash and half a bunch of thinly sliced dinosaur kale in place of the vegetables listed in the recipe (keep the onions, though, for flavor)
Night 2: Barbecue chicken with a side of steamed snow peas (Most recipes for sugar snap peas are interchangeable with snow peas).
Night 3: Taco bar! In addition to your favorite taco meat, use squash sliced and sauteed with garlic and Southwest seasoning and raw shredded snow peas as your topping.
Night 4: Kale omelettes
Night 5: Shrimp and snow pea stir-fry
Nights 6 and 7: Make a basic lasagna, including in the layers any squash and kale that remain.
