telesilla: 1950s woman in kitchen (cooking)

So there was a cabbage in the box this week. I've got a recipe for cabbage and beans that we really liked, but I don't have any beans. However, I do have lentils and so I went looking for a cabbage and lentil recipe and found this recipe. I messed with it some, adding bacon for flavor (which can totally be left out if you want to make this vegetarian) and a can of diced tomatoes because I liked the tomatoes in my cabbage and beans recipe. I took the chili out because a) we don't like chilies and b) I don't have any. I also didn't have a bay leaf, which is sad. *puts on list*

The result is very tasty. Cooking the cabbage in advance like this deals with the bitterness and the bacon adds a really nice smokey flavor. I can tell that it's going to be even better tomorrow. Even though it's late May here in the Sacramento Valley, it's been very cool and so this is perfect food for the weather.

Quick and Easy Pickled Beets

A while back I made cucumber sunomono. I was thinking about it as I looked at the beets in yesterday's box. I used to love pickled beets as a kid and I thought, why not try making beet sunomono?

This recipe came with my first share this week:

5 medium beets
4 medium carrots, sliced diagonally
4 medium hakurei turnips, cubed
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 Tb lime juice
2 Tb chopped cilantro or dill
2 garlic scapes or 2 stalks green garlic, minced
salt to taste

Cook beets whole, skin and all until you can easily put a fork in. Drain and put in cold water until cool enough to rub skins off and cut up. Steam carrots until tender-crunchy. Cube turnips. (Greens from the beets and turnips can be saved and sauteed up with some garlic for another tasty addition to your meal.) Combine dressing ingredients. Put veggies in a bowl and toss with dressing. Chill.
