Over the weekend, we made sure to use as much of the fresh produce from our CSA box from Driftless Organics as we could. Last week our CSA box was once again loaded with some wonderful vegetables and I am truly enjoying our attempts at figuring out new ways to use all the different foods that come. For instance, last night my husband made a simple, yet delicious, coleslaw, using 1 kohlrabi, 1 turnip, 3 carrots, apple cider, a bit of sugar, a touch of homemade mustard, homemade mayonnaise, sea salt and black pepper. The freshness of this coleslaw was awesome and the different vegetables were great together. I truly doubt we would have ever bought these ingredients at the store for a coleslaw, but because we had the kohlrabi and turnip in the box we wanted to find a new use for them.
What You'll Need serves 4-6 2 lbs potatoes, I used a mixture of yellow and red potatoes, chopped into rough 1" chunks3 garlic scapes, sliced into 1/4" pieces
5 purple scallions, sliced into 1/4" pieces1 tbsp fresh summer savory, finely chopped 4 tbsp melted, unsalted butterCeltic sea saltFresh ground black pepper
1. Have your grill nice and hot and allow for about 30 minutes of cooking time. We cooked our vegetables first, set kept the covered for another 10 min. while we cooked our hamburgers. Always have your coals on one side of grill allowing for a cooking place for food that needs more indirect heat.
2. Well, it truly doesn't get easier than this. Grab a decent size cast iron skillet (12" is what I used) with lid or a large piece of heavy duty aluminum foil. Toss in all your ingredients and top of with a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper. Mix everything together to well distribute all the ingredients.
4. Once the potatoes are nicely browned on the outside and have a soft, but not fall apart consistency they are done. Enjoy immediately or keep covered and allow them to sit while you finishing grilling your main course. When we were ready to serve ours we did add a couple more pats of butter, but this isn't necessary.
Enjoy and have fun experimenting with your food!
