Week 20 One Straw Farm CSA was another big one, and made me realize that I better start squirreling some of this fresh food away for the winter. I’m already mourning the end of this adventure, which ceases in a mere 6 weeks. I spent the week prepping and either cooking or storing any accumulated stuff, knowing how fully I am going to miss the weekly CSA drop-off! This week brought red leaf lettuce, cilantro, collard greens, broccoli, sweet potatoes, potatoes, delicata squash (remember: you can eat the rind!), eggplants, and a gorgeous golden cauliflower. This week’s recipe merges some of last week’s ingredients with this week’s and takes us all the way to Africa, for a delicious vegetarian Ethiopian dish.

Tikil Gomen (Ethiopian Cabbage Stew)

Normally this dish would be lovely shades of ochres and orange, but my purple cabbage made it more colorful---and I like it!
