Stocking Your Shed

Stocking in preparation for your big pile o’ CSA veggies will make your decision-making process considerably easier. Some standard and easy meals for share days are stir-fries, frittatas, pasta dishes, and salads. Bulk items are terrific backdrops for veggies and if you keep a pantry (or likely in New York apartments, a cabinet) stocked with grains, beans, and pastas, cooking from a share can be a cinch. Not to mention bulk items save money and reduce packaging waste. Here’s a list of some things always in our¬†kitchen:

  • beans (black, cannellini, chickpea, kidney, lentil)
  • grains (quinoa, barley, oats, couscous)
  • rice (brown basmati, arborio, wild, short-grained [sticky])
  • nuts (almond, pistachio, peanut)
  • dried fruit (apricot, date, raisin, crystalized ginger)
  • seeds (sunflower, pumpkin)
  • pastas (whole wheat or multi-grain)
  • peanut butter
