My CSA is in full season mode now and I totally choose a recipe by how many veggies that it uses up. I’ve started keeping my CSA ingredient list in an Evernote notebook and checking off as I use each ingredient. I think that our share is supposed to serve 4 people and there are just two of us, so I have my work cut out for me. I choose which ingredients to use up based on how long they will last. The sweet potatoes can wait until I’m ready, the tomatoes and fresh baby spinach need to be used ASAP. For this recipe I was trying to use up snow peas and broccoli, which pretty much set the stage for a stir fry, like this Beef with Broccoli and Snow Peas.
Actually if you look closely at the photo, you’ll notice that I should have called it Beef with Broccoli, Snow Peas and Edamame, but I was just too lazy to type all that in on my photo. The inspiration for this recipes comes from Ellie Krieger’s Emerald Stir-fry with Beef in So Easy. The original recipe also called for asparagus, but I didn’t have any and really it seemed plenty enough with the three veggies.
With just a little preparation, this stir fry comes together very quickly for an easy weeknight dinner. Another easy beef stir fry is this Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry.
