Originally this fabulous Luna Circle Farm CSA recipe called for sorrel, but can really be made with any flavorful leafy green. Experiment with your favorites! -SR

Grilled Eggplant with Basil Vinaigrette

Eggplant doesn't need a lot of preparation to taste great. Specialty varieties like Lilac Bride often lack the astringent flavor and big seeds that Italian Globe eggplant sometimes has.

Grilled Plantains

Once your grill is fired up, these are dead simple to make, and you can use plaintains of varying ripeness with good results. The riper, yellow and black plantains will be sweeter and more creamy, and green ones will yield a milder taste with a starchy, dry texture.

Grilled Skirt Steak with Greek Salsa

Skirt steak is a great steak for grilling - it tastes great and is less expensive. Since it's a lean cut, be sure not to overcook it -- nothing past medium. Look for a thicker piece.

Guacamole

Guacamole is certainly one of the most beloved of appetizers. This interpretation of the timeless classic uses tomatillos, which makes it a bit unique. Guaranteed to please whatever crowd you're serving!

Guacamole with Papalo

Papalo is an herb which is a staple in Mexican cooking, and is often set out on the table at mealtime with bunches of parsley and cilantro. It has a unique, distinctive flavor that is similar to cilantro and goes well in dishes where you would use that herb - but be aware that a little goes a long way.

Herbal Honey

Lovely on the eyes and on the palate, making herbal honey is a fun way to add variety and creativity to your pantry. This is also a great gift idea!

Hibiscus Lemon Cooler

Refreshing, tart, and fruity, this delicious summer drink is great on a hot night. And I don't need to tell you how yummy it would be with a boozy addition!

Homemade Applesauce

Kids of all ages love applesauce! Serve it as a snack or for dessert; dollop it on potato pancakes or buttermilk pancakes. Increase the quantities and freeze the extra.

Homemade Spicy Ketchup

If you are not a ketchup person now, this spicy and sweet spread is likely to convert you! A little jar would also make a great gift in the summer.

 

Jicama & Avocado Salad

This salad combines the wonderful flavors of jicama and avocado with refreshing citrus. However, contrasting textures make this recipe really sing. Crisp and refreshing, this salad is a great light dinner on its own, but is also perfect paired with jerked pork (or tofu) for a tropical evening at home. Mango margaritas, anyone?

Jicama-Melon Fruit Salad

Jicama and honeydew melon feature prominently in this fresh salad bringing fruit and vegetable together for a tangy treat.

Kale and Black Bean Tacos with Chimichurri

These tacos are so easy to make, they’re sure to become a weeknight staple. The chimichurri adds a bright, tangy, and garlicky flavor that complements the black beans and kale nicely.

Kale and Honeydew Summer Salad

The hearty flavor of the kale (I recommend lacinato) combines with the sweetness of melon and the richness of the cheese to make a knock-out salad!

Kiwi-Lime Ice Pops

A healthy and very pretty treat! Perfect after school snack or light dessert.

Kumquat and Red Cabbage Slaw

Did you know kumquats are one of the only citrus fruits you can eat whole? Experiment with the dressing in this tasty and simple slaw until it suits your fancy. The sweet/tart combination of the kumquat fruit and rind contrast beautifully with the crunch of the red cabbage!

Kumquat Salsa

Charming kumquats make for excellent salsa! Spoon over the usual quesadilla, munch with chips, or serve over a protein of your choice. Play with the ingredients- add whatever attracts your notice!

Lamb Chops with Pistachio Tapenade

Seared for just a few minutes in a hot pan, then spread with a quick, very good tapenade before going in the oven for just 5 minutes, these lamb chops will be on the table in less than a half hour! Throw together a salad, and dinner is served. 

Leeks Vinaigrette

This recipe comes from the blog Orangette, and has revolutionized my relationship with leeks!

Lemon Tahini Sauce

Thin down this sauce down to use as a tangy salad dressing, or leave it thick to spread on sandwiches, or as a dip for vegetables.

 

Lemon Vinaigrette

This simple vinaigrette is delicious as is, but makes a great base if you'd like to add herbs or garlic.

Lentils with Butternut Squash and Walnuts

Memorable. There is something quietly delicate about this side. This is comfort food that isn't too heavy or difficult to digest, just pleasant and warm on a chilly evening.

Lily's Beef Stew

This is a simple, hands-off stew, perfect for a chilly fall or winter evening.
