CSA Share: Week 3

In the box this week:

  1. Cabbage (going to make a totally delicious Pain au chou)
  2. garlic scapes
  3. green onions
  4. mixed leaf lettuce
  5. broccoli
  6. snow peas
Pain au chou aka, cabbage loaf (from Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison)

Butter and freshly grated Parmesan for the dish
1.5 lbs green or Savoy cabbage, sliced in 2-inch squares
1/3 cup flour
1 cup milk
1/4 cup creme fraiche or cream
2 T tomato paste
3 eggs
3 T finely chopped parsley or dill
Salt and freshly milled pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 F. Butter a gratin dish and coat the sides with the cheese. Boil the cabbage, uncovered, in salted water for 5 minutes, then drain. Rinse, then press out as much water as possible. Whisk the remaining ingredients until smooth, add the cabbage, and pour the miture into the dish. Bake until firm and lightly browned, about 50 minutes.

It sounds strange, but it's delicious!

Interesting recipe! I think I would love it, but I'm not sure about the hubby and daughter.
