Burritos with Beans and Greens

I wish my mother had thought of making burritos from Swiss chard. I might have eaten my greens as a child and liked them. My farm box of fresh veggies arrives twice a month, and this time of year it’s full of greens. Chard, kale, beet, spinach, mustard and collard greens have all made an …

Radish Love

Why haven’t I roasted radishes before? How fantastic they are, their peppery edge mellows, turning sweet, and the green stems are a wee bitter and nutty in all the best ways. Cut radishes in half and toss with olive oil and salt. Place the tray into an oven heated to 400°F (200°C). Cook for 15 …
