CS(Amen)! Breakfast Special

I am so excited about our CSA! The loot is always so surprising and it's fun to compare what we get here in Brooklyn with what I was receiving at this time last year from Groundswell Farm in Michigan. This is our second week of reaping a bounty of greens, radishes, onions, herbs, and garlic. It's always a challenge to find ways to use veggies in the morning, but I am convinced that breakfast burritos are the ticket. You can throw anything in your tofu scramble and leafy greens, spring onions, radishes, and cilantro make great (fresh) add-ons.

Making breakfast with (and for) my roommates is one of my favorite weekend activities. After a few cups of strong Columbian coffee, I went all out with these deluxe burritos. Black beans were seasoned with fresh garlic, onion, bay leaves, oregano, and cumin. A tofu scramble was prepared with tomatoes, onions, garlic, thyme, extra nutritional yeast, and kale. Toppings included a thick schmear of tofu sour cream, thinly sliced avocado, thick lime-y salsa, leafy green lettuce, fresh radishes, spring onions, and a squeeze of lime.

Central Brooklyn CSA is run by the New York City Coalition Against Hunger, and CSA shares range in price depending on your household's income. You can check out the CSA's blog here- http://centralbrooklyncsa.wordpress.com.
Groundswell Farm is another special farm run as a CSA near Grand Rapids, MI. You can check out their webpage here- http://www.groundswellfarm.org.

Stay tuned for many more CS(Amen) stories from yours truly!
