Today was week 6 for my CSA veggies from KYV Farms but I haven’t had a chance to make a recipe plan so we’ll just have to wing it.  I can’t wait to try the beets, mainly because I haven’t liked them when I’ve ordered them in restaurants but I’m told I will like them fresh so I want to see if I really am a beet person after all.
Since I was having the minestrone soup leftovers I decided to make some Daikon radish chips (recipe below) in the toaster oven as an appetizer.  I was surprised the thinner ones actually came out crispy and they all took on the seasoning flavors beautifully. I didn’t use a mandolin this time but next time I definitely will just so they all cook uniformly and I might try out some different seasoning mixes just to keep things interesting.
Can you believe how gorgeous these veggie photos always come out?  I can’t take the credit. I almost never have to adjust the color or lighting.  They really are that fresh and gorgeous.
Thank you, Vivian and Francisco, for all your hard work to provide us with these organically raised vegetables that nourish me and my family.  I can only hope that more and more people will catch on to the value of the small farm and CSA.

Lettuce and Spinach
And Daikon Radish!
I love these as they are so low in calories and have lots of vitamin C.
I did a quick radish recipe that is so easy it almost isn’t a recipe but I’ll tell you what I did…
Daikon Radish Chips
 Ingredients
1 Daikon radish, sliced thinly (a mandolin will yield the best results)
Olive oil spray
Coarse sea salt, fresh ground pepper, garlic powder, to taste
Directions
1. Preheat broiler.  Spray a baking sheet with olive oil and lay the radish slices down.  Spray the tops with olive oil.  Broil for 5-8 minutes until just beginning to brown.  Flip and broil second side 5-8 minutes.  Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
***Note:  Watch the radish closely under the broiler to ensure they do not over brown.  Cooking times will vary with thickness of radish slices and proximity to heating elements.

  1. Ugh, you just reminded me that I had wanted to pick up beets to roast! I've never tried them roasted.

  2. What a fabulous idea! I picked up a daikon radish last week from my csa and roasted it. I like your idea much better.

  3. It was really easy in the toaster oven. I am going to try them with some Italian seasoning. Or I bet marinating them first would be good too….hmm….

  4. Another awesome collection of gorgeous and delicious vegetables. Good luck with the beets. They are a veggie I just love. Hopefully you will enjoy them this time!

  5. BEAUTIFUL delivery! So jealous. I want to join our CSA so bad. You can make beet chips just like the radish chips. They are fabulous (IMO)! Enjoy your weekend

  6. Beautiful vegetables, gorgeous pictures and the chips look so good and so healthy! I love beets, roasted, in salads, dips or pickled, hope you will like them. :)

  7. I am browsing foodgawker for beet recipes! Will have to try making into chips. I hope I like them too!

  8. what an excellent idea! Love daikon radish but usually just have it in a salad with carrots.

    Glad you found my beet recipe! If you make it, please let me know how it comes out. I absolutely love beets: raw, roasted, cold, hot, in soups or salads ;)

  9. I love my CSA. I've been receiving them weekly for the past year. It's like Christmas every week. Always something new to delight me. I hadn't thought of making chips out of some of the veggies. What a great idea!
