‘Aina Ho’okupo O Kilauea Community Garden inspired my plate. I recently subscribed to a CSA with them to supply my personal chef dinners and catered weddings. With 75 acres to play with, the AHK team of dedicated staff and volunteers is growing gorgeous organic produce for the community. In this weeks box: beets, turnips, kale, butter lettuces, green onions, eggplant, beans, baby bok choy, chard and cilantro.
For this dinner: grilled uku (super fresh local grey snapper), pickled beets, roasted eggplant, turnips, grilled green onion and bok choy, furikake sushi rice with sesame lime vinaigrette
Pickled gold and red beets in rice vinegar, kombu, sugar and salt.
Don’t throw away your turnip greens! Lightly rub them with olive oil, place them flat on a tray and roast them at 400 until crispy. They add a delicious, savory, crunchy dimension to your plate.
There is a strong movement here on Kauai to encourage residents and visitors to buy local. 90% of our food is still being imported. Call us for your next dinner party or to cater your wedding. Taste what Kauai is growing!
