Farm Fresh Challenge: Mid Summer Harvest Stew


Chaos at the ritaLOVEStoWIRTE kitchen "studio" this week prevent my taking a "box shot" of our CSA goodies so I took a shot of the pertinent  ingredients  instead.

Ingredients from our CSA, Calverts Gifts included potatoes, cherry tomatoes and purple sage.  I added leak, broth and garlic salt (plus a bit more) to create a hardy summer stew.

Chaos at the ritaLOVEStoWIRTE test kitchen “studio” this week prevented my taking a “box shot” of our CSA goodies so I took a shot of the pertinent ingredients instead.

INGREDIENTS:

From the box:

  • 10 small to medium Potatoes

potatoes

  • 1 pint Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1/8 cup chopped Purple Basil
  • From the Pantry:
  • 1 Leak sliced

Leaks Basil toms

  • 1/2 cup Chicken Stock
  • Dash of Olive Oil
  • 1/2 pound protein (I used sausage) COOKED and sliced
  • Garlic Salt, Salt, Pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS:

1. In a large pot bring 5 cups of water to boil. add the Potatoes and cook until tender (about 5 minutes). Add the sliced Leaks and cook an addition 3 minutes. Drain  and set aside.

2. Add oil to the pot and put in the protein. Cook for 3 minutes (The protein needs to be pre-cooked == some might cal it “left over.” So you just need to heat it through for this recipe.) Add the Stock. Add the Tomatoes, Garlic Salt, Salt and Pepper to taste. Cook for 5 minutes.
