Your Best CSA/Farm Market Menu Winner #1

(VeganAide - Vegtable Stroganoff)

Ancient Fire Wines and Kate’s Kitchen teamed up looking for CSA/Farm Market inspired menus. We are both thoroughly enjoying our fresh local produce and wanted to see what others have come up with to celebrate summer.

For a week we asked visitors to submit comments to this post on both blogs with a menu inspired by selections found in their CSA share or purchased at a local farm market. While the response wasn’t overwhelming, we are able to bring you two different inspirations from our Foodbuzz friends for your own summer enjoyment.

This week we are sharing the entry for a Vegetable Stroganoff from the Weekly Vegan Menu blog by the VeganAide. One of the unique aspects of the Weekly Vegan Menu are the cost breakdowns, letting you easily see what ingredients cost; which is useful beyond just a single recipe.

I contacted the VeganAide to let them know about their winning entry and got a very warm response:

“Woo-hoo! Thanks you guys! It was a pleasure to participate and read the cool stuff you two post. I love CSA and it is a great way to get others to see the wonderful food that can be made using our local produce.

Keep up the great job and thanks for citing my recipe as a winner!”

Please take a few minutes to check out the recipe and leave a comment for the VeganAide. Thank you to everyone who responded to the contest.

During the contest Margot cooked up a couple of CSA inspired dishes that we surely enjoyed. Here’s to those fresh summer vegetables!!!

That does look pretty good!

From which CSA/farm stand do y'all get your produce? Michelle and I bought a share from Middle Branch Farm in New Boston this year and it's been quite delicious so far.

I'm always looking for new and different ways to eat up the veggies. Thanks for hosting this contest.

Thanks so very much, guys!

I love CSA and I love your blog!

You will most certainly have better participation next time - I think a lot of people hang back the first time to see what others come up with.

I love the contest and hope you guys do it again.
