Fun Appetizers using leftover CSA bounty
I am looking for fun appetizer ideas halloween themed or not using my costco/csa overabundance. I don't mind buying more ingredients, but I don't want to see anything go to waste!
1 lb spinach
1 bunch chard
6 roma tomatoes
1 lb brussel sprout
2 bunches celery
Also kicking around:
wedge blue cheese
log goat cheese
2 lb chicken spicy italian sausage
Would love any ideas!
Bonus points, I also bought a can of batter blaster pancake mix and like the idea of some sort of pancake based app..
Do you have any prosciutto? Quickly blanched asparagus wrapped in prosciutto and either grilled or baked is amazing. You can use either of your cheeses in there if you'd like. Similarly, quick glazed sprouts wrapped in bacon and broiled would be awesome. You could make small pancakes, top them with either of your cheeses, and then top with some caramelized tiny diced apples and pears.
Spinach, chard, make mini quiches like monovano said.
Make a lush blue cheese dip for the celery and radishes
Roast the tomatoes and top with goat cheese in crock and serve with crostini
Saute the pears in butter and brown sugar and tooth pick them to cooked italian sausage coins.
Shred the brussel sprouts and a julienne of apple maybe some almonds for a light salad
I'm out on the kiwi except maybe decoration :) lol
A couple more easy ideas for you:
How about a hearty soup with the sausage, chard, white beans and/or pasta. Add onions and other veggies to taste.
A simple salad of thinly sliced celery and shaved Parmesan, dressed with lots of lemon juice and olive oil. You could thinly slice the radishes as an addition.
