Fillet with Joi Choi, Tomato Salad, and Whipped Potatoes

Tonight's supper used three of our CSA ingredients: Joi Choi, Cherry Tomatoes, and Italian Basil. Now we only have 1 cucumber and 2 small butternut squash left from last week's delivery. The butternut squash should be ready to eat this week.

We buy our Fillet at Costco. Like most cuts of meat from Costco, we cut them in half and freeze them. I simply salt and peppered both sides and grilled them for about 4 minutes on each side.

The potatoes were small red potatoes. I peeled and boiled them, then added butter and sour cream and whipped them.

The Joi Choi was simply prepared by steaming it for 10 minutes, adding salt and pepper, and drizzling it with a little sesame oil. The flavor was very nice without being too strong.

The tomato salad had the following ingredients:

Cherry Tomatoes
Mozzarella Cheese
Balsalmic Vinegar

The beautiful cherry tomatoes were washed and sliced. I also washed and sliced the basil. I have sometimes used fresh mozzarella for this recipe, but I had tons of block mozzarella on hand, so I just cut it into small chunks (about 1/4 inch cubes). Finally, I drizzled a little balsamic vinegar on top of the above listed ingredients. This dish is best when it can sit for at least an hour before serving so that the flavors can mingle.

Finally, I plated it all together, and we had a delicious supper!

Tomorrow night I am taking the night off from blogging and from cooking so that we can eat some leftovers and I can rest and prepare for Tuesday's new CSA delivery.

  1. That looks absolutely wonderful!I have often thought of joining a CSA but was afraid I would be inundated with vegetables and would not be able to use them fast enough. You have proven me wrong! Some of the CSA websites I had visited offered recipes but, it looks as though you are doing great on your own! The post on cooking beets was relateable as I attempted the cooking of fresh beets this summer and had to call my daughter for directions on what to do with the little dickens!
    Keep up the good work!
