CSA/Farm Market Get Educated Recipes

Butter Beans and Edamame Dip (vegan)/Stout Braised Goat Rib Stew

by Kate King

Kate King, one of our USA Farm Share members on Capitol Hill, writes the awesome blog “Lettuce Eat Together.” Over the weekend she whipped up a number of delicious meals using ingredients that she and her husband, Casey, got in their share from us.

Check out this  vegan edamame and butter bean dip recipe . We still have plenty of edamame from Epic Gardens and butter beans from Tara and William Fowler, so you can replicate it! Enjoy.

And here is Stout Braised Goat Rib Stew, featuring goat ribs from Goats R Us in Blackstone, VA. They make the most heavenly chevre, camambert and feta. We have recently gotten goat ribs in stock, and people are curious about how to cook them. Let us know how you have done your goat ribs, so we can share.
