CSA Share Ninja Rescue 2013: basil, peaches and peppers

Happy Monday -- the day we share the CSA Share Ninja Rescue, a weekly feature in which you tell me on Fridays what veg you got in your CSA share box (or found at the farmers' market) that you don't know what to do with and I'll give you a whole bunch of recipe ideas on the following Monday.

This week we're pleasing both coasts: west coast readers want help with an overabundance of peppers and peaches (we're jealous here in Vermont!) and east coasters have a glut of gorgeous green basil.


  • Peach and bean pasta: It may sound a little strange but it is an oh-so-yummy combination
  • Peach cobbler: Described by one of The Ninj's followers as being "like angels are feeding you clouds of peach-flavoured unicorn tears." With an endorsement like that, how could you not try it?
  • Blueberry-peach muffins: A lovely breakfast muffin that's perfect for this awesome summer fruit combination


What's going on in your garden? Do you have tomatoes yet? Leave a comment: The Ninj wants to know.


  1. I love your CSA rescue posts!
