One word: Neat.

My friend Carol just turned me onto a service in the Los Angeles area, The Farmer’s Cart. On Monday I placed an order, on Wednesday I received a box of goodies including:

  • 2 Yellow Peaches
  • 3 Valencia Oranges
  • 2 Hass Avacados
  • 3 Bananas
  • 1 Pt Grape Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1 Bunch of Green Onions
  • 1 Green Leaf Lettuce
  • 12oz Green Beans
  • 1 Red Russian Kale
  • 1 Bunch of Carrots
  • 1 Pineapple

In addition to the box of yum, they sent me a “Recipe of the Week”!

Labor-Light sautéed Red Kale And Julienned Carrots


1/3 pound of thinly sliced fresh kale leaves (4 packed cups)
2 tsp. canola oil
1 cup julienned carrots
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. ground coriander
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Pinch of Cayenne pepper, optional


– Rinse kale and remove stems, including large stem running through center of each leaf. Place a few leaves on top of each other and cut into thin strips. Repeat until all kale is cut.

– Add kale to pot of boiling water and boil, uncovered, 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.

– In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add carrots and saute 2 minutes. Add garlic and saute 1 more minute. Add coriander, salt and pepper (to taste) and cayenne, if using.

– Cook 15 seconds. Add kale and cook 1-2 minutes.

Guess what we’re having as part of our dinner tonight? You guessed it, Labor-Light sautéed Red Kale And Julienned Carrots!
