What we’re lovin’ this week
- Chickpeas / garbanzo beans – we’re experimenting with dried chickpeas instead of canned. Surprisingly, dried chickpeas are more flavorful and worth the extra effort. I fry hydrated raw chickpeas in canola oil with a lot of salt and whole cumin seeds.

Did you receive this bulbous brassica in your CSA box? Or have you eyed it in the produce aisle and wondered what to do with it? Kohlrabi, a cousin to cabbage and broccoli, is sweet and mild.
Kohlrabi was a staple in Alex’s grandma’s garden. I can picture the beautiful leaves peeking out in spring after the cold Ohio winters. Grandma Jo’s Garlic Kohlrabi with Pancetta recipe. Grandma Jo used to grow kohlrabi in her vegetable garden in front of the

I can’t stop thinking about…
Our visit to Nederland, CO about a 30-minute drive from Boulder. I desperately needed a mini-vacation, and Alex wanted to get out of the humid 93ºF / 34ºC heat. We traveled to about 8,000 ft. / 2400 m altitude for cool breezes and even rain + hail.
Alex says he likes pretty pictures. Since my brain is fried this week, I’ll leave you with photos from our trip that I can’t stop thinking about.
As quickly as the storm rolled in, it cleared away. We decided to get out of Nederland downtown and explore the Caribou Ranch Open Space. The reviews promised beautiful wildflowers and some intriguing history about Stevie Nicks and Elton John recording songs near this open space.
We hiked through some wooded forests.
Finally, it was time to go home. We were greeted on our way out by this eye-catching conical plant with spiky leaves and tiny beige buds. I’ve tried looking him up but I can’t find what type of plant it is. Google thinks it’s a parasitic broomrape plant.
Do you know what kind of plant this is? If so, leave a comment to let us know.
