Sent from member Chloe, “I wanted to pass along this recipe, as all of the stars were Stillman’s deliciousness. We added some beautiful chorizo (Stillman’s of course) and fresh herbs. A Clear Flour baguette didn’t hurt either. And it’s a great way to get through a lot of kale.

The CSA has been spectacular so far. Thanks!”
