Tuck Clinic’s first annual CSA program with Glade Road Growing is in full swing and we couldn’t be more pleased with our shares so far! We’ve received everything from carrots to sugar snap peas, rainbow shard to turnips.
The most important part of taking advantage of our CSA program is knowing how to use all the veggies we may not have used before. Here are a few ways our doctors are eating better with garden fresh vegetables.

If you do not have a spiralizer, you can use a peeler.
Sprinkle zucchini with about 1-2T kosher salt and let sit for about 15 minutes till they sweat. Rinse, and dry in a dish cloth.
Sauté oil, garlic, tomatoes for a couple of minutes, add the zucchini, cook an additional 5 minutes on medium heat, add the splash of wine, squeeze of lemon, and fresh basil mix for another few seconds. Place on a plate and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
You can add more oil to sauté with, more cheese to top it off, but this is 2 Weight watcher point value for the whole thing. Serves 2.

Preheat oven to 350°. Toast pistachios on a rimmed baking sheet, tossing once, until golden brown, 8–10 minutes. Let cool, then coarsely chop.
Meanwhile, cook sugar snap peas in a pot of boiling salted water until no longer raw but still very crunchy, about 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl of ice water and let sit until cold, about 3 minutes. Drain, pat dry, and thinly slice into bite-size pieces.
Saute sliced summer squash/zucchini in a hot skillet with a little oil until just starting to caramellize.
Blend herbs, oil, vinegar, mustard, and 2 Tbsp. toasted pistachios in a blender, adding water by the tablespoonful if dressing is too thick, until smooth and the consistency of heavy cream. Season with salt and pepper.
Toss squash, peas, broccoli, pea shoots, quinoa, and remaining toasted pistachios in a medium bowl to combine. Drizzle salad with dressing and toss again to nicely coat everything; season with salt and pepper.

Cover and Saute in pan for three to four minutes until bok choy is bright green. Stir and cover again. Cook until tender another 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat.
