WWOOF CSA Organic Sampler Box

Thanks to Joon Lee, coordinator for WWOOF KOREA (Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms), and their new project called WWOOF CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), I was able to receive an awesome sampler basket full of organic vegetables, fruits, snacks, and other goodies. Before opening the box, I didn’t anticipate too much because letdowns can be a terrible way to start your Saturday morning, but lo and behold, the organic box was filled and packaged very carefully, with each item either pre-wrapped or labeled individually by hand. I really couldn’t be any happier with the box but here is my honest opinion about the sample box. The pros include: so happy they kept the “dirty” vegetables (i.e. carrots, potatoes, broccoli) in their natural state instead of cleaning and washing them beforehand; so happy the vegetables, fruits, snack packs were all fresh, labeled accordingly, and complimentary to  each other; so happy the box came on the day it was supposed to come! The cons: absolutely none!

Thus far, I was able to cook up two dishes using the organic produce—miso soup and Korean-style curry— and they both tasted great. Whether it has to do with the fact that is organic I’m not sure, but there is something to be said when you know you are eating quality, healthy, and sustainable food that promotes local farmers, their communities, and the environment. Full recipes will be posted shortly.

Korean curry works perfectly with all the organic vegetables that were in the box.

Ran out of dwenjang (fermented soybean paste) but this miso was a nice substitute.
