CSA Challenge: Week 5 - Team Peas

This week's CSA box brought more summer staples, plus a couple of new items: Japanese eggplant and cherry tomatoes so crisp and taught they explode with flavor when you bite into them. Getting more of the same veggies week after week, and figuring out new ways to prepare them to prevent boredom, lies at the heart of the CSA challenge. We'll see what Team Peas does with this week's share.

Here's who got what:

Ann, senior food editor: Japanese eggplant, eggs, peppers

Cindy, associate editor, healthy living: cucumbers, field peas, green beans


CJ, administrative coordinator: heirloom tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, squash


Jason, editorial assistant, culinary student: okra, corn, soybeans
