Quick springtime side dishes

With CSA harvests up and running, dinners are getting easy again. Here are two easy sides I made to go with roasted chicken. Basically, add any protein and grain, and you are set.

Steamed or sauteed Asian spinach. I used a whole bouquet of tatsoi, it shrinks down a lot in the cooking. Sautee garlic scapes, the white part of scallions, and tamari/soy sauce. Steam with a little water. Salt. Ginger and maple syrup would be good.  Chop scallions to toss on top.

Lettuce Cabbage—this delicate leafy Napa Cabbage variety is like lettuce and celery all in one. Chop the stems as celery and the leaves are lettuce. Toss in some peeled slices of kohlrabi or salad turnips. Add dressing of your choice. I like an asian sesame dressing, or a ginger vinaigrette. Chop scallions to toss on top.
