The organic box from Wwoof CSA seems to love including “mallow,” which is a traditional Korean green that is used in Dwenjang Chigae (fermented soybean soup) usually. But, for me who rarely cooks up a chigae at home, it’s not so easy to use. However, I’ve discovered a fabulous new application that I’m reasonably sure no Korean has ever tried: Green Smoothie! Mallow has basically a neutral flavor, so it’s kind of perfect. I’ve been putting 1/2 of the big bag in a single smoothie and have no ill-effects to report in stomach pain, or taste. Here are the ingredient’s from today’s smoothie:
From the organic box/ regular supermarket: Mallow/ Banana/ Cucumber/ Strawberries/ Blueberries (for best results, make sure they’re all frozen).
