Greenling Local Box 2/24/11 - Vegan Mealplan

I can feel the season changing - Strawberries were in this box! And a Leek, another new veg i have never bought or used

Here's the List:

2 Avocados - thank goodness, been craving them
Cilantro - i am guess salsa is in in the cards
Crimini Mushrooms
Bok Choy - it's huge
Multi Colored Carrots - orange & purple

Strawberries will go in breakfast cereal & kid's lunchboxes - I'm sooo excited. I already ate some this morning and they are indeed divine.

Avocados & carrots in a spinach salad - oh and a strawberry or two, spinach strawberry salad is a classic, i think i will make my own balsamic dressing! I also really love avocado spread on toast with a dash of tobasco for a quick lunch or snack.

I really want to try a green smoothie, i have been hearing so much about them so will use some spinach & collards in that...
I think there's enough spinach to make this pasta from the wholefoods The Whole Deal newsletter - Linguini w/Spinach, Artichokes & Red Lentil Sauce -
There will be some whole wheat fettuccini left from that recipe exaclty enough to use the Cremini Mushrooms in Creamy Mushroom Fettuccine from the Appetite for Reduction cookbook again!

Bok Choy - Ginger Bok Choy & Soba from Appetite for Reduction - i know it's a lot of pasta this week, but i love it and the kids will often i have found i'm not in love with just sauteed bok choy so want to experiment around

Grapefruits - just enjoy for breakfast

Oh yeah PIZZA - i have some pizza dough i just bought at wholefoods, ready to make, & some Follow Your Heart vegan mozzerella that needs to be used so will throw a few leaves of spinach, a couple of mushrooms and the leek on there. With only one leek there's not enough for the typcial leek potato soup & i'm determined to shop as little as possible to emebellish the local box. I googled leek pizza and found that people sauted it before putting it on pizza - so Yum
