Good Thymes - Local Box 5/19

Loving sthe summery changes!

Again i got the mystery (to me) herb in my box - i put it on the ever faithful Twitter and turns out it's Lemon Thyme! I could tell it had a lemony smell. Excited to experiment - i am not "good" at just knowing what herbs go well with what, but i think i may make a vinagarette with it, and also a tofu marinade for baked tofu.

ok the list:

Red Beets
Salad Mix
Summer Squash
Green Beans
Sweet Potatoes
Heirloom Tomatoes
Lemon Thyme

Here's the recipe for Lemon Thyme Marinade for Tofu - the recipe calls for regular thyme but you know...also i don't grill my tofu, i bake & broil it.

I have a bag of quinoa so will use one sweet potato in this recipe Spicy Sweet Potato & Quinoa Salad

This Sweet Potato Salad with Apple & Avocado also sounds amazing & summery

Beets - juice some, roast the rest for just adding to my mixed salad greens

Heirloom Tomato - i found a recipe on a piece of paper at wholefood for heirloom tomato & cucumber salad, and they had a whole display with all the ingredients, so i got what i was missing and will post that later!

Summer Squash - cannot resist this Ridiculously Easy Roasted Yellow Squash & Onion recipe from Fat Free Vegan

Green Beans  - my kids tend to like these just steamed, rare of them, so i may not mess with a good thing and do anything with these.

Kale - juice it. or this from Vegan Yum Yum - Colcannon - it has Thyme too!

Mango - just eat!

Shallotts - not sure yet, i guess use as onions here and there
