Happy New Year Box

I got this box thursday then promptly went out of town for New Years Eve so this post is a little delayed.
A very green leafy box is the perfect start to a new year where the best intentions of health are always the strongest.  I've been very salad-y lately so this was very welcome, here's the list:

Mustard Greens
Baby Spinach
Green Leaf Lettuc
Watermelon Radish
Sweet Potato
Meyer Lemon
Yellow Onion
Butternut Squash

see! The first four items are leafy greens!

Butternut Squash - thie recipe for Lemony Quinoa with Butternut Squash looks so good and i can use the lemons too 

While it's still cold - i want to make more soups so this recipe for Collard Green & White Bean soup looks good and i will just use the Kale instead. That's the joy of greens, they are mostly interchangable!

I think i made this recipe last year - Balsmaic-Glazed Chickpeas & Mustard Greens but it's so easy, and i love an excuse to mix beans with my greens

Watermelon Radish again! I didn't take a picture or post about it but i did make this Sweet Pickled Onion Watermelon Radish Salad for the Christmas meal at my parent's house. It was a huge success with the family so hot dog i'm gonna make it again! I ended up eating a bit of the leftover mixed into my leftover kale salad mmmmm

Sweet Potato - this recipe for Vegan Indian Sweet Potato Kidney Bean dry Curry sounds so good to me right now, plus i can us the spinach in it - but there was a recipe that came with the box for Sweet Potato Oatmeal Breakfast Casserole which sounds divine too....we shall see. I often just end up baking & mashing them anyway

Speaking of Spinach - i got hungry writing this post so just made up a really bizzarre but delicious plate for breakfast - i had some coconut curry tempeh strips that had to be used up, so i sauted half a onion, then added the tempeh, some garam masala, curry powder and a splash of coconut milk, then some chopped up spinach, salt and pepper and red pepper flakes.  Really really tasty!
