Turnip up! local box January 26th

Somehow the whole time i've been getting the local box i've managed to not ever get Turnips! Either they have been in the box the week i don't get the box, or sometimes items are listed as "this or this", like this week on the list of local box contents it says "golden globe turnip" or "black radish" - depends on what comes in on the day of your delivery i guess.  So yay, a new thing to try that i've never made!

Here's the list

Mustard Greens
Collard Greens
Green Onion Bunch
Dill Bunch
Golden Globe Turnip
Sweet Potato

Mustard Greens - i don't love them to pieces so will rely on good old Nice Ass Greens recipe again as this makes anything taste good.

Avocados - i always have these around for salads, spread on toast and today i actually put half of one in a smoothie. There was a recipe in the box for baked sweet potato with Avocado Dill Topping that sounds good and easy and i can use veganaise or vegan sour cream in place of regular.

Broccoli - well the kids love it just plaine steamed but i found a recipe in Appetite for Reduction for Orange Scented Broccoli wich would use the oranges too! yeah.

Collard Greens - there's a recipe in Appetite for Reduction i've always wanted to try - Ye'abesha Gomen (Stewed & Sauteed Collards) - it cooks the greens for a long time which is not usual in vegan cooking but the combo of ginger & garlic, onion & red pepper flakes sound so tasty

Green onion - salads, tofu scrambles ect..

Oranges - maybe in the aforementioned broccoli,
Grapefruit - i already ate one for breakfast, it was so good!

Dill - as well as that avocado dill topping i found a Creamy Dill Sauce in the Skinny Bitch Ultimate Every Day Cookbook. I am determined to use this cookbook this week as i never have! i'm a cookbook hoarder.

sooo - From the Skinny Bitch cookbook i found Seitan Sweet Potato & Onion Hash that looks amazing AND Black Bean & Yam Tacos that i have to make, will use an avocado with those too

Turnips - i had kind of a hard time finding a turnip recipe that appealed to me but LOOK! This one has a sweet potato in it AND Dill - Score! Mashed Sweet Potatoes & Turnips

Stay tuned
