Swiss Chard & Bok Choy - Local Box 3/8/12

a beautiful bunch of chard in this weeks box - with rainbow stems! And a really cute bok choy - guess i will get creative with greens!
When i opened this box i tested my daughter on each item, she didn't recognize those two greens! i think i'm going to do this every week :)

Ok, contents:

Bok Choy
Swiss Chard
Lettuce - beautiful dark purple

I've already used the beautiful avocado & tomatos in salads with the lettuce.

I made a delicious juice with the grapefruit and some strawberries in my juicer, then put them in a blender with ice and made a slushy drink.

I will use the Swiss Chard & Parsley in Sweet Potato White Bean Soup from The Vegan Slow Cooker by Kathy Hester

Bok Choy - this Bok Choy & Tofu Stir Fry looks good

Rutabaga - MASHED - i did this with the last box (forgot to blog and post pics) and it was sooo good, just cut up, boiled, then mashed with Earth Balance, salt, pepper and a splash of ume plum vinegar.

It's SXSW week so if i don't get this all done before wednesday it's likely none of it will get eaten! There's a recipe that came with the box that stir fries all the greens, bok choy, chard and spinach in one dish, so if that does happen i will whip this up! I will need the vitiamins and energy for the marathon that is SXSW
