Amaranth micro greens & more! local box 8/23

What a great box this week! but first check out this amazing TLT i made with last weeks gorgeous tomatoes and lettuce:

Wholefoods fourteener bread, vegannaise, mustard, a dash of tabasco, tempeh bacon, tomato, lettuce and red onion. yeah, i had this 3 days in a row.

I also did make that baked beans in the acorn squash recipe and it was EASY and delish but i forgot a picture.  I may make it again this week.

This week:
Amaranth micro greens - gorgeous, purple/red color

Fresh Pinto Beans
Bibb Lettuce
Cherry Tomatos - look at all the colors, so beautiful

Red Bell Pepper
Yukon Potato
Winter Squash (Acorn)

Amaranth - i had to research these  a bit, turns out the more mature leaves are better in stir fries, but these micro greens will work in a salad so I think i will try that, and get max nutrition

Okra - roasted or maybe grilled now that it's not as hot outside, i mean its still hot but somehow feels more bearable

Pears - I need to do some heavy juicing here coming up, so the pears will be my fruit addition to the veggie green juice

Peaches - i'm addicted to peaches in Wheatabix right now with coconut milk and a dash of cinnamon.

Bibb Lettuce - i could only imagaine a salad but the box came with a Bibb Lettuce and Pea Soup recipe that sounds weirdly good :)

Cherry Tomatoes - salads, or sauteed or popped in the mouth - i love these

Red Bell Pepper - again salads! I just bought tofu and and some hatch chiles to make tofu scramble so may add these and the tomatoes to that!

Yukon Potato - i recently made roasted potatoes with Marmite and think I will do it again.  SO addicting

Acorn Squash - maybe this Roasted Acorn Squash Soup - or i may just roast and use chunks in a salad or quinoa
