Local Box 8/20/12
Nice usable box this week, here's the goods:
Purple Hull Pease
Live Sage Plant
So, yeah, the Tomatoes - I so rarely buy big tomatoes, I'm always getting cherry toms for salads, but I love them, and i have this amazing harvest bread from Whole Foods, so I'm just going to use them up on sandwiches and toast things like that.
Purple Hull Peas - i already cooked them up and I found in my Wild About Greens cookbook a Pinto Bean salad with watercress & Dill, that has Arugula in it, so I will make it with the peas instead, it uses a tomato too! Oh, and i will actually sub the Micro Greens for the watercress. yes!
Okra - after the huge success of the grilled Okra last week I think i'm going to do it again here at home and see if my kids like it! I predict my son will, my daughter won't
Yukon Potatoes - I just finally read through an issue of Vegetarian Times i've had lying around for weeks, and found a very tasty sounding Warm German Potato Salad - it has temeph as the "bacon"
Lemons - not sure - meyer lemon's seem so special, but I will probably make salad dressing,
Sweet Potatoes - i kind of just feel like steaming these and eating them in a rice bowl with kale and avocado. I also found in my cookbook The New Vegetarian Grill by Andrea Chesman, a recipe for Grilled Sweet Potato with Maple Lime Marinade.
