I am the egg-plant
but first look at these gorgeous and cute eggplants! I'm never a huge fan when I make something with eggplants myself but I'm determined this time
So from last box check out these amazing grilled sweet potatoes! Marinated in Lime Maple marinade from "The New Vegetarian Grill" cookbook. They were so so good, I had them with a grilled veggie burger - and I had them the next day in a little taco with avocado and chipotle tabasco!
Then i did make the butternut squash soup in the vitamix, very easy, soaked cashews overnight then made cashew cream in the vitamix, roasted the butternut sqaush, sauteed onions carrots and celery, put it all in the Vitamix, and blended till it got warm. It never got really hot, and it seemed like from blending so long it got a very light frothy texture which is different. I ate it sprinkled with pumpkin seeds
Onto this week:
Sweet Potato Greens
Tomatoes, microgreens and Lettuce will be in a big salad! And I would like to find a salad dressing using the Meyer Lemons
Sweet Potato Greens - I will probably just saute, the box came with a recipe, onions, crushed red pepper and soy sauce, sounds good
Sweet Potatoes - I'm having a hankering for a curry made with sweet potato, and I know I've made one before so I'm going to scour my cookbooks and fine one!
Red Potato - I did make mashed potatoes with the ones from the last box, basic with coconut milk, Earth Balance and Follow Your Heart vegan sour cream. So with this batch I found a Potato Salad with Lemon Basil Dressing in my Blissful Bites cookbook.
Eggplant - something like this sounds perfect! Skillet Eggplant and Lentils with Almond Parmesan from Fat Free Vegan
