Local Box 12/27/12 - Vegan Greenling Meal Plan

I feel lucky that my delivery day is Thursday so I didn't miss a box due to Christmas! whoohoo

Ok here's what I got this week:

Mixed Greens bag
Collard Greens,
Green Garlic
Green Cabbage

Mmmmmm - Avocados - i eat them ALL the time - i put them in my daily smoothies, I eat them on salads, which i will do with these greens, I eat them on tacos. So glad for these!
I think the Mixed Greens may also make their way into a smoothie.

Broccoli - check out this Broccoli with Garlic Butter & Cashews - may be a nice change from the usual steamed

Collard Greens - In my Wild About Greens cookbook by Nava Atlas i found a tasty looking Quinoa with Greens and Chickpeas - I can use the Green Garlic to stir fry the Collards first.

Parsley - I will try and find a space to add this creatively, some may go in a smoothie/juice also, parsley is so healthy, it has anitoxidants, it's anti-imflammatory, it has vitamin C and A, and more

Cucumber - Salad, Smoothies & Guinea Pig food - i'm sorta craving a quinoa with cucumber, bell pepper, carrot, onion and balsamic

Cabbage - My daughter is currently going through an Irish obsession phase, so maybe, just maybe, she will eat this Irish White Bean and Cabbage Stew if i "market" it to her correctly. It's worth a try!
It only uses half a head of cabbage so I am going to find a coleslaw recipe with the remainder. I always crave coleslaw

Grapefruit - smoothie - duh

Turnip  - this Autumn Vegetable Puree sounds sooo good and I love the idea of how nutrient dense it is with the three vegetable pureed together.

  1. Yum this all sounds good. I need to pick a CSA or service. More veggies and more organic is on my resolution list.
