Local Box 1/10/13 - vegan greenling meal plan

So sad to have missed writing a post last week! I got side lined by the dreaded sickness.  That combined with a 4 day trip to the west texas desert meant zero cooking.

Before I left, I did manage to make that Broccoli with cashews and garlic sauce, and it was freaking delicious.  So much so that I ate the entire recipe Broccoli and Cashew recipe

I did eat avocado and some collards in my smoothie, and the cucumber and mixed greens in a salad. I figured the turnips, cabbage and collards would be ok when I got back. Then the days long fever came so that was that.  Sad.  Drizzle the guinea pig was happy though

Sooooo, on to a fresh new box!

Flat leaf parsley
Bok Choy
Sweet Green Peppers
2 cute little red leaf lettuces
Easter egg radish

I already used the Bok Choy in this very tasty and very healing Greens And Garlic soup from my idol Colleen Patrick-Goudreau . It's in her book the Vegan Table but you can also so it in this video.

Garlic and Greens soup

Was perfect for my final step to 100% and I gave some to my still sick next door neighbor.  I hope it helps

I also cut up one of the green peppers along with some carrots and broccoli I had to have some handy snacks at the ready. They really are sweet!

Mizuna and Parsley are going to go in another recipe from Wild about Greens by Nava Atlas - Pasta with Asparagus, Arugula (Mizuna sub) & Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Red leaf lettuce and radishes = salads

Sunchokes - I will roast them again, that was too good

Beets - so so so many options, sometimes i add them to a vitamix smoothie, grated in a salad is amazing. The greens are good too. I have some recipes for juices with the beets and their greens and ginger which sounds good in this time of sickness everywhere.
The greens can go in Lentil Soup with Greens & Tiny Pasta from Wild About Greens
Basic roasted beets and carrots are always wonderful to have around - i guess we shall see!

Ok - have a great week!


  1. Hello! I love your blog and really appreciate you taking the time to make all these entries. I'm a new vegetarian with hopes of becoming vegan and need to get more familiar with varieties of produce. I'm highly considering signing up for the Greenling box. My only fear is not knowing what to do with 70% of everything in it. That's where your blog will come in handy if/when I sign up. Thanks! :)

  2. thanks so much! The greenling local box has helped me so much to expand my tastes and recipes, i love it.
    So yes, my blog can help, and always the power of google. I always am reccomending cookbooks too. so many great ones
