Local Box 7/11/13 - Vegan Greenling Meal Plan

oh summer - so much beautiful produce, and i love eating it mostly raw :)

here's the box:

Swiss Chard greens
Hon Tsai Tsai
Green Bell Peppers
Baby Carrots
Crookneck Squash
1015 Onion

Tomatoes - salads, and tonight i made sauteed onion and tomatoes and mixed it with lentils, delish, but I forgot to take a pic!

Basil - some kind of salad dressing - like this one Tahini Basil Salad Dressing

Greens - likely smoothies

Hon Tsai Tsai all the recipes i've looked up seem to be stir fries or sauteed, so we shall see what happens

Green Bell Peppers - probably salads or raw slices with hummus

Fennel - I may try grilling - supposed to have a veg grill fiesta next weekend with my brother and fam

Mangoes - i love Mangoes, so they will probably get gobbled up, altho the box came with a very delectable sounding Mango Salsa recipe that also uses the green bell pepper

in fact i used one this morning with strawberries, oats, coconut yogurt, and pecans, like a parfait

Baby Carrots - see Bell Peppers

Squash - maybe grill!


quicky post with last weeks makings:

on the fourth we grilled the corn! I also threw on the sweet peppers and some veggie dogs, I topped my dog with the grilled peppers.

Beautiful Tomatoes! I ate them topped on toast and guacamole, with some carrot sticks from the box before that that were still around!

Another item that was still around from the previous box that I didn't write about was a spaghetti squash - I roasted it and topped it with a delicious sun dried tomato sauce that used a box tomato. The recipe was from Christy Morgan's Wellness Reboot meal plan - I got to recipe test it - check out the plan HERE - and get a kick start on getting healthy and feeling great!

Beets, chard and spinach went in smoothies, Cantaloupe for breakfasts and snacks for me and Gabe! happy times
