peas peas me

here's a quicky before my new box comes today!

Purple Hull Peas - here i cooked them up, then later turned them into chili beans, a thing i usually do with a can of Pintos from a recipe i got from Wellness Reboot - basically smokey chili flavored.  And i served them over a baked sweet potato

Here is a delicious marinara that my son made using the basil

here is the before pic of sweet potato and butternut squash, onion, lemon and olive oil before going in to roast till really soft!

Local Box 10/17/19 - Vegan Greenling Meal Plan

Here's a combo post - because wouldn't you know - that in between boxes i got really sick and didn't even eat for a bunch of days!

From that last box i did roast the sweet potatoes and squash as they lasted, and i made the purple hull peas.

Getting ready to go in the oven

So here's whats in the new box from last week:


Purple Hull Peas



Mustard Greens

Mesclun Salad Mix

Fuyu Persimmon

Sweet Potato

Key Lime

Already made up a batch of the peas and yesterday ate a bowl with some chopped up avocado and tomato and Tabasco, and today i had a bowl with chopped onion, nutritional yeast and Tabasco. Delish and quick.

Okra - I'm gonna roast these up too! I love roasted Okra.

Mustard Greens - sauteed up in my usual Good Ass Greens recipe

Persimmons - i'm not a huge fan of persimmons but have been having them every day in my new fave fall Green Smoothie - Almond Milk, half a frozen banana, a persimmon, a red apple, a tablespoon of peanut butter, spinach and cinnamon!

Sweet Potato - the ususal

Key Limes - a salad drssing from this Big List of No-oil Salad Dressings
