Local Box 2/6/14 Vegan Greenling Meals -

these two weeks flew by and another box is coming thursday so I neeeed to get this out there :)

this is what i got:

Valencia Oranges
Persian Limes
Rainbow Carrots
Turnips with Tops
Butternut Squash

I was super bad at taking photos this week but here is a fab salad i made with the lettuce, carrots, microgeens, and I made a dressing with cashews and lime juice

I used the spinach sauted with garlic and onion in pasta

the Oranges went in some fab green smoothies for breakfast

I chopped up the butternut squash and roasted them with a bit of olive oil with the carrots too, intending to make a soup but i ended up just eating them because - delicious

i still have the turnips and want to make this Chickpea & Turnip Ethiopian Stew

Also still have Kohlrabi! and i like the look of this Sauteed Kale with Kholrabi - it uses limes too

A bit of this a bit of that

this was the winner of the week - Roasted Cauliflower and Nacho Cheeze dipping sauce!  I made the Cauliflower from This Recipe from Fat Free Vegan but I used a different cheeze sauce recipe - it's one I learned in Marshall from chef Miyoko who is the Vegan Cheese Whisperer. so so so so good

Here is the dip from Wild About Greens - it used Dill, Avocado, Lemon AND Arugula - perfect

Here's a salad with the Mesclun Mix, avocado and a salad dressing I made and used Lemon Juice in

This was a Lentil Soup I made from a mix of recipes and at the last minute I added a bunch of the Spinach all chopped up so it just wilted in the warmth. Perfect on the freezing night we were having!

Morning oatmeal using the tangerines - I cooked the oatmeal in some of the tangering juice, grated some zest on top and had a few segments on the side.

Another use of the Spinach - i just sauteeed some up with onions to make a taco with refried beans. Easy peasy!
