***UPDATE*** Greenling answered me on twitter (follow them @greenling) as to why the random items - the recent weather madness impacted crops!! so they had to scramble - i love that they can, and i'm always happy with whatever i get :)
i'm such a neglectorino - haven't posted since october - no excuses it is what it is!
Got my lovely box yesterday - it's funny, this time there was a lot of things on the list that I did not get - at all. the list in the box mentioned carrots, tomatoes, cress, cabbage, turnips... I got none of that - however I did get some things not on the list, so they replaced it all!! I don't feel slighted at all altho I would have loved some cherry toms.
here's what i got:
Lettuce - looks like a butter lettuce
and the renegade items:
regular radishes - red and white
alright here's the plan
Bok Choy - i just want to saute these with some mushrooms and tamari and ume vinegar
Cauliflower - Cream of Cauliflower Soup from the Plant Powered Families cookbook by Dreena Burton - it has Polenta croutons on it!!
Grapefruit - i love Green smoothies made with grapefruit
Radishes - i'm sort of over watermelon radishes so am passing them on to a friend who loves them, but the other little cuties - i ate some in a salad today but i've decided to roast the rest - thanks to a bunch of blogs online touting their roasted glory
Collards - New Years Day good luck food! My fave way to eat these are in collard spring roll wraps
Green Beans - Also from The Plant Powered Families Cookbook there is this amazing recipe that I've made before called Saucy BBQ chickpeas and Green Beans - made with a yummy homemade bbq sauce and roasted in the oven!
