Well that’s a beautiful looking lunch! Yum.
This week you will be enjoying:
- Lettuce mix
- Red Potatoes
- Large Red Beets
- Small Kabocha Squash
- Navel Oranges
- Large Yellow Limes (yellow=ripe)
- Large Haas Avocado
- Fennel Fronds
- Large bunch of Cilantro
- Calendula and Lavender
What to do with all that aromatic cilantro? Why, Cilantro Lime Soup of course!
Fan of quinoa? Not a fan of quinoa? Try this recipe either way.
Here’s a simple combo for the beets and broccoli
I am a fan of steamed kabocha squash because it’s natural delicate flavor is delicious on its own. I’m also, however, a fan of deserts. Here’s a kabocha squash pie with a little lime in the crust for a refreshing flavor combo.
we usually add chard to an egg scramble, or mix it in with lettuce, or sauté it with veggies on hand. Here’s a recipe that highlights the chard, and who doesn’t love the complex flavor of caramelized onions!? Yum
If you’re up for trying pink salad check out this Potato-Beet-Celery Salad
Love pesto? Try a Fennel or Cilantro and Lime pesto this week. Toss the fennel or cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, cashews, and salt into the blender then use your delicious sauce to top fish, chicken, eggs, or veggies.
Marinade ideas that would be good on chicken, fish, potatoes, or veggies:
- Orange, celery, lime, fennel
- Orange, Calendula, Lavender
- Lime, Fennel, Cilantro
