The Box Meal Plan: March 10th

Posted 3/12/2012 7:59am by Bill Pastellak.


Roasted Kohlrabi  

-Kohlrabi: the name actually means "cabbage-turnip", but this veggie tastes like a mix of turnips, cabbage, and cauliflower combined. The texture is akin to broccoli stalks, so this veggie benefits greatly from roasting by caramelizing the natural sugars and softening up the texture.

 Leeks with Anchovy Butter

-People either love or hate anchovies, so this recipe isn't for everyone. We've got beautiful organic leeks in the box this week, so I wanted to highlight them. This simple dish has few ingredients, so make sure to buy high quality anchovies and use good, unsalted butter.

Strawberry Agua Fresca

-
Water, Fruit, little bit of sugar...it doesn't get easier. Kids (and adults) will love this refreshing cold fruit drink. Feel free to use lemons or oranges for this recipe.

 Snow Pea & Sesame Saute

-This recipe is a perfect side dish for any Asian cuisine dinner. For a stronger sesame flavor, saute with sesame oil. I also recommend dissolving a quarter teaspoon of cornstarch in  a tablespoon of water and add with the soy sauce and honey. This will give the sauce a little thicker texture that sticks to the snow peas.
