The Box Meal Plan: April 17th

Pasta with Fava Beans, Kale, and Bacon

-Sticking two starches in one dish (pasta & beans) is often a recipe for disaster, but not here. All the ingredients in this dish complement one another and end up creating a tasty pasta dish without the need for a tomato or cream sauce. Use high quality olive oil, Parmesan, & bacon since this dish utilizes only a few ingredients.

Zucchini Bread

-I never quite understood who came up with the idea to put zucchini in a spice cake, but I imagine it was someone trying to get their kids to eat more vegetables. Regardless of its origin, zucchini bread is a wonderful as a breakfast pastry or  a (healthy-ish) dessert. Substitute raw sugar for white and use local pecans from the box to make this dish almost entirely local.


 Quick Strawberry Jam

-Strawberries can go from perfect to mushy and overripe in no time flat, so it's important to use them right away. This recipe for strawberry jam takes 10 minutes and will keep in the fridge (covered) for up to two weeks.


 Brown Rice Pudding

-Good rice pudding is a nice treat everyone once in a while. I'm sure everyone has a nice supply of the Cajun Grain rice in your cupboard, so this recipe can start to put a dent in it. Rather than dried fruit as the recipe recommends, top with the quick strawberry jam.
