happy friday, y’all! this week we got our very first csa box of the year -yaaahooooo! inside we found: snap peas, fava beans, cabbage, collard greens, strawberries, spinach, parsley, leeks, lettuce and broccoli. so that, my dears, are what you’ll find in this weeks recipes! hint: that’s probably what’s in season near you as well, so be looking for these items at your store or farmers market- they’ll have traveled less distance to get to you!
monday: husband’s healing stew (to help mend his collarbone!)
tuesday: grilled veggie kabobs and a big ‘ol salad
wednesday: asparagus, snap pea and avocado pasta (leave off the parm!)
thursday: spinach spanakopita (our favorite this week!)
friday: orzo and snap pea salad with grilled fava beans
what was on your plate this week? any favorite recipes you’d like to share?
we follow a whole foods, plant based diet. the dinner ideas posts are a way for me to log our dinners, how we make eating this way easy, and hopefully inspire you to try some new things as well. they are always meat free, dairy free and often gluten free. you can follow the posts here, and i encourage you to share your favorite recipes with us as well!
