We had a tasty week, munching on all the yummy spring greens from our first week’s share. Some meal highlights:
And my personal favorite this week:
In the share this week: red and green lettuce, arugula, bright lights swiss chard, summer spinach, mustard greens, mizuna, chinese cabbage and garlic scapes. Though you can’t tell, Icky is definitely excited about the chard!!
My meal plan last week changed as the days went on, depending on our energy level, which greens needed to be eaten first and what the weather was doing. It was, however, valuable to have my weekly meal plan as a starting point on busy weeknights so here I go again:
Red lettuce – Hummus and veggie wraps with sprouted quinoa
Green lettuce – Strawberry goat cheese salad
Arugula – Pasta salad with garlic scapes and mizuna
Swiss chard – Chicken wrapped in chard
Summer spinach – Spinach and swiss cheese quiche
Mustard greens – Baked sweet potato with black beans and garlicky greens
Mizuna – Pasta salad with garlic scapes and arugula
Chinese cabbage – Asian stir fry with tofu
Garlic Scapes – Pasta salad with arugula and mizuna
What a bounty of greens! I think Icky might have the right idea though, after washing and spinning all those greens I’m ready for a nap!
