Well, I have definitely been using the veggies from box 3, I just haven’t posted about it yet. The thing is that I was so busy enjoying the foods that I didn’t even get the pictures taken!
So, starting with the things I shared at a fourth of July party:
First up, tomato cucumber salad with basil. It was something like the ones at the following links:
This one adds avocado and cheese, which sound like fun additions, but I didn’t use red onion like she did for breath reasons
This one from PeTA is actually a lot like what I did, but I added some olive oil as well. (sidenote: who knew they had recipes??)
Next, we have grilled okra. I never thought to grill it before, but it was great! Just brush on olive oil and it was fantastic.
Eggplant made a lovely zaalouk, you can find a fun video by a Moroccan woman here, or you can read it on her blog here
Serrano peppers – Most of them have been used, in various dishes that need spicing up.
Bell peppers – I have been eating them straight for lunch or as a snack with hummus.
This box has been really successful so far, I might even finish it before the next one arrives on Tuesday!
As a parting thought, here is the double zucchini muffin from the last box. I just doubled the zucchini called for (3 cups instead of 1.5) and even Designated Dishwasher liked them!
