Box 5 report card

30 Aug

This is terribly late, I know, but I am going with ‘better late than never.’ Plus, luckily I had noted in the Box 6 post that I had used most of the ingredients from 5.Box 5 report

 

The problem might be remembering what exactly I did with each one.

Canteloupe: Sliced and eaten

Okra: Used in Levantine Okra Stew. A friend suggested the recipe, and here is what mine looked like:

Food from the Box | Lebanese Chicken and Okra Stew

Might not be pretty, but was very tasty! And did not have the slimy/gooey texture that okra can sometimes give stews.

Sweet potato greens: Part went into a smoothie and part… I distinctly remember cutting up, but neither me nor my Designated Dishwasher can remember what they went into. It worked, though!

Sweet peppers: Eaten with hummus and tuna or blended up with water to reconstitute dry soup. It made it really good, and added a lot of flavor that the soup kind of lacked on its own. Would also be great with condensed tomato soup!

Butternut Squash: Put into a Lamb Tagine (thick stew), delicious.

Spearmint: Preserved three ways! Unfortunately, the ‘mint extract’ way was quite a spectacular failure. It tastes like minty grass, and looks like lake water. I have no idea what went wrong. I’ve already used the dried mint in tea a few times, and that is a huge success.

Eggplant: Sliced, tossed in oil & balsamic, and roasted. I had directions from my friend, who didn’t mention peeling them first. You should really peel them, the skin was inedible after being roasted.

Yukon potatoes: Latkes!

Onions: Latkes! Also chopped and put into the cavity of a whole chicken, which was cooked in the crockpot.

Jalapeños: Used in the whole crockpot chicken. Another went into the tagine, I believe.
