I admit that this doesn’t make for the prettiest picture, but it was a delicious way to eat eggplant, onion, carrot and summer squash! I added some tofu for a filling vegetarian/vegan dinner. I always make my own sauce. I think the pre-made ones are usually too sweet, and this lets me adjust it how I like it. This time I went a little overboard on the rice wine vinegar, oops, but it was fine mixed with everything else and toned down by some brown sugar.

This is what we are seeing:
Melon (cantaloupe-like), arugula, yellow squash
Okra, butternut squash, onions
Sweet potato greens, basil, carrots
Eggplant, pepper mix
I am very excited about the carrots, I realized with the last bunch that they are ridiculously good with just some olive oil. I hope we’ll see some actual sweet potatoes soon, too.
In trying to use up all of Box 2’s squash, I thought of this and it turned out well! I also added basil from Box 3. I also tossed in garlic and some onion from Box 2, it was great. Served over left-over brown rice. I freeze my rice in single portions as soon as I realize I’m not going to use the whole thing, then it reheats really well in the microwave.
I made better use of this week’s box, I’ll give the report on that later. But the new one has just arrived, and I am excited!!! There are only two banana peppers this time, and I am sure I can make use of them. Heck, I somehow made use of the last batch.
This week we have:
Basil, Onions, Watermelon
Cucumbers, Peppers (Banana, Serrano, Bell), Tomatoes
Okra, Eggplant, Squash
I am especially excited about the okra, I’ve really come to like it since moving here. I also learned how to store basil AFTER the last bunch went bad, so hopefully I can use it this time.
Does anyone have tasty, unusual uses for cucumber or squash?
I actually think this might be better with meat, even though I prefer pasta lasagna only with vegetables! We accidentally didn’t have spinach, but that gave us a great reason to use some rainbow chard.
I used a mandolin to slice the zucchini, and my Designated Dishwasher put it all together. Lasagna is one of his specialties.
