Meal Plan Week 9

Week 9: August 5th – August 9th

Premium Share Box:  Lettuce, Spring Onions, Summer SquashBeets, Cucumber, Japanese Eggplant and/or Italian Eggplant, Kale, TomatoesScallions, Radishes

The most exciting news we have this week is we’ve been busy harvesting our tomatoes from the high tunnels! We’re looking forward to a nice variety of heirloom tomatoes, some our trellised tomatoes are as high as the ceiling! We can look forward to more tomatoes in the coming weeks. In addition to tomatoes, the crew has been harvesting more summer squash, eggplant, and bell peppers from our high tunnels. They all go nicely together! The shares have had a variety of eggplant, most boxes get one Japanese and one Italian eggplant. They really work interchangeably in recipes, and this week includes an easy grilled recipe with fresh mozzarella. It’s a change up from the Asian inspired dishes, and a really great vegetarian dish that meat eaters will also love. The meal plan this week has a lot of options, and we’re including an extra recipe for pickled beets in addition to the 5 weekly recipes. We have a great post on making huge dinner salads – perfect for summer! Try using the radish greens with lettuce for a different texture and peppery flavor in a salad. We’d love to know what kind of salads you’re making, let us know!

Prep Tips

Planning ahead can make meals easy during the week. If you have time grab kitchen partner and do a little chopping ahead of time. During the week pull out your prepped items and our recipes are even easier. This week’s share includes a lot of meals like salads that are best prepped just before eating, but there are still a few things that can be done ahead for easing prep time.

Salad. Make the dressing and prep your protein in advance. The lettuce can be washed and torn into bite-sized pieces a day or two in advance. Wrap a paper towel over the top to soak up any excess moisture.

Garlic Kale Pasta.  Wash and chop the kale up to 3 days in advance.

Summer Squash Tian. Make the breadcrumbs in advance. If you have extra bread, make a large batch and store the leftovers in the freezer.
