Local Box Meal Plan: Nov. 1-5

We’re going to start putting the Local Box videos here to accompany the meal plans. Hopefully it’ll help you to have the video in the same place as the meal plan in case you have a question about what an ingredient looks like.

We can’t embed Facebook videos here, but here’s the link to this week’s video. If you don’t feel like watching, here’s the list of ingredients:

Granny Smith or Cameo Apples – Apple Country (or turnips)
Summer Squash- Naegelin
Green Beans – Animal Farm
Baby Arugula – Montesino
Cucumbers – Acadian
Green Shallots – Acadian
Bell Peppers – Acadian
Okra – Bradshaw
Marrs Oranges – G&S Groves
Spanish Black Radish – My Father’s Farm

So, I’m making:

Korean radish salad – Use your green shallots in place of the scallions here. This recipe’s at the bottom of a page full of Spanish black radish recipes, many of which look tasty. I also want to try the remoulade and the radish, carrot, and fennel salad with pecorino cheese.

Ginger beer cocktail – Marrs oranges often have seeds, so use a strainer when you’re squeezing the juice out of them. Leave out the apple if you get turnips this week.

Okra and green beans – This recipe looks tasty, but I’m also intrigued by the “Turn this recipe into a puzzle!” link. It literally turns the recipe into a puzzle – specifically, a word search.

Veggie pizza – Sauteed diced squash, bell peppers, and any other veggies you want until they’re tender. Spread red or white sauce on a pre-made pizza crust, and top with veggies, arugula, (and meat, if you want) and cheese. Bake until the crust is browned and the cheese is bubbly.
