Local Box Meal Plan: Jan. 10-14

This week, I’m especially excited about the red Russian kale. If you’ve never had it before, be sure to give it a big sniff before you cook it – it has a wonderful, floral fragrance.

Tangerines – Orange Blossom
Green Onions – Naegelin
Red Beets
Various Lettuce – Acadian
Daikon Radish – My Father’s Farm
Bok Choy – Naegelin
Cauliflower – J&B
Apples – Apple Country
Red Russian Kale – Acadian
Butternut Squash or Avocados

I’m making:

Pork tenderloin stir-fry with tangerines and chili sauce

Herb-poached shrimp with cauliflower couscous and brown butter – This has a long ingredient list, but looks really yummy.

Braised kale with pancetta – Keepin’ it simple. The kale shines here.

Roasted butternut squash with sauteed beets and beet greens – You can leave out the squash if you get avocados instead.

Apple-avocado salad with tangerine dressing – This would be good without the avocados if you get squash instead.
