Local Box Meal Plan: April 4-8

We’re getting lovely Easter egg radishes this week! Not only are they mildly flavored, the aptly-named radishes come in shades of red, pink, purple, and white. Here’s your entire list, video, and meal plan.

Pea Shoots – Acadian Family Farm
Green or Red Leaf Lettuce – Acadian Family Farm
Strawberries – Oak Hill Farm
Green Chard – Naegelin
Spring Onions – Gundermann Acres
Multicolored Beets – Animal Farm
Heirloom Garlic – Lund Produce
Romaine Lettuce – Tecolote
Easter Egg Radish – Animal Farm
Turnip Greens – Revolution Gardens

 

Braised radishes and spring onions – The original calls for icicle radishes, but just thickly slice the ones you get and cook until tender. Toss in some sliced spring onion bulbs to add flavor to this simple side dish.

Salads with roasted beets, pea shoots, romaine lettuce, toasted walnuts, and this strawberry vinaigrette – Just use regular balsamic vinaigrette if you can resist how tasty this dressing looks.

Fresh strawberry bread – I’m thinking I’m going to toast thick slices of this baby for breakfast. Yum.

Turnip greens and chard with green garlic – This recipe calls for prosciutto, which may be my favorite of the salted, cured meats. Leave it out if you’re anti-pork.
