Local Box Meal Plan: July 11-15

Nectarines – Cooper Farm
Blueberries – Berry Best
Basil – Liedeker Farm
Potatoes – Acadian Family Farm
Assorted Peppers – Comanche Creek
Purslane – My Father’s Farm
Juliet Tomatoes – Hillside Farm
Eggplant – Fruitful Hill Farm
Figs – Texas Natural / Cooper Farm

Nectarine-basil lemonade – A refreshing summer drink.

Fresh fig and blueberry clafoutis – A clafoutis is a a custardy French dessert, and a perfect way to showcase figs and blueberries at their peak.

Eggplant, tomato, and pepper casserole – This recipe includes yummy sausage, adding a bit of heartiness. Use fresh pureed tomatoes instead of canned.

Grilled zucchini salad with purslane and tomato – Purslane has a pleasant lemony flavor. I find it works best raw as an accent in salads such as this.
