The Box Meal Plan: March 31st
Fava Bean Dip with Goat Cheese and Garlic Recipe
-Fava beans are only around for a short while, so i wanted to make sure I found a recipe that didn't make them an afterthought. Mixed with local chevre from Ryal's, this recipe is almost 100% local.Spinach Quiche
-Spinach quiche is a classic and perfect Sunday breakfast or brunch dish. Ignore the frozen spinach ingredient and (obviously) use fresh instead. To remove some of the water from the spinach which will make your quich soggy, first saute with a little bit of oil and garlic and then drain and squeeze out the excess liquid.
Pink Grapefruit Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette
-I've been hearing a lot lately about kale chips, so its due time I included them in the weekly box meal plan. This really isn't a recipe as much as it is dehydrating some leaves of kale. Regardless, it makes for a healthy alternative to potato chips.
-This simple recipe takes advantage of the super juicy grapefruit and strawberries that have (finally) hit their peak.
Feel free to nix the radishes if they are not your favorite.Kale Chips
