Oahu Fresh Ohana-how are you all today? We are well and stoked on this week’s bag–lots of organically grown goodness is coming this week! You’ll be receiving slicing tomatoes from Green Growers, lemongrass from Ho Farms, organic bok choy, organic mixed keiki greens, & plantains from Kahumana Farm, a mixed bunch of kale and swiss chard from Pacific Gateway Farmers, and citrus from Kama`aina Land and Plant Rentals Nursery. WOW! I’m excited…here’s what I am thinking about making:
Swiss Chard Pesto (For Black Bean and Sweet Potato Tacos!) I really want to try this!
Oven Baked Sweet Plantains These are great to eat with any meal…very good at breakfast!
Mom’s Pork Chops with Crispy Garlic and Lemongrass From the She Simmers blog, and a great way to use your lemongrass this week. Serve with rice as suggested or with a kale and swiss chard sautÃ©.
Cuban Chicken and Plantain Stew If you need more inspiration to use your plantains, this is a good meal to put together on Sunday and eat for the week. Create a salad with your keiki greens and tomatoes to go along with it.
Baby Bok Choy with Cashews a really good side dish to tofu, meat, or several other veggie dishes
Happy Local Eating this week!
