Hi everyone! It’s officially the last of summer, but that doesn’t mean great produce isn’t available! We still have the tastes of summer for you in this week’s bag:
- Ho Farms lemongrass
- Ho Farms tomatoes
- Pacific Gateway Farmers eggplant
- Pacific Gateway Farmers kale (1/4lb) and one cucumber
- Mari’s Garden lettuce
- Kama`aina Land avocado
Here are a few suggestions that will help you to enjoy the last hints of summer in your meals this week:
Vegetable Soup with Sriracha, Lemongrass, and Tofu This recipe calls for spinach, but you can easily sub in your kale and even add a few halved Ho Farms tomatoes.
Coconut, Lemongrass, and Lime Soup from Thrive Energy Cookbook Just 20m to prepare this one, you can make it at the same time as the veggie one above and freeze some of both for later.
Tom Yang Light Martini a martini made with rum, and lemongrass…can’t wait to try this one!
Quick Eggplant and Tomato Saute Use your Ho Farms tomatoes instead of canned.
Eggplant Fries Make some burgers or steaks and have these healthy fries along with, you’ll be glad you did!
Avocado Cream Sauce This would be great with the eggplant fries, on top of a salad, or over zucchini noodles.
