What Do I Do With It?

I am fortunate enough to have access to a wonderful organic produce coop. Ever week, we get a big box full of seasonal, local, organic fruits and vegetables. This is an excellent way to make sure your produce is fresh and healthy, as well as keeping your corner of the world a little greener. However, it does present the occasional problem.

For example, you'll get a few things that you haven't ever seen before, or that you just plain don't know what to do with. Very few of us can walk through the the produce section of our grocery store, point out every single veggie, identify them and then tell you what to do to make them delicious.

So that means that once in a while, you have a fridge full of odd veggies- and you are presented with a big question...

What the heck do I do with THIS?

This week's meal is:

Cabbage Soup
Almond Gouda Salad
Turnip Hash
Sourdough Parmesan Croutettes
Chocolate Covered Frozen Bananas

The meal's grocery list is:
  • 4-5 turnips
  • 1 small green cabbage
  • 1 leek
  • 1 pkg white mushrooms
  • loaf of sourdough
  • 4-5 bananas
  • semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 head red leaf lettuce
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 2 oz aged gouda cheese
  • 1 jar lemon curd
