How'd we do?

Here's last week's veggie haul, and how we incorporated each item in our meals this week.

Green beans - A quick and easy tofu and green bean stir fry with teriyaki sauce.

Radishes - Atop open-faced cream cheese and radish sandwiches.  Try this!  If you've never had radishes and cream cheese, it's a match made in heaven.

Collard greens - Grilled (!!!!!!!).  Nothing short of bewitching.

Zucchini, torpedo onions, & winter savory - Grilled veggie and kidney bean salad, with grilled bread.  A great summer dish, with the refreshing flavors of orange and sherry.

Potatoes - Roasted.  Plain and simple.  Recipe here.  We ate these alongside the cream cheese and radish sandwiches.

Arugula/spinach mix - A balsamic strawberry salad.  This was easy and pretty delicious.  Slice your strawberries and pour a tablespoon or two of balsamic vinegar over them and let them marinate for about 5 minutes.  Toss with the greens and a mixture of olive oil, dijon mustard, and salt and pepper.  Add goat cheese and almonds and you are ready to go!
Make this now: Hands down, it's the grilled collard greens.  A funky preparation pays off in the flavor department!  Smoky and spicy and tangy - a very unique recipe and method!
