I just picked up my first order from Eating Out of the Box this season and it resulted in a lovely impromptu dinner.
Here’s what came in my *small* box:
1 bunch assorted color carrots
1/2 dozen Asian pears
2 small heads of lettuce
1 bag arugula
2 bags of Asian-style greens
1 additional bag of what I think is bok choy
1 bunch of red radishes
This box was gifted to me for some assistance I’m lending to the program this season. I also ordered a couple more pounds of Asian pears and 5 bunches of lemongrass, which I immediately froze for future use in teas and soups.
So excited for the lemongrass!
For dinner, I sauteed one of the bags of Asian greens with some soy sauce, oil, ground ginger and ground black pepper. I added this to some kelp noodles (I’ll leave these out next time; they were an experiment).
Here’s a kickin’ Asian salad/dish topper for you:
1 handful raw cashews
1 healthy dash Sriracha
1 healthy dash sweet chili sauce
Saute the above together and prepare to be wowed.
Back to Eating Out of the Box. If you haven’t read about them on my blog before, check out their site. Easton residents can order fresh produce, meat and more through this service on a weekly basis — no season-long signup necessary. That is a huge advantage to this program. The produce is organic and everything is produced locally. I highly recommend you try it out!
