Local Produce Box: Week 8

There was so much produce in our box this week that I had trouble fitting it all in a photo...which is not such a terrible problem to have, especially since our grocery bill for the week was much lower.
In this week's box we received: cabbage, beets, red leaf lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, garlic, potatoes, zucchini, onions, beans, carrots and raspberries.

With so much delicious produce on hand, it was quite simple to cook for the week. This is what I made:
(from left to right)
  1. Tomato Parmesan Quiche - a simple and tasty dinner, delicious served with a salad (recipe courtesy of The Forest Feast).
  2. Zucchini Pesto Tart - this is a favorite family (recipe from The Forest Feast cookbook).
  3. Carrot Slaw - simple and delicious (recipe courtesy of The Forest Feast cookbook) and it keeps well in the fridge for a couple of days. I made it on the weekend and we will have it for lunch several days this week.  
  4. Beans and Tomatoes - recipe courtesy of last year's box
With the cabbage, I made the same cabbage steaks as last week. This was one of those recipes that I was a little hesitant to try - it is a little unusual - but I am happy to say that everyone likes them.

I roasted the beets, the potatoes and the zucchini. And I chopped the onions and froze them for later; there have been so many onions over the last few weeks that I am not sure what else to do with them.

As we move into August I am excited to see what else is coming; I'm hoping for more fruit and no more onions....
