Local Produce Box: Week 20

Another great box this week: beets, sweet potatoes, potatoes, onions, apples, carrots, tomatoes, butternut squash, cabbage and watermelon radishes.

I was feeling a little experimental this week and tried a few new recipes:
(from left to right)
  1. Loaded Sweet Potatoes - this recipe is from Oh She Glows Everyday. In the past, when I have had sweet potatoes on hand, I have either made a soup or simply cut them up and roasted them. This recipe offered something very different and I was excited to give it a try. The bean mixture on top was delicious, but what really made this dish was the avocado sauce (green). 
  2. Butternut Squash and Kale Risotto - Butternut squash is another vegetable that usually becomes soup in my kitchen, but not this time. This dish was delicious, time consuming with all the stirring needed to cook the rice properly, but delicious all the same.
  3. Watermelon Radish Salad - I was so excited to see watermelon radishes in our box because I have had this recipe from The Forest Feast earmarked as 'one I want to try' for years - I could just never find watermelon radishes in the grocery store. 
Great food again this week thanks to an inspiring box of delicious produce...love it!
