More Produce Boxes

We have been enjoying our produce boxes for the last couple of weeks.  This one was a doozie……

DSC00258It included eggplant, lettuce, micro greens, potatoes, tomatoes, figs, sweet peppers and Edamame.

I spent the first night looking up recipes for some of these items.  We started out with potatoes, onions and red pepper  cooked in foil packets.  The “meat” for the night were fried eggplant slices that had been dipped in egg and bread crumbs, and sprinkled with parmesan cheese.

Dessert was made by dipping sliced figs in sugar and then sautéing them until they had caramelized.   It was excellent served with ice cream!!!!

Planning for the second night meant that I had to find out exactly what Edamame was!!!   A quick Google search taught me that it was Soy Beans!!!

I started trying to shell them and found that it was incredibly hard.  So, back to Google, and found out that you should cover them with boiling water for 3 minutes, dunk them in cold water, and the beans pop right out!!!!  Hurray for Google!!!!

We used these the next day to make fried rice using onions, carrots, soy beans and rice.  We seasoned it with soy sauce and red pepper.  We fried more eggplants and enjoyed some of the yellow tomatoes as well.

Thanks for hanging in there with me……
