CSA Box Week #6: Roasted Squash and Smoky Maple Green Beans

1-038

So this week has been fairly uneventful. The CSA Box has the usual items. I kept things simple. I steamed the broccoli, blanched it, then froze it for later use.

Shouldn’t apples be part of the main dish too, sometimes? It’s that time of year for apple crumbles and apple pies, apple muffins and apple cider.

I’ve had this cookbook for years called The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen by Donna Klein. It has really fantastic looking recipes that use fresh herbs and vegetables. Being a student at the time this book was given to me, I felt taunted by the pages of delicious homemade pasta sauces (calling for 3 cups worth of fresh herbs) and side dishes that […]
