BOX INFO–Fresh veggies always lend themselves to a great salad (Butterhead lettuce, bell pepper, cucumber, celery)…Waldorf type salad (celery, apple, add walnuts and raisins…both at Bee Healthy!)…Broccoli Mayo Salad (Broccoli, raisin, and green onion tossed in Veganaise)…Simple dressing of Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar…(add craisins or sunflower seeds for tart and crunch!)

Leeks are the special treat this week! Leeks are in the alium family, but are the mild members of the onion clan. They require special cleaning as they are buried in sand as they grow to keep the base white. Split the sides from top to nearly the bottom but keep it intact, bend back and run water over the insides to flush out sand. Once washed they can be sliced thinly and cooked for a great Potato Leek soup (recipes on line or at http://www.lloydcraftfarms.com recipe tab). We also have a Leek Cauliflower soup recipe that includes cashews or slivered almonds as a secret ingredient! You can use the green tops and the white bottoms. Experiment with them where you usually use onions–I think you will enjoy them! (I slice them and keep in the fridge to add to a meal with out the time for prep!)

Butternut Squash is a winter must! High in beta-carotene which we transform into Vitamin A, much needed for the winter months. Cook it ahead in the crock pot, oven, or slice and steam. We are all familiar with baked squash (cut, scoop out seeds, add oil to the cavity, cover and bake in the oven until tender). BUT it makes wonderful Bisque (creamed soup using winter squash)…we have several recipes under Recipes tab. I have one that is fast and easy using the precooked squash. Onions are a must…don’t be afraid to use the leek! Milk is not an absolute necessity…

Enjoy! See you Thursday Group A. One extra BOX this week for someone interested in giving it a trial run. AND REMEMBER–10% off the goodies at Bee Healthy with the purchase of your box! Continuing the 20% off on the Pints of Ice Cream, Almond Milk Ice Cream, and Coconut Milk Ice Cream…delightful!!
