Week 15: Farm Fresh September

Hi there. Anna here, coming to you from inside my winter coat. Well nearly! I’ll probably be wearing it by next month. We’ve been getting some cool mornings and nights. I don’t think I’m ready for Fall yet.

Last week Alli, Joe, and I had a fabulous time devouring edamame. This week we’ll have two new veggies for you… bok choy and leeks!

Here is a simple roasted leek recipe: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipe/oven-roasted-leeks

Afterwards you can use the leek tops (the green parts) you trimmed off in a stir-fry or soup!

If you want to jar up some cayenne, jalapeño, habañero, and/or fish pepper deliciousness, here are two hot sauce recipes to get you started.

Cool nights means hot soup season is back. Okra in soup is a must eat! http://urbannaturale.com/meatless-monday-spicy-tomato-okra-lentil-soup
