This week, I decided to add shallots into my delivery – they make such a great addition to homemade salad dressings. Since I no longer buy store-bought salad dressing for anything, it is good to have all the basics available in my pantry. Ingredients I always have on hand include brown mustard, organic lemon juice concentrate, capers, shallots, Veganaise and olives, along with any herbs I may have in the garden (dill, oregano, rosemary, mint, basil).
I also added red kale – it is such a beautiful deep purple in color and looks beautiful in the lentil and carrot soup simmering on the stove right now. I also have a new found fascination with cauliflower – but not to make Aloo Gobi – I still can’t bring myself to enjoy that dish.
Broccoli, celery and apples completed this week’s delivery – the fall season just snuck by me and before I knew it, it was December already – I feel like I have so many types of apples I need to enjoy before the season is over.
