Local Box Meal Plan: Nov. 15-19

Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week? I’ll come up with some T-giving-appropriate recipes using Local Box ingredients in this and next week’s posts.

Here’s our full list, with the video following it:

Fuji or Cameo Apples – Apple Country
Butternut Squash- Gundermann Farms
Persimmons – Acadian
Sweet Peppers – Lundgren
Cilantro – Acadian
Limes – G&S
Sweet Corn – J&B
Oriental Turnips – Acadian
Yellow Onions – Naegelin
Beets – My Father’s Farm

I will be making:

Apple-persimmon cake – This would be a great Thanksgiving dessert. It’s vegan, too!

Tsimmes with beets, turnips, and beef – Tsimmes isn’t plural for anything, in case you were wondering – it’s a traditional Ashkenazi Jewish stew. I’ll use fewer carrots and more turnips here (or maybe even all turnips and no carrots, but I’m not sure it would still be a tsimmes at that point). You won’t use all of your beets in this recipe, so roast and peel the rest to use in salads during the week.

Butternut squash with ginger and cilantro – Would be a great Thanksgiving side dish. I love the addition of a little crystallized ginger, which you can usually find in the baking aisle.

Chipotle turkey cutlets with charred corn salsa – Ok, this may be better as a post-Thanksgiving way to use up leftover turkey, but you can just use chicken instead if you want.
