This week we are heavy on the spring greenery: asparagus is in peak form and what a great long season for this delicacy; likewise spinach and braising greens (beet greens, arugula, kale, chard, mizuna). These vegetables came from Echollective Farm up the road in Mechanicsville, Iowa.
- (Vegan) Cheese & arugula Quesadilla & salsa with rice-asparagus-beet green pilaf.
- Tempeh rouge on seared spring greens with aloo gobi.
- Mixed spring vegetables in roasted garlic sauce with buckwheat-mushroom pilaf.
- Black bean & barley salad; roasted vegetables with mint.
