This is what we can expect in our Standard size bin this week:
4-Fuji Apples - Apple Spice Cake
1-Ruby Crescent Fingerlings (1.5lb bag) - Indian Spiced Cabbage & Potato Fry
1-Green Onion Bunch - Vegetarian Fresh Spring Roll, Ramen Noodle Slaw
1-Red Cherry Tomato (pt) - Ziti with Spinach, Cherry Tomatoes & Gorgonzola
Vegetarian Fresh Spring Rolls - I love fresh spring rolls, but have never tried my hand at making them! Substitute your green cabbage for the Napa cabbage. If you can't find the bean thread noodles, I think I have seen the skinny rice noodles at both Hy-Vee and Target, easy substitute. One of my favorite Thai restaurants grinds up peanuts and serves along side their rolls as well - dip your rollinto the sauce, then the peanuts - YUM!
Indian Spiced Cabbage & Potato Fry - haven't made this one, but in looking through the reviews, it looks like you might want to double the spices for more flavor. I would also add a small can of tomato sauce and some coconut milk at the end, to make a creamy sauce.
Ramen Noodle Cabbage Salad - not really the healthiest thing you will ever eat, but you can make it much healthier by cutting down the amount of sugar in the dressing. I've always made it with green cabbage vs the napa cabbage suggested in the recipe. There's something about all the crunch from the cabbage - ramen - nuts - I love it!
Ziti with Spinach, Tomatoes, Gorgonzola Sauce - I'm not a fan of blue cheese, and if you aren't either, you can substitute good old parmesan instead - although you might want to add 1/2 cup or so since the flavor isn't nearly as strong. Another fun cheese to throw in here would be those little pearl mozzarella balls - have you seen them at your grocery store lately? Little tiny balls of fresh mozz - adorable.
