Harvest Box for February 19, 2010

Here's our Harvest Box for February, 19:

I love cooking with leeks and managed to come across a few new leek recipes this week. Being salmon lovers, we are looking forward to trying out this Salmon with Leeks. Another great option would be to make a Leek Tart and serve it as a nice light meal with a side salad. And these Oven Roasted Leeks look just divine!

I think that beautiful rainbow chard is just begging to be sauteed into this Sauteed Swiss Chard with Raisins and Pine Nuts . . . or perhaps those who like things with a bit more "bite" might prefer this Spicy Chard with Ginger.

I came across a couple new recipes for avocado that incorporates pasta. They are both fantastic vegetarian dishes. Why not try mixing things up a bit with your avocado this week and trying this Pasta with Avocado and Spinach or Pasta and Avocado Salad. Delicious!

A friend of mine mentioned that her favourite way to eat avocado is to cut the avocado in chunks and add tomato and red onion with some fresh ground pepper and sea salt. She adds it as a topping for sandwiches, burgers, salads, etc. Sounds perfect to me!

Enjoy your week!
