Box 1 Round-up

This post idea blatantly copied from A Good Appetite. Go read their site, it has awesome food on it.

Box 1 Round-up
Box 1 from the Fall Groundwork Organics CSA

Meals from Box 1 were Portabella Mushroom fajitas with roasted poblano sauce, broccoli tofu cashew, raspberries and whipped cream over vanilla wafers, chili (forgot to take picture), a wonderful apple blue cheese walnut salad, and shrimp quiche. I also roasted the sweet peppers for a future use, and will use up the potatoes, squash and cilantro in the course of next week.

I had picked up some bay shrimp at the farmers’ market last week, and was thinking that 1 pound was waaaay too much for eggrolls, so I decided to make a quiche with about a half pound of ’em.

I used guyere, the leeks from the box, shallots, and a bit of fresh parm. As a change of pace, I made substituted a half cup of cornmeal for the flour for the crust. I think the crust turned out a bit crispier than I’d like, but I’m going to try playing around with it because it gave the crust a nice texture otherwise. This is the first “meat” quiche I ever remember making, and we make quiche every month or so.

CSA items used: just the leeks. They really added to the flavor though.
