CSA-Inspired Lunch

Yesterday, I decided to make lunch centered around the contents of our CSA box.
I started by roasting some veggies.

CSA Lunch 01

I cut the veggies into bite-sized pieces, tossed them with rosemary/garlic olive oil, and roasted them for about 35 to 40 minutes at 350 degrees.

Once the veggies were done, I tossed them with a some cooked quinoa, and seasoned the quinoa salad with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.

I also made a salad with the lettuce from the CSA box. I added some sliced radishes, spring onions, and an avocado. I seasoned the salad with a simple olive oil/lemon juice vinaigrette. So simple, yet so good. This was definitely the freshest salad I have tasted in a while.

For the boys, I also marinated some organic chicken in olive oil, lemon juice, a little salt, pepper, and fresh rosemary. Then I just sautéed it.

My brother-in-law is in town right now, and we really enjoyed our simple lunch. Good company makes any meal so much better! :-)

Questions: What was the highlight of your weekend? What was the best thing that you ate this weekend? We had a great time hanging out with my brother-in-law, and the toddler loves spending time with his uncle. It’s so sad he doesn’t get to see him more often… Best thing I ate? I had some REALLY good dark chocolate… :-)

Be well,
