Meatless Monday from the Farm

For Meatless Monday, I made meals featuring vegetables and fruits from my CSA farm share. Each new share is giving me at least a few new ingredients to try out.

Today I had blueberry oatmeal for breakfast, escarole with garbanzo beans for lunch, and “July Vegetable Stir Fry” for dinner (recipe below).

Breakfast: Blueberry oatmeal

Lunch: Escarole with garbanzo beans

Dinner: July Vegetable Stir Fry

Stir Fry Ingredients:

  • 2 heads of bok choy, sliced, stems and leaves separated
  • 1 cup of snap peas, sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 summer squash, sliced
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 5 scallions, sliced
  • 1 T vegetable oil
  • 1 T cashews
  • 1 t sesame seeds

Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1 T soy sauce
  • 1 T sesame oil
  • 1 T mustard
  • 1 t ground ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

Recipe Steps:

  • Prepare the sauce in a small saucepan by first sauteing the garlic in the sesame oil over low heat; then stir in the other ingredients until heated through and combined.
  • In a separate pan, heat vegetable oil over high heat, and stir fry the sliced bok choy stems and snap peas for about 3 minutes.
  • Add the bok choy leaves, summer squash, and zucchini, and stir fry for about 2 more minutes.
  • Add the sauce and the scallions to the stir fry, and stir to combine.
  • Top with cashews and sesame seeds.

I served my stir fry with brown rice and roasted beets. (I thought I didn’t like beets, but they were really good roasted.)
