CSA Box: Eggplant, Peppers, Lemongrass, Greens, and Guava!

As it gets darker earlier, I decided to take this week's photos at the farm! Enjoy :o)
Eggplant were washed, pierced with a fork, and roasted until the outside was near black. I then cooled the eggplant and scooped out the middle to make a creamy spread with some roasted garlic.

The peppers were roasted and then added to some beans and rice for a flavorful dinner that doubled up as great lunch leftovers.

I made a syrup with the lemongrass and some fresh ginger and cane sugar. I have been adding the syrup to green tea in the afternoon for a tasty digestive aide.

The arugula braising mix was cooked up with the chard, beans and some quinoa and wrapped in steamed collard greens like burritos.

Kale chips!

A simple salad. Yum!

I just washed and sliced these babies in half and scooped out the middle for sweet desserts :o)

I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
