Ideas for Food Prep:
- Roast the beets to have on hand
- Go ahead and pre-wash your arugula or spring mix! Make sure you’ve got salad dressings on hand.
- Trim the greens off your radishes and turnips. Wash the greens, so they can be cooked spur of the moment. Or cook them and have them available to add to recipes.
- Wash the turnips and radishes to have on hand for snacks.
- Consider pre-baking your pumpkin. It makes it easier to use spur of the moment when you’re making dinner

Roast Curry Okra
Set your oven to 425 degrees. Take your okra. Wash and trim the tops. Toss with olive oil (I usually use around 2 tablespoons, but I don’t measure). Add a couple of pinches of salt and around a tablespoon of curry powder. Put on a sheet pan. Do not crowd the okra or it will steam instead of roasting. Roast for 15-20 minutes, stirring the okra every 5 minutes. When it is nice and toasty brown, it’s done.
Have a wonderful week, everyone!
gf: gluten free
Please read! If a recipe can very easily be made vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free using simple substitutes like non-dairy spread, vegetable stock, gluten free pasta, gluten free soy sauce or a small amount of gluten free flour, or by leaving out an ingredient, I’ve coded them with that in mind. If they include things like mayonnaise, eggs, milk, honey or large quantities of flour, I haven’t coded them as such. I don’t have experience using things like egg substitute, non-dairy cheese or subbing in gluten-free flours. Please double check the ingredients for your own safety!
