Boston Organics, Week 2

So it's been 2 weeks since I got my first delivery from Boston Organics, and I think I've done pretty well. I used the Swiss chard and mushrooms in hot pot last week, added the broccoli stems to fried rice and florets to roast chicken, used the potatoes in clam chowder, lemons in lemon bars, and avocado in avocado ice cream, braised the collard greens with bacon, poached the pears, and ate the rest of the fruits. One banana was pretty brown by the time I got to it so I peeled it and froze it so I can use it for banana bread in the future. And I have 2 red onions left which I'm thinking about using to make French onion soup. Luckily, onions keep for a bit.

This week's Boston Organics delivery

This week I received 1 rio star grapefruit, 2 royal mandarin oranges, 2 pink lady apples, 2 minneola tangelos, 2 red navel oranges, 2 anjou pears, 4 bananas, 1 bunch broccoli, 1 salad tomato, 1.5 lbs. yukon potatoes, 1 box white mushrooms, 1 bunch kale, 1 bunch scallions (yeah, I forgot to add them to the picture because I had already put them in water), and 1 box Munchin' Mix sprouts.

So I can make eggs and tomato over rice with the tomato and scallions, add the mushrooms and kale to hot pot next week, stir-fry or roast the broccoli again, eat the fruit, and maybe make some gnocchi with the potatoes (or more duck fat potatoes, yay!). But what da heck do I do with the sprouts? They're not real bean sprouts (which I love) but just sprouted adzuki beans, lentils, and peas. Any ideas?

  1. I googled "Munchin mix sprouts" because I do boston organics too, and have no idea what to do with them either! I was like.. do I just eat them out of the box??
