So every week I get a CSA box full of yummy fruits and veggies from a local farm.  And each week, I sit down and plan out a menu and shopping list based on what we'll be getting in our box.  We've not vegetarian, but we eat vegetarian 3+ times each week.  My problem right now is that I'm just plum out of new ideas.  I'm looking for a new (vegetarian) recipe, instead of the same ol' stirfries and fried rice dished that we've eating the past few weeks.  I'm willing to listen to any suggestions, but I'd like to use at least one or two of the things from our box.

This week we'll have: Spinach, Strawberries, Snap Peas, Grapefruit, Salad Mix, Asparagus, English Peas, Spring Onions

Thanks so much!!

Last year when I bought way too many strawberries, one of my favorite things I made was a baby spinach salad with strawberries and balsamic vinaigrette. You could do it as a side, or add some crumbly cheese and/or toasted seeds or nuts and have it as the main meal.

What about asparagus soup? You could put spinach, snap peas, spring onions... just about any of the non-fruit stuff in there.

Thanks so much for the suggestions! 

RedMenace - The salad idea sounds really great - too bad I've already eaten most of the strawberries!  But it's just the beginning of the season and we're sure to get more in other boxes.  I'll just have to try it next time. Smiley

rockindancer86 - what sort of asparagus soup?  Like cream of asparagus?  I've never really tried asparagus soup before.  Can you recommend a recipe?

I often make spinach and strawberry salads.  I slice the strawberries and "marinate" them in 1/4 c olive oil and 1/4c vinegar.  They release their juices and that is what I use for my dressing.
