Skip Chipotle tomorrow, this meal feeds four for $40, and it’s all local so you know the the food didn’t travel far. That means ultra-freshness, substantially reduced carbon emissions, and more money staying in our neighborhood.
To start: sauté ground beef or goat for 10 minutes. If using goat, a leaner, high-protein red meat, curry and/or cumin is a fantastic complement. Add curry/cumin to meat an hour prior to cooking. On Medium-high heat, brown the meat for a minute or two.
turn to Medium-low and cover. If you wish to add onion, throw them in just before the switch to lower heat.
Dress summer squash in a little olive oil with a sprinkle of kosher salt and perhaps a dash of garam masala. Toss in with meat with 8 minutes remaining.
Make sure all the pink is gone from the ground beef/goat. If you have a meat thermometer, you want it to reach 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
When done cooking remove from heat.
For a veggie alternative, oven-bake R&B organics eggplant and squash.
Cut eggplant into ½-inch cubes, dress in Isle of Salsa Chimichurri (Green or Red). Roast at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes. Cut squash into ½-inch cubes dress in olive oil and salt, bake for 25 minutes.
Heat up tortillas in a covered saucepan just above the warm setting, or throw in the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for no more than two minutes. If you have it, drizzle just a little bit of coconut oil and sprinkle salt over and under tortillas for added scrumptiousness.
Wash off the the freshly harvested fleet greens (they were in Audubon Park soil not more than 48 hours prior) and put them in salad spinner or shake in colander for a bit. Place greens in bowl and dress in chimichurri rojo.
If using the veggie option, top with Natural Goodness Microgreens for extra protein.
Now, take out those delicious, warm non-GMO corn tortillas and get ready to enjoy a delicious meal made from items produced by your neighbors. Better for your body, the environment, and your tastebuds!
