The Purple Plan for the week of Feb. 20

I had a hard time coming up with recipes I wanted to make this week. Said and done, I’m trying some new recipes and going back to some favorites. Here are some meals with local ingredients that I’ve come up with for the week.

Do Ahead Preparation

Beet, Cheddar, and Apple Tarts, Salad
Pizza for the kids
Local Foods: Beets, Apples
Beet, Cheddar and Apple Tarts
I am putting this under Do Ahead Prep because I will roast the beets ahead of time. The recipe calls for slicing thin raw beets, but I’m concerned they won’t cook enough and would rather place roasted beets on the tart. I’m thinking of serving these like mini pizzas with salad on the side.

Regular Preparation (in about an hour)

Chickpea Burgers, Rutabaga Fries
Local Food: Rutabaga
Rutabaga Fries
I never got to the Chickpea Burgers last week and the Rutabaga Fries were a hit, so we are having them again.

Fusilli with Crispy Kale and Ricotta
Local Food: Kale

Spicy Potatoes and Peas with Chicken
Local Food: Potatoes

Oven Fried Chicken, Sautéed Carrots, Dinner Rolls
Local Food: Carrots
Oven Fried Chicken
Sautéed Carrots

Extended Preparation

Pasta and Bean Soup with Kale, Dutch Oven Bread
Local Food: Kale, Onion
Dutch Oven Bread
The extended prep is for the bread, it takes 20 hours.
