Eat more vegetables.
Theme: Soapbox and Sauce

Inspired by the article in last week’s New York Times, “Scientists Warn of Perilous Climate Shift Within Decades, Not Centuries” by Justin Gillis, we thought we would get on our soapbox about the power of the vegetable to help save the planet. Marco Springmann of Oxford University posits that transitioning to a more plant-based diet could reduce food-related greenhouse gas emissions by 29% - 70%, which are reported to cause about 25% of all greenhouse gases. In other words, by eating more kale you are helping yourself and the polar bears…so spread the word “POWER TO THE PRODUCE”!

This week you will be receiving TOMATO COULIS, a fancy term for tomato puree. By the way, making your own puree/coulis is a pain in the butt so we are saving the day. To make the absolute best and most impressive pasta sauce: Sauté a finely chopped onion and a couple of garlic gloves in good olive oil. Add the tomato puree, half the bag of cherry tomatoes, and cook them down. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Polenta is a really simple and quick side dish or vehicle for any of your sauces, vinaigrettes, and pestos. Slowly add the polenta to boiling water, stirring continuously until it starts to thicken to avoid any lumps. Serve on its own hot and topped with butter, or cool it for a couple hours on a greased sheet tray, cut into strips, squares, or cakes, and reheat on the grill or deep-fry. Storage: airtight container in the pantry.
