Eggplant Dip (Babaganoush)

Produce Box Vegetables: Eggplant

“You can use a food processor to make baba ghanouj, but take care not to make it too smooth; this is supposed to be a rustic, slightly chunky dip.”

Goat Cheese and Mushroom-Stuffed Acorn Squash

Produce Box Vegetables: Mushrooms, Acorn Squash

“One of the main challenges with vegetarian food is making sure a dinner feels hearty enough. Here, you’ve got an entire half of an acorn squash per serving, stuffed with mushrooms, spinach, bread cubes, and goat cheese. In other words, it’s not shy on flavor, and the portion feels, well, like dinner.”

“You can serve this refreshing mixture as a salad, as a topping for whole grains or as a salsa with grilled fish or chicken.”
