Week 20 Recipe Roundup

Recipe Roundup!

  • This Cilantro Noodle Bowl recipe uses a whopping 2 cups of cilantro so none of your beautiful herbs go to waste. Swap steamed carrots for the Romanesco or broccoli.
  • Did you know that the combination of lightly sauteed carrots, onions, and celery are known as a mirepoix (said like “meer pwah”)? A mirepoix is the seasoning base for stews, soups, and stocks. It is also the foundation of this delightful French-Style Lentil Salad that packs perfectly for brown bag lunches.
