Meal Planning Monday

Roasted Romanesco Soup with Pesto from Coco Kelly: As the short Baja Arizona winter comes to an end, we’re seeing incredibly cool-looking heads of Romanesco pop up at farmers’ markets around Tucson. Although pureeing romanesco will undoubtedly rid of its mesmerizing shapes, the parmesan, shallots, and parsley pesto in this soup will surely make up for it!

Honey Ginger Tofu and Veggie Stir Fry from Pinch of Yum: The best part about this hearty, sweet, caramelized-veggies-filled stir fry (besides the mind-blowing flavors)? Its versatility. Can’t find asparagus? Use broccoli and peas! Don’t have farro? Use rice! Hate tofu? Leave it out or replace it with chicken, or fish. The world is your oyster.

Hearty Winter Sandwich from Edible Baja Arizona: Who says you can’t have sandwiches for dinner? This (roasted sweet potatoes+winter greens+fried eggs) is basically dinner between two pieces of really good bread. And can you argue with any dinner that can be eaten without utensils? We recommend serving it alongside roasted potato wedges or a simple salad.

Winter Minestrone & Garlic Bruschetta from Barefoot Contessa: Step 1) Scour farmers’ markets and CSA shares for minestrone ingredients. Step 2) Head to Barrio Bread and buy a baguette five baguettes. 3) Revel in the glory of local food.

Goat Cheese and Sun Dried Tomato Penne from Edible Baja Arizona: Pasta is good. Pasta coated in creamy goat cheese, hunks of sweet sun dried tomatoes, garlic, and broccoli is life-changing.
