Sometimes It's Easy Eating Green(s)

I think I've mentioned some sort of variation on this meal dozens of times, but really it is always a winner so I'll keep blogging about it. It was a beautiful evening, things have cooled off a bit from the 90's earlier in the week. We had fresh produce from the Market at the Square and Common Ground Co-op so it was a perfect night to eat our favorite meal. Josie kept exclaiming how good the meal was with every bite.
Garlicky kale topped with brown rice, garlicky tofu, and almond butter sauce (almond butter, ketchup, rice vinegar, tamari, garlic, ginger, dried red chili pepper, a little coconut milk, and water). Mixed salad greens, raisins, walnuts, and salad beans (we forgot to soak beans last night so I opened a can of salad beans which was an impulse buy the other day, just for this type of occasion) topped with Vidalia onion dressing. We can now shut our produce drawers...those darn things are way too small. Vicky and Greg brought over some ripe mangoes while we were cooking so the kids had those as an appetizer and white tea to wash it all down. Life is good!

Why people who care about the environment don't eat factory-farmed meat.
