I just found out about the most amazing thing! Did you know that there’s an organic produce delivery service in Kansas City?! Well there is! It’s called Door to Door Organics and I’ve signed up to receive their weekly bitty box which is a $26 box of assorted fruits and vegetables.
Door to Door Organics is offered in other cities across the U.S. but it's new to Kansas City. Once I signed up for my bitty box I adjusted my preferences and listed produce that I don’t want to have in my box and put some of my favorites on the "prefer" list. I got an email on Sunday letting me know when my box would be delivered and what would be inside, I could substitute individual items as well... which I did! I was supposed to get fennel but I substituted celery instead. So here's what was delivered to my doorstep on Friday
2 Navel Oranges
1 pkg Strawberries
2 Red Peppers
1 Romaine Lettuce
1 Celery Stalk
... all for $26, organic, and delivered to my doorstep! I am in love!
I couldn't wait to use the zucchini and red pepper in my favorite vegetable medley! I love to eat this mix as a side dish but I also LOVE to wrap these veggies in a flour tortilla with a little sour cream for a dinner all on it's own, it's like a vegetable fajita! Seriously I love this vegetable medley, I get giggly and excited whenever I make it!
1 Pepper (I usually use green but had a beautiful red pepper from my organic box)
1 package of mushrooms
1 tablespoon olive oil
Sprinkle of salt, pepper, and italian seasoning
Optional- Flour tortillas and sour cream
I coat a large skillet with the olive oil and set it over medium-low heat. I toss the vegetables into the skillet as I cut them starting with the onion and then the pepper (they take more time to cook than the other vegetables). Cook the onions and peppers for a few minutes, you want them to soften up before you add the rest of the vegetables. Next add the chopped zucchini and mushrooms. Stir the veggies and sprinkle on the salt, pepper, and italian seasoning. They will cook for probably 5-10 minutes, once the mushrooms have softened and are starting to turn brown it's ready to eat!
