Sushi Salad with Soy-Lime Dressing

Dairy-free, Egg-free, Gluten-free, Low-FODMAP, Nut-free, Vegan

I can’t even begin to tell you how many limes I’ve eaten lately. I originally bought a bag of them at the store, because it was almost cheaper than buying a couple of limes individually. But then we started ordering seasonal organic produce online through Misfits Market , and limes must be in season because we’ve received a handful or so each week for the past two weeks. Thankfully, limes are versatile and make a great addition to a variety of dishes.

This sushi salad is probably one of my new favorite lime-inspired creations because it’s so flavorful and refreshing. It is perfect for a low-fuss weeknight lunch or dinner because it’s quick, easy and healthy.

I recommend serving it with some kind of protein, like grilled fish, chicken, tofu or nuts to make it a complete meal. Avocado, sesame seeds and cucumber slices also make nice additions.

With a portion of protein, this recipe serves two people.

One-Pot Potato Curry

Dairy-free, Egg-free, Gluten-free, Nut-free, Paleo*, Vegan

Yesterday we got our second shipment from Misfits Market, the organic produce subscription service we are trying out. I originally ordered their Madness box (which contains 18-20 lbs of fruits and veggies) thinking it would last us two weeks, but I was wrong. I guess we eat more fresh produce than I thought because I had to change my order to once a week!

Here’s what we got in our box this week.

I was pleased to see that we got several new veggies and fruits to try this week like strawberries, heirloom cherry tomatoes, butternut squash, and rainbow chard. We also got a couple turnips which I will be feeding to my husband because I just can’t stand turnips!

I decided to make a vegan potato curry using some of the limes, cherry tomatoes, and peppers that we received. Though it was my first time making potato curry, my husband and I both thought it was bowl-licking good and worthy of seconds. By itself, this curry serves two hungry adults and one toddler. Served with a side of rice, it will serve four or five people. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Note: If you follow a Paleo diet, substitute the garbanzo beans for diced chicken and you will have a quick, easy, and delicious dinner!
