I've been getting spearmint and peppermint from one of my CSA shares.
What to do with it??
You can make Spearmint or Peppermint Infused Water
Thank you Penni Shelton of Raw Food Rehab
This batch of water includes
1 organic navel orange
I placed this in the fridge overnight and it was ready in the morning.
I waited to add the stevia to each glass.
Mint tea's help the body to stay cool in the heat. I try to keep some in the fridge all summer long.
Or make some Tabbouleh~
1 bunch of parsley~chopped fine
1 bunch of cilantro~chopped fine

Tonight we enjoyed this Tabbouleh with lemon Tahini dressing (tahini, lemon juice, Bragg's Liquid Aminos and water to thin)..I like to drizzle this dressing over my salad. On the table was garlic hummus and warm pita bread.
We also recieved Beets in our share.

1 bunch of beets peeled and shredded
