Nate made this dinner so I can't take the credit for it, but I had to blog it! He made a pesto walnut salmon on a bed of bok choi and greens, with a side of quinoa with tomatoes and a sweet potato, turnip and carrot mash. It was really realllly good!
I don't know all the details of how he made it, but here is the general idea, and he can comment if I get something wrong. For the salmon, he baked it in the oven, and it looked just like the picture. Spray a dish with cooking spray, lay down a bed of greens (pretty much anything will work, the bok choi was really good, also I think there was arugula and/or spinach). Put the salmon on top, add pesto sauce, onions and any other seasonings, then add walnuts on top and bake for 30 minutes or so.
The mash is fairly simple - boil sweet potatoes, turnips and carrots (or any root veggies of your choice). In this case Nate threw in some sliced ginger while it was boiling. Then mash everything up with a masher - don't use a hand mixer! Add in seasonings of your choice and a little milk and butter, and yum!
Nate prepared the quinoa based on package directions, but added some chopped tomatoes in for the whole cooking time, to add a little color and flavor. Easy, good idea!
It was a great, healthy, filling meal, and there were lots of leftovers. And it used a lot of CSA veggies! The sweet potatoes, turnips, bok choi and greens were all from my CSA bag.
