Friday Favorites with Naturally Ella

This Friday we're talking with  Erin of the blog, Naturally Ella. Erin is passionate about seasonal, local produce and creates vegetarian meals with her CSA ingredients. She recently added a section to the blog that illustrates that eating seasonally is easy. I can't wait to try her breakfast tacos with kale-cilantro chimichurri or her roasted carrot spring rolls. Watching her ravioli video inspired me to make my homemade ravioli stuffed with kale pesto that very night. Follow along with Erin as she's also a member of The Food Matters Project and make she to read her new what I'm craving series here.

Erin, what's your favorite food?
Erin: I have a slight (read major) love of chickpeas. I use them for everything: snacking, salad topping (or salads themselves), hummus, tacos, loaded potatoes, stir fry, soup thickener and I'm evening learning to sprout them. I buy them dried, cook them up every weekend and toss them in at least one meal a day! 

Thanks Erin! 

Speaking of CSAs, we went to a cocktail kickoff for our CSA last night to get a tour of the farm and meet other members. It was great and I scored some leeks. Yes! Can't wait to cook those guys up in soup or maybe just by themselves. 
Have a great weekend, everyone!
