1. Cook with quinoa with 1 1/4 cup water and a pinch of salt. Boil, then lower heat to low, cover with a lid and simmer for 12-15 minuets.
2. Cut the lemon into wedges. Using half of the lemon, squeeze the juice into the vegan mayo, add a pinch of salt, and stir. Set aside.
3. Rinse and drain the hearts of palm. Dry well, and lay on a cutting board. Using the palm of your hand, press each piece flat. Then mix together the rice flour, corn starch, and seasoning. Add 1/3 cup of water and mix.
4. Coat the hearts of palm in the batter and pan fry in several tablespoons of oil until golden brown. Flip and brown on the other side, then transfer to a paper towel lined plate and season well with salt.

↠ My Tips:
1. When you get your box, take out produce like avocado and peaches, instead of refrigerating them. That way they have some time to ripen and will be perfect for your meals later in the week! You can also place fruits like peaches in a paper bag to ripen faster! More tips are included in the recipe book.
2. Also, save the recipe book. It will come in handy down the line! I dog-ear the pages with my favorite recipes and still make them from time to time.
3. Sending a monthly box to a family member or friend is a great gift idea! Especially if they’ve said they want to cook at home but don’t know where to start 🙂
