This week’s Farm Share will most likely include:
Tomatoes, Onions, Garlic, Peppers, Broccoli, Kale, Summer Squash, Cucumbers, Basil
**This is the week that includes July 4th. Vegetable pick-up runs as usual at both locations on Wednesday. Please let us know if you are on vacation and won’t be picking up your veggies. Thank you!
Cucumbers are divine when topped with hummus and capers: Slice cuke in half, scoop out a bit of the center to make a ravine (eat the part you scoop out!), fill the ravine with hummus, top with capers. Devour!
Tomatoes and Peppers should become your new salad, replacing a lettuce/salad mix/green salad. The recent heat wreaked havoc on our lettuce/salad mix, but we are serving a tomato-based salad these days, dicing tomatoes and peppers and tossing with a bit of olive oil, sea salt, and garlic if you prefer. Also, finely sliced basil adds a delicious twist.
Summer Squash is dangerously delicious when battered and pan-fried. You can use a combination of dipping in egg and Panko bread crumbs, or you use another pre-mixed batterto coat the squash (cut into disks or sticks). Or you can make them into Vegetable Pancakes using this recipe. Adding basil to this recipe is also perfect.
Broccoli is seriously best when roasted.
Kale is delicious when made into a sweeter salad like with Kale and Strawberry Salad (you can use frozen since they aren’t in season here anymore), or Kale with Strawberries and Avocado, or with granola in this recipe for Kale with Nutty Granola Croutons.
