August 11, 2020
Dicot Farm is a small, but mighty certified organic farm just 25 miles south of DC! Their small, organic veggie bag for Tuesday 8/11 will be picked just days before delivery for incredibly fresh + nutritious vegetables.
The bag will include:
- 1.5 to 2 lbs spaghetti squash OR delicate squash: Our recommendation for spaghetti squash: carefully cut in half, scoop out seeds, rub with olive oil, salt & pepper, and roast face down in a 400 degree oven until you can easily pierce with a fork (usually 30-45 min). Use a fork to pull squash flesh into strands. Our recommendation for delicata squash: cut in half, scoop out seeds, cut into 1 inch slices (no need to peel it - the peel is tender and can be eaten!). Toss on a sheet pan with a little bit of olive oil, salt & pepper and roast in a 400 degree oven until you can easily pierce with fork (usually 20-30 min depending on size of slices). You may want to flip the slices halfway through roasting. Both types are great topped with fresh tomato sauce!
- 1 lb eggplant: Italian or Asian varieties 🍆
- Pint of cherry tomatoes: summer snacking 🍅👌
- 2 onions
- Tomatoes: 3 medium/large slicers
Dicot Farm is a certified organic farm in Waldorf, MD. They're just across the Potomac River from us - this means your veggies are traveling less than an hour to us! We met Meghan + Erik at the Greenbelt Farmers Market and Foggy Bottom Farmers Market. Dicot Farm is a small, but mighty operation.
