Certified organic produce from The Farm at Sunnyside, which is just 75 miles from Washington DC. The large veggie bag is great for the person who eats most veggie-filled meals at home or the couple who cooks some meals at home!
With Thanksgiving not far away, this pack is here for all your bountiful family meals. Filled with multiple pounds of carrots, sweet potatoes, rutabagas, and squash, the meal options are endless. A soup made from roasted, pureed kabocha and ginger is warming and filling. A kale salad with roasted carrots and a yogurt dressing, topped with parsley or celery leaf. Mashed rutabagas with thyme or rosemary and butter. And to finish it all off - a rich sweet potato pie!
The Large Veggie Box for Tuesday 11/24 will delight you with:
- 1 bunch parsley or celery leaf - Parsley is more than a pretty garnish, blitz up into a zingy sauce with garlic. Celery leaves are full of that refreshing celery flavor, toss with greens for a salad or sprinkle on roasted CARROTS.
- 1 bunch thyme or rosemary - Rosemary and thyme are quintessential fall herbs - pair with roasted veggies.
- 1 fennel - Anise-y and fresh, fennel's sweetness is concentrated when roasted. Pairs well with squash and meats.
- 1 bunch kale - Make a hearty salad with the SWEET POTATOES or toss with oil and salt, and bake some crispy kale chips!
- 1 piece ginger (2-3 inches) - Freshly dug, this is unlike the standard grocery store variety. Full of floral, acidic, and citrusy flavor, this ginger has very thin skin and is mild enough to eat raw.
- 3 lbs sweet potatoes - A classic fall flavor. Orange or purple, these tubers roast up beautifully to top a KALE salad or rice bowl.
- 2 lbs carrots - Crunchy and sweet, these carrots roast up beautifully or are great vehicles for dip.
- 2 lbs rutabagas - While not as familiar as the potato or turnip, rutabagas are fantastic mashed or roasted. Adding butter brings out their rich taste and texture.
- 1 kabocha squash - Super sweet from a few weeks of curing, this squash has a dense, orange flesh that becomes creamy and smooth after roasting.
The Farm at Sunnyside borders the Shenandoah National Park - read more about their conservation efforts on their website. We love visiting Sunnyside and learning about cover crops, compost, field rotation, food safety processes, and working with a seasonal farm staff - Stacey and Casey excel at all these things!
The farm may substitute veggies if they run out. This happens rarely, but does happen from time time. Produce is measured by weight, so quantity may vary slightly from pictures. Sorry, we can't offer substitutions right now. Sunny Side
