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!
While one might usually think of Spring as salad season, Fall is a pretty good contender as well. Bitter greens and kales are extra sweet this time of year and with the addition of roasted root veggies, the salad can be a whole meal! Or cook up your favorite grain and mix with roasted sweet potatoes, cauliflower or broccoli, fresh sweet peppers, shredded carrots, and a creamy dill dressing. (Or a zingy parsley dressing with garlic and lemon juice). Eat with some toast and cheese and call it a night.
The Large Veggie Box for Tuesday 11/3 will delight you with:
- 1 bunch parsley or dill - Parsley is more than a pretty garnish, blitz up into a zingy sauce with garlic, lemon juice and olive oil. Dill is light and refreshing, sprinkle on top of a salad.
- 1 bag greens mix or 1 head lettuce - You know what to do with this one - toss the greens together with CARROTS and SWEET PEPPERS for a refreshing salad.
- 1 bitter green - All these greens make a delightfully complex salad. Marinate the chopped leaves with your dressing ahead of time to mellow out some of the bitterness. Delicious with roasted veggies and creamy cheese.
- 1 bunch kale - Stir into a hearty soup with SWEET POTATOES or toss with oil and salt, and bake some crispy kale chips!
- 3-5 peppers (sweet and hot) - Yellow, green, or red, these peppers are sweet and vegetal. Finely chop some hot pepper and add to any dish for a punch of heat.
- 2 lbs sweet potatoes - We can't deny fall is here when sweet potatoes show up! Orange and sweet, these tubers roast up beautifully to top a salad or rice bowl.
- 1.5 - 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 bunch carrots - Crunchy and sweet, these orange beauties cook up into a curry and are a perfect snack.
- 1 head cauliflower or 1 bunch broccoli - Roast at high heat for delicious crispy edges. Mix into a grain salad with roasted SWEET POTATOES and PARSLEY or DILL.
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
