The Farm at Sunnyside - Tuesday October 27th Lineup

Certified organic produce from The Farm at Sunnyside, which is just 75 miles from Washington DC. 

These veggies are delicious in many applications, from stir-frys to curries. But let's try something a little different this time and make a pho-style soup! Depending on your preferences it can be made with meat or not. A large part of the flavor will come from the ginger and dried spices such as star anise, cinnamon, cloves, and chinese five-spice. Simmer these aromatics along with a quartered onion in your choice of broth for 45 minutes or so. Then strain out the spices and onion and add in halved or quartered bok choi, mushrooms, and carrot matchsticks.  Pour the soup over cooked rice noodles and top with lots of cilantro and chopped radishes or turnips!

The Large Veggie Box for Tuesday 10/27 will delight you with:

  • 1 bunch cilantro/lemongrass - Cilantro goes well with Asian or Mexican inspired cooking; chop and add to stir-frys or tacos! Lemongrass adds lemony freshness to a curry or soup.
  • 1 bag greens mix or 1 head lettuce - You know what to do with this one - toss the greens together with RADISHES or HAKUREIS and CARROT-GINGER dressing for a refreshing salad.
  • 1 head cabbage or napa cabbage - These crisp greens make a great classic slaw with shredded CARROTS or add texture to a stir-fry.
  • 1 bunch asian greens - Bok choi, choi sum, or tat soi: these are all tender and delicious in stir-frys. Cook at high heat with CARROTS, CAULIFLOWER or BROCCOLI, and GINGER.
  • 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.
  • 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 bunch carrots - Snappy and sweet, these orange beauties cook up into a curry and are a perfect snack. Blend up with ginger, garlic, olive oil, and vinegar for a hearty salad dressing.
  • 1 bunch hakurei turnips or radishes - Radishes are back - crunchy and slightly peppery, toss these on top of a LETTUCE salad with CARROTS. Hakurei turnips are mild and sweet and just as crunchy!
  • 1 head cauliflower or 1 bunch broccoli - Use either one with CABBAGE, SWEET POTATOES, and GINGER for a hearty curry dinner. 
The Farm at Sunnyside is managed by Stacey and Casey. We first met them at the Arlington Farmers Market in 2013 when starting Number 1 Sons. Stacey and Casey are phenomenal farmers and managers tending to the health of their land, soil, staff and our community with their nutritious + delicious vegetables.

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.
