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

While typical Thanksgiving foods are undeniably delicious, they do tend to be rich, heavy, and filling. So the week afterwards I always feel the need to cook something entirely different, something to brighten up my palate and plate again. A bowl of brown rice or soba noodles topped with roasted sweet potatoes, stir-fried asian greens, and a gingery dressing seems like the perfect antidote. Make a fresh little slaw out of finely shredded napa cabbage and dress with soy sauce, sesame oil, chili flakes, and toasted sesame seeds. 

This week's small veggie bag for Thursday 12/3 will include:
  • 1 bunch cilantro or 1 head garlic - A clove of garlic a day keeps the doctor away? In any case it's delicious and spruces up any dish! Cilantro adds a pop of freshness to tacos or stir-frys. 
  • 1 head napa cabbage - Crisp and light, this frilly cabbage is perfect for dumplings, kimchi, crunchy salads and slaws, and the classic 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, GARLIC, 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 mixed sweet potatoes - A classic fall flavor. Orange or purple, these tubers roast up beautifully to top a rice bowl with ASIAN GREENS and CILANTRO . 
  • 1-1.5 lbs carrots - Crunchy and sweet, these carrots roast up beautifully or are great vehicles for dip.
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. You may have eaten their vegetables at the Dupont Circle Farmers Market, Falls Church Farmers Market, The Dabney or A Rake's Progress :)

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 rarely happens, 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
