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

Farmer Stacey says "When you halve and roast a spaghetti squash, it kinda turns into its own bowl, ready for toppings and sauces. So let's capitalize on that! While the squash roasts, make a quick stir-fry of the asian greens, broccoli or kohlrabi, shishitos. Chop up some sweet pepper for some bright freshness. Make a peanut sauce with ginger, lemongrass or cilantro, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Fluff the "spaghetti" in its bowl and pile on the toppings and dressing."

This week's large veggie bag for Thursday 10/1 will include:
  • 1 bunch lemongrass or cilantro - Lemongrass is a flavorful aromatic used in curries and soups for a hint of citrus. Cilantro is the perfect herb to sprinkle over top for a punch of bright, green flavor.
  • 1 bag greens mix or head lettuce - You know what to do with this one - toss the greens together with SWEET PEPPERS and KOHLRABI spears for a refreshing salad.
  • 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 BROCCOLI, SHISHITOS, and GINGER.
  • 1 bunch sprouting broccoli or 1 kohlrabi - This super sweet broccoli comes in smaller heads, sometimes with edible flowers! The kohlrabi looks a little alien, but peel it and enjoy the crunch and coolness raw or in a stir-fry.
  • 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.
  • 1 spaghetti squash - These golden squashes give us a little peek into fall. Roast in halves with olive oil and salt and once cooked, fluff the "spaghetti" strands with a fork.
  • 1 box shishitos - Mostly mild with the occasional bit of spice, these little peppers saute quickly in hot oil. 
  • 4-5 asian pears - Crisp and sweet, these pears are juicy and make a delightful snack.
  • 3-5 sweet and hot peppers - Purple, green, or red, these peppers are sweet and vegetal. Eat them raw as a vehicle for dip or roast them until soft. Hot peppers add a warm kick to your meal.
