Medium Veggie Box
The medium veggie box is for two-to-three veggie lovers who enjoy having vegetables throughout the week. Your box is harvested to order, changes weekly, and is chosen to express the best of what is seasonal and delicious, guided by nature and the farmers of Path Valley Farms. Eat all these veggies within a week or so, and go for the delicate greens first.
How’s this for a meal prep? The day you get your box, grill the shell peas, spring onions, carrots, asparagus and garlic scapes. Eat the shell peas that night (keep the pods to make a veg broth later), maybe in a salad with the tomatoes, lettuce and a chopped garlic scape or two. Save everything else to use throughout the week, quickly chopped and stir-fried with rice, stirred into pasta, or strewn about a pizza or flatbread. Or invite a few friends over, spread some hommous on a platter, then top it with all your grilled goods. (Don’t forget pita.) For dessert? Sliced strawberries on gelato.
