Veggie bag - Large

Regular price $30.00

*** FOR RAPPAHANNOCK PICK-UP ONLY ***

Certified organic produce from The Farm at Sunnyside. This week's large bag has:
  • bunch thyme or parsley - Parsley is more than a pretty garnish, blitz up into a zingy sauce with garlic, lemon juice and olive oil. Thyme is savory and goes well with roasted root veggies.
  • 1 bag greens mix or 1 head lettuce - You know what to do with this one - toss the greens together with roasted root veggies and finely chopped fennel.
  • 1 bunch kale or collards - When stewed for a long time with ONIONS, garlic, and spices, both of these greens get melty soft. Or bake pieces of kale for some crispy chips!
  • 1 head fennel - Anise-y and fresh, fennel's sweetness is concentrated when roasted. Pairs well with BEETS and ONIONS. 
  • 2 onions - These sweet onions are the perfect base for any dish. Slowly cook over low heat for luscious caramelized onions. 
  • 1 kabocha squash - Super sweet from a few weeks of curing, this squash has a dense, orange flesh that becomes creamy and smooth after roasting. 
  • 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 beets - Earthy and sweet, beets are a sweet addition to any meal. Roast in chunks or slice super thinly on a mandoline and toss with your favorite grain and some soft cheese. 
  • 1 head cauliflower or 1 bunch broccoli - Roast at high heat for delicious crispy edges. Mix into a grain salad with roasted BEETS and PARSLEY or THYME.
Cooking suggestion: Minestrone is a soup originating in Italy and is a great way to combine whatever seasonal vegetables you have available! Rutabagas, beets, cauliflower or broccoli, kale or collards, and onions will make this a hearty version. Start by sauteing the onion and some garlic. Add the rest of the chopped vegetables, saving the greens for closer to the end. Cover with broth and canned tomatoes and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the veggies are nearly done. Add the chopped greens, uncooked pasta, and cooked beans at this point. Simmer for another 15 minutes or so until finished. Serve with grated cheese and chopped herbs.
