More Greens Please: Winter Crunch Salad

Bushel Vegetables: Kale, Brussels Sprouts, Apples

Skip the roast- this crunchy salad calls for shaved raw brussels sprouts, plain and simple. Tossed in a tangy mustard vinaigrette and balanced with sweet apple, this kale salad is anything but boring. Recipe Credit: Bon Appetit


Salads For Days: Cauliflower Fennel Salad with Roasted Lemon & Shallot Salsa Verde

Bushel Vegetables: Cauliflower, Fennel

The term ‘salad’ might be used loosely here, but this vegetable mix is bursting with flavor from crispy roasted veggies, roasted lemon salsa verde, and topped with fresh, bright herbs. Recipe Credit: Food52


Hurry Up Curry: Mushroom and Sweet Potato Japanese-Style Curry

Bushel Vegetables: Mushrooms, Carrots, Sweet Potato, Broccoli, Daikon, Bok Choy

Dive into a bowl of rich, decadent curry in a classic Japanese style. Stir chopped mushrooms, carrots, sweet and potato chunks into the thick, buttery sauce. Serve with a side of steamed broccoli, quick pickled daikon, or sauteed bok choy to pack in more vegetables! Recipe Credit: Betty Liu


Go With Green: Kale Apple Smoothie

Bushel Vegetables: Kale, Spinach, Apple, Grapefruit, Orange

You can’t go wrong with a bright green smoothie to start your year off right! Substitute spinach for kale if you’d like, and you can always add grapefruit or orange juice instead of lemon juice. Recipe Credit: Virtual Vegan
