Maple- Mustard Roasted Chicken with Squash

Produce Box Vegetables: Butternut Squash (or Delicata Squash), Onions — Substitute: Cubed Potatoes or Cubed Eggplant for Brussels Sprouts

We give the large bone-in breasts a head start in the oven so they will be perfectly cooked by the time the vegetables are done. This cut is also rather juicy; you’ll want to drain off the liquid from the pan before adding the vegetables so they can caramelize evenly.”

Instant Pot Corn Chowder

Produce Box Vegetables: Red Potatoes, Corn —  Add: Chopped Sweet Peppers 

“So hearty, cozy and creamy – And it’s made right in your pressure cooker so effortlessly! It’s comfort food at it’s easiest!” Substitute frozen corn kernels for fresh and add chopped sweet peppers when cooking down the onions.

Skillet Roasted Okra and Shrimp

Produce Box Vegetables: Okra, Tomatoes — Add: Sliced mushrooms

This “fast saute” is best over creamy grits or a fresh green salad. Add sliced mushrooms when searing okra to use up the rest of your Produce Box.
