Barley Stuffed Peppers

Produce Box Vegetables: Sweet Corn, Bell Peppers, Mushrooms — Add: Diced Red Onion

“This is an almost perfect dish for the home cook because it’s economical, healthy, and scrumptious! You can whip it up anytime you have leftover cooked barley, brown rice, or quinoa from the night before. For a carnivore’s take on this dish, add a cup of browned ground meat in place of 1 cup of the cooked barley or other grain.”

Farmhouse Note: You can also use this filling to stuff your Acorn Squash – Halve and hollow out the squash. Brush olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper on the inside flesh before filling.


Baked Tomatoes, Squash and Potatoes

Produce Box Vegetables: Red Potatoes, Summer Squash

“This baked riff on ratatouille may look sophisticated, but it’s surprisingly simple. Serve it for brunch or at dinner parties — and save leftovers to eat straight out of the dish by the forkful”

Peach, Melon, Basil and Burrata Salad

Produce Box Vegetables: Peaches, Melon, Lettuce — Add: Diced Cucumber

“Perfectly ripe slices of melon and peach, fresh basil, creamy burrata, thin slices of serrano ham, a generous drizzle of olive oil, crushed red pepper, sunflower seeds, and sesame. We had it as an appetizer, but I could definitely see it working as a main, especially with hot toasted bread. So summery and so, so good.”
