Sweet and Salty Curry Roasted Sweet Potato

Produce Box Vegetables: O’Henry Sweet Potatoes or Pumpkin (peeled, seeds removed, and sliced), Parsley (for garnish),  

“With a sweet & savory blend, these crispy, curry roasted sweet potatoes are a winner. Paired with creamy avocado! And white sweet potatoes!

Baby Bok Choy Salad with Sesame Dressing

Produce Box Vegetables: Bok Choy (or Collards), Add: Blanched Green Beans, Diced Cucumber

“The easiest way to clean Baby Bok Choy is to treat it like a bunch of celery. Trim off and discard the end of the bulb and separate the stalks. Wash the stalks in cool water, carefully brushing away any sand or dirt that remains.”

Persimmon and Apple Tarte Tatin

Produce Box Vegetables: Apples (or Pears), Persimmons

“The delicate, earthy sweetness of Fuyu persimmons is a perfect match for apples in this classic French dessert. A quick caramel sauce and easy puff pastry crust give you big payoff for very little fuss.”
