7/17/17 Next Week’s Medium Bushel:
Learning to cook seasonally can be daunting. We know that the relief that comes from not having to brave the grocery store aisles or the crowded farmers market stalls is often outweighed by the slight panic you might feel when presented with a bushel overflowing with produce.
We brought the food to your door, we want to make sure it makes it into your belly. We’ve combed our brains and our favorite recipe indexes to bring you a list of ways to use your bushel throughout the week. Stick with us and you’ll be a master at seasonal cooking in no time.
Veg Out: Super Fast Casual
This week we are skipping the takeout menu to celebrate the bounty of summer produce. Inspired by the lunchtime takeout bowls of the minute, we’ve got veggie burgers, rice bowls, and tossed salads to inspire you to use up the bushel. Have a ‘regular’ lunch spot? We challenge you to recreate your ‘usual’ with our seasonal vegetables and Texas products.
Big Bowl Salads: Toss in Those Greens
Burgers a la Bushel : Take meatless Monday to a new level with butternut, zucchini, and peppers
Nothing says summer like a juicy burger so we challenged ourselves to create a burger meal using just our bushel and a few necessities. We may have found a new favorite summer combination.
Build a Burrito Bowl: with corn, lettuce, zucchini and apples
Searching for a way to repurpose last night’s grilled chicken or use up the ground beef sitting in the fridge? Toss any protein with steamed rice and you’re on your way to your favorite fast food burrito bowl without ever leaving your kitchen. Top your bowl with roasted squash or shisitos, shredded lettuce, and corn. We eat our sweet corn cut straight from the cob, but you can cook it if you prefer. Garnish your bowl with an apple cucumber salsa. Don’t be deterred by this unusual combination, the flavors are sure to surprise and delight you, we’d even recommend swapping out the cucumbers for your bushel’s zucchini! And if cheese is a must in your book, sprinkle some queso fresco or Monterrey jack on top for a finishing touch.
