Each week, we take the time to list out all of the possible produce items that you get in your delivery and translate them into recipe ideas for your meal planning inspiration. If you ever find yourself with too many apples, or no idea what to do with radishes, you can always message us on Facebook or Instagram to chat with a Farmhouse employee! We will get back to you with recipe ideas, meal prep guidance, or just a friendly hello!

Warm and Cozy Dishes: 
Braised Collard Greens and Butternut Squash

Bushel Vegetables: Butternut squash, collards, green onions

“The secret ingredient in this low-calorie, low-fat side is the ginger, which adds warmth and depth of flavor to the vegetables. We saved the butter for the very end-a smart way to maximize its flavor without using too much.” Recipe Credit: Food Network
