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!

Beet the Burger: Mushroom and Black Bean Burger with Beet-Cashew Cream and Pickled Fennel

Brimming Bowls: Braised Bok Choy, Leek and Spinach Rice Bowl with Poached Egg

Bushel Vegetables: Bok Choy, Green Onion, Broccoli, Spinach/Collards/Kale, 

Who needs takeout when this easy rice bowl is only a few vegetables away? Leeks aren’t quite in season, so go for those impressive green onions that come in your bushel. If you didn’t get spinach this week, chopped kale or collards will work just fine!  Recipe Credit: The Wooden Skillet

Bushel Vegetables: Lettuce, Grapefruit/Orange

Need a fast and easy detox salad? Toss delicate butter lettuce with a simple vinaigrette, toasted walnuts, and citrus (grapefruit or orange) segments. Recipe Credit: MyRecipes

Cozy Bowls: Roasted Butternut Squash and Cauliflower Soup
