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!

Super Crunch: Shaved Cauliflower Salad

Bushel Vegetables: cauliflower, lettuce, fennel, cabbage, oranges/grapefruit

You don’t have to roast a head of cauliflower to get the full flavor!  Thinly shave tender cauliflower on a mandolin (or with a very sharp knife) and toss in a zippy lime dressing. If you’re still hanging on to your cabbage or fennel, shavings of the veggies would be a beautiful accompaniment. Need some sweetness? Go for segmented citrus! Recipe Credit: Epicurious

Fantastic Fritters: Crispy Sweet Potato-Green Onion Cakes

Bushel Vegetables: Sweet potato, green onion, collards/kale/chard

Are you just filled to the brim of sweet potatoes? We totally get it- sweet potatoes are so good for you, but cooking them week after week can get pretty monotonous. These crispy Sweet Potato and Green Onion Cakes are a unique dinner idea- crispy on the outside, soft and pillowy on the inside and cook in a shallow fry in only a few minutes. Make a side of greens chips by dehydrating collards, kale, or chard leaves in the oven while the cakes fry. Recipe Credit: MyRecipes

Beet Bowl: Broccoli, Beet, and Kale Brown Rice Bowls with Pesto

Bushel Vegetables: broccoli, beets, carrots, kale

We are all about grain bowls in this week’s newsletter, and this Broccoli, Beet, and kale Brown Rice Bowl is no exception! You can buy your own basil pesto, or even whip up your own with the kale instead of simply topping your lunch with the greens. Feel free to add in any other root vegetables in addition to the beets (such as carrots). Recipe Credit: The Roasted Root
