Talk Dinner to Us

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!

Genius Salads: Grapefruit Vinaigrette

Bushel Vegetables: GrapefruitCucumbersTomatoes, Romaine LettuceRadishes, Fennel

It’s time to detox as much as possible before the holidays and a big, bright salad is just what we need! Take the season’s first grapefruits and transform the sweet/tart fruit into this zippy vinaigrette, ideal for pouring over everything! Make a big bowl salad of crunchy romaine, cucumbers, chopped tomatoes, thinly sliced fennel and radishes, toss in the vinaigrette and top with chopped nuts or cooked grains.

These easy tacos ask you to first make braised greens with bacon and then go for the real prize with these weeknight tacos.

With the last of the bushel waiting to be cooked up, it’s time for an old standby: stir-fry!
