Broccoli with Turmeric and Tomatoes

Bushel Vegetables: Broccoli, Onions, Tomatoes (use fresh instead of diced in the recipe), + Fennel (slice and add with onions)

“Looking for a quick and easy way to add some excitement to broccoli? Both florets and stems lend their unique textures to this excellent side dish. We actually prefer the stems and hate to see them thrown away. Serve the broccoli with chicken, beef, or lamb.”

This colorful and tasty slaw is a great way to enjoy the mild, crisp flavor of kohlrabi. Make a double batch as this slaw will take you through the entire week.”

Summer Squash Salad with Lemon Citronette

Bushel Vegetables: Summer Squash, Add: Cucumber (shave into long strips and toss with squash), Add: Lettuce (to bulk up the salad or dip into extra dressing)

“Raw, ribboned yellow and green squash tossed with an herbed lemon vinaigrette, pine nuts and feta cheese. Buy the freshest, smallest squash you can find (local/organic will have the best flavor). Salting the squash helps draw out excess moisture, so allow 20 minutes for that step”
