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!

Potato, Squash & Goat Cheese Gratin

Produce Box Vegetables: Summer Squash, Red Potatoes, Add: Rainbow Chard and Thinly Shaved Carrots (in between layers)

“This is an easy, rustic recipe that makes a great vegetarian meal or a pretty side dish for summer or autumn. It’s so simple: yellow squash layered in a jumble with sliced red potato and goat cheese. No cream needed at all.”

Herb Crusted Cauliflower Steaks with Beans and Tomatoes

Produce Box Vegetables: Cauliflower, Green Beans, Tomatoes, Add: Lettuce (Make a simple side salad)

This cauliflower “steak” is so impressive, your meal will demand a steak knife! Prep work is simplified for this sheet-pan dinner with an herbed garlic oil that’s used two ways: first, it’s mixed with panko and Parmesan for a crispy crust for the cauliflower, then tossed with beans and cherry tomatoes for a zesty side dish.

Oven Dried Strawberries

Produce Box Vegetables: Strawberries

“This recipe method concentrates the berries’ flavors, so the more delicious they are to begin with, the better they will be dried. Here’s your opportunity to use up berries that are slightly past their prime. They’re chewy—a bit softer than a dried apricot—with a plump, juicy consistency.”
