We will get back to you with recipe ideas, meal prep guidance, or just a friendly hello!

Butternut Squash and Potato Soup

Produce Box Vegetables: Red Potatoes, Butternut Squash

“This soup makes a big batch, and I think the flavor even improves a little after spending a day or two in the fridge. So if there’s anyone you’re trying to get more squash into, I highly recommend you whip this up.

Minty Fruit Salad

Produce Box Vegetables: Melon, Peaches, Pears

“Summer is the season of stone fruit — juicy cherries, sweet peaches, perfect plums. Add a little mint and honey and you’ve got an amazing summer salad that is a turn away from the usual melon-heavy versions popular on picnic tables and at barbecues.”

Zucchini and Corn Fritters

Produce Box Vegetables: Zucchini (Summer Squash), Fresh Corn

“If you grow your own summer squash, belong to a CSA, or just shop at a farmers market, the weekly haul of zucchini and corn can be overwhelming. Our solution? Shred it, squeeze it, mix it into a cheesy batter, and fritter it away. Literally. Next thing you know, you’ll be wanting even more.”

Roasted Eggplant Sabich Sandwiches

Produce Box Vegetables: Eggplant, Cucumber

“Sabich, a popular Israeli street food, is a pita-busting combination of a bunch of great appetizers. To serve these to a group, you can set out the assorted fillings on individual plates and platters and let guests build their own.”
