We will get back to you with recipe ideas, meal prep guidance, or just a friendly hello!
Savory Zucchini Waffles
Produce Box Vegetables: Zucchini, Tomatoes
“As soon as zucchini makes an appearance in early summer, we usually jump right on the fritter train, but this year, waffles are the way to go. A quick cherry tomato salad makes a lovely side, or pair them with creamy tomato soup on rainy days.”
Beans and Greens with Caper Vinaigrette
Produce Box Vegetables: Green Beans
Bright and briny capers jazz up this fresh green bean side dish. Pair with pan-fried fish or grilled chicken for a complete summer meal.
Summer Veggie Chowder
Produce Box Vegetables: Corn, Potatoes, Tomato
“Minimal effort and maximum richness make this a breezy weeknight meal the whole family can enjoy.”
Add diced carrots, green beans (chopped into rough pieces) or sliced okra to bulk up the chowder. For every cup of vegetables, add 1/2 cup veggie broth or stock.
Ribeye and Mushroom Stroganoff
Produce Box Vegetables: Mushrooms
When the summer storms are upon us, it’s time to cozy up to a bowl of comforting stroganoff. Saute sliced mushrooms into a saucy brown sauce and serve with a simple lettuce side salad.
Skillet Fruit Crisp
Produce Box Vegetables: Peaches or Blueberries
“Not too sweet, it’s filled with jammy berries, fragrant with warm cinnamon and toasty walnuts – and best of all, can be thrown together in practically the time it takes to whip up some cream to go on top. When there’s something this soul-warming on offer, no one will much care what’s for dinner anyway, so give yourself a night off and enjoy the sweet freedom of summer.”
