I wish I remembered where this came from. But it’s a great way to use the corn and peppers from today’s box. We don’t have field peas yet, but I’m betting we’ll see some soon. And this is delicious without field peas – so consider maybe dicing up a zucchini if you have one left from last week. It’s an easy recipe for a slow cooker.
Yes, you could make squash casserole, or grill your squash, or just stir fry it. But maybe you’d like to try this risotto idea from thekitchn.com. Risotto is such a thing these days that you’ll find Arborio rice on the shelves at every grocery store. I remember when it was a specialty item and you had to search!
You probably have a similar recipe in your arsenal, but just in case …
This is a recipe I adapted from one I saw in Better Homes and Gardens. If you’re not serving it with a grilled meal, then grill the vegs when it’s convenient and refrigerate, then assemble when you’re ready for this salad.
This simple recipe can be enhanced by slicing up some of those green onions and sprinkling them between the layers.
This lovely recipe comes to us from Garnish & Gather, the Atlanta-based local organic dinner delivery service. It will use up three of the vegetables in your box. No farro on hand? Substitute whatever grain – bulgur, rice, quinoa – you have in your pantry.
I find it interesting that in all our eggplant recipes, we don’t have one for baba ghanoush. Well, that’s what I’m making from the eggplants in the box. Truth be told, it’s one of the few ways my husband will eat eggplant.
This one is from “Plenty More: Vibrant Vegetable Cooking from London’s Ottolenghi” by Yotam Ottelenghi and actually uses squash. I’m going to use up the squash from today’s box, but augment it with eggplant. This is a pretty fancy version, but worth knowing about.
This recipe is adapted from one in the New York Times. A nice reminder that vegan curries are delicious and coconut milk goes with so many vegetables.
This delicious salad is from Seriouseats.com. The beans get blanched, the squash is raw. The dressing is fabulous.
Jon Wolf of The Terrace on Peachtree at The Ellis Hotel demoed this recipe at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market five years ago. It’s such a nice idea – raw, chopped vegetables as a slider – that I’m resurrecting it here. You could serve this as a simple salad as well, but it’s kind of fun to surprise people with a vegetable sandwich.
