June 1st Pick Up

I have to say,  last week was one of the best weeks we have had at market!  The spring has been so sweet to us and Matt has been working extra hard growing the very best produce!

Matt is so talented and his food is so tasty!  I would like to thank everyone who came out to the South of the James Farmer’s Market to support us.  Matt is truly an artisan when it comes to growing great produce!

If you are a Farm Share Member and are getting the bag option, here is what is coming in your bag this week:

Kale
Salad
Beets
Breakfast Radishes
Zucchini
Cabbage
Bok Choi

Here are a couple of my favorite recipes!

When the bok choi comes in so tender, I can’t stand to cook it!  I love it fresh!

I make an awesome salad out of it following this recipe.   To make it a meal simply add grilled chicken!

It s so fresh, I promise you will not be disappointed!

I usually use a whole bag of salad for myself and bring them for my lunches using my favorite dressing recipe:

  1. 2 tablespoons honey.
  2. 1 tablespoon dijon mustard.
  3. 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt.
  4. 1/2 teaspoon freshly crushed black pepper finely ground.
  5. 1 large garlic clove minced.
  6. 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar.
  7. 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil.

I love raw beets, so I slice them thinly on my mandaline and add in my radishes and carrots.  I always add two eggs for my protein, it helps me so I don’t get so hungry.

Matt’s breakfast radishes are to die for!  One of my favorite ways to eat them is to lay them atop some great butter and bread and sprinkle with microgreens!

I always use Norwood Cottage bread and recently have fallen in love with UnMoo Nutter (nut butter).  They are right next to us at market!  They also have great cheeses.

You all are also getting zuchinni!

SkinnyTaste is my favorite recipe blogger and if you are trying to be carb-free, give this a try!  I absolutely love this recipe and I never miss the noodles!  Here is the recipe!

You are getting a beautiful Chinese cabbage!  There are so many things you can do with this!IMG_0460.jpeg

I love a great cabbage salad but I really LOVE Fish Tacos and make a nice cabbage slaw with the cabbage!

If you are looking for an awesome recipe for your kale, try Lasagna Roll-ups!  They are so easy and delicious!  You can even meal prep these on Sundays!
