Eat more vegetables.
Theme: Secret to Success
In the kitchen, tricks and tools are totally helpful (and totally necessary) to get meals on the table fast. You don't have to sacrifice quality prepping to get your cooking done quickly, you just need to cook smarter. We can't say enough about the mandoline! It cuts all your veggies a bunch of different ways (namely thin or thick julienne), allowing you to easily make anything into chips, fries, slaw, and so on. Invest in a mandoline--you'll be using it for everything! This week, try beet chips. Remember that blade is sharp! Be safe in the kitchen, folks.

  • Tip: Any item you would cook, you can also freeze.
  • Tip 2: A dull knife conspires against you and slows you down. A sharp knife makes your food taste better (and look better, too). NY Times
  • Any green needs to be as dry as possible, wrapped in a paper towel in a plastic bag and kept in the fridge crisper.

Portobello Mushrooms The portobello is the prime rib of the vegetable world! Tastes fabulous grilled—brush with olive oil, add garlic or soy sauce if you like, then grill for about 3-5 minutes on each side. Can also be eaten raw. Bulich Mushroom Farm (OG)

Red Beets Did you know that a cup of raw beets has only 58 calories? Beets are in the same family as chard and spinach. If you have a mandolin slicer, julienne the beets and toss with oil and lemon—beautiful and tasty. This web page has a nice summary of how to microwave, roast, sauté, and steam beets. Notice boiling was not mentioned—do not boil! Boiling sacrifices the quality and flavor of the beet and releases an unpleasant aroma. Juniper Hill Farm (CO)
Storage: 2 weeks in the fridge.

They’re perfect for glazes, sauces, marinades, drizzled over fresh berries, cheeses, potatoes, and of course on crusty baguettes. Add them to your Field Goods veggie bounty when you sauté or roast them and watch the flavors come to life!" -From our friends at Pure Mountain Olive Oil 
Storage: Keep dry in a plastic bag up to one month in the fridge.
