  • Our veggie guarantee: If you have a quality issue, let customer service know!!  (This is how we reduce waste and cost.)
  • Items are subject to change depending on weather and farm availability. 
  • Tip 1: 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
  • Tip 3: Any green needs to be as dry as possible, wrapped in a paper towel in a plastic bag and kept in the fridge crisper.

Shiitake Mushrooms If you eat miso soup, you should be familiar with Shitake mushrooms. Most people don't eat the stems of these, so we suggest using them for stock instead. Bulich Family Farm (OG)
Storage: Up to 5 days in the fridge in a paper bag.
Sautéed Shitake Mushrooms
Fettuccine with Shitake Mushrooms
Shiitake and Green Bean Stir-fry 
Garlic-Sautéed Shiitake Mushrooms –10 minutes/4 ingredients, doesn't get much easier than that. 
Yellow Onions Caramelize onions in 10 minutes: Place chopped onions in a dry pan without salt and cook over medium-high heat until dark brown and softened, about five minutes. Add oil and a pinch of salt, then cook for five more minutes until completely soft. Throw on top of bread for a snack, or use as a garnish to just about any meat or fish. Add to pasta, soup, or pizza. Farm at Miller's Crossing (CO)
Storage: 2-3 months in the pantry or fridge. 
Grilled Mixed Peppers and Onions
Balsamic Grilled Onions
Caramelized Onions
Kale Sprouts Great little article from Grub Street on these babies. Such a versatile veggie. Try it blanched, then sautéed in a pan with garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper and then tossed with linguini. Juniper Hill Farm (CO)
Storage: Up to a week in the fridge.
Spicy Soy Kale Salad
Lemony Kale Salad
Parsnips Parsnips are one of those veggies folks are unnecessarily intimidated by. Just peel them like carrots, cut them up and roast in the oven with just a bit of olive oil.  They are sweet and fabulous...promise. Their delicious nutty flavor is also ideal for roasts, stews and soups. Peeled and pared parsnips brown when exposed to air, so use right away or cover in lemon juice to slow the oxidation process. We love parsnip puree spread onto large lettuce leaves for a snack. Fledging Crow Vegetables (OG) 
Storage: 3-4 weeks in the fridge.
Creamy Parsnip Soup
Garlic Mashed Parsnips
Pureed Roasted Parsnips
Parsnip Fries—It's hard to give up french fries, but lucky for us, a low-fat version with parsnip and rosemary might be even more delicious. Try them! 
Creamy Parsnip Mash—Try these instead of mashed potatoes; you'll be glad you did. You can also mix them with potatoes for a half-and-half comfort food dish.
Butternut Squash Fantastic roasted, in soup, or pureed and frozen if you can't use it right away. Barber Farm (OG)
Storage: 1-2 months in the pantry.
Roasted Squash and Turnips You can probably use lots of spices instead of the Chinese 5 spice powder in this recipe, but if you haven't tried it, get a bottle and improve your life.
Curried Butternut Squash Soup - Heavenly!  If you haven't used coconut milk in your cooking before, you are in for a treat. Try the 'lite' version to save fat and calories. 
Sunchokes aka Jerusalem Artichokes Jerusalem Artichokes are starchy sunflower tubers. Their nutty taste resembles a cross between artichokes and potatoes or water chestnuts. Like potatoes, sunchokes can be eaten with or without the skin, which has great nutritional value. Roast, sauté, bake, boil or steam. Raw sunchokes make a fantastic snack or addition to salads. Tuscarora Farms (OG)
Storage: 1-2 weeks in the fridge.  
Roasted Garlic Sunchokes
Shaved Sunchoke Salad with Parmesan and Arugula
Fried Sunchoke Chips with Rosemary
Sunchoke and Pear Salad
Mutsu Apples Sumo wrestler-size apples! Also known as crispins. Fix Brothers Farm (FAM)
Storage: Up to a month in the fridge. 
Golden Delicious Apple Tart
Old-Fashioned Apple Crisp
Celery (Family & Standard Only) Celery grown by small farms isn't the same thing as the stuff of grocery stores.  This will have a much more intense flavor and maybe tougher, making it ideal for cooking. Grill, marinate, braise, broil, stir-fry, or make into a soup. Barber Farm (OG)
Storage: A week in the fridge. 
We love celery noodles:
Use a vegetable peeler or paring knife to shave celery into thins trips, then steam sauté (to steam sauté, throw just-washed veggies into a hot pan, crank the heat, lid, and let the water wilt the veggies a little. After 3 minutes, de-lid, stir, then sauté as normal) and add tomato sauce and Parmesan.
Braised Celery
Celery Stir-Fry
Hearty Celery Minestrone Soup
Pasta with Celery and Lemon
