Eat more vegetables.
Theme: Heating Up
With this nice stretch of sunny warm weather we've just had comes great news from our greenhouse growers.....GREENS! 
Greenhouses need two things to work: light and heat. (Plus the love & dedication of our small farmers.) This snowy, bitter cold winter has made producing an even bigger challenge for our growers, and we are thrilled to have some hardy greens back in the bag.
Happy Spring!

  • 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.

Shallots (STANDARD & FAMILY ONLY) A member of the allium family, shallots are milder than onions or garlic. When slowly cooked, shallots become sweet. Toss with oil and salt, then cook in a warm oven until they soften. Shallots also taste great raw, especially in salad dressings. Try whisking together minced shallots, lemon juice, salt & pepper and olive oil to top a kale salad. Fledging Crow Farm (OG)
Storage: In the fridge for a couple weeks.
Caramelized Shallots
Shallot Vinaigrette
Pan-seared chicken breasts with shallotsEasy and delicious, this would go well served over mashed redskin potatoes and sprinkled with fresh chives.   
Sea bass with lemon-shallot butter –As Pioneer Woman says, this is a "method", not a recipe, and is a quick treatment for many different types of fish including salmon or haddock. 
Simple shallot pasta—Olive oil, shallots, pasta, and parmesan—doesn't get much simpler than that. Parsley and/or chives would jazz it up even further. Grab a baguette to soak up the juices.
Sweet Shallot Dressing—Roasting the shallots makes this dressing a special treat.
Arugula Also commonly referred to as "rocket", arugula has a rich, peppery taste. Raw or wilted arugula tastes fantastic on pizza. Makes for a delicious pesto, especially if you mix with basil and/or parsley. Continental Organics (OG)
Storage: 1-2 weeks in the crisper with a paper towel in the plastic bag.
