Theme: Bring Back the Brussels Sprout!
We here at Field Goods cannot understand why people don't LOVE Brussels sprouts. Doing some quick armchair psychology, it seems like the problems all began in childhood...when parents boiled all their veggies. Don't boil these! They're perfect chopped in half and in the oven super hot (450-500 degrees) for just 5 minutes with some lemon, or are fantastic sliced up and sautéed with garlic. Totally easy, totally healthy, and totally kid friendly! Don't let your Brussels be banned! Here's what can happen: "My kids gobbled them up after I quartered them, tossed in olive oil and sea salt and roasted them for 30 minutes, then tossed with toasted walnuts and a little walnut oil...Delish!" THIS IS AN ACTUAL SUBSCRIBER STORY. Be sure to share your Bring Back Brussels Sprouts stories with us on Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram! We love seeing what you make.

  • 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.

Pea Greens Pea greens are young pea vines. Delicious raw or cooked—saute quickly with olive oil and garlic for a delicious healthy side dish, or put them in a bowl on the table and watch your kids nibble them like bunnies.

If you need a burst of spring this week, pea shoots make a wonderful pesto—10 minutes, 6 easy ingredients and a plate of pasta make an amazing meal. Little Seed Farm (CO)

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 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: Two weeks in the fridge, don't wash until ready to use.
Sweet and Salty Beet Burgers
Boiled Beets with Tarragon Butter
Grated Raw Beet Salad
