Eat more vegetables.
Theme: Winter At Field Goods
For some of you, this may be your third winter with Field Goods (wow!). We love our greenhouse farmers and our storage expert farmers who keep us flush with delicious produce in the colder months. Combine that with our flash frozen, and it's an unbeatable combo. For those of you new to getting local small farms veggies frozen, here's how it works: During the growing season, we bought up a ton of produce and had it flash frozen at peak freshness. We don't mean a block of soggy veggies, we mean individually frozen green beans that thaw super fast, cook up in minutes, and still have that great fresh crunch. Check out more info here. Here's to eating local all year round!

  • 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.

Maple Syrup (50mL) This natural sweetener has more nutritional value for less calories. "Estate-produced maple syrup highlights the unique elements of a specific place (often referred to as terroir) without blending to mask any imperfections." Crown Maple (CO)
Storage: Refrigerate after opening.

Maple Cream Cheese Poundcake 
Chili with Maple
Leeks A member of the lily family with a mild, slightly sweet onion taste. Think giant scallion. Our guilty pleasure is leeks baked in cream—trim the leeks and slice the white parts in half lengthwise, then rinse and arrange on a baking dish, cut side up. Mix 2 cups of heavy cream with a pinch of Dijon mustard and pepper, then pour over the leeks. Sprinkle breadcrumbs on top and bake 30-45 minutes or until leeks are tender and the top golden. Trauguers Farm (OG)
Storage: 2 weeks in fridge. 
Roasted Parmesan Leeks:
Slice leeks lengthwise, brush with olive oil, place in 350° oven for 30 minutes, remove and toss, top with Parmesan and cook for 15 more minutes.
Leeks can be quite sandy. To clean, cut the roots off, slice the leek down the middle almost to the bottom,  then pull the leaves apart and wash between them.

Spinach Spinach is best when eaten raw or lightly braised. To braise, toss with hot oil and garlic for a few minutes and then add splash of liquid. We like to add Parmesan cheese. If you choose to steam the spinach, wash and steam for just 5-10 minutes. This preparation method preserves nutrient content. Marolda Farms (CO) 
Storage: Up to a week in the fridge, keep greens very dry.

Spinach with Nutmeg and Lemon

Broccoli A staple that can easily be played up. For a quick dish, sautee with soy sauce, oil, garlic and almonds. We like roasting broccoli with a few chiles and a bit of lemon…yum. Cassaday Farm (OG) 
Storage: Up to a week in the fridge. Keep very dry.

Romanesque Can be served raw, lightly cooked, or cooked through,” said Mario Batali in a column for the Seattle Times last fall. “I usually sauté it slowly with garlic and lemon zest, and punctuate with red pepper flakes for zing.” It’s also delicious steamed and lightly seasoned with olive oil and red wine vinegar. It's actually an edible flower in the cauliflower/broccoli family. Cassaday Farm (FAM)
Storage: A week in the fridge. Keep very dry.
