Eat more vegetables.
Theme: WONDER-VEG: Broccoli
Broccoli has some serious super powers. Amongst all of the commonly consumed cruciferous vegetables, broccoli stands out as the most concentrated source of vitamin C. PLUS: 250 calories of broccoli (about 12% of a 2,000-calorie diet) will give you the full daily requirement of fiber. Broc is very easy to overcook. Once it's bright green, STOP COOKING! It'll turn to mush and you'll start losing all those great nutrients. Your broccoli should have a lil' crunch to it. Enjoy!

Cauliflower Cauliflower has an exceptional nutritional density, which means it contains substantial amounts of vitamins and minerals with very few calories. Mark Twain calls cauliflower "cabbage with a college education." For a quick fix, sauté cauliflower florets and sliced garlic in olive oil until browned and tender. To boost the flavor, toss with raisins, pine nuts, crushed red pepper, and salt. Shaul Farm (FAM)
Storage: One week in the fridge. 
Cauliflower Popcorn: Kid-friendly alert! May even rival kale chips. Snip the cauliflower head and reserve the core and stems for another use. Coat with salt and olive oil, then spread on a lined baking sheet. Roast in the oven at 425 degrees for a half hour or so, turning the cauliflower over halfway through. Serve warm and toss with Parmesan cheese.

Collards Collards can be substituted for any cooking green. There are many conflicting opinions on how long collards should be cooked—we braised them 10-15 minutes and they were great, while others swear collards should be cooked for a couple hours. Barber Farm (OG)
Storage: 4-5 days in the fridge.

COLLARD GREENS GRATIN
Ingredients: 
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for the dish
1/2 yellow onion, grated
2 bunches collard greens (about 1 1/4 pounds total) , ribs removed, leaves roughly chopped
1 cup reduced-fat (2%) milk
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup coarse fresh whole wheat bread crumbs
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme
1 lemon, cut into wedges
Directions: 
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Oil a round 9- or 10-inch casserole dish and set aside. 
Heat oil in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Add collard greens and cook, tossing often until wilted, just tender and any residual liquid has cooked away, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, vigorously whisk together milk, flour, nutmeg, salt and pepper. In a medium bowl, toss together bread crumbs, cheese and thyme. Transfer contents of the skillet to the prepared dish, pour over milk mixture and scatter with bread crumb mixture. Bake until golden brown and crunchy on top, about 20 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges to add extra flavor. 
Yummy Peppers These are as sweet as it gets! Put them right into the lunchbox for snack time. Hepworth Farms (CO)
Storage: 1-2 weeks in the crisper drawer of the fridge. 
Seriously, just snack on them. Or halve and toss on your salad, in sandwiches or wraps. 
Frying Peppers Also good on the grill! Great with Italian seasoning, but also try coconut lime combo with these. Hepworth Farms (CO)
Storage: 1-2 weeks in the crisper drawer of the fridge.
Charred Peppers with Parmesan Recipe
makes 2 side dish or appetizer servings
Ingredients
4 Italian frying peppers, large
2-4 tablespoons olive oil, as needed - start with 2
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese, plus more to taste
Directions
Slice the peppers in half lengthwise and remove the stem and any seeds. If there are any large, thick ribs, remove them as well. Heat a large, seasoned cast iron skillet over medium-high heat until searingly hot. Reduce the heat to medium and add 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add the peppers cut side down in a single layer -- you may need to fry the peppers in two batches if you can't fit all the peppers in the skillet at once with breathing room around them, so hold on to that extra 2 tablespoons olive oil. Cook without stirring or moving the peppers for 5 minutes, letting the steam building up under the peppers' "domes" soften them. Flip the peppers with tongs and cook undisturbed for 5 minutes more, letting the skin of the peppers blister and char in the oil. Continue to cook and flip until the peppers are as soft and blackened as you'd like, anywhere from 5-10 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining peppers and olive oil as needed. Transfer the charred peppers to a plate and blanket generously with Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
Flemish Pears This heirloom pear was introduced in America in the early 1800s. The large, rounded fruits are meltingly tender, sweet and aromatic. Originally known as "Sweetmeat of the Woods," we prefer "Flemish Beauty." Fix Brothers Farm (FAM)
Storage: 1-4 days in pantry until ripe, up to 5 days in the fridge once ripe. 
Roast Pears 
Zestar! Apples A very crisp, early season apple developed by horticulturists at the University of Minnesota. “Crunch into Zestar!” Fix Brothers Farm (FAM)
Storage: If unripe: 1-3 days in the pantry, 3-4 weeks in the fridge.

Broccoli A staple that can easily be played up. For a quick dish, sauté with soy sauce, oil, garlic and almonds. We like roasting broccoli with a few chiles and a bit of lemon…yum. Shaul Farm (FAM)
Storage: Keep very dry. 3-5 days in the fridge.
