Theme: Here Come the Sunchokes
INTENSELY COOL BAG, FOODIES HOLD ONTO YOUR HATS...Sunchokes are coming your way. Indigenous to North America because--as you may have guessed from the name--they're the tubers of sunflowers! They've got a delicate, sweet and nutty flavor similar to an artichoke (hence their other moniker 'Jerusalem artichokes'). Use 'em any way you'd use potatoes, so don't peel them just scrub them. For roasting, cube into half dollar sized chunks. It's 2015, the year you discover your new favorite vegetable.

  • 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.


 
Frozen 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.
Cauliflower Popcorn: Kid-friendly alert! May even rival kale chips... 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. Dagele Brothers Farm (IPM)
Storage: Toss in the freezer.

Frozen Edamame The appetizer of choice in most Japanese restaurants, edamame is an immature soybean for mature eaters though kids & immature adults love 'em as well! To prepare: boil water with salt, add the edamame (no peeling or cutting necessary), cook for 5-6 minutes & strain. You can either serve with the pods or peel and pop out the beans to add to salads, pasta, etc. Markristo Farm (CO)
Storage: Pop in the freezer.

Frozen 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. Store unwashed broccoli in a plastic bag...you should keep it dry. Dagele Brothers (IPM) or Shaul Farm (FAM)
Storage: Pop in the freezer.

Sunchokes or 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. Roasting is gonna be your best friend here. Raw sunchokes make a great addition to salads. Hepworth Farm (CO) 
Storage: Keep dry in a plastic bag up to one month in the fridge.

FAMILY & STANDARD ONLY: Greenhouse 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. Katchkie Farm (CO)
