Eat more vegetables.
Theme: Tool to Try: Mandoline
We're big fans of the super simple slicing machine, the mandoline. While you can't make sweet music with this one, you can make chips or slaw in no time with it. We love slicing beets nice and thin and baking 15-20 mins at 375 degrees. Shred cabbage quickly for slaw. Just be careful with your fingers!!

  • 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.

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. Markristo Farm (CO)
Storage: Up to a week in the fridge.
Strawberry Spinach Salad
Spinach with Nutmeg and Lemon
Garlic Sautéed Spinach
Cream of Spinach Soup

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 web 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. MigliorelliFarm (IPM) 
Storage: Up to 10 days in the fridge, keep greens very dry.

Garlic According to the New York Times, garlic has been known for its therapeutic benefits since ancient times. Studies have linked it to lower cholesterol, serum triglyceride levels, and blood pressure. Sulfur-containing compounds including allicin give garlic its pungency, along with high levels of vitamin C, vitamin B6, manganese and selenium, which seem to be responsible for garlic’s beneficial cardiovascular effects. Allicin is a powerful antibacterial and antiviral agent. You can freeze whole bulbs of garlic and individual cloves. One of the benefits is that freezing makes the cloves much easier to peel. When you need some garlic, just pop a clove or two off and put the bulb back in the freezer. Shaul Farm (FAM)
Storage: We toss whole heads in the freezer, but in the pantry a head will last 3-5 months. Individual cloves last up to a week. 
Roasted Garlic: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Peel away outer layers of the skin around the garlic bulb. Cut about 1/4 inch off the top of the bulbs, then coat with olive oil. Wrap each bulb with aluminum foil and place in a baking pan. Bake for 30-40 minutes until golden brown and tender inside (test with a fork or toothpick). Dress up burgers or sandwiches, add to soups or mashed potatoes, or toss in a salad with balsamic Dijon dressing.
Garlic Broth
Mizuna Family & Standard Only Mizuna is an Asian green similar to arugula, but less spicy. Mizuna makes great bedding for meat and chicken as it has a nice crunch and peppery kick. We recommend that you also toss it in with your salad mix or try as a pesto. Can be cooked or eaten raw. Rexcroft Farm (IPM)
Storage: Up to a week in the crisper.
