Theme: We're Cookin'!
We're excited for 2015! We're especially excited for that first beautiful month of January. Why? Because we've decided this is the month you learn to cook! This week we're going to focus on soup, because it's gonna get cold people, and soup is too easy and perfect to warm you up. Here's what you'll need: a blender. We especially love immersion blenders. Whatever kind of soup you're making, all you really need to do is put your roasted veggie(s) in a bowl with some herbs & spices, and a liquid (vegetable broth, milk, anything) and just blend it on up. You'll get a great texture, great flavor, and a super nutritious meal in a matter of minutes. We've included soup recipes for most everything in this week's bag below. Get creative! Soup's here to make you comfortable with experimenting and trying flavor pairings. You've got this!

  • 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.

Curried Butternut Squash Soup - Heavenly!  If you haven't used coconut milk in your cooking before, you are in for a treat. Try the 'lite' version to save fat and calories. 
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. Flash frozen by WinterSun Farms.
Storage: Pop in the freezer.
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.

Acorn Squash Soup DO THE SOUP once you're done roasting the squash, soup is just 10 minutes away.
Parsnips One of our customers told us that they just don't know what to do with parsnips. Just peel them like carrots, cut them up and roast in the oven with just a bit of olive oil. They are sweet and fabulous...promise! Their delicious nutty flavor is also ideal for roasts, stews and soups. Peeled and pared parsnips brown when exposed to air, so use right away or cover in lemon juice to slow the oxidation process. We love parsnip puree spread onto large lettuce leaves for a snack. Migliorelli Farm (IPM)
Storage: Keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Celeriac PERFECT FOR MASH OR SOUP A starchy, versatile root vegetable with a more mild taste than celery. NPR calls it “the vegetable world’s ugly duckling”, but we like to think its looks add to its charm…Celery root is a perfect addition to any mash. Fledging Crow Farm (OG) or Barber Farm (OG)
Storage: Up to 2 weeks in fridge.
Celeriac french fries: cut into short stalks, boil for two minutes, then cover with a mix of salt & pepper, garlic, and rosemary. Bake at about 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until golden brown.

Kale TOSS CHOPPED INTO VEG SOUP Easy to cook and incredibly healthy. For a quick dish, cook kale for a minute in a pot of boiling water. Drain, squeeze out excess water, and sauté with olive oil and garlic for just a couple minutes. Remember to try kale chips if you haven't yet. Just strip the leaves off the stems, place in a plastic bag with a little oil and soy sauce mixture (by little we mean enough to lightly coat—worse thing you can do is add too much), shake the bag, and place in the oven at 280 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Running Creek Farm (Greenhouse)
Storage: Keep very dry in the fridge, up to 1 week.
