Eat more vegetables.
Theme: Scrub-a-Dub
We know peeling vegetables isn't exactly a fun kitchen task, but it's something we all gotta do.....or do we?? Let's talk about the vegetable scrubber. Stuff like carrots, potatoes, etc. are the perfect segue out of peeling and into a beautiful world filled with great fiber. Scrubbing means that you're getting all the rich nutrients and dietary fiber from the skin of those veggies (and the great texture and taste)...not to mention all the time you're saving! Invest in a cheap vegetable scrubber.

  • 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.

Storage: Toss in the freezer.
Simple Pizza Sauce—use your puree here instead of tomato paste and water

Green Cabbage Bright and crisp while raw, this cruciferous vegetable mellows when cooked. A little butter and salt over gently cooked cabbage goes a long way and pairs well with roasted meats. Raw cabbage is great for a kicker winter salad— add shredded cabbage to a bowl of hearty greens, then toss in salty cheese, crunchy nuts, and cranberries or roasted beets. Markristo Farm (CO) 
Storage: Keep dry in a plastic bag a weeks in the fridge.

Storage: Up to a month in the fridge.
STANDARD & FAMILY Shallots A member of the allium family, shallots are milder than onions or garlic. When slowly cooked, shallots become sweet. Toss with oil and salt, then cook in a warm oven until they soften. Shallots also taste great raw, especially in salad dressings. Try whisking together minced shallots, lemon juice, salt & pepper and olive oil to top a kale salad. Fledging Crow (OG)
Storage: One month in the pantry or fridge. 
Caramelized Shallots
Shallot Vinaigrette
Pan-seared chicken breasts with shallotsEasy and delicious, this would go well served over mashed redskin potatoes and sprinkled with fresh chives.   
Sea bass with lemon-shallot butter –As Pioneer Woman says, this is a "method", not a recipe, and is a quick treatment for many different types of fish including salmon or haddock. 
Simple shallot pasta—Olive oil, shallots, pasta, and parmesan—doesn't get much simpler than that. Parsley and/or chives would jazz it up even further. Grab a baguette to soak up the juices.
Sweet Shallot Dressing—Roasting the shallots makes this dressing a special treat.
Frozen 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 OR throw on the bottom rack under the broiler for about 15 minutes. To boost the flavor, toss with raisins, pine nuts, crushed red pepper, and salt. Dagele Brothers Farm (IPM) 
Storage: Pop in the freezer. 
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.
