Benders!

We have some new veggie additions this week, as things are FINALLY starting to take off! I know some of my customers will be thrilled to see the sugar ann snap peas in their basket this week. 🙂 They really are the perfect go-to beach/hiking snack, for all ages.

Here is the full list of what you will find this week:

  • arugula
  • asian braising greens
  • broccoli raab
  • garlic scapes
  • baby napa cabbage
  • radish
  • red romaine lettuce
  • salad mix
  • sugar snap peas

Raab is similar to broccoli, just a tad bit more bitter. It’s a favorite in Italian dishes, and it’s great sauteed with eggs or thrown into an easy pasta with olive oil, parmesan, sea salt, and a squeeze of lemon.

Asian braising greens are a mix of tatsoi, kale, bok choy, and mizuna.  They can be eaten fresh, for a spicy flair, or cooked with like you would any green.

The new brewery opening this week in Frankfort, Stormcloud, will have an “Echo Bend” pizza, which will feature a changing selection of our available goods. Last night they topped the Bender with snap peas, scapes, basil, and roasted radish.
