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:
- asian braising greens
- broccoli raab
- garlic scapes
- baby napa cabbage
- 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.
