Recipes and Cooking Tips

Quick Tips: 

  • Eat This First: Romaine Lettuce, Spigariello, and mushrooms

  • This week we have Spigariello, it is technically a leafy broccoli, but more so resembles a broccoli rabe(stem) with hearty kale-like leaves. One way to cook Spigariello is by removing the leaves from the stem, chopping the stem up and adding it to a pan with olive oil and garlic. Once the stems have softened, add in the chopped leaves and spice to your liking. Spigariello mixes well with meats, vegetable stirs, or pasta. Enjoy!

  • Winter squash are in and just in time for Thanksgiving or friendsgiving! Add squash as a side dish for a sweet and nutty flavor or as a filling for a pie, such as this recipe here. Squash also makes for a great thanksgiving soup.
