Recipes and Cooking Tips

Quick Tips: 

  • Eat this first Mesclun, napa cabbage, kalettes
  • Kalettes are a unique cross between kale and Brussels sprouts. These little guys are sweet and peppery. They are great sauteèd, roasted, or tossed with a salad. We have included a couple different recipes below to get you all started!

  • Check out this article by Bon Appetit on the dozens of combos that go well with yogurt! Try adding your trail mix favorites - like sunflower seeds, chocolate chips, and raisins - to your next bowl of yogurt!

  • Napa cabbage is milder and sweeter than regular cabbage. Napa cabbage is often used in stir fries, soups, dumplings, and Korean kimchee. The wonderfully textured, ruffled leaves are excellent in fresh salads and slaws. When braised or simmered, the stalks and leaves become tender, juicy, and sweet.
