RECIPES AND COOKING TIPS

Quick Tips

  • Eat this first: Mesclun and Cilantro

  • Use mesclun as a bed for eggs and meat, or combine it with different veggies for a refreshing salad!

  • Zucchini can be used to make little boats filled with veggies, or make zucchini "noodles" with a peeler or spiralizer. Or, keep it simple by throwing thick slices on the grill.

  • Napa cabbage can be used in place of any other cabbage for slaws. Try different cooking techniques, like roasting slices of cabbage or grilling wedges for a more mild, tender, sweet result. It's also delicious stir-fried.

  • Kale can be used in sautés, salads, smoothies, and more. Bake it and make kale chips for a fun snack!

  • Mini onions are white onions that are ideal for grilling and adding to veggie dishes. 

  • Use cilantro in Mexican and South Asian dishes, and add it as a garnish for a variety of dishes. It's a staple in salsa and guacamole!
