RECIPES AND COOKING 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!
