RECIPES AND COOKING TIPS

Quick Tips

  • Eat this first: Lettuce, Spinach, Scallions, and tomatoes
  • Use scallions as a garnish, in soups/salads, and add it to any stir-fries. To really experience their flavor, roast or grill them whole!
  • Zucchini and yellow squash 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.
  • Add baby spinach to sautés as a side dish, use it as a salad base, or add some to your next smoothie!
  • Add tomatoes to sandwiches, salads, pastas, pizzas, and try them on their own raw! Remember: you can store tomatoes on your counter, not in the fridge. Move them into the fridge if you want to slow down their ripening.
