Recipes and Cooking Tips

Quick Tips

  • Eat this first: Mesclun, mushrooms, and corn (be sure to store corn in the fridge for the best flavor and texture)
  • Leeks can replace onions in almost any dish. We generally only eat the lower white and light green parts of the leeks. Cooked at a low heat, leeks slowly break down to a succulent base. Give it a try with pasta sauces, risottos, and soups. Here are some instructions on how to clean leeks.
  • Sweet Italian peppers are frequently sautéed in olive oil and added to a variety of foods such as pasta, meats, pizza, or salad greens. They can also be roasted, filled with stuffings, served fresh in salads or eaten as a snack!
  • Oyster mushrooms have a light and buttery subtle flavor and are often used in Asian cooking. Try sautéing them with a little oil or butter!
