Recipes and Cooking Tips

Quick Tips:

  • Eat this first: Baby spinach, broccoli, and cauliflower

  • Asian Pears: Go great in a salad, plus pairs well with nuts and cheese for snacking.

  • Romanesco Cauliflower: It tastes very similar to cauliflower, but with a slightly nuttier, earthier flavor. You can use it as you would cauliflower in a recipe. You can eat it raw, lightly cooked, fully cooked, steamed or lightly seasoned. 

  • Delicata Squash: Cut the top and bottom of the squash off. Cut it the long way, then scoop the seeds out. Cut the squash into 1/2 inches, add a little salt and olive oil, and evening place on a cooking sheet. Preheat the oven to 400°, and let the squash bake for 25min and then flip and cook for another 15-20min.
