Eat This First: Green Cabbage, Purple Top Turnips, Baby Kale

Winter Meal Planning Strategy: We realize that it can be easy to let vegetables that store well - like potatoes, carrots, onions, turnips, and more pile up in your refrigerator. While some of these can make delicious snacks with minimal prep, we have a few cooking techniques that make it much easier to create delicious, healthy meals while clearing out the refrigerator.

  • Don't be afraid to add & subtract ingredients based on what you have available! You'll see that there are several cooking techniques featured in our recipes this week: braising, roasting, soup/stew, frittata, salad, and gratin. Different techniques will lend different textures and flavors, so it's a good idea to try cooking one vegetable a few ways to find your favorite.
  • Cook in large batches. If you chop and roast a baking tray (or two) of carrots, beets, potatoes, onions, and cabbage, then you will be able to use them in various recipes and meals throughout the week: add to an omelette in the morning, serve over greens or quinoa for lunch with a delicious maple vinaigrette for flavor, and puree some broth, butter, and spices for soup for dinner.
  • Try different seasonings for variety with batch cooking. Cook a tray of beets, carrots, and turnips with honey or maple and ginger. Cook a tray of potatoes, carrots, and onions with pepper and spices.
