Cooking & Storage Tips

Eat This First: Microgreens! These delicate little sprouts have all the flavor of their grown up counterparts, but in a tiny, nutrient-packed leaf. Enjoy them as a crunchy snack on eggs, sandwiches, soups, hummus dip, or in the grain bowl recipe we feature this week. 

Eat This First: Mushrooms! The texture and quality of these fresh mushrooms is best when eaten within a few days. Enjoy them in soup, stir fry, sauteed in pasta, or the delicious vegetable lasagna recipe we feature this week!

Butternut Squash, Carrots, and Onions, will store best in your refrigerator. You don't have to use them all up right away, as they were chosen and grown for quality storage. For longer-term storage, it's helpful to vent the plastic bags or include a piece of paper towel in the bag to help with moisture. 

Greens should be kept in their plastic bag, and eaten within the week for the best quality.
