Ingredients

  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 1 ear of corn, removed from the cob
  • 3-4 stems of chard, roughly chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • canola oil
  • salt and pepper
  • optional: cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. Heat oil over medium heat in a non-stick pan or cast iron skillet
  2. Add onions, salt, and pepper to the pan to cook, and stir occasionally, until they start to become translucent.
  3. Add corn, stir, and cook for a few minutes until it's tender (or until it's warmed up if it's already cooked).
  4. Add chard and stir - the greens only need to cook briefly to become tender. 
  5. Make 3 small wells or spaces for the eggs. Add a little extra butter or oil to the pan, if needed, so the eggs don't stick. Crack the eggs into the pan. Let them cook over medium heat to set. Top with cheese if you'd like, and cover with a lid to melt the cheese.
  6. When the eggs are cooked to your liking, serve hot!

Savory French Toast with Cheese & Tomatoes

Recipe Level: Creative | Recipe Speed: Quick | Season: Summer/Fall | Type: Veggie Side | Diet: Veg

Have you ever had savory French toast before? Neither had we, but we realized that it would be an amazing way to use up bread and eggs. Try adding herbs to the egg batter! 

  • 3 eggs, beaten 
  • 1/3 cup milk or non-dairy milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 4 slices bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter or oil
  • a couple ounces of cheese, grated
  • 4 slices tomato
  1. Preheat the broiler in your oven.
  2. Whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper, and chipotle powder. 
  3. Dip the bread in the egg batter, and let it soak for a couple minutes. Then turn the bread, and soak the other side.
  4. Meanwhile, heat the butter or oil in a frying pan that's big enough to hold all four pieces of bread. 
  5. Cook the bread on one side, until lightly browned. Flip.
  6. Sprinkle cheese on the top (browned side of the toast), and add the tomato slices, cutting them to fit onto the bread, without hanging off the sides. 
  7. Remove the pan from the heat, and place it under the broiler. Broil until the cheese is melted, and the tomatoes have wrinkled, slightly.

Apple Carrot Muffins

Recipe Level: Creative | Recipe Speed: Average | Season: All | Type:  Bread | Diet: Vegetarian/DF

The natural sweetness of our Vermont-grown apples and carrots makes these muffins a real treat! Plus, we were able to cut back on the added sugar. 

  • 1c flour

  • 1/2 c sugar

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1 - 2 teaspoons cinnamon or apple pie spice mix

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1 c shredded carrot

  • 1 c shredded or diced apples

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1/3 c vegetable oil or butter

  • 1 tsp vanilla

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F

  2. Place muffin cups into your muffin tin (this recipe made about 10 small muffins, as pictured above)

  3. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt into a large bowl (the wet ingredients will be stirred in later)

  4. In a medium bowl combine eggs, oil, and vanilla, then stir in carrots and apple to coat.

  5. Add the wet ingredient mixture into the flour mixture, and stir just enough to combine and mix in dry ingredients. (Don't overmix)

  6. Scoop the mix into your muffin cups, filling just about 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden.
