PRODUCE SHARES

  • Produce

  • sugar snap peas
  • swiss chard
  • onions
  • garlic
  • malabar spinach
  • white radish – i am seeing a lot of raves on radish fritters from my friends — I think it is trending and sounds like a great way to use this veg that can be challenging for some. this recipe looks really great, and can be modified for whichever radishes you have. It calls for goat cheese, yogurt,mint, cukes. Let me know if you try it. It is fancier than most, but there are other simpler ones there. try one that suits your cooking level.

Beets

Besides supplying good amounts of protein, phosphorus, and zinc, beet greens are also a great source of fiber. Packed with antioxidants, they’re high in vitamin B6, magnesium, potassium, copper, and manganese, and low in fat and cholesterol.”
