 Hello everyone,

Pick up is  Wednesday, July 25th from 4pm – 6:30pm outside the entrance of 331 East 70th Street. Here are the list of vegetables, fruit and cheese for this week. I have included some seasonal and easy recipes that can be used for some of our ingredients. Enjoy!

Vegetables :

Corn ( 3 ears per share )

1 1/2 lbs. Red Potatoes

Arugula Bunch

Radish Bunch

Onion Bunch

1 Head of Garlic


Vegetable Recipes:

Before I list off tips and recipes for the day I tried to find a recipe that had a majority of our ingredients for the week, and this Charred Corn tacos with Zucchini and Radish Slaw comes pretty close.

Corn Salad with Cilantro and Caramelized Onions

Sweetcorn Fritters with Homemade Ketchup

Corn on the Cob with Lime and Cayenne

 Red Potatoes:

Roasted Potatoes can be used as a side dish for any meat. It is always a delicious addition to chicken, fish, or red meat. I am obsessed with rosemary and have put this recipe from Epicurious to good use.  

Grilled Potato Salad: Replace summer squash with our zucchini share.

Arugula, Pear and Potato Quesadilla: This recipe is based on a gluten free and vegan diet. The tortilla used can be replaced by any other brand or type as can the coconut oil.

Blue Cheese and Red Potato Tart 


Arugula Pesto Wheat Berries Recipe: If you are not one for arugula in a salad, try this arugula pesto recipe.  Replace Wheat Berries with anything you like; quinoa, rice, barley, or bow tie pasta. Personally, I love bulgur in this recipe.   

Spiced, Sauteed Avocado and Arugula

Shaved Fennel and Arugula Salad: Just in case you have been swamped in fennel lately, which I know you have, here is a tasty arugula salad topped with a simple lemon and olive oil dressing. This recipe also calls for zucchini.
