I am a fan of steamed kabocha squash because it’s natural delicate flavor is delicious on its own. I’m also, however, a fan of deserts. Here’s a kabocha squash pie with a little lime in the crust for a refreshing flavor combo.

we usually add chard to an egg scramble, or mix it in with lettuce, or sauté it with veggies on hand. Here’s a recipe that highlights the chard, and who doesn’t love the complex flavor of caramelized onions!? Yum

Love pesto? Try a Fennel or Cilantro and Lime pesto this week. Toss the fennel or cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, cashews, and salt into the blender then use your delicious sauce to top fish, chicken, eggs, or veggies.

Marinade ideas that would be good on chicken, fish, potatoes, or veggies:

  • Orange, celery, lime, fennel
  • Orange, Calendula, Lavender
  • Lime, Fennel, Cilantro

Enjoy!

From the Farm
