What to do with them? How to Store? Recipes below!

garlic – we don't need to tell you who to use up this little gem.

(keep in a cupboard or on your counter)

zucchini - check out this list of Food 52's best 31 zucchini recipes of all time. This zucchini ricotta gallete looks incredible.

(store in the fridge in a plastic bag)

scallions – we love scallions, you can add them to just about anything! Please tell me you've tried grilling them. Also, we adore these two ingredient skillet scallions.

(store in the fridge in a bag or in a glass with an inch of water in the bottom, on your counter)

carrots – don’t forget to use the carrot tops in recipes. How about this carrot top soup?

(Remove the carrot tops (they leach moisture from the roots) before storing them both in plastic bags in the fridge)

chives – omlettes, dips, salads!

(store in a glass with an inch of water at the bottom)

oregano – we like to dry our oregano and use in pasta sauce recipes.

(tuck into your chive water or hang to dry and then store for later)

tomatoes – you know what to do!

(DO NOT store the fridge)

swiss chard – both the leaves and stems are edible. We like to saute them in olive oil and garlic, cooking the chopped stems for a few minutes first and then adding in the leaves to wilt. Finish with salt or lemon juice.

(store in a bag in the fridge)


kale – Why not make some yummy kale chips? Don't for get that kale freezes really well, if you don't know what to do with it, simply put it in a big ziplock bag, suck all the air out and then pop in the freezer. It will be perfect for soups or smoothies.

(store in a bag in the fridge)


beans – beans beans beans! We love beans! Especially steamed with butter. What do you think about this bean sandwich?

(store in a bag in the fridge)


beets – remove the tops from the bottoms before storing in the fridge. we like to cut the beets in slices, in half or quarters and then cook in a pan with a bit of water to steam for 5-10 minutes.

(store in a bag in the fridge)
