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

  

carrots – ah the first carrots of the season! Don’t forget that the carrot greens are edible too, so why not add them to the greens meatlessballs recipe or make some carrot top pesto!?

(store in a bag in the fridge)

 

beets – beets are an amazing vegetable, both the roots and the greens are edible, both raw and cooked. The roots have a sweet, earthy flavour and become sweeter when cooked. The greens taste a lot like chard and can be used the same way. We like our beets steamed or boiled and served up warm, however they're good cold too on a salad.

This sparkling beet lemonade looks good. So do these milk-braised beet greens. Or use the tops in this wilted greens with coconut milk.

(Remove greens up arriving home, leaving 1” of the stem on the roots, store in the fridge)

 

scallions – or green onions are a staple in our fridge. We add them to almost everything, but have you ever tried grilling them?! We’ve also been eyeing up this awesome looking recipe for skillet scallions.

(store in a bag in the fridge)

 

dill – is a very tender herb. We love it on pan fried fish, in pasta, or even coktails!

(store in a glass with about an inch of water in the bottom, in the fridge)

 

garlic scapes – have you tried our garlic scape white bean dip? Or grilled scapes with sun dried tomato pesto? Recipes below!

(store in a bag in the fridge)

  

lettuce mix – you know the drill! Store in the fridge.

  

white turnips – unlike common turnips, these are mild and juicy and refreshing. Both the tops and the roots are edible. Both can be eaten raw or sautéed. 

(If you aren’t going to eat them right away and want them to last in your fridge, we suggest cutting the greens off and storing them separately. They can leach moisture from the roots. Store in a plastic bag in the fridge)

 

snow peas – you should try them in this recipe for crunchy chopped salad – see below.

(store in the fridge)

 

kale – massage your kale! Especially if you're eating it in a salad, raw. 

(store in a plastic bag in the fridge)
