The first post summer bag is full of late season goodies: arugula, lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, mushrooms, zucchini and green onion! The mushrooms in the bag this week come from Waimanalo’s Small Kine Farm, and we are excited to feature them again.
Chanterelle Tartines This is really just sauteed mushrooms on toast with a bit of cheese, although it sounds fancier in French! Scroll down for the mushrooms recipe & substitute your local portabellos in this elegant and quick snack, perfect for pupus on the lanai.
Arugula Salad with Lemon Parmesan Dressing Use one of last week’s lemons if you have any left!
A few notes to share: we hope you have been enjoying the items in the bags this summer. Please remember that our goal is to source local ingredients first and foremost. There may be weeks where the same item will show up in the bag; this is because it is important to us to buy direct from local farmers and to buy what they have in season. If there are items that you would like to see but haven’t, please let us know! We would be happy to express that interest to the farmers we work with and see if they would be willing to grow specific items. On occasion some items may be difficult to obtain in quantity, such as eggs, and we ask for your patience. If there is not enough to fill each of the orders, we will make it up as soon as possible.
Also please remember to provide your bags to the delivery staff each week. You can leave it out on the door or give it directly to them. It’s important to do this because replacing bags can become costly; we want to keep our costs to you as low as possible!
