Greetings Oahu Fresh ohana! This week we have a great bag of veggies and fruit-roma tomatoes and swiss chard from Ho Farms, fresh hydroponic lettuce from 808 Farm Fresh, corn and zucchini from Pit Farm, and mixed citrus and avocados from Kama`aina Land Plant Rentals and Nursery.
How to use this fresh wonderful produce to your advantage? Well here are a few ideas…
Kahuku Corn Chowder with Cannellini beans and kale–you can use your swiss chard instead of kale. If you don’t have or want to use nutritional yeast (which is often used in vegan/vegetarian recipes as an alternative for cheesy flavor and creaminess), you can just add cornstarch or arrowroot to thicken and some grated cheese.
Grilled tomato, mozzarella, swiss chard wraps These look like pillows of goodness…I never thought to do this but it’s brilliant!
Avocado Citrus Smoothie Use any combo of citrus that comes in the bag and your avocado for a vitamin packed smoothie you can sip on your way to work or at your desk.
For more ideas, head over to Design My Meals–they’ll create recipes based on what’s in the bag this week and what you have at home already!
