Aloha everyone and welcome to summer! It’s unofficially here, although you wouldn’t know it by the rains we’ve been having. This week we’re so pleased to bring you some wonderfully summer-y produce despite the rains…we have tomatoes vine ripened from Green Growers, butternut squash and string beans from Ho Farms, fresh crispy lettuce from 808 Farm Fresh, mango from Frankie’s Nursery, and green peppers from Pit Farms.
Many times I think of butternut squash as a fall veggie and so recipes with it tend to be heavier than you may want for hot weather. This time I endeavored to find a summer recipe for it…and succeeded! Summer Butternut Squash Soup, with crabmeat, would be a great start to a light meal.
If you are looking for something new to do with your tomatoes try slow roasting them. It brings out the flavor so intensely! Slow Roasted Tomatoes. This would be a great addition to pastas, wraps, and sandwiches.
Green Pepper and Onion Pizza An easier way to get the kids to eat their veggies.
Use your amazing lettuce and tomatoes here on this BLT with a Fried Egg and Cheese and have a wonderful morning!
Enjoy Oahu Fresh Members and thank you for helping us support local farmers!
