Happy Summer everyone! We hope you survived Tropical Depression Flossie and didn’t have too much rain or wind damage. Luckily it seems that O`ahu was spared and we haven’t heard too much from our farmer partners yet so we’re keeping our fingers crossed that we were lucky this time.
This week we’ve got a nice bag for you with some hefty produce. Since we went heavy on the greens last week we thought we’d take a break from those this week. You will find two avocados, 2 japanese cucumbers, long beans, long squash, tomatoes, and mixed lettuces in this week’s delivery.
Long squash is a vegetable that holds up well if you leave it out, so don’t feel rushed to use it right away. It is a great addition to soups and since you also have long beans and tomatoes I would recommend finding a soup recipe to take advantage of. If you don’t want to look for one, here’s our suggestions!
Tomato Green Bean Soup You can easily add your long squash to this, cut into chunks or even diced. It could replace the carrot or put it in as an addition!
Creamy Green Bean and Potato Soup This is another one you can add your diced long squash to. Also consider using pork belly or even chicken instead of bacon.
Homemade Pickle Relish An easy way to utilize a few cucumbers, and perfect for taking to the beach for your cook-out.
Avocado Hummus Cucumber Bites A fresh way to think about how to eat dips!
Fresh Tomato Juice in case you have too many tomatoes or are tired of slicing them…
