Hi Oahu Fresh family! We are so glad to see the sun again and I know that our farmers are even happier. While it is still very wet around the island, we can expect farmers to be getting back out in their fields now that the rain has let up. Of course all that rain also brings weeds, so they will be even busier than usual soon!
This week, despite the recent rains, we are bringing you plenty of healthy greens! Kale and eggplant will be in your bag from Pacific Gateway Farmers, collard greens and long/string beans from Ho Farms, beautiful hydroponic lettuce from Mari’s Garden, and juicy clementines from Kama`aina Land Plant Rentals and Nursery. There’s a nice variety of greens here that you can use to make someone special a delicious and healthy meal for that special day at the end of this week…or treat yourself, you’re worth it!!
Chopped Collard and Kale Salad with Lemon Garlic Dressing Easy to prep, this salad can be a meal in itself!
Baba Ganoush A vegetarian eggplant dish, this one is even better if it has a day or two to sit.
Here’s an unusual use for your green beans–Green Bean Slaw (on an Egg Sandwich)
Cornbread and Collards This recipe is a little longer on the ingredients than many that we post here, but I think it’s worth a try!
If you happen to have any clementines already and want to do something different with them, try this Clementine Cake recipe. It calls for 4-5 clementines so you may need a few extra.
Happy Valentine’s Day–we love eating locally grown!
