Hi Oahu Fresh family! We’re moving towards summer so fast-I hope you’re planning fun things to do as soon as Memorial Day weekend arrives!
For this week’s bag, we’re bringing you a lot of freshness…baby bok choy & Hauula tomatoes from Green Growers, swiss chard from Ho Farms, long beans from Pacific Gateway Farmers, lemons from Hoalike Farm, organic carrots from Kahumana Farm, and finally either sweet potatoes or squash grown by the Ag students at Leilehua High School! What a great bag! Here’s a few ideas on how to use your local produce this week:
Bok Choy, Carrots, and Green Beans Stir Fry A few tips on this one: your carrots will take the longest to cook so you may want to add them a little earlier than the other items. Cut all produce into similar sizes. I would add garlic and ginger too, and of course you can add tofu, some kind of meat, or even shrimp if you want.
Carrot and Sweet Potato Mash This one is paleo and vegan, if you are into that! Also be aware that this recipe uses 2# of sweet potatoes and carrots, but we’ve only got about 1/2# of each, so you will need to reduce everything accordingly (for example 3 cups stock would be 3/4c).
