This week’s bag is full of amazing locally grown veggies. Lettuce this week is coming from the Leilehua High School Ag Program, sweet potatoes (purple!) and cucumbers from the Pacific Gateway Farmers in Kunia, organically grown carrots from Kahumana Farm, beautiful slicing tomatoes from Green Growers, and green onions from a new farm partner, Nalolicious Farm in Waimanalo.
Here are our suggestions for using this week’s items:
Purple Potato Salad with Gorgonzola and Bacon So technically this recipe is referencing regular potatoes, but I think using the sweet potatoes would be really good!
Mustard Glazed Carrots You could easily sub in sweet potatoes and even add the green onions to this one.
Cucumber Watercress Salad This recipe is a simple one to make with all local veggies, and you could also add your tomatoes to it. Look for Sumida Farms watercress at local stores…and hopefully we’ll get some in the bags soon!
