Happy almost summer Oahu Fresh fans! We have a packed bag this week for you–plenty of farm fresh produce that will make you feel great about what you’re eating and where it comes from. In this week’s bag there will be long beans, papaya, and cucumbers from Pacific Gateway Farmers in Kunia, swiss chard from Ho Farms, avocados from Kama`aina Land Plant Nursery, carrots from Kahumana Farm, and certified organic hydroponically grown lettuce from Mari’s Garden!
Original Sunrise Smoothie: This recipe comes from KCC’s collection A Sweet Dash of Aloha.
2T quick oats, 1/2 c low fat milk, 1/2 papaya very ripe, 1 large frozen banana, 1T orange juice concentrate, 1 tsp vanilla extract, ice, and 2T fat free whipped topping.
Soak the oats in the milk for 30m in the refrigerator. Seed and peel papaya. Combine oats, milk, papaya, orange concentrate, vanilla, and ice in blender and puree until smooth. Divide into two portions and top each with 1T whipped topping.
Shrimp and Coconut Curry with Green Beans use your long beans in this one!
Goat Cheese, Lentil, and Brown Rice Rolls Swiss chard leaves wrapped around the lentils and brown rice mix and baked with marinara sauce.
Roasted Carrots with Cumin This is for 1-1 1/2 lbs carrots, and you will be getting a 1/2 lb, so you will need to reduce everything accordingly. This link also has a few other variations if you don’t like cumin or want to try something else!
