Oahu Fresh will be taking the week of Thanksgiving off (Nov. 23 & 24). We hope you have a wonderful day, and enjoy lots of island fresh produce with your Thanksgiving feast. We’ll back on track the following week. If you feel that you may need extra items for your dinner please order them for delivery the week before!!
Happy Fall! This week’s bag is full of delicious green things…braising greens, nalo greens, chinese parsely, avocados, and onions and tomatoes. Here’s a few ideas on what and how to make some great meals.
If you have too many onions, take a few minutes and dice them then freeze them in ice cube trays. Next time you need diced onions, just pop a few cubes out and you’re ahead of the game.
Braised Greens with Anchovies and Capers–easy and fast!
Tuna Ceviche with Avocado and Cilantro…healthy. Chinese parsely and cilantro are the same, the terms are interchangeable.
Creamy Avocado-Jalepeno Dip Just in time for Sunday game time!
Meat Loaf with Creamy Onion Gravy perfect for cooler weather dinners
Cooler temperatures, but still warm breezes…Hawaii is a wonderful place to be in autumn.
While folks on the mainland are gearing up for even cooler weather, we are enjoying cool nights and very warm days, perfect for produce like squashes. This week we are happy to be bringing new items from Ho Farms: butternut squash and long squash. Many of you who are here from the mainland are going to be familiar with butternut squash. If you’re not, this week’s post will help you get started on trying out this fantastic autumn staple. Ho Farms is located in Kahuku, and they hope to providing more squash over the next few months. We may not have enough butternut for everyone this week, so we will provide long squash if the butternut runs short. We hope you enjoy whichever one you receive, and as always please share your recipes and creations with us!
Grilled Corn and Arugula Salad 30 minutes (plus some soaking time)
Aloha everyone! This week’s bag is shaping up: we’ve got arugula, lettuce, tomatoes, avocados(organic!), chinese parsely, and Maui onions. Here are few recipes:
Spicy Chicken & Arugula Sandwich I just ate dinner but this recipe is making my mouth water…
Open Face Brie, Apple, & Arugula Sandwich uh oh! delish…
Greek Salad Instead of Romaine, try this salad using your hydroponic lettuce. Different texture= fun in the mouth!
More to come!
Aloha Oahu Fresh members! We are really trying to get some late summer melons in this week’s bag; as of this posting, it’s still up in the air but we’re keeping our fingers crossed! Your bag will have lettuce, tomatoes, nalo greens, long beens, and sweet potatoes though. Here are a few ideas to keep using your local produce in fun and delicious ways:
Long Beans with Egg Easy! Great for any meal, and you could add a salad of Nalo Greens to round it out.
Thai Lettuce Wraps Whenever we have extra salad greens I try to think of other ways to use the hydroponic lettuce. It holds just about anything, so try these veggie wraps. There seem to be alot of ingredients but it’s mostly things you probably already have in stock. If not, substitute at will!
Emeril’s Mixed Baby Greens with Goat Cheese and Balsamic Lager Dressing Sometimes you want to make a really spectacular dressing…this is one!
Oven Roasted Tomatoes Stuffed with Goat Cheese In case you have leftover goat cheese from the mixed greens salad!
