“Cooking Healthy Outside the Box – CSA made easy”



I’ve come up with 3 recipes based on the goodies that are packed in this week’s “Regular box” from “Farm Fresh To You.”

This week, the fresh produce that is in the box is:

  • 3 Yellow Peaches
  • 2 Heirloom Tomatoes
  • 2 bunches of Nantes Carrots
  • 1 lb Gypsy Red Bell Peppers
  • 1 Muskmelon
  • 1 lb Baby Bok Choy
  • 1 bunch Red Beets
  • 1 lb Apricots
  • 1 bunch Green Leaf Lettuce
  • 1 Cucumber

I created recipes (see images, below) based on this list, with using just a few other ingredients.


Click on each title, below, to see the recipe.


Employees -about 1600 ppl come through the cafeteria each day- will have a taste of these 3 dishes…
