Spiral Sausage with Peppers and Onions
This dish could not be easier! I cut one onion and two peppers into strips, then cooked them in a Dutch oven with the sausage.
Know Your Greens!
We are greens heavy these days at the CSA. We wanted to share a few pictures (for identification) and advice.
Strawberry Cobbler
Normally I will just eat strawberries by themselves, but I accidentally squished these so cobbler it is!
Pan Roasted Bok Choy with Miso Soy
This would be amazing with beef or fish. The bok choy is wonderful cold too, so this is perfect for meal prep.
Simple Roasted Asparagus
Simple. Perfect. Delicious.
Chorizo and Black Bean Lettuce Cups
When we get gorgeous lettuce like this, I like to use the leaves as a cup for food. This was super easy to come together since I cook my black beans in large batches and freeze them in 1.5 cup bags. I also made an avocado crema that is so fresh on everything.
Kale Salad with Basil Vinaigrette and Mozzarella
This will be incredible when tomatoes are in season, but for now, it’s super fresh alongside oven roasted chicken.
Quick Carrot Salad with Pesto
Pesto goes a long way in a simple salad of carrots,
Ground Chicken and Bok Choy Bowl
I made this dish because I love bok choy! It’s dubbed a superfood because bok choy is full of selenium which helps clear toxins from the body. This plus it’s a great source of vitamin C. Also I forgot to use the mushrooms from last week and found that if you pulse mushrooms in the food processor, they blend in with any ground meat!
Butternut Squash Soup
I first made this super easy squash soup one night when I had no idea what I was going to feed my family for dinner, and then...
Spaghetti Squash with Chorizo and Black Beans
Remember all that spaghetti Squash I cooked? Here’s what I did with the other half of it. This was just as easy as the pesto and even better: it’s a one pan meal!
Refried Black Beans
Beer Cheese Cornbread
I have been wanting to make something like this for a while, but every time I found a recipe it had a ton of butter on it. I swapped a few things in a recipe and not only did it work, but the crumb is perfect.
Two-Meat Chili with Black Beans and Roasted Sweet Potato
This may be my best chili recipe! While reading several chili recipes I saw one author state that 3 tbsp cornmeal and 1 can of beer gave their chili thickness and depth. They were correct!
Stuffed Mushrooms
I always trying new ways to use veggies in my fridge. I had a lot of cremini mushrooms so I decided to stuff them with Fair Shares ingredients.
Slow-Cooker Kabocha Squash Soup
Wow this was easy!! All I did was cut 2 squash in half and scoop the seeds out. Then I Jenga-ed the pieces in my slow cooker.
Cabbage, Potato, & Polish Sausage One Pot Meal
AKA one of my fave comfort meals of all time! Sometimes I forget about veg in my fridge. I found a cabbage that had been in a drawer for a while and then thought about the potatoes staring at me growing extra eyes all I needed was an onion, polish sausage, and a bit of chicken broth to make this dish.
Oat Breakfast Bars
These are not super sweet so they are perfect for an on-the-go breakfast. They are great for other times in the day as well.
Roasted Cauliflower
This is super easy and very versatile. You can use different seasonings but seriously, when you can get this amazing seasoning in your share, what are you waiting for? I’m gonna put this stuff on everything!
Acorn Squash Curry
I was making a Dogtown Pizza the other night and decided to roast the squash at the same time and it worked beautifully. You can use any winter squash here.
Homemade Healthy Dog Food
Yep! You heard that right. We feed ourselves wholesome food so why not give the best member of the family the same using Fair Shares ingredients. It’s easy, delicious, and so much cheaper than store-bought.
Roasted Sweet Potato Chili
Roasted sweet potatoes are the best addition to chili! The sweetness of the potatoes makes the spicy of the chili really pop, and the texture is a great addition. And the color--come on!
Breakfast of champions! Who doesn’t love a great bowl of oatmeal when you can add so much good stuff to it? I always make enough oatmeal for several days and just refrigerate it.
Swiss Chard Curry
Sometimes the simplest meals are the best. Clean Plate Pantry’s Thai Red Curry Sauce is a staple in my house. I had a lovely bunch of rainbow Swiss Chard and parsley so I chopped them up together and grabbed my curry sauce.
Sausage Rice Skillet
Here’s another dish that’s really versatile. I had a big zephyr squash so I chopped that up to add. You can add Zucchini, broccoli, peppers, tomatoes, or spinach/kale/Swiss chard.
Garlic Zucchini Bites
These were so easy to throw together and they taste great dipped in pizza sauce!
Basil Vinaigrette
Celery Stir Fry
Easy Oven-Roasted Squash
Creamy Corn Bucatini Pasta
This dish was made for corn season! It’s easily adaptable to play up or down the sweet corn flavor.
Carrot Top Pesto
This recipe is super versatile. You could make it just like a pesto and sub carrot tops for basil. I played around with it a bit because I’m using it as a dressing for bowls I’m making ahead for meal prep.
Homemade Ricotta
If you find yourself with more milk than you're able to use or if it starts to go past delicious and you hate to waste it, make up this easy ricotta cheese.
Refrigerator Kale Salad
I love salads that you throw together and they actually taste better the next day, and the day after that. This is a great one.
Blackberry Cocktail or Mocktail
I love blackberries but don't like the seeds. I also love cocktails so this was a great idea to use my blackberries to make a syrup. It's super easy.
Mediterranean Lentil Stew with Swiss Chard
Who says stew is for winter? This is fresh tasting and light thanks to folding in the Swiss chard at the end and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. This might be the perfect summer alternative to salad!
Garlic Scape Falafel
Beth Sorrell's weekly recipe For those of you who haven't used up those scapes yet.
Salad with wheat berries, fresh peas, and garlic scape vinaigrette
We’ve been getting such delicious lettuce the last several weeks and I am so excited it’s garlic scape season! I love making a simple vinaigrette with them. It’s also pea season so why not add some of these sweet peas to the salad.
Kale, Kohlrabi, and Japanese Turnip Slaw
Beth Sorrell's Week 11 recipe is ideal for the season
Fair Shares Niçoise Salad
Sheet Pan Chicken and Asparagus with Kohlrabi Greens Rice
I love simple dinners. This was a really good one. I’ve never cooked with kohlrabi before, I just peel and slice or grate the bulb part and toss the greens. This was a great way to use the greens. I’m saving the bulb for a salad later. Stay tuned for that.
