We start with a simple tomato sauce of tomatoes, garlic, and basil and incorporate a summer medley of roasted onions, fennel, yellow squash, zucchini, and bell peppers. Eat it on its own, hot or cold, or as a garnish for a simple chicken or fish dish! It can also be folded into an omelette or used as a nice base for a rice dish like paella or arroz con pollo. 1 pt.
Salad greens are sourced from Paulette at Satur Farms. Paulette and her husband Eberhard have been farming out on the north fork of Long Island for the last 20 years. They were one of the first farms to work with us, allowing us to pick up from them along their route as we couldn't meet their order minimums at the time. Later we would work together with Satur to bring a lot of fresh produce from local farms to communities in need. These guys focus a lot on soil health in their fields, allowing field to "sleep" and regenerate—and these techniques get passed directly to you by way of really nutritious (and inherently delicious) greens as the base of this meal.
Last year we purchased a case of fresh turmeric instead of ground turmeric, so we picked it. It's now become a staple on the menu. It's bright orange and packed with nutrients, we'll set it up at the end of the line as a fixin' for your guess to top off their bowl or salad!
We just bought a pallet of cheese pumpkins from some neighbors of Paulette's out in Long Island to use in different dishes throughout the season. On this menu, they are the star of our Roasted Pumpkin Dish which is finished with sautéed mushrooms and pomegranate for a really seasonal feel.
