Asian Pack

 

Ingredients to inspire your Asian-themed dining adventures! 
Chinese Chicken Salad (fancy)Chinese chicken salad (simple – shred Napa cabbage, carrot, chicken breast; top with snow peas, celery, and seasoned rice vinegar), broccoli beefand stir frys galore! We always keep dumplings in the freezer – they’re a delicous andquick snack or supper! These vegetable dumplings are my daughter’s favorite. The carnivores in my life enjoy them, too, but prefer these Easiest Pork and Cabbage Dumplings Ever.

Dip Pack

 

Sometimes we just need dip! Salsa roja, salsa fresca, pico de gallo, salsa verde, guacamole, spinach dip, flavored hummus, and onion dip are all great options with this mix of goodies! This pack certainly adds veggies to complement snacktime and your south-of-the-border-themed appetizers and dishes.

 

See your state Contribution Page for pack details!

Roasting Veggie Pack

 

Packed with root veggies galore, there’s a ton of nutritional variety and it is so pretty! When we get this pack we chop everything right away and put it in ziplock bags, and then each time we would like roasted veggies, we grab some and follow the directions below! NOTE: Be careful when leaving roasted veggies out on a sheet pan to cool. It’s so easy to graze on it all afternoon, and before you know it, you’ll have eaten most of the pan and there won’t be enough for dinner! This is a serious issue in our house!

 

We love roasted veggies in our tacos and burritos. Remember to include leftovers as delicious cold salad toppers!

 

See your state’s Contribution Page for pack details!

 

Simple Roasted Veggies

Peel and Cube in 1″ pieces any/all the items from your pack!

Put them in a ziplock bag and drizzle in enough Olive Oil to cover, then I add salt and pepper to taste, and about a tbsp of onion powder. Add a tsp or two of any other herbs you love – we love thyme and rosemary! – and unpeeled garlic cloves if you love roasted garlic as much as we do.

Shake and shake and shake, then dump onto a pan. Put in over at 375. Stirring every 15 minutes if it is not single layer and cook until fork soft. About 45 min to 1 hour!

 

Feeling adventurous?

Mix up the seasonings and include about a tsp of cumin. After roasting, finish with a splace of red wine or balsamic vinegar!

Fresh Basil

Approx 1 Lb

 

Fresh basil means homemade pesto in this house! 

Combine with the tomato  add-on for caprese salad or homemade tomato sauce, enjoy with eggs and bruchetta, too! Don’t forget pizza! Pesto instead of red sauce makes for a killer pizza base!

This is a much-used pesto recipe here. We omit the cheese for our dairy-free family members, and our dairy eaters prefer pecorino to parm to top pesto.

Try Garlic Pesto Chicken!

Cauliflower
Approx 12 heads

 

Cauliflower is SO versatile! Do you eat a paleo or low carb diet, or do you just make sure to serve a veggie or two every night for dinner?  Either way this is a great opportunity to get your hands on lots of Cauliflower to par boil and freeze! Make last-minute dinners easy, and don’t forget to prep and freeze cauliflower crust for gluten-free pizza! Have your tried cauliflower in soup? It’s killer! Try it here, in Killer Cauliflower Soup!
 
Roast the whole head: Brush with olive oil, sprinkle with garic, and roast the whole head. I’ll cut into steaks, roast, and serve with salsa or chimichurri for my vegetarian kiddos, or chop and make seasoned “taco meat” and add lentils or quinoa. 

Or, if you want a slightly naughty and amazing and kid-friendly dish:

Recipe:
Steam cauliflower florets to just-tender
Dip one side in egg wash, then dip in Parmesan cheese,
Pan-fry in a bit of olive oil until golden brown and delicious!

Our kids will annihilate two heads of cauliflower in one sitting when we prepare it this way. A Sally family secret recipe… now not-so-secret!

 
I bet this would work beautifully in an air fryer!

Cara Cara Pink Oranges
Approx 40 Lb

Cara Cara Oranges are the perfect kid snack! Juicy, very sweet, low acid, and usually seedless, these are perfect served in wedges on a plate or in your beverage.

ORGANIC

D’Anjou Pears

Approx 70 count

 

D’Anjou pears are sweet and juicy – a great addition to any lunchbox, recipe, or tabletop display. When perfectly ripe for fresh eating, the stem end will have a little give, then refrigerate to hold ripeness level. This is Tanya’s favorite slicing pear. If you don’t eat them quickly enough, they’re marvelous in smoothies and pear butter.

 

Are you feeling fancy? Here’s a recipe for Pear Croissant - it requires dough overnight in the fridge, so plan accordingly!

Local Texas Honey

Approx 1 gallon

 

Honey in a plastic jug. Delicious! For more general information on honey, see 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/honey

 

Wonderful sweetener for hot drinks, yogurt, granola and oatmeal, marinades and dressings, and grilled fruit; use as a sugar substitute in many recipes (3/4 cup honey to 1 cup sugar) and as a substitution for syrup on toast, pancakes, and waffles. Historically, honey has been used in many ways for health and medicinal benefits.
