There are a lot of good arguments for including soup on your Thanksgiving menu. Did you know that eating soup with a meal helps to cut calories? It's true. But never mind that. This is Thanksgiving and you shouldn't be counting calories. Moreover, you don't need a reason to enjoy soup. Soup is awesome. That's reason enough. Here are 7 recipes for vegetarian soups that will start your Thanksgiving feast off right.
Note: A few of these recipes have been updated to make them vegetarian (some that originally called for chicken broth now call for vegetable broth). You can view the original version of the recipes by clicking on the recipe names.

With the arrival of the summer solstice last week we can finally announce that summer is here! As we enjoy the abundance of summer sun, the variety of produce in boxes continues to grow as well. With all that sun comes the welcoming of a favorite item, summer squash. On top of that we will continue to offer cherries as an add on and we will have sweet and delicious pea shoots coming to us from Jonathan’s Sprouts. If you didn’t get a chance to order some of the wonderful garlic scapes last week have no fear: they are still available so give them a try. Oyster mushrooms round out the new items that you might see in your delivery and the variety this week is Italian Oyster.

Here at Boston Organics, our four favorite words are: Local Greens are Back! This is always a fun time of year because it means that we get to share with all of our customers the best that Massachusetts farms have to offer. Perhaps even more than the date on the calendar, the arrival of local greens marks the beginning of summer and the local growing season. In addition to greens, the stone fruit and oyster mushrooms found in this week's boxes are just the ingredients to help you get in the spirit of summer - especially as you start to plan cookouts and summer gatherings.

All the snow we've gotten in the last couple of weeks has us looking at things in a new way. Snow-covered streets seem suddenly different, and the landscape keeps shifting as the snow melts, revealing things that were buried. As snow piled up, or got packed down into slippery ice, reliable paths suddenly seem strange. This shift in perspective can help us recognize what we usually take for granted, and look at them in a new light. This week, we are looking at things sideways and reconsidering familiar foods.

There's no doubt about it, the Boston Organics Community sure ate well in 2016. Our farm partners and other suppliers kept us in fresh fruits and vegetables all year long, and it was a joy to see the shift from citrus and root crops in the winter to tomatoes and stone fruit in the summer, and to enjoy all the delicious produce in between.
To start 2017 off on the right foot, we decided to share our top-clicked recipes of the past year, to offer the opportunity to reprise tasty favorites or to find new inspiration for the year ahead.
