Dedicated locavores have been eating a lot of root vegetables over the last few months. Fortunately, with fresh cucumbers and heirloom tomatoes coming from Deep Root Organic Coop, the end is in sight.
While we wait for the rest of the local produce to sprout, blossom and ripen, we have a hearty mix of local root veggies and some creative new recipes for the Boston Organics Community to try.
This Puree of Sunchoke Soup is garnished with pickled watermelon radishes and country bread croutons. The combination is a delightful blend of smooth and crunchy, spicy and mild.
We also have a recipe for Roasted Beets with Orange and Thyme that features organic beets from Red Fire Farm and fresh cut thyme from Happy Valley Organics.
And if you're starting to feel like you're in a bit of a "food rut," here are a few simple ideas to help you discover new flavors in the kitchen.
