Fresh from the Farm: Recipes to Welcome the New Year

Posted by Rebecca Bilodeau on Dec 26, 2016 8:00:00 AM

New Year’s eve can be a roaring fun time, but we know that we need some seriously delicious snacks to help us make it until midnight. Keep your party and table lively with help from Boston Organics. Enjoy the party, skip the grocery store.

Happy 2017!

Boston Organics - Watermelon Radish

Having the right appetizers and snacks will help start the new year off on a delicious foot. Our New Year’s Eve table is sure to feature plenty of veggie based apps, and a few surprises as well. Sweet and Sour Roasted Delicata Squash is a highlight, with a kick of lime and chili sauce complementing the sweetness of honey and perfectly roasted squash. Slices of watermelon radish will add exuberant color, and will sure to be a hit served with savory and fresh feta dip. And we can’t wait to try these Garlicky Pepper Tofu Bites dipped in creamy chili sauce.

We have some classics in mind to satisfy all partygoers. Something about nuggets and ketchup has a universal appeal, a favorite with kids of all ages. We also look forward to experimenting with these Real Veggie Nuggets. Don't forget the chips and guacamole!

Set the TableBoston Organics - Maple Roasted Carrots in Tahini Sauce

If you’re hosting a dinner party, have we got a menu for you. Warm, fragrant rosemary is sure to comfort, while the unique flavor of golden Eat Local brand Honey (made by bees that live right in Mattapan) is a reminder of summer days, and will bring warmth and light to your table in this recipe for Honey-Rosemary Chicken with Grape Tomatoes

For a show-stopping side, we recommend Maple Roasted Carrots in Tahini Sauce with Pomegranate and Pistachios. Deep red pomegranate seeds and cheerful green pistachios are sure to make your plate merry and bright.

Marvelous mugsBoston Organics - Ginger Latte

After weeks of bustle, you may be ready to settle down for a long winter’s nap. Get cozy under some blankets and cuddle up with a book and a gently sweet Ginger Latte that will warm you from the inside. For more beverage recipes to drink by the fire or share with your sweetie, check out our blog. If you'd rather, stick to the classics with a steaming mug of Equal Exchange Hot Cocoa. This hot chocolate mix is so rich and creamy you may need to go back for a second mug.

Have a delicious week, and happy 2017!
