Posted by Boston Organics on Apr 9, 2023 9:45:00 AM


What's great for breakfast, lunch or dinner; makes good use of the contents of your organic vegetable box and allows you to be creative? Why a vegetable frittata of course!!

It's the perfect answer to what's for dinner when everyone has gotten home late. Special enough for guests for brunch. While you're at it make two because leftovers are egg-cellent! Wonderful thrown in a pita for a brown bag lunch. Or eaten on the fly for breakfast when you're heading out the door in the morning.

Once you've got a few basic principles down, throw on your chef's hat, open the fridge to pull out whatever you've got on hand and get cooking!

Dips! A Deep Dive

Posted by Boston Organics on Apr 3, 2023 5:30:00 AM

Dips and spreads make the best kind of party food: they’re easy to prepare, feed a crowd, and if you choose wisely, good for you. However their star power extends well beyond bashes - packing lunches is easier and snacking is healthier when you’ve got a delicious dip on hand. And if you toss them on the table during dinner prep, they’re a great way to reduce pre-meal whining too.

Hearty Recipes for Ramadan

Posted by Boston Organics on Apr 3, 2023 5:30:00 AM

Ramadan is the month-long Muslim holiday where observers do not eat from sunrise to sundown. It is a time for self-reflection, and giving back to those less fortunate. Meals are served before sunrise, called suhoor, and after sunset, called iftar, and eaten with family or with the local community.

Refresh Your Root-ine: Roasted Vegetable Tart

Posted by Boston Organics on Mar 21, 2023 10:09:10 AM

Recipe #6 Roasted Vegetable Tart

What's a great way to use up leftovers or all those odds and ends rolling around in the bottom of the vegetable drawer? What's also perfect for a special lunch, light supper or conversation-starting appetizer? And comes together easily, making the best use of whatever you've got on hand? Why a vegetable tart of course!! The key to keeping this tart crisp, crunchy and flavorful is cooking the slower cooking vegetables (read: root vegetables) and those that will release a lot of liquid - like summer squash, mushrooms, peppers - before placing them on the crust. Your best friend here is keeping frozen puff pastry on hand; that way you're ready to go at a moment's notice.

Refresh Your Root-ine: Pot Pie

Posted by Boston Organics on Mar 6, 2023 7:33:42 AM

RECIPE #5 Pot pie

Pot pie is the ultimate winter comfort food, basically a simple stew dressed up with a topping. Great for making ahead, pretty enough for company and easy to whip up with whatever you've got on hand. Pot pies are perfect for repurposing leftovers (some would call it disguising them). We love pot pies for being infinitely adapatable! Make it meaty with leftover turkey or part of a rotisserie chicken. Got a vegan in your house? Fill it up with umami-packed mushrooms and no one will miss the meat. Trying to avoid dairy products? Skip the milk, using only stock. As for the topping, pie crust is traditional but if there's no time for that frozen puff pastry is beautiful and delicious or a biscuit topping (homemade or from a can) is sure to please. Choose your baking dish - round pie plate, square baking pan, cast iron skillet - indiviudal ramekins will elevate your pot pit to something restaurant worthy. The possibilities are endless!
