Refresh your Root-ine

Posted by Boston Organics on Mar 7, 2022 5:00:00 AM

In the cold months, we slow down a litte, spend more time inside, bundle up in layers...and eat root vegetables. With the yearning for sunshine and warmth may come a yearning for springtime vegetables. While we're not quite at the point where winter and roots are going away (regardless of what the occasional spring-like day might suggest), there is still plenty of good eating to be had from these relatively low carbon-footprint local vegetables. Explore techniques and recipes for The Classics, Glazing, Braising, Pickling or Fermenting, Chips, Gnocchi, Au Gratin, Latkes, Salads and more!

Build Your Own Grain Bowl

Posted by Boston Organics on Feb 21, 2022 8:47:07 AM

The abundance of dried or sprouted beans, wintery root vegetables, and dark leafy greens available at this time of year and the many varieties grains we've got available have got us thinking about Grain Bowls! And what could be better than building one from the bounty in your Boston Organics box. Follow our recipe or use it to inspire a version that speaks to you or go totally off script creating your own! 

Creating a grain bowl is basically a three step process:

  • choose your base of a grain and green
  • build your middle from our fresh organic fruits and vegetables 
  • top it off with the fun stuff
  • optional 4th step - make it substantial!

Fresh from the Farm: Shifting Perspective

Posted by Rebecca Bilodeau on Feb 20, 2017 9:15:53 AM

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.
