Crunchy Squash Seeds - Whole Squash Cookery Part: One

Crunchy Squash Seeds - Whole Squash Cookery Part: One

Our farmers work so hard to grow all of the beautiful vegetables that we get from them.  We are always looking for more ways to honor all their care and effort by using as much of every vegetable as we possible can. That's where these crunchy and addictive roasted squash seeds come in.  Since we always prefer less dishes, this is also a great way to reuse the pan you roasted your squash in before you clean it, ensuring that you get a bonus snack for the next day out of your dinner.

Shiitake (Fries)

These Shiitake Fries are so easy and fast, we make them for a snack anytime we are craving a crunchy treat, if done right you get a deeply flavorful mushroom french fry that is healthy and delicious, either on their own or as an addition to other dishes. This is barely a recipe, it is so easy, but, There is a secret trick - the quality of the Shiitakes, we use our Oak Log grown Shiitakes because they are big and plump and full of flavor, smaller shiitakes may work but they will be a little more leathery in texture.1/2 Lb - Oak Log Shiitakes

Last Minute Tomato Sugo

Last Minute Tomato Sugo

Sugo means sauce in Italian and this is a super quick tomato sauce that can be made in under 20 minutes. It is incredibly flavorful and so versatile, we put it on pasta, pizza, or dress vegetables with it; anytime I make it I always test it by scooping a healthy amount on a fresh loaf of bread(chef tax!)
