White CauliflowerCauliflower

From: Stoltzfus Family Farm (Family Farm in Vernon Center, NY)

Cauliflower has an exceptional nutritional density, which means it contains substantial amounts of vitamins and minerals with very few calories. Mark Twain calls cauliflower “cabbage with a college education.” For a quick fix, sauté cauliflower florets and sliced garlic in olive oil until browned and tender. To boost the flavor, toss with raisins, pine nuts, crushed red pepper, and salt. More info

One Comment on “In Your Bag: Week of August 12th”

  1. The eggplant we received was delicious! Every eggplant I’ve had previously always tasted bitter. I didn’t have to soak it in salt or anything. Thank you for giving our household another food to love!
