Red Beetsred beets

From: Juniper Hill Farm (Certified Organic in Wadhams, NY)

Did you know that a cup of raw beets has only 58 calories? Beets are in the same family as chard and spinach. Chop and slow roast at 350 for 1 hour. Julienne the beets and toss with oil and lemon—beautiful and tasty. Roast, sauté, steam, and more… but try not to boil! Boiling sacrifices the quality and flavor of the beet and releases an unpleasant aroma. More info

Sweet and Salty Beet Burgers

Spinach
Radicle-Spinachsm

From: Radicle Farm (Organically Grown in New York, NY)

Spinach is best when eaten raw or lightly braised. To braise, toss with hot oil and garlic for a few minutes and then add splash of liquid. We like to add Parmesan cheese. If you choose to steam the spinach, wash and steam for just 5-10 minutes. This preparation method preserves nutrient content. More info

Recipes Ideas:
Spinach with Nutmeg and Lemon
Garlic Sautéed Spinach
Perfect Spinach Salad
