Spray Free Romaine from Wild Earth Farms

Rinse all the lettuce then put in a salad spinner or use paper towel to dry, and place in a sealed bag in the fridge. Romaine isn't hard to use, you can put pieces in your sandwiches or wraps or make a simple caesar or garden salad! Try this Tomato Cucumber Salad with Feta! 

Organic Green Onion from Blue Lagoon

Sweeter and milder than mature onions, and more potent than scallions, these are perfect for slicing thin as garnish, caramelized over the grill, or turned into soup! 

Check out this recipe for Creamy Green Onion Soup, and sub them in here!

Organic Green Kale from Blue Lagoon

Rich, earthy and full of minerals. Kale is familiar to most! Check out our featured recipe at the bottom of the page where we blend kale with garlic scapes to make a tasty twist on pesto! Or maybe try to recreate our Kale and Quinoa Salad if you are up for the challenge. 

Organic Rhubarb from Blue Lagoon 

A Manitoba staple! Amazing in pies, reduced into a tasty syrup (you can make our Rhubarb refreshers at home (🤫) or just roll in honey or sugar and eat raw!

Check this Rhubarb Upside Down Cake out for a hot day.

Spray Free Red Beets from Jonothan Farms

Sweet and nutritious! Beets are known for roasting and borscht, but they've also been known to sneak their way into a desert or two, lending rich sweetness, minerals and moisture retention! They're packed with minerals and dietary nitrates, which improve oxygen flow through the bloodstream and regulate blood pressure! 

Spray Free Parsley from Jonothan Farms

Fresh and lightly peppery, parsley plays nicely in cocktails, atop buttery potatoes and torn or chopped over just about any fat-rich meat! 

Treating the parsley much like a bunch of flowers will keep it fresh longer. Trim the stems slightly, and without washing place the bundle in a container filled with about 1 inch of water. 

I am looking forward to this Quinoa Tabbouleh Recipe.

Spray Free Turnips from Jonothan Farms

Part of the brassica family, these are no stranger to most supermarkets here in Winnipeg, yet many have never ever cooked with them! They can sub in for a variety of vegetables in your current favourites: gratin or mashed in place of potato is a staple, pickled or served raw on a crudite platter for a little more zing, or try incorporating them into a matignon alongside your favourite braised or roasted meat, where they'll happily soak up the flavour!

Maybe Try this Sautéed Japanese Turnips With Turnip Greens Recipe

Spray Free Bok Choy from Jonothan Farms

The attractive white-green contrast means that the vegetable is often cooked whole, while slightly larger ones are halved or quartered lengthwise. The stems are juicy and crunchy whereas the thin leaves wilt quickly when cooked. Bok choy can be boiled, steamed, stir-fried, and used to fill dumplings. The flavour of all bok choys are subtle compared to many other members of Brassicaceae—mildly sweet and sometimes with a faintly bitter undertone.

Try this 10 minute Lemon and Garlic Bok Choy

Spray Free Radish Jonathan Farms

Peppery and fresh, and you can DEFINITELY eat the greens, too! These don't get NEARLY enough love. I love these absolutely on their own, sliced with a bit of salt in the morning next to some creamy scrambled eggs, but if you want some inspiration on how to use these in their entirety,  here are some amazing recipes using the entire radish. Try one, try them all!

Spray Free Leek from Loewen Homestead

These awesome alliums are milder than most of their cousins, with a drawn out sweetness that adds depth to many dishes! The white bases can be used in place of most onions, while the green bundle of leaf sheaths can be used as an aromatic to flavour stocks, soups, rice and noodle dishes, or even cooked crisp and eaten themselves (though they're a bit tougher if not cooked thoroughly!)

We made some Creamy Chicken & Leeks 

Spray Free Romaine from Wild Earth Farms

Spray Free Red Summer Crisp from Jonothan Farms

Very crisp like romaine, but sweet and juicy, without bitterness. The shape of the summer crisp plant is at first open, much like a loose-leaf lettuce, then matures into a heavy, compact bunch or head. 

Let’s try a Red Lettuce Salad

Organic Green Onion from Blue Lagoon

Sweeter and milder than mature onions, and more potent than scallions, these are perfect for slicing thin as garnish, caramelized over the grill, or turned into soup! 

Check out this recipe for Creamy Green Onion Soup, and sub them in here!

Organic Lovage from Blue Lagoon

When the plant is young, its bright green stalks and feathery leaves may resemble parsley, but with a lighter color. The beautifully pointy leaves omit a fresh, celery-like scent, which explains why the herb earned the nickname "false celery." And that's not its only relation to the crisp, green veggie. The seeds of the lovage plant are known as celery seed.

Lovage tastes like celery, with undertones of parsley and hint of anise. It's mild enough to use with fish and poultry, but has just enough spice to make it interesting.

Try this Lovage Tuna Salad

Organic Rhubarb from Blue Lagoon

A Manitoba staple! Amazing in pies, reduced into a tasty syrup (you can make our Rhubarb refreshers at home (🤫) or just roll in honey or sugar and eat raw!

Spray Free Sugar Snap Peas from Jonothan Farms

The snap pea, also known as the sugar snap pea, is an edible-pod pea with rounded pods and thick pod walls, in contrast to snow pea pods, which are flat with thin walls. These are definitely a great snack on their own.

Spray Free Kohlrabi from Jonathan Farms

Available in purple and green varieties, this brassica may seem intimidating if you've never worked with it before. Feat not! Getting to its crisp, juicy core is a fairly simple task even for new knife-wielders (check out our Instagram TV for a quick tutorial!) We just worked out some great recipes with Kohlrabi on the blog, so if you're still stuck on how to eat it after peeling, check these out! Or just snack on it raw!

P.S. The greens are edible and delicious, too!

Spray Free Parsley from Jonathan Farms
