Organic Green Onions 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 Grilled Green Onions, and sub them in here!


Organic Sage from Blue Lagoon
This earthy, peppery herb is a member of the mint family and adds a crisp comfort to dishes. It has something of a pine-like aroma when raw, and you're more than likely familiar with the flavour, even if you've never used it on its own! 

Try making some Sage infused Honey for your tea.



Organic New Potatoes from Oak Valley Farms
I've said it once, and I'll say it again: Jumping potatoes are the go-to method/recipe of the summer (and forever). Simple, one-pot, and easy to incorporate ANY herb you like. 


Spray Free Green Leaf from Jonothan Farms
Sweet and tender! This leafy lettuce adds a crisp freshness to salads or sandwiches without much water content!

Try making these Veggie Filled Lettuce Wraps



Spray Free Beefsteak Tomato from Greenland Garden
One of the largest varieties of tomato! These are sweet and meaty.
Arguable the ultimate BLT tomato, they're also great for slicing up into a "flattened" caprese!

Honestly, these tomatoes are my favourite. 


Spray Free Dill from Twin River Garden
Perfect with fresh fish or other seafood. Also AMAZING in a simple Honey Dill Sauce


Spray Free Broccoli from Jonothan Farms
It’s so good! We made these delicious Roasty Toasty Brocoli 


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!

How does a Beet Brownie sound?

Zucchini from Jonothan Farms
Zucchini is also known as summer squash and it has a very mild taste that is slightly sweet, grassy, or green. Because of zucchini's mild flavour, it can be prepared in numerous ways, and it shows up in a wide variety of recipes.

Maybe let's give zucchini noodles  a come back!

Golden beets are slightly sweeter and less earthy than their red counterparts!

I can't wait to try this Shawarma-Spiced Beets with Garlicky Labneh



Spray Free Gooseberries from Jonothan Farms

Their flavour profile spans the spectrum of tart to very sweet, making them a versatile ingredient in the kitchen, too. Whether you want to eat gooseberries fresh, add them to a pie, or stew them to make a sweet jam, gooseberries are up to the task.

 

See you next week!
