Organic Harvest Box for June 25, 2010

Check out this week's luscious Harvest Box! It looks delicious . . .

Did you know that you can use your broccolette almost anywhere you would normally use broccoli? Yes, it's true! Broccolette is as versatile as its cruciferous sister, broccoli. Try it stir-fried in this easy Stir-fried Broccolette and Cashews, or sauteed in a Broccolette Saute. It's easy to add to any pasta dish, and I especially like this Bowties and Spicy Broccolette. And nothing says summer like a Warm Broccolette Salad on a mid-summer night's eve. For something a little bit out of the ordinary, check out this interesting Hunanese Smoky Bacon with Bean Curd and Broccolette.

Acorn squash in summer, you ask? Why of course! Fire up your barbecue and try your hand at Grilled Acorn Squash, you may never want to eat it any other way. This Grilled Acorn Squash with Balsamic Drizzle is similar, and also looks fantastic. And I have a feeling this BBQ Acorn Squash with a Brown Sugar Glaze will not disappoint. Like to stick to the more traditional method of baking acorn squash? Check out this very helpful video for Maple Glazed Baked Acorn Squash for step-by-step instructions and a fabulous recipe.

Fresh lettuce simply can't be beat this time of year. We love all types of lettuce, especially romaine. On hot summer nights I often serve a light grilled meat with just a salad, or even a large salad as a meal. I put together a nice list of some favourite romaine-based summer salads for you. If you have a special one you'd like to add, be sure to leave us a comment!
