  • Many recipes will call for just the white portion of a spring onion but we suggest finely chopping the green part to make a delightful garnish too. Our favorite prep tip for the spring onion? Roast the entire vegetable in the oven with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper. #paveggies #springonion #pennsylvania #vegetables #homegrownhappiness #produce #simplydelicious #onions #eatwiththeseasons #spring #veggies #augustispaproducemonth
  • We’ve already got beans on the mind. Which dish would you pick: bean salad with a homemade vinaigrette or sautéed beans with an aioli sauce? #paveggies #beans #homegrownhappiness #pennsylvania #vegetables
  • Follow along for the stages of a PA tomato with @millerplantfarm #repost @millerplantfarm

  • We love making a brothy, veggieful soup this time of year when there’s still a crisp bite in the air that leaves a shiver in your bones while the sun’s still on your face. This edition features barley, broth preserved from a chicken roast, ramps, cilantro, and last season carrots that were preserved the easy peasy way, in the freezer! We’ll add a squeeze of lime when plating (or bowling for that matter 😁) and call it a day! #paveggies #soup #broth #comfortfood #homegrownhappiness #cilantro #herbs #greens #ramps #carrots #preserve #buyfreshbuylocal #pennsylvania #vegetables #seasonal #farmtotable
  • Pesto. It’s not just for dinner. Grab a seasonal green of your choice (seriously, it doesn’t have to be basil - see link in bio) and whip up a batch of pesto as a delicious and healthy breakfast spread. It’s a great way to use seasonal greens and get a dose of healthy ingredients first thing in the morning. #paveggies #pesto #healthy #local #breakfast #toast #simple #homegrownhappiness #buyfreshbuylocalpa #pennsylvania #vegetables #eatwiththeseasons
  • Anyone finding ramps at their local PA farmers markets or farm stands? Not sure what to do with them? We stumbled upon some great tips. Thanks @bullychef #paveggies #ramps・・・
Ramp Vinaigrette - Say what?  As a member of the allium family, ramps can be treated just like any other onion in the process of making a quick vinaigrette.  Remove root.  Peel outer layer at base - sometimes a little deteriorated.  Julienne in coins or mince the root end of the ramp.  Macerate in your favorite acid with salt and pepper.  Less acid is better than too much at this point as you can always adjust up.  Julienne or chop the tops and add with enough flavor neutral oil to make a balanced vinaigrette.  Add some chopped olives for some salt and fat.  Spoon over fish or chicken (any protein for that matter). Alternately use it to dress a salad or punch up anything that needs a boost! Walleye?  Hello. #ramps #walleye
  • Is 2019 the year of fennel? It may be when you find out how simple it is to prepare. Braising is one of our favorite methods, finishing in the oven with a sprinkle of Parmesan. You can also chop it up and enjoy it raw in a salad. Look for it from your local farmers and enjoy the homegrown happiness. #paveggies #fennel #pennsylvania #vegetable #farmers #braising #braised #homegrown #health #happiness
  • Seasonal vegetables have more nutrients than their counterparts making them an excellent choice for your health. Eating seasonally is a guaranteed way to support your local farmers too.
