Texas Blueberries, Peaches & Tomatoes Are Here – Plus Local Arugula and More…

June 14, 2012

The Texas fruit has just started coming in, and it’s unbelievable!  Here’s what we’re planning* for this weekend’s almost 100% local co-op style produce shares

*When working with fresh produce, availability can sometimes change last-minute.  We do our best to let you know what’s coming ahead of time, but sometimes things do change, especially when working with local farmers.  Thanks for your understanding!

Here are some recipes for you…

Texas Blueberries

Local peach from Larken Farms in Waxahachie

What Is Arugula?

Arugula is a wonderfully “spicy” green that can be eaten the same way you would spinach.  Try throwing it in a pan with sautéed onions and mushrooms. Heat a pan on medium low with olive oil and add sliced or chopped onions.  Sprinkle some sea salt and let it cook low and slow for about 20 minutes.  As it starts to soften and become a slightly brown color, add the sliced mushrooms and then arugula.  Use this as a filling for fajitas, topping on a grass-fed beef or bison burger, or atop of a hot bowl of polenta and raw cheese for a veggie bowl like none other.

Our other favorite way to use arugula is to eat it raw.  Make bite-sized lettuce wraps with them.  Wrap the arugula around eggs and chicken sausage in the morning or try grass-fed beef with raw pepper jack.  Delicious!

Here’s one more arugula recipe for ya…
