INGREDIENTS

3 medium carrots, peeled and quartered lenthwise
2 large tomatoes, quartered
1 large onion, cut into 8 wedges or 4 or 5 slices
1/2 small butternut squash, peeled, seeded, cut lengthwise into 1/2 inch thick wedges
6 garlic cloves
1 Tbsp olive oil
6 cups or more of vegetable broth*
4 cups of finely chopped kale
3 large fresh thyme sprigs
1 bay leaf
1 15 oz can of Great Northern white beans, drained
If cooking gluten-free, use gluten-free broth.

METHOD

1 Preheat oven to 400°F (reduce heat by 25°F if using convection oven). Brush rimmed baking sheet with a thin coat of olive oil. Arrange carrots, squash, tomatoes, onion, and garlic on sheet. Drizzle with more olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Roast vegetables until they are brown and tender, stirring occassionally, about 45 minutes.

2 Cut squash and carrots into 1/2 inch pieces; set aside. Peel garlic cloves; place in food processor. Add tomatoes and onion; puree until almost smooth. Pour 1/2 cup broth onto the baking sheet; scrape up any browned bits. Transfer broth and vegetable puree to large pot. Add 5 1/2 cups broth, kale, thyme and bay leaf to pot. Bring to boil. Reduce heat. Simmer uncovered until kale is tender, about 30 minutes.

3 Add carrots, beans, and squash to soup. Simmer 8 minutes to blend flavors, adding more broth to thin soup if necessary. Season with salt and pepper. Discard thyme sprigs and bay leaf.

Can be made a day ahead. Serves six.

WE HAVE FRESH LOCAL KALE!!!

Order for Delivery on March 20, 2012


Good Afternoon Farm-to-Table Participants,

First and Foremost, We have 24 bunches of fresh local Kale from the Two Rivers Center Farm Greenhouse!! Get em quickly, they will go fast :-)

Secondly, I am the contact point for all Farm-to-Table. Food Works would like to thank Brian Van Hoy for all of his service and good work done for Farm-to-Table and the organization as a whole. From now on, all questions, comments, concerns, order inquiries and the like will be directed to Daniel Stein. You can reach me @ 595.1325 or dan@tworiverscenter.org

Also, I will be contacting everyone soon to set up a 1 on 1 appointment to conduct a short assessment survey. This will help us to understand some of our strengths and weaknesses, obstacles and opportunities and more! I am flexible in my schedule and hope to complete these assessments for our annual report in late summer.

This week we have our final green cabbage, so please buy that out. Also, we request a $50 minimum order for deliveries. This may be a challenge for some, and hopefully we can work something out.

Additionally, we our out of Wheat Berries for the rest of the winter but we still have lots of black beans.

And, if you buy yellow onions in bulk, there will be a price break!

And Finally, the most important thing to add. We LOVE having you as customers. Keep buying this fresh local food from us. This next growing season is going to be an amazing one!

In gratitude

Daniel Stein

A localized take on an age-old recipe. Since chickpeas don’t grow well in our neck of the woods, but hummus is a food that was so dear to me, I took some time to develop a surrogate bean spread that lends the same savoriness and texture to all the cuisines hummus is at home in.
