Recipe of the Week

Lazy Localvore Radish Zucchini Latkes

Using zucchini as the base in this variation of the typical potato pancake gives a really fresh feel, and it is much simpler, not to mention timely, to make with our locally sourced pre-shredded zucchini!

INGREDIENTS

5 lbs VT Frozen Shredded Zucchini
2 bunches Farm Fresh Radishes
4 Farm Fresh Eggs
2 Tbs Flour
Salt
Black Pepper
Other Seasonings as desired
Olive Oil for Frying

METHOD

1. Allow Zucchini to thoroughly thaw.
2. Finely grate radish roots.
3. Put veggies in a bowl and salt well. Mix and let sit for one to four hours.
4. One handful at a time squeeze the veggies to discard the liquid, you may have to do this twice. If you find the vegetables are still very salty, rinse them with fresh water and squeeze again.
5. Add eggs, flour, and any seasoning you are using and mix well.
6. Heat a fair amount of oil to medium-high on a heavy pan. Use a spoon to drop balls of the mix about 1 ½” wide in the hot oil & smoosh down with a spatula. Allow to brown on one side before turning, adding more oil only as needed. Be careful not to burn but remember that these vegetables need to be cooked more than potatoes so that they do not taste raw.

Serve hot with applesauce or sour cream. Yum!

Good Morning!

Be sure to get some Red Leafy Lettuce from Mimi over at Wellspring Farm this week. Other not to miss products include Baby Rainbow Chard and Fresh Curly Parsley from Gaylord Farm, as well as hydroponic Basil from Santa Davida Farm.

It’s come to our attention over here at Food Works that while many people are truly interested in eating fresh for their health, many lack the skills, time, or initiative to cook nutritious meals for themselves or their families. Many are more apt to reach for the “instant meal’ and pop it in the microwave. Obviously the foods they end up reaching for, those pre-packaged meals with less prep time, are usually much less healthy than, say, a local, organic alternative. But sometimes there just isn’t time. Some days you just don’t have the energy to do all that prep-work for dinner and that is completely fine. But why not have some Vermont grown frozen veggies lying around for days like this? Our VT Frozen Shredded Zucchini, Corn on the Cob, and Squash Medley are perfect for lazy days and novice cookers. Other almost ready to serve products include our three different varieties of veggie burgers, VT Gold Goldburgers, VT Bean Crafters OKARA Burgers, and VT Bean Crafters Black Bean Burgers, as well as ready-to-eat Rhapsody Teriyaki Tempeh and BBQ Tempeh.

We also are still offering a large variety of greens, so scoop them up! You can’t have too much!

The market is always open! We will be accepting orders for June 19th until Monday morning at 8am, after which the market will remain open but orders will default to the next week.

With Love and Kindness and Food Justice for All,

Farm to Table Staff
