Farm to Table: Sauteed Garlic Scapes with Potatoes and Sweet Peppers

Looking for a clean recipe to enjoy this weekend?  You can thank market shopper, Shannon Radigan, for this one!  This recipe features Garlic Scapes, which are a spring treat that most people haven’t tried.  Garlic scapes are the stalks of the garlic plant.  Leaving the stalks on the plant often takes energy away from the garlic bulb’s formation, so they are cut off and can be used for culinary purposes.  Find them at Frostville, and try them in pesto, salads, stir fries, and much more! Shannon’s Sauteed Garlic Scapes with Potatoes and Sweet Peppers Ingredients 3tbsp olive oil 2-3 thinly sliced potatoes chopped garlic scapes and sweet peppers salt to taste rosemary if youre feeling adventurous!

Kale Chips

We all know by now that kale is an ultimate superfood!  It’s coming back into season as we approach Spring, so it’s a great time to think about the many ways to use it.  One of our favorite ways is Kale Chips!  It’s super easy to make, takes little time, and is so delicious!  A recipe that gets a three year-old wanting more kale is definitely winner!      Ingredients:      1 large bunch of kale (organic is best)      1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil      1 teaspoon of salt (sea salt is fabulous, if you have it!) Preparation: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Rinse the kale under cold water to remove any debris. Remove the inner stalks of the kale by slicing down the either side of the stalk, preserving the leaves.  Cut the kale into bite size pieces, keeping in mind that they will shrink as they bake.  If kale is still wet, allowing it to dry or drying it with a towel helps to ensure crispiness of your chips.  Toss the kale with the olive oil and spread on a baking sheet.  Sprinkle generously with salt.  Bake for 10-15 minutes until kale is crisp. Why not get crazy and experiment with your favorite seasonings?!  Try some garlic salt, Cajun spices, cayenne pepper, or simply some lemon! Enjoy! See you at the market!  ...
