I hope I am not the only person who gets excited when Basket Day rolls around. I love getting so much quality produce at bargain prices ($15 is a steal for all this produce!). Trying to exercise a little restraint this time, I contributed for a Conventional Basket, as well as the Organic Olive Oil. The timing on the olive oil was perfect as I ran out just a week ago. If you are looking for recipes and tips for your 12-5-15 Bountiful Baskets, I’ve got you covered. The Peruvian Vegetable Soup is on my must-try list.
You’ve got your Bountiful Basket home, cleaned all your goodies and now comes the fun part – deciding what to make with all the awesome produce. If you didn’t get a basket, you can still use these recipes with produce you purchased at the farmer’s market or grocery store – it’s all in season now, readily available and prices out very well.
