Zucchini Anyone? It seems in the flurry of summer activities sometimes picking zucchini can get overlooked. When you walk into the garden to find a huge zucchini, the most common reaction is “let’s make zucchini bread.” After a month of zucchini bread though, the idea gets a little worn out. Enter the classic Italian recipe of stuffed zucchini. Both tasty and healthy, this recipe allows you to turn your boring zucchini into a beautiful dinner centerpiece. With lean ground chicken or turkey and all the fresh vegetables and herbs, this recipe has what it takes to be a hit at home.
Corn is King! Right now the biggest crop everyone talks about in Minnesota is the sweet corn. Where can we get it? Is it fresh? Is it local? Organic? These are the questions we hear every day in the produce department. The sweet corn at Valley Natural Foods right now is almost exclusively from Gardens of Eagan. This farm has a huge history regarding sweet corn. The farm itself has been in organic operation for over 30 years and has been growing sweet corn almost as long. Just this week the farm has finished its sweet corn trials which they do every year, testing out dozens of new varieties of sweet corn to find that perfect ear. The combination of sweet corn grown at Gardens of Eagan and the “special” sauce makes this new recipe an instant classic in our book.
