Rootastes’ Chefs’ Curated Recipes
Salads are the easiest way to eat up your produce, but it’s easy for them to become uninspired. Our Kinda-Close Cobb Salad blends local and sustainably sourced ingredients for a crunchy salad that’s satisfying and will keep you full until dinner. Because you can’t go wrong with a salad that tosses fresh vegetables with hearty proteins!
For an equally protein packed dinner, turn to chicken. Garlic is a favorite marinade, and becomes even more luscious with mushrooms. Our chefs’ Mushroom Garlic Chicken with Roasted Zucchini recipe is savory yet light. And if you’re in the mood, it’s a delightful complement to pasta.
Want to mix it up and swap out the zucchini? Try our New England Maple-Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Root Vegetables Medley. It’s the most delicious way to eat your vegetables! And maple syrup is a must here in New England, right?
Whether you’re gluten free or looking for a healthier alternative to pasta, it can be challenging to find one that delivers. The key is flavor. This Garlic Parmesan Zucchini Noodles Pasta rises to the occasion with its nutty, mellowly pungent flavors. We also love the subtle crunch of cooked “zoodles”!
Whether you love vegetables as a main or a side, there are many flavor combinations to keep things interesting. Would you ever think to pair carrots with avocado and mint? Bon Appétit did and it come out superbly in this recipe.
If you decide to give any of these recipes a try, let us know what you think. We’d also love to see how you’re getting crafty in the kitchen with your basket, so be sure to share your favorite recipes below.
