Rich with comforting flavors, yet bright with spring ingredients, this week’s risotto-themed box is equally fit for a grand feast, or an intimate meal for two. Have fun experimenting in the kitchen with all the provisions for a lovely risotto crafted with our signature chicken stock and topped with imported Parmesan Reggiano and gorgeous vegetables like first-of-the-season asparagus, baby leeks, and carrots. Inside you’ll also find: Gruyère cheese bread, Sauk Farm’s apple cider, locally-crafted pickles, farm-fresh eggs, and beautiful spring greens like Bibb lettuces, arugula and a fresh salad mix. Enjoy!
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
This bright risotto showcases beautiful spring vegetables and hearty Arborio rice—just remember to keep stirring!
Sautéed Spring Vegetables
Lightly sautéed in butter and kissed with lemon juice, these crisp spring vegetables are wonderful served atop this week’s risotto.
Farro, Arugula & Apple Salad
Bright with radishes, apple and asparagus, this salad is a real stunner.
This flavor-packed vinaigrette is fantastic with both grains and greens.
This mellow confit makes an amazing topping for pizza, pasta and crostini; or try a little dollop atop your risotto!
