Just in time for St. Paddy’s Day and the arrival of spring on Monday, this week’s box bursts to life with beautiful spring ‘greenery’—from green cabbage and leeks to Brussels sprouts and Lacinato kale, plus garden-fresh herbs and peppery arugula greens. Complementing this beautiful bounty are all the ingredients for a feast inspired by the Emerald Isle: Imported beer, our housemade Irish carrot soup and soda bread kissed with flavorful raisins and caraway seed.
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
