Though September has brought with it cooler temperatures, falling leaves and other signs that fall is indeed just around the corner, here at Bella Luna and the other nearby farms we are continuing to enjoy a bounty of late-summer crops—from bicolor corn and eggplants to juicy melons. Thus, this week’s box combines the best of both seasons as it stars a robust tomato and roasted red pepper soup as well as Gruyère cheese bread, farm-fresh eggs and produce like sprouting broccoli and colorful grilling peppers.
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
Roasted Ratatouille Toasts
A delightful spin on the classic stew, this time slathered on toasted bread as a starter!
Radish & Arugula Salad
Top this crisp combination with a garlic-lemon dressing and freshly-grated Romano cheese.
Tomato Salad with Corn & Roasted Onions
Roasted sweet onion adds a wonderful depth of flavor to this refreshing salad.
Sprouting Broccoli Salad
This room temperature salad from The Barefoot Contessa has just the right amount of crunch!
Melon with Fresh Mint & Lime Syrup
Try this sweet-tart syrup with your favorite summer melon.
These addictive peppers are wonderful incorporated into a grilled cheese sandwich to serve alongside this week’s soup.
