Winter Comforts Recipes

As last week’s frosty temps and snow sightings have been followed by a string of gray and drippy days, now is the time to cozy up to this week’s lineup of warm-and-wonderful offerings—rich, flavorful risotto accented with earthy mushroom duxelles and baby Shiitake mushrooms, plus Gruyère cheese bread, farm-fresh eggs and a vibrant produce selection that includes micro pea shoots, rainbow beets and pink Cipollini onions. Also complemented by crème fraîche and Fontina, plus an appealing blue cheese dressing, this lovely winter’s meal begs to be eaten fireside, tucked in your favorite chair, with a glass of wine in hand.

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:

Duxelles & Baby Shiitake Mushroom Risotto
Mixed with our own duxelles and then topped with sautéed mushrooms, this creamy and delicious risotto is a favorite here at the farm.

Italian Fontina ‘Fonduta’
Serve this classic Italian-style fondue with crudité and warm crostini, or with a poached fresh-farm egg on top!

Mushroom, Leek & Fontina Frittata
Perhaps best served at room temperature, this luscious frittata from Bon Appetit is a fantastic do-ahead entrée.

Micro Greens & Pea Shoots Salad with Hazelnuts
This stellar salad from Food & Wine is beautifully balanced with peppery micro greens and sweet micro pea shoots.

Warm Roasted Beets with Curry Spices
This heavenly side dish is fragrant with warm spices; a must-try for a chilly winter’s night.

Roasted Pink Cipollini Onions
These tender little onions are fabulous mixed into scrambled eggs.

Summer All-Stars Recipes

Tomatoes! Blueberries! Zucchini! These late summer staples are arriving in abundance here in August and this week’s box celebrates them in all their sun-ripened glory, as well as other favorites such as Chioggia radicchio, fennel and red and yellow plums from the orchards here at Bella Luna. Also joining these summer all-stars: Fresh, handcrafted bucatini pasta from Bellingham Pasta Co. and multigrain bread, plus fragrant herbs and our signature chicken stock. Long live summer!

Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:

Fresh Bucatini Pasta with Heirloom Tomatoes & Basil
Using top-notch olive oil and an authentic Grana-style cheese are key to this dish’s success.

Wild Rice Salad with Blueberries, Corn & Almonds
This Bon Appetit recipe shines the spotlight on summer blueberries and fresh corn!

Grilled Radicchio Salad
A light balsamic dressing perfectly compliments nutty grilled radicchio in this unique salad.

Grilled Lemon-Garlic Zucchini
Brushed with a herb-kissed butter mixture, these zucchini slices pair well with grilled chicken, fish or steak.
