Happy Valentine’s Day or Galentine’s Day or just another February #SaladSunday. Today — and every day — we give you our hearts. Figuratively, because we appreciate every last one of you who supports organic farming and all that means for our shared future. And also literally, as we harvest and send you our sweet and crisp romaine hearts — one of our most popular organic veggies – pretty much every day.
There are so many reasons to love organic…
- Because it’s healthier for you and those you love
- Because you love protecting the birds and the bees and the rest of the ecosystem
- Because you love the way organic food tastes better
- Because you love how important soil is to life and love how organic builds healthy soils
- Because you love that organic farming helps mitigate climate change by capturing and storing carbon
- Because you love supporting farmers who have dedicated themselves to the art and science of organic farming
- Maybe even because you love that we offer coupons
We don’t care why you choose organic…we just love you because you do. Even if it’s only from time to time.
We have always thought of organic as food to live by. Which means it’s really also food to love by. So if you’re looking to treat your Valentine to a special meal, we’ve got some recipe ideas for you.
Wake your Valentine up with one of our most popular recipes. Chef Pam McKinstry, once Earthbound Farm’s culinary consultant, created these muffins in 1978 for her eponymous restaurant on Nantucket Island. The recipe was first published in Gourmet Magazine in 1981, and in 1991 it was chosen as one of the magazine’s 25 favorite recipes from the past 50 years.
Be still our hearts! The sweetness of beets and the silkiness of cooked cauliflower make this extraordinary soup a palate pleaser. Dotting the soup with easy-to-make creme fraiche hearts will bring at least a little smile to their lips.
Ok, so we don’t have a photo of this amazing dessert, but it’s so perfect for Valentine’s Day…and it’s from our friend Suzanne Goin, award-winning chef of the acclaimed Lucques restaurant in Los Angeles. She created this elegant, updated version of strawberry shortcake to celebrate the start of strawberry season at our Farm Stand.
Want to #FakeOutTakeOut? Uncomplicated and satisfying is what we want and this recipe by Upbeet Anisha delivers the goods. Zesty sweet and sour sauce with noodles and snap peas makes a meal that comes together quickly and is bound to please whoever comes to the table.
