Several weeks ago I was checking out at the grocery store when the man behind me was inspecting the goods in my cart and says, “Wow, you eat really healthy; you’ve got a lot of produce there.” The man went on to tell me he owned a farm, which to my surprise was located within 5 miles of my house. We’ve lived in this house for 4 years, and I never even knew there was a farm close to us that sold fresh produce. I was a little mind-blown. Since that meeting at the grocery store, my family frequents the farm every week to buy fresh Alaska produce. It’s been so wonderful, and the quality (and price) of the produce is amazing!
One of my favorite veggies to buy from our local farmer is cauliflower; I love it, especially when it’s paired with copious amounts of garlic. Like in this recipe:
It is because of this ongoing love affair that I also created Mashed Cauliflower with Roasted Garlic & Chives. I eat this creamy side dish for breakfast, lunch and dinner (and all times in between). I’m that obsessed, and I always double the recipe. Mashed cauliflower on its own is creamy, but when you combine it with ingredients like ghee and roasted garlic, you end up with a richness and a buttery texture that melts in your mouth. Plain and simple, try this recipe and you’ll be just as addicted as I am.
Do you purchase fresh grown produce where you live? What veggies are your farm favorites?
All my love,
