Editor’s pick: Farm 2 Fork kits
If you’re like me, you scour your farmer’s market with grand ideas of magazine-worthy dishes you’ll cook up with all the healthy produce you’re about to buy.
Except then you get home and resort to your usual go-to meals.
Enter Farm2Fork kids, now available at farmers markets in the Boston area, plus Healthy Habits Kitchen in Wellesley (they also ship across New England). These packaged products are like a classed-up, healthier Hamburger Helper — they contain the ingredients you need to make a chef-approved dinner, except produce (which you add). The five varieties are sure to bowl over your fellow diners: chocolate black bean wheatberry chili; curried lentil soup; zucchini oatmeal bread; faro, kale, cranberry and almond salad and fruity nutty crumble.
Now you’ll finally know what to do with all that rutabaga while supporting your local community — how win-win is that?
