  1. So much beautiful stuff! Might have to give that super quiche a try 🙂 A great way to incorporate tons of goodness…

    Thanks for the link up!

  2. That is a huge share! I might have trouble using it all. The parsley would make a great pesto and the leeks dehydrate really well if you can’t use them (they’re usually pretty easy to use). I have a bunch of turnips in the fridge that I need to use up this week – maybe mashed into potatoes.

  3. Chucks – It really is a great way to use a ton of stuff, and i love complete, one pan meals!

    Amy – If you click on SuperQuiche, it should pop up in another tab, if not, this is the link. https://uglyfoodtastesbetter.com/2011/07/03/superquiche/

    Tammy – I split the winter share with my neighbors, so that helps a lot! I am working on a recipe for Chinese turnip cakes, but I love them all ways. The last batch I made veggie chips. SO good. And a great way to use a bunch of root vegetables before they go bad. https://uglyfoodtastesbetter.com/2012/04/04/ghost-pepper-rutabaga-and-turnip-chips-salad-with-lemon-tarragon-dressing-grilled-sirloin-steak-oh-yes/
