Smith Brothers Farms Summer Harvest Produce Box

    • Blueberries – Hoffman Farms
    • Italian prunesEW Brandt & Sons
      Also known as Europen Plums, these small, egg-shaped black plums are about the size of a large berry. As a freestone pit fruit, the pits easily pop out! Their smooth, thin skin carries the cloudy look of a blueberry. Their yellow flesh is denser and less juicy, which makes this type of plum perfect for drying into prunes, and also excellent for baking and preserving. Only available for about one month in late summer, early fall.
    • Organic Bartlett pearsRainier Fruit Company
      Bartlett pears have light green skin that turns yellow when ripe. They're juicy, sweet, and extremely aromatic. Perfect for eating fresh, canning, or cooking with!
    • Grape tomatoes – Imperial's Garden
    • Organic mini watermelonInaba Produce Farms
      Sweet, crisp, and very juicy!
    • Collard greens – Cal Farms
      These large leafy greens are a member of the cruciferous family, which includes kale and cabbage. Packed with loads of nutritional goodness, collards are best when braised, steamed, or sauteed. You can also use them as a wrap. Check out the recipe below!
    • Organic rainbow/red chard – Dharma Ridge Farms
      Dark leafy greens with brightly colored stems. Taste-wise, chard is similar to spinach. It's also just as versatile! Try steaming or sauteeing, adding to soups and stews, or frittatas and quiche.

Drain marinade and place tofu onto a baking sheet. Bake at 375F for 20 to 25 minutes until tofu is browned.

Trim woody stems of collard leaves. Using two leaves at a time, slightly overlap and lay flat to form a rectangular shape. Place 2 pieces of tofu, 10 to 12 pieces of cucumber, and 3 to 4 tablespoons of kimchi inside each wrap. Fold sides toward the center and roll the leaves like you would a burrito. Continue until you have made three wraps. Cut in half and serve immediately.
