Holly & Heather’s Helpful Hint: The Winter Farm Share

by helpinghandstwins

While Heather’s farm share ended last fall, Holly’s continues year round. The organization, Field Goods, offers a variety of shares you can purchase and the pick up site couldn’t be easier…the workplace lobby!

All summer we wondered what the winter share would bring. Some things we guessed – frozen fruits and vegetables – some things we didn’t – bottled extra virgin olive oil, organic corn tortillas, shiitake mushrooms (pictured below), beans. Here’s a recipe “straight from the farm”:

Shiitake Mushroom and Pork Stir Fry

Ingredients: *2 tbsp olive oil, *1/2 cup of chopped shiitake mushrooms, *pressed garlic, one crown of broccoli, 3 tbsp hoisin sauce, 1/2 cup chicken stock, 1 cup cooked pasta or risotto, diced, cooked pork loin
*starred ingredients were from the farm share

Heat the oil in a large skillet or saute pan. Add garlic, mushrooms, and broccoli to saute. Add about one tbsp of the hoisin sauce. Stir in the pasta, stock and pork to the pan (these were already in the fridge – yay for leftovers!). Combine all well with the remaining hoisin sauce. Cover and continue to heat on low for about 10 minutes.
