Nona’s Chicken Pad Thai

(Serves 2)
Ingredients:
13 oz Nona Lim Pad Thai Stir Fry Kit (1 box)
6 oz chicken (white or dark meat), thinly sliced, seasoned with salt and pepper
4 oz bean sprouts
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, minced

Optional garnish: Chopped green onions, crushed roasted peanuts, lime wedges

*Equipment: A large nonstick skillet, wok or cast iron skillet required for this recipe

Instructions:
Cut a small vent in noodle pouches and microwave until they are warm (30-60 seconds). Leave noodles in pouch.

For chicken, heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a skillet or wok over medium heat. Add garlic and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add chicken and stir-fry 3 to 5 minutes until cooked.

To prepare vegetables, add bean sprouts and stir-fry for 1 minute.

Add noodles and sauce to skillet or wok and toss everything for 1 minute, being careful to handle the noodles gently. If possible, toss ingredients using a wrist-flick motion to minimize handling the noodles with a utensil.

Once noodles and sauce are well incorporated, plate your Pad Thai, garnish with green onions, peanuts, and lime wedges. Enjoy!

Pro tip: when stir frying your Pad Thai noodles, be sure that the noodles are not cold before they hit the pan. Nona recommends microwaving the noodles in their packaging first, so that they separate and cook easily without breaking. Rice noodles should be handled gently even though stir frying traditionally requires fast cooking and high heat. If you're able to toss your ingredients without the use of utensils, go for it! If not, tongs or a wooden spoon work as well. For more tips, check out this page that outlines some of Nona's Do's and Don'ts for successful stir fry.

Three Trees Vegan Mac and Cheese

Three Trees Mac and Cheese

Whether you are vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free or none of the above — you won't want to miss out on this decadent Vegan Mac and Cheese recipe from Three Trees. It is delicious as is, but if you're feeling adventurous, there is room to play around with additional ingredients like winter squash, fresh herbs, and spices. 

The key ingredient you won't want to leave out is Three Trees Organic Unsweetened Almond Milk. Three trees is proud to be on the 100% organic clean ingredients list. They use only organic almonds and grind them with water, so there is no waste, more fiber, and it's naturally creamy.

Vegan Mac and Cheese 

(Serves 4)

Ingredients:
8 oz cooked gluten-free noodles
1/4 cup vegan butter
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cups Three Trees Original Almond Milk
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/2-1 teaspoon salt (more or less depending on preference)
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Tapioca slurry (1/2 tablespoon tapioca starch mixed with 1 tablespoon water)
1/4 cup gluten-free Italian breadcrumbs
 

Directions:
First, mince the garlic and preheat the oven to 400F. Then, cook the noodles.

While the noodles are cooking, add the vegan butter to a pan to melt.

Once melted, add in the minced garlic and saute in the vegan butter for 3-4 minutes until
fragrant.

Next, add the Three Trees Original Almond Milk to the pan, stirring as you add it.

Then, add in the nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, paprika, and Dijon mustard. Stir to mix.

Once mixed, add in the tapioca slurry and mix the sauce together for 1-2 minutes until
thickened. Adding the tapioca slurry will give the vegan cheese a stretchy consistency.

Then, add the cooked gluten-free noodles to the pan and stir together until coated in the
vegan cheese sauce.

Remove the noodles from the heat and add to an 8* 8-inch pan. Then, top with the
gluten-free Italian breadcrumbs.

Add to the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes until the breadcrumbs are lightly toasted.
Then, remove and enjoy!

Summer Baking

Summer Baking

It may be hot out, but summer just wouldn't be summer without fresh peach cobblers, juicy strawberry desserts and zucchini bread! So, preheat the oven early in the morning, and get ready to create one of these tantalizing summer-inspired recipes with the fresh produce from your farm box. Check out our collection of baking ingredients you can add to your deliveries too!

Summer Baking

Apricot Turnovers

This light and airy dessert is filled with sweet-tart, golden apricots and has a delicate crispy crunch. 

For even more bright and summery apricot recipes, check out our Mini Apricot Cakes, Apricot Frangipane Tart and Apricot Lattice Pie recipes too. 

Summer Baking

Blueberry Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

These delicious bars are the perfect combination of sweet and spice, and that added bonus is that they are healthy and filling. They are great for breakfast or a snack on the go.

Find even more blueberry bliss from our Peach & Blueberry Galette, Apricot and Blueberry Crumble, or Blueberry Banana Bread recipes.

Summer Baking

Rustic Strawberry Cake

This rustic cake is dense, buttery and delicious! We think you'll enjoy the added nutty flavor from the toasted almonds.

Summer Baking

Peach Cobbler Coffee Cake

Okay, so even though this is basically a dessert in disguise, it is delicious with coffee (though it would also be good served as a dessert, too). 

Looking for a more traditional cobbler recipe?  We highly recommend Willa's Peach Cobbler — a tried-and-true family recipe that's been passed down three generations, and is an ode to summer peaches.

Summer Baking

Summer Strawberry Pizza

This dessert pizza has a crunchy cookie base with a cheesy custard inside and topped with sweet fresh strawberries on top. 

Summer Baking

Zucchini Spice Bread

We love putting zucchini in bread not only because it creates the perfect texture, but also because it's a great way to sneak zucchini into a sweet treat. 

If you love zucchini bread, we bet you'll love our Honey Glazed Corn Bread too. It's sweet and salty, and a must-have at your next barbecue.  

Summer Baking

Zucchini and Sweet Corn Soufflé

A savory soufflé you say? Yes! It's fluffy, cheesy and filled with farm-fresh zucchini and corn. 

If savory summer baking is more to your liking, we think you'll have fun with our Savory Heirloom Tomato Galettes, Zucchini Quiche with Fresh Herbs, or Leek and Chanterelle Flatbread.    

Summer Baking

Margherita Pizza

Because the Margherita pizza only has a few ingredients, the key is to use the freshest available to highlight the crisp, clean flavors. Though can you really go wrong with tomatoes, cheese and basil?
