SOLEDAD, CA - Looking to take produce to another level? So is Josie's Organics. The company is appealing to taste buds across the industry this summer with an expanded recipe collection. New in the mix are five dishes that help moms with their weekly family meal plan through easy, go-to meals, and also informs the consumer on how to use stalks, roots, and leaves. 

Created for busy, modern families, these recipes use ingredients easily found at home or in local supermarkets. As an added plus, they also require only basic kitchen tools for preparation and include easy-to-follow instructions, according to a press release.

The new creations showcase fennel, leeks, and dandelion greens, which were added to the Josie’s Organics whole vegetable product line earlier this year, as well as celery, kale, collards, and cauliflower.

“We know moms are constantly searching for new recipes to make weeknight meals and family suppers fresh, exciting, and delicious,” said Josie’s Organics Recipe Developer, Chadwick Boyd. “We recognize that recipes also have to be flexible to work with constantly changing schedules and different dietary needs.”

Straight from Braga, the recipes featured are: 

Quick Celery-Fennel Stir Fry with Cashews

An Asian-inspired quick dish that cooks in less than 10 minutes, helping to get dinner on the table fast. The warm, crunchy celery and caramelized fennel are enhanced simply with honey and rice wine vinegar – a sweet and sour combo that adults and kids both love. For the recipe, click here.

Shredded Kale Salad with Ginger and Roasted Orange

A simple, make-ahead salad made extra special by slicing kale very thinly with a sharp knife and roasting fresh oranges. Sesame seeds toasted lightly combined with gluten-free tamari give it a nutty, Asian flair. It doubles for an easy supper and an on-the-go lunch the next day. For the recipe, click here.

Dandelion Greens Stuffed Pork Roast with Apple and Dandelion “Pistou” Sauce

Dandelion greens are popping up in produce departments all over the country. This dish uses them two ways – as a flavorful stuffing for pork and a quick, garlicky spoon sauce. It’s ideal for a homey, weekend family supper and a super fast, weeknight pasta dinner. For the recipe, click here.

Cauliflower Drop Biscuits with Cheddar, Bacon, and Leeks

These biscuits are foolproof for all levels of cooks, and while cauliflower is the star, biscuit lovers of all ages call them blue ribbon winners. Flecks of fresh leeks mixed with crispy bits of bacon and sharp cheddar cheese make them complete comfort food. They’re also freezer-friendly, and easy to carry to picnics, or take to school or church functions. For the recipe, click here.

Asian-glazed Collards with Peanuts

A tasty, quick-fired fusion of Vietnamese dipping sauce with Southern-rooted collards and peanuts. This side dish cooks in under 8 minutes. All that is required is a tilt of the pan, a large spoon and the flip of a wrist. This can be served as a big, family-style bowl or alongside grilled chicken thighs, pork chops, or shrimp.

With all the elements of a busy parent in mind, these recipes have been created to be:

  • Made-ahead or prepped in advance
  • Scaled up for larger family gatherings
  • Used for multiple meals, like for dinner and then lunch the next day
  • Cooked for dinner and re-purposed for a new meal the next night
  • Adjusted to accommodate allergies or special diets, like vegetarian, gluten-free, or Paleo

The recipes also include shareable photos, quick tips, substitutions and “dress it up” ideas for entertaining, with more recipes found at Josie's Orgaincs.
