This week’s recipe and specials from Home Farm Herbery


Quinoa Salad with Pickled Radishes and Feta



1 cup red wine vinegar

1 1/2 tablespoons sugar

4 medium radishes, very thinly sliced

1/2 pound thin green beans

1 cup quinoa, rinsed (You can get Quinoa at Home Farm Herbery or go to our website)



1 large English cucumber—halved lengthwise, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch dice

3 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

6 ounces Greek feta cheese, thinly sliced



In a small saucepan, bring the red wine vinegar to a simmer with the sugar. Remove from the heat and add the radish slices. Let stand until cool, about 1 hour.

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan of salted boiling water, blanch the green beans until they are crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and rinse the beans under cold water until cool. Pat the beans dry and cut them into 1 1/2-inch lengths.

In a medium saucepan, bring 1 3/4 cups of water to a boil. Add the quinoa, cover and simmer over low heat until all of the water has been absorbed, about 12 minutes. Uncover and let stand until cool, about 10 minutes.

In a medium bowl, toss the cucumber with 1/2 tablespoon of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. In a large bowl, toss the quinoa with the parsley, lemon juice and the remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Drain the radishes and add them to the quinoa, along with the beans, cucumber and feta. Toss well and serve.

MAKE AHEAD: The quinoa salad can be refrigerated for up to 3 hours.

Everything you wanted to know about Lemon Grass order some today

Lemon Grass, Dried, Organic

At Home Farm Herbery each year we plant enough Lemon Grass for our favorite customers needs.  Lemon Grass is also known as Lemongrass, Barbed Wire Grass, Silky Heads, Citronella Grass, Camel's Hay or Cochin Grass and our Lemon Grass has a  pleasant, lemony taste and aroma with subtle with ginger undertones

Ingredients: Organic Lemon Grass Dried

Lemon Grass is used to add a citrus-like aroma and fresh ginger-like flavor to marinades for poultry and fish or as a flavoring for soups, stews, salads, and food dressings such as curries or marinades. Unless the Lemon Grass is minced and mixed into the food dish, it is best to add larger strips to the dish and then remove before serving, since it does not break up and disappear when cooking.  You can use it in Thai cuisine, rice, soups, curry, beef, salad, chicken, vegetables and stir fry and it is great when you add it to rice just before cooking.

 Lemongrass is also thought to have numerous health benefits, especially when used in combination with other Thai spices such as garlic, fresh chilies, and coriander. In fact, scientists are now studying Thailand's favorite soup: Tom Yum Kung, which contains all of these herbs and spices, with lemongrass as the key player. Tom Yum is thought to be capable of combating colds, flu, and even some cancers.

This common garden sage has been known and used for culinary and medicinal purposes for centuries. Culinary Sage popular in nearly every European cuisine and is used variously to flavor meats, poultry, soups, puddings, cheeses and vegetables. Its unmistakable peppery flavor makes it popular for use in poultry and pork stuffing, and to flavor and preserve sausage meats.

Sage can be used to flavor and preserve nearly any meat or cheese, and is often used in soups and salads as well.

Taste is not the only part of sage’s purported benefits. The ancient Greeks considered sage to be a valuable healing herb, and used it to treat consumption, ulcers and other digestive problems. It has been used to lower fevers and treat snake bite. Used as a tea, sage can either stop sweating when drunk cold, or produce sweating when taken hot. It has been used to treat headache, and is believed in various cultures to aid memory and thinking.  Medicinally, it has been shown by modern research to prevent blood clots from forming, and has a long tradition of healing and treating digestive ills.

Baked Penne with Roasted Vegetables

Baked Penne with Roasted Vegetables baked penne roasted vegetables

Total Time: 1 hr 5 min Prep 25 min Cook 40 min Yield: 6 servings
Ingredients 2 red peppers, cored and cut into 1-inch wide strips
2 zucchini, quartered lengthwise and cut into 1-inch cubes
2 summer squash, quartered lengthwise and cut into 1-inch cubes
4 cremini mushrooms, halved
1 yellow onion, peeled and sliced into 1-inch strips
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon salt, divided
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1 tablespoon Home Farm Herbery Italian Seasoning
Or Home Farm Herbery Herbes de Provence
1 pound penne pasta 3 cups marinara sauce (store bought or homemade)
1 cup grated Fontana cheese
½ cup grated smoked mozzarella
1 ½ cups frozen peas, thawed
1/4 cup grated Parmesan, plus 1/3 cup for topping
2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces

Directions Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

On a baking sheet, toss the peppers, zucchini, squash, mushrooms, and onions with olive oil, ½ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper, and dried herbs.

Roast until tender, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook for about 6 minutes. Since you will be cooking the pasta a second time in the oven, you want to make sure the inside is still hard.

 Drain in a colander. In a large bowl, toss the drained pasta with the roasted vegetables, marinara sauce, cheeses, peas, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Using a wooden spoon, gently mix, until all the pasta is coated with the sauce and the ingredients are combined.

Pour the pasta into a greased 9 by 13-inch pan.

Top with the remaining 1/3 cup Parmesan and butter pieces. Bake until top is golden and cheese melts, about 25 minutes.
