Preparing Raw Recipes in the Garden

Introduction

Raw recipes are a happy medium between nibbling on produce directly from the garden and getting out a heat source and pots and pans. Once you develop a basic repertoire of no-cook garden recipes, it will become second nature to work in tasting opportunities to your lessons on a regular basis.

Best Practices

  • Spring roll wrapper require only soaking in cold water and are great for wrapping raw veggies with sauce
  • Crinkle-cut veggies to make raw "fries"
