THE PERFECT BRUNCH BOX

summerland-7228

this summer has been a hot one which generally means not much cooking and lots of eating out because it’s just too hot to even think about turning on the oven. now that the temperatures are dropping, it’s time to add a few more fruits and veggies to the table and embrace all that fall produce has to offer.

there’s a small company in LA called summerland that will deliver in-season organic produce to your home. they dropped some off last week for us to enjoy in the studio. included was their brunch box which supplied us with all of the ingredients we needed to assemble the perfect brunch. it was amazing. it’d be the perfect thing to send to a new mom or as a housewarming gift to someone whose refrigerator is most definitely empty after a big move. and, if  you don’t live in LA and want to make your own brunch box – here’s what they included and it pretty much covered all of the bases:

• one bottle of cold brew coffee
• 2 avocados
• 1 loaf bread
• 1 dozen eggs
• cherry tomatos
• berries
• garlic
• spinach
• mushrooms
• oranges to make fresh OJ
• scallions and herbs

we used our ingredients to make a soft veggie egg scramble. my aunt taught me how to make scrambled eggs when i was 10 and her tip has stuck with me forever. she told me to cook the scrambled eggs on the very lowest heat possible and to continually scrape the bottom of the pan to keep the eggs from over cooking. it actually works really well but is definitely a saturday morning only routine for when time allows.

we also made a simple roast veggie recipe which was delicious, especially served with arugula that we drizzled with olive oil and lemon. here’s how to make it at home.

ingredients / rosemary vegetables

• half of a butternut squash
• 4 Japanese sweet potatoes
• 4 sprigs of rosemary
• 1 onion
• one head of cauliflower
• 1 bunch of asparagus

how to make it:

• preheat your oven to 425 degrees
• roughly chop the vegetables
• toss all of the vegetables together on a baking sheet and generously drizzle with olive oil ands sea salt. mix by hand until all of the veggies are evenly coated.
•  roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the veggies are tender. i like to slightly overcook them so that they have a charred outer layer.
