The name of this iconic Tuscan stew comes from its history: “ribollita” means “reboiled,” and some say that the original version was made from the leftovers of yesterday’s minestrone, with bread added. Add just about any seasonal vegetable to the dish: cubed potato, parsnip, rutabaga or a handful of spinach.
Coconut milk is a fantastic simmer sauce — sturdy enough to boil and full of sweet, coconut flavor. Keep a few cans in the pantry and you can always make a delicious, creamy curry dinner in just a few minutes. Add cooked brown or jasmine rice from the co-ops’ deli and you’re done!

Add eye appeal to your salad with a colorful mix of red, blue and white new potatoes, drizzled with a light vinaigrette. Meat, fish or tofu done with a white or red balsamic marinade or glaze will bring a sweeter contrast to your meal.
